IT'S GETTING HOT HOT HOT! 3 THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN THIS SUMMER!

Summers almost here! You know what that means : hot beach trips, crazy festivals, delicious picnics and a lot of cool outdoorsy fun activities to enjoy! But all this fun in the sun can wreak havoc on your precious skin if you don't take the proper precautions. Here are 3 simple ways to enjoy your summer but also protect your healthy glowing skin :)




1.) I Scream, You Scream...For Sunscreen!


Sunscreen is the best way to protect your skin. The sun emits harmful rays that can penetrate and damage your skin slowly over time. These rays can be classified into two groups: UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays stand for Ultra Violet Aging Rays. These rays are responsible for collagen degradation and premature aging of the skin.

Ouch, ouch, ouch!! We've all experienced the dreaded sun burn! It burns and stings and your skin is peeling off like a poor little jungle snake. Well you can thank UVB rays for that, cause they're the responsible culprits! UVB rays stand for Ultra Violet Burning Rays, and they do exactly what they say...they burn! When you get a sunburn, you're causing severe, irreversible, damage to your skin. Your'e also risking your life! Melanoma which is a form of skin cancer is no joke and can be a serious life and health risk if not detected in time so you better think twice before you get your tan on!

Without proper daily protection, your skin will lose its natural youthfullness and glow to these suckers, so slather it up! Protect your fountain of youth and watch out for these rays. With a good broad-spectrum sunscreen, you'll be protected and ready to go! ;)

My personal favorite sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch.






2.) Floppy Hats!

We all know that floppy hats are an awesome fashion statement. When you think about floppy hats, you can't help to think about rich and obnoxious old-school glamour! But that's not all they're good for..can you say extra sun-protection! Take your sun protection up a notch by rocking a sun hat! Not only will you look fabulous, but you're ensuring that your skin is properly protected!







3.) Stay Hydrated!

We know that the sun beating down on you all day can leave your body parched and in need of some serious hydration. Keep your body hydrated! Walk around with a full 2L water bottle or snack on some hydrating fruits like watermelon and pineapple chunks throughout the day. Your skin will thank you in all of its plump and well-hydrated glory :)



So there you have it, my top 3 tips on how to keep your skin healthy and protected in the summer. What are your tips for glowing, healthy skin in the summer time? I'd like to know! Comment down below :)

  2. Neutrogena Dry Touch is my favorite sunscreen too! Sometimes I miss it with a little rosehip oil if I want something lighter.
