3 infallible tips for pampering your skin even at 30 degrees Celsius

Throughout the year we are all fortunate enough to enjoy a few months of warmth and good weather. Temperatures begin to rise slightly and discreetly during the spring, until suddenly we find ourselves in the middle of summer and we have not prepared for the inevitable heat waves.

Our long awaited vacations are here, we regain our freedom and we are eager to spend our days outdoors, whether at the beach or at the pool or walking around the town or the city, any place is ideal when you are on vacation.

We eagerly pack our bags, we organize every detail of our getaways and trips, we even try to go on unsustainable diets, but we leave aside what needs the most care and affection during this season: our skin.

The skin is the largest organ in our body, and although it may not seem so, it can be just as important as a lung or your heart.

Summer excesses and long exposure to sunlight (especially UVA and UVB rays) can take their toll on our skin in the form of spots, dehydration, wrinkles and lack of radiance.

In addition, when temperatures and humidity rise, the sebaceous glands of our skin are more active, so even sweat can irritate our skin and make it more sensitive to UVA and UVB rays and make it easier for even more imperfections to appear on our face and the rest of the body.

Learn how to prepare your skin for summer

In the same way that in winter we tend to take more and better care of our hands because the cold cracks our skin, what special care do you give your skin to combat the heat?

Today we present the 3 keys to protect your skin from UV rays and all the excesses of summer:

  • Sun protection – There is no point in having a daytime and/or nighttime facial care routine if when you go outside or especially spend the day at the beach you do not protect your skin with a high protection factor sunscreen. If you are unable to leave home without your sunglasses, it’s about time you start taking care of your skin like you take care of your eyes and protect it from the sun whenever you can.

Our advice? Always carry a travel-size sunscreen on hand. Sun exposure is the main cause of skin aging (causing 80% of wrinkles and spots), so applying sunscreen daily is undoubtedly the best and most affordable anti-aging treatment.

If, like many of us, you have avoided sunscreen until the side effects have become irremediable, you can find out how a regenerative medicine treatment could help you stop and/or disguise skin aging, or opt for a chemical peel if you are looking for immediate results with painless procedures that do not require anesthesia.

  • Exfoliation – We cannot forget that our body is also prepared to protect itself, and that is why the skin cells that cover our entire body are renewed approximately every 28 days. But
    Did you know that this cell renewal process slows down over the years?
    That’s why it’s so important that you too exfoliate to remove excess dead cells that your body is unable to eliminate.

To keep skin hydrated and radiant, and to promote skin regeneration and remove any impurities, it is essential to exfoliate once a week (face and body). Exfoliation not only smoothes the skin’s texture, but also activates circulation and helps the rest of the active ingredients in our routine to be absorbed and penetrate better into our epidermis.

  • Moisturizing – Heat dehydrates us as the water we retain in the inner layers of the skin evaporates, and dehydration is compounded by lack of elasticity and flaking. The good thing is that with good care you can keep your skin hydrated even in the desert, let’s see how to do it.
    • Hydrate yourself from the inside: the most important thing is to drink enough water.
    • Take care of your skin with infallible moisturizing ingredients (vegetable oils, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, etc.), antioxidant ingredients (green tea, niacinamide, Vitamin C and E, etc.) and soothing ingredients (calendula, chamomile, etc.).
    • Complement your routine with an aesthetic moisturizing treatment, either a hydrafacial or a deep hydration treatment with hyaluronic acid, to extract impurities and deep cleanse your honey while simultaneously hydrating and nourishing it.

There is another essential factor that we have not included in our list of key tips and that is nutrition. And we must be honest: no matter how much you moisturize, exfoliate and protect your skin from the sun, if you do not follow a balanced diet incorporating the necessary amounts of protein, legumes, fruits and vegetables in your diet, this will also be reflected in your skin.

So be well prepared to survive the rest of August and the rest of the hot days of the year without compromising your skin and the radiance that characterizes it. Start prioritizing skin care and give back the attention it deserves to the largest organ of your body and undoubtedly the most protective of all.
