How To Avoid Dry Skin Over The Summer Months
The long, cold, wet winter is over and summer is finally upon us! That means trips to the beach, local parks and plenty of time spent outdoors in general. While the warmer weather is great for our mental health, the same can’t always be said for our physical health — or more specifically: our skin.
Prolonged exposure to dry, hot environments can have a range of negative effects on your skin and its overall health. If you’re somebody who suffers from dry, itchy or flakey skin in the summer months, The Beauty & Brow Parlour is here to offer some simple advice to help you cope.
Limit Exposure To Direct Sunlight
Everybody loves basking in those warm rays of sunlight, we know. If you are spending time outdoors, it’s important to wear a hat and some sort of light fabric covering for your body. Try to also find a warm sport that affords you some sort of shade, and always remember to use high-quality sunscreen. Most dermatologists will recommend using sunscreen with an SPF rating of at least 30.
Drinking water will help to stop your skin from drying out and provide a range of other benefits for your physical health. It’s recommended that you consume at least 8 to 10 cups a day. Keeping your fluid levels up will ensure your skin and your body is able to produce all the natural lubricants and oils it needs to stay healthy.
Eat A Balanced Diet
We all tend to indulge a little bit during this festive period, and that’s completely fine. In fact — it’s necessary. It’s important not to deprive yourself of things that bring you joy. However, moderation is the key. Making sure that you don’t go overboard with the sweet treats can help your skin from breakouts and irritation. Ensuring you offset the indulgence with a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will also benefit you greatly.
Try Professional Skin Procedures
There’s only so much you do for your skin at home with the tools you have at your disposal.
