The sunny warm days have returned! Before eating up those rays and exposing yourself, here are some suggestions to help you protect your skin and keep that hydrated glow!
 
HYDRATE your skin from the inside AND the outside. Kick up the H2O intake and cut down on the caffeine and tasty cocktails, if possible. Summer time sun exposure, long warm nights with crafty drinks always lead me to sleepy mornings and a cup load of coffee! Bye Bye hydration, hello lines, wrinkles and sunburn!

EXFOLIATE your skin regularly for even tanning. Be gentle with your skin, it is not a charred pot and you will just be causing microscopic scratches all over your skin. This will cause sensitivity and uneven tanning! Your goal is to gently lift and remove dead skin cells from the surface and not strip the skin, rather hydrate it. Utilizing a gentle exfoliant or resurfacing treatment is best for your skin. Even better, is that you can use these on a daily basis to keep your skin well prepared and hydrated to eat up some sun, while maintaining a healthy and hydrated glow!

EXPOSURE to UV rays. Exposing yourself to the sun gradually will allow your skin to slowly adapt, reducing the chance of a sunburn and inflammation. Once you get a burn and you start to peel, your tan will continue to be uneven and blotchy.

WAXING AWAY unwanted hair! I know it is the season that us ladies want to wax everything away, I know I do! Lets just remember that waxing is another from of exfoliation to the skin and sometimes our sensitivity is increased, causing the sun to affect our skin in a stronger manner. I always suggest for client to stay out of the direct sun for at least 24-48 hours. Allow the skin to naturally heal and prepare for direct sun exposure. Then, hydrate well and soak it up!

BLOODY MARY consumption is a good thing! Loving this blog now! Cooked tomatoes are high in lycopene’s. These are special little anti-oxidants that help against the effects of UV rays: redness, inflammation, sunburns. Enjoy that pasta or grilled tomatoe’s and burrata! All with a Bloody Mary of course.

 

 

CLEAR SKIN. Skin with breakouts tend to be more sensitive in those areas, causing them to “tan” much faster due to the increased melanin production for protection. Clear those up with with daily exfoliation from head to toe:
