If you normally have dry skin, you might love the humidity that comes with the summer season, giving your skin a youthful glow that doesn’t come with having to use lotions and moisturizers. Know that you should still do your part to take care of your skin even when the temperatures rise and you’re more prone to sweating. Bear these tips in mind to make your skin look and feel its best.
Use Cooler Water
While you might enjoy hot showers in the morning, they aren’t as necessary in the summer months when it’s almost equally hot outside. The reason for this is showering in hot water can make your dry skin feel even dryer. You’re also likely depriving yourself of the oil your skin needs to not feel so dry with those hot showers, so turn the dial back a bit this summer when it’s time to shower. When you dry off, pat your skin dry to keep some of the moisture right where it is.
Use a Good Moisturizer
Even though you’re likely to sweat more in the summer, that doesn’t mean you can stock your moisturizers away. The reason we recommend moisturizers is so you can get that fresh look that makes your skin glow and look youthful.
Take It Easy on the Air Conditioners
It might not seem like air conditioners can dry out your skin the way heaters can, but it’s entirely possible. Only use your air conditioner when you absolutely have to this summer to do what’s best for your dry skin. You can also use face misters to stay cool and give yourself healthy skin. If you’re in an area where you have no control over the air conditioner settings, be sure you use a quality moisturizer to keep your skin well-fed.
