The secrets to great summer skin

26 November 2015, 08:48African Extracts

No matter how you treat your skin, how great your regime is or the quality of the products you use, in summer it’s imperative to always, always protect your skin from the sun.

Going to the beach

Try to keep off of the beach between 10 and 3. A great rule of thumb is that if your shadow is longer than you are tall, it’s much safer to be outside embracing in the sun.

When you’re putting on sunscreen, don’t wait until your toes are already in the sand! Apply it 20 minutes beforehand to give it has time to absorb into the skin and then re-apply every hour or as needed.

Other sun protection

It often goes unnoticed, but many medications can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Next time you speak to a doctor or pharmacist, make sure to check that your medication isn’t jeopardizing your skin.

A good pair of sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection doesn’t just protect your corneas from the harmful rays of the sun, but also the sensitive skin around your eyes that’s prone to wrinkling.

Stay hydrated

Our skin also loses plenty of water, so moisturise morning and night, every single day and try to drink plenty of water; two litres a day is a good benchmark to set yourself.

Rinse your skin after you've been in a chlorinated swimming pool; chlorine is extremely harsh and will dry your skin. Afterwards, be sure to moisturise so you can return some of that moisture you’ve lost.
