Keeping glamorous skin during the summer time
Summer, Summer, Summer. Do you have any plans for summer vacations or social gatherings? Any exciting plans? Summer is the best season for traveling, exercising, gathering, playing and loving. However, it is also the best season (or should I say BAD season) for getting sweaty, dry, sunburn and break out skin. Isn’t it so hot and humid outside, but cold and dry inside? These fluctuating temperature and air condition make our skin more complex and unhealthy, so taking care of our skin in the summer is an essential step! Here are some of tips and guides you need to remember! Well do not just remember, take it into action!
Cleaning your dead skin is the basic step to maintaining glamorous skin for the summer. If you keep your dead surface and apply functional beauty products, you will not get any surprised outcomes. Using scrubs and pilling gel is the fundamental way to exfoliate your skin. But don’t forget to use those products once or twice a week. If you over use it, your skin layer is going to be thinner and it may lead to weaker skin surface.
7 layered toners is a way to keep and maintain your healthy skin surface. Does it sound like it’s a lot of work? It is not complicated process. Just apply toner on the cotton pad and rub it on your skin OR use clean hands and gently tap it onto your skin. Repeat this 7 times with new cotton pad containing toner.
So, why is this beneficial to your skin? It can remove dust on your skin and clean up the dead surface skin cells. Also, it is the way to hydrate your skin before applying essence or moisturizing cream. This may sound like an insane step, but try out the 7 layer toner on days when your skin feels extra de-hydrated, it does wonders!
Fun Fact: Currently, there is an interesting beauty trend going on in the K-beauty World, it is called toner wash. Toner wash is exactly what it sounds like it is, “Toner Wash”. After basic cleansing, you mix in toner with water and wash your face. That’s it! It is becoming more popular among innovative beauty lovers. If you wash your face with toner at the end of your cleansing process, it brings fresher and cleaner finish. Also it can be the beginning of your skin care routine.
2. Keeping hydrated
Especially, in the summer time, we lose hydration and energy due to the burning HOT sun. But! There is a way to stay well-hydrated and fresh.
Drinking water is the best and the cheapest option to take hydration not only for our body, but also for our skin. Drinking a least of 3 liters of water daily is recommended for an adult. Drinking water is not only good for your health but also your skin. It is the secret key to clear skin.
Additionally, did you know watermelon is literally one of the greatest fruits ever? According to watermelon.org, watermelon has various nutrition like, vitamin B6, A, potassium and antioxidant power. It contains mostly 92% of water, so it can be great alternation of water. YES, 92% of the watermelon is actual H2O.
Don’t forget your skin. You can feed moisture into your skin via diverse ways, but using sheet masks are the best! Some people think sheet masks are only for fall and winter season, but that is mistake! We need to start taking care of our skin by using sheet masks at every season (or every day!). Sheet masks are definitely for moisturizing, but it can have more magical functions like anti-wrinkle, brightening and calming, you name it. You can easily pick your sheet masks regarding to your skin concern. Also, don’t forget to clean your face before using sheet mask.
3. Taking a cold showers
Say goodbye to steamy HOT showers. Cooling down the temperature of your body and skin can help you to survive in the deadly hot summer time. Taking cold showers may sound horrifying, but cold temperature can help our body to keep warm, since it makes more overall oxygen rates in our body.
Slightly cold water can bring glossy skin and hair. According to Medical Daily, using cold water can tighten our cuticles and pores whether than using hot water which can dry out our skin. Also, it can improve circulation of blood in our body, so it helps to beat some problems of the skin and heart. If you are afraid at using cold water, you can take warm shower and can end up with cold water. Just deal with cold water 5 second then you can get those benefits.
4. No more sunburns
Have you ever heard that the biggest enemy of aging skin caused due to sun-light? Sun-light is like a monster, so you need to protect your skin if you want to maintain youthful skin. Sunscreen, SPF is really, really important in the summer time. Sun-light can damage and break down collagen in our skin fiber, so it is the main reason of dead skin and wrinkles. There are two types of sunscreens, light absorption and light scattering. Light absorption sunscreens absorb different light from sun and break down the energy to avoid sun damages. It does not have any color, but it may irritate your eye. Therefore, avoid your eye while applying. Light scattering sun care products are slightly different with sun absorption. It scatters the light and defend the skin surface. This type has little bit of color, but it is non-irritating on eyes.
Using sun care product isn’t the only way to maintain healthy skin and avoiding sunlight, but also consuming SPF. Eating SPF? Do we need to eat sunscreen? No. You can protect sun damages by eating vitamins C and E. Vitamin C and E have sun protective function. Therefore, you can simply buy vitamins from drug stores or fruits containing C and E like orange, pineapple and grapefruits.
