Days at the beach, picnics at the park, weekends spent hiking and camping—whatever your interest, summer is prime time for outdoor adventures. As fun as these activities are, the time we spend outside also comes with challenges: elevated exposure to UV rays, pollution and various other factors that can lead to skin aging. So how to deal? Here are a few summer skin care tips from the experts at Dermalogica:
1. Hydrate from the inside out
Summer can dehydrate your skin, and applying moisturizer alone isn’t enough! Drink plenty of water, and keep a hydrating mist handy for an afternoon spritz o’clock. Your skin will thank you.
2. Sun protection is key
Even if you’ll only be outside for a few minutes, liberally apply (and reapply) your favorite physical or chemical sunscreen.
3. Repair and prevent damage
Antioxidants like vitamin C help your skin fight back against sun damage and premature signs of aging—so find a formula that works for you and use it daily.
