Now that spring is around the corner the summer skin plan should be under way. You may even be going on a spring brake. Even though we start a summer skin plan do realze that it will change as the summer goes on. First start with new suntan lotion. I get water-proof suntan lotion so when the pools do open I'm all set. When you do pick up your suntan lotion also pick up or make a homemade after the day in the sun, lotion as well. Your skin will need the moisturizer.
We seem to start out the summer with pail skin, turn red and may even peal. From spring break, working in the yard, or out- door sports. In this early part of the summer our skin builds up its own skin block to the sun, meaning we can stay out longer with out burning. Where the summer skin plan may break down is those hot days of summer where we stay inside for 2 to 3 weeks. Our summer skin plan is working.
Now we are at the end of July and it is vacation time!!! As we hit the beach we have lost some of the natural sun block we got in the spring. In a sence we are starting over with out knowing it. Now we have 1 to 2 weeks of vacation here lets not spend it running from one beach umbrella to the other. Start out the vacation with the higher sun block and then try to lower it as the vacation goes on if you are looking for that beach tan.
The main point here is when you come up with a summer skin plan realize that it will change as your summer goes on.
I have had a lot of trips with overnights in the south this spring. A I did hit the pool. Like everyone else at the pool I put on my sun block at the pool. One tip put on the suntan lotion a 1/2 hr. before going out in the sun. Also I got burnt where I had missed putting on the sunblock. ggg Yes it did look funny. And yes it did hurt under my arms for a couple of days. Tip two pit in your suntan lotion on ALL OVER. I already need to adjust my summer skin plan.
Here are some more summer skin plan tips that will help you get ready for this summer!
Formulate A Summer Skincare Plan by News Canada July 28, 2002
(NC) - Avoid a summer beauty crisis by properly preparing skin for the warm weather. Summer skin care dilemmas are two-fold - increased dryness due to water loss, wind and sun, as well as increased oil production from outdoor sports and heat. Preparing the face and body for increased outdoor exposure will aid in preventing an onslaught of summer skin dilemmas.
Summer moisturizers should feel light and weightless on your skin. For face, use an oil-free moisturizer that contains a sunscreen.
A good product to try is RoC® Retinol Actif Pur Day SPF 15.
Water remains key. Eight, 8-oz glasses a day is the minimum required. Herbal teas can also be substituted for water. These fluids help detoxify the skin and keep it looking moist and dewy.
If you're conscious about cellulite, the use of a body contouring cream such as RoC® Body Contouring Triple Action can help eliminate the appearance of cellulite on thighs, buttocks and hips. While waiting for results, try using a sunless tanner to help conceal cellulite, which tends to be less noticeable on darker skin. Vitamin supplements are important in maintaining healthy skin. Flaxseed oil is a popular choice as it is good for the skin, the heart and it is also an anti-carcinogenic. Stock up on fresh fruits, vegetables and green salads, which help to replace fluids.
Adequate fluid intake helps to keep the system well flushed and removes toxins and wastes. This, in turn, helps keep the skin clear and problem-free.
Looking to rid skin of post-shave bikini line bumps? A simple and effective cure is chamomile tea bags. First, cleanse the area with soap and water. Then lie down and place cool, damp tea bags over the irritated skin.
Chamomile contains anti-inflammatory properties, so it is very calming on the skin.
Choose the appropriate sun protection for your skin type. For those with sensitive skin, a good product to try is RoC® Minesol™ SPF 40 - with 100% mineral filters and a rub-proof, water-resistant formula, it's proven to guard even the most sensitive skin against sun damage. Don't forget to use sunscreen on hands. Hands are exposed to the sun year round, and are the first place on the body to show signs of aging.
These signs are often visible in the form of dark spots and sagging skin.
Walk barefoot. It's a good form of massage, helping to strengthen foot muscles, energize aching and tired feet and acts as a natural pumice. .
