Skin Survival Skills For The Silly Season

Looking forward to sitting back and relaxing during the summer holidays? We all are! Hey, we’ve worked hard this year, so don’t we deserved a spot of relaxation, and even a bit of silliness? 

While we probably do deserve to take a break and get some relaxation time, we can never stop caring about our skin.

Here’s what to bear in mind.

Sunblock – Use sunblock every day, whatever your plans. If you really dislike wearing sunblock, ask your skin advisor for help – with so many to choose from, there’s bound to be a product that you love.

Alcohol – Driving is not the only reason to watch your alcohol, so don’t just think of yourself as designated driver – you can be your own designated skin carer! So that you don’t wake up one morning at the end of summer checking out new wrinkles in your mirror, I suggest drinking one glass of water for each glass of alcohol.

Stop smoking – Smoking limits the flow of blood and therefore nutrients and oxygen to your skin. Smoking causes skin to age earlier than it should.

Eat your greens – Am I sounding like your mother? Well, maybe mother was right. Greens are so good for our gut and our skin, so you have absolute permission to go silly this silly-season on the greens and don’t hold back.

Avoid too much sweetness – This can be a tough ask with so many treats about. Your body and skin will thank you, though, if you avoid too many sweet foods or drinks. As with alcohol, drink a glass of water for every glass of soft drink or juice. Sugary foods and drinks contribute to acne, so people with acne will do better off the beer; wine or spirits might suit you better.

Oops, get sunburnt? – Use a Vitamin C serum, ASAP. It will help your skin deal with the UVs and decrease the damage to skin cells. Oh, and give your skin a good rest in the shade (and out of the wind) for a few days.

 And most of all, have fun…

I think you’ll agree, none of these skin-survival skills will stand in the way of you having fun. So, I wish you a wonderful festive season that will be relaxing and rejuvenating, and everything you hope for.
