Sun damage to your skin shows up as dark and rough patches, freckles, and moles, and too much exposure can accelerate wrinkles and cause sagging skin.

With the arrival of Summer, It's important to focus on sun and heat protection, in addition to keeping your skin hydrated and maintaining your regular skincare routine.

 

 

Protect Your Lips

Your lips need sunscreen, and since the sun can be extremely drying, keeping them soft and smooth with a rich lip balm with SPF 15 or higher is essential. We recommend  Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20.

Don't forget to reapply it when you're outside.

 

 

Protect Your Scalp

Long hair does offer some shade from the sun, but the sensitive skin along your hairline can still get burned. Use a sunscreen mist spray along your hair parting as it's harder for creams to be absorbed there.

We like Banana Boat Sports Quik Dry Scalp spray sunscreen, available in SPF 30, the scalp sunscreen spray is clear and practically dries instantly.

 

Exfoliate Your Body

One of the most effective ways to exfoliate during the summer is to use a scrub on dry skin before you shower.

Pay special attention to knees and elbows. We appreciate the au natural organic route and recommend a DIY scrub like Fresh Lemon and SeaSalt.

 

 

Hydrate

Our bodies are 60% water by weight, and proper hydration is absolutely essential for our overall health.

Vogueffects recommends Cetaphil’s Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion has been formulated with a combination of five key ingredients that help keep your skin hydrated for 24 hours.

The formula is non-greasy, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free, making it perfect for those who have sensitive skin types, it's also super affordable.

 

Non-Greasy Suncream

Lots of sunblocks break you out, but it’s still a necessity in preventing premature aging, sunspots, and blackheads.

For on the go touch ups, we like Shiseido's Wetforce Clear Stick UV Protector Broad Spectrum 50+.

This clear, convenient formula works just as great under makeup as it does over it, making it perfect for touch-ups on the beach.

 

 If you're diligent about taking care of your skincare routine, on occasions when you decide to go without a full face of makeup, not only will your skin be fresh and glowing with natural luminosity, but clean, clear and protected from sun damage.
