With the arrival of summer, it’s important to pay special attention to our skin care. Intense UV rays, heat, and humidity can negatively impact our skin, causing dehydration, irritation, or even sunburn. At Alira Med Spa, we prioritize your well-being and want to share some tips for maintaining radiant and healthy skin during the summer season.
Essential Hydration: The first step in summer skin care is ensuring proper hydration. Increase your water intake to keep your skin and body hydrated from within. Additionally, use a lightweight, broad-spectrum moisturizer that protects your skin from UV rays while providing hydration. Remember to reapply it every few hours, especially if you’re exposed to the sun for long periods.
Sun Protection, Your Best Ally: Sunscreen usage is crucial year-round, but especially during summer. Choose a sunscreen with an appropriate sun protection factor (SPF) for your skin type and generously apply it to all exposed areas. Don’t forget to protect your lips with an SPF lip balm. Additionally, consider wearing protective clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses to shield your skin from harmful sun radiation.
