3 ways to protect your skin from the heat
Here are 3 tips to help you beat the heat and keep your skin in tip-top shape.
One of the simplest things you can do to protect your skin is to wear sunscreen any time you’ll be spending an extended amount of time in the sun. Sunscreen should be applied 15-30 minutes before you go out. Additionally, a good sunscreen should be water resistant, SPF 15 or higher, and give you broad-spectrum protection.
In addition to wearing sunscreen, protective clothing can help to ward off sunburn and subsequent skin damage. For starters, wearing a hat, preferably one that covers your ears, will protect your scalp from harmful rays. There are also sun-safe clothing options designed to ward off the rays. Just make sure you choose garments with UPF labels.
Skin Care Routine
A great skin care routine will also help you keep your skin radiant and protected, and choosing the right skin care products and routine is contingent on your skin type. You can learn more about skin types and the six basics of skin care here.
