Summers here which means sun, water, friends, beer, music and fun. But dont forget about your skin or you might regret it when winter rolls around. Here are some helpful ways to keep your face looking great all summer long.
1. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. It may be tempting to try and get tan fast but its best to wear some spf and protect your skin which can cause premature wrinkles and lines. You will still get sun on your face and a tan, you will just be doing it in a protected way.
2. Moisturize. Using moisturizer is important in both winter and summer. In the winter it is great for protection from dry patches and wind burn, in summer its needed to prevent excess dry out and peeling which isn't good for your skin and creates an older looking appearance. So smother on some good quality moisturizer before bed, and again after you wash your face in the morning to help you throughout the day.
3. Sleep. Not getting enough sleep really can effect your skin. It can lead to increased wrinkles, bags under your eyes and can increase the aging effecting on your skin. Decreasing stress and getting enough sleep are both crucial to keeping your youthful appearance.
4. Hydrate. Staying hydrated is good not only for your skin, but your energy level and overall well being. Lots of guys simply aren't getting enough water daily. According to Healthline, you need eight 8 ounce glasses of water per day to stay hydrated. If you don't get enough water, it can leave your skin dried out and can increase appearance of lines and wrinkles. An added benefit to staying hydrated is it can help you to lose or maintain your weight- because often times when you feel hungry you are really just thirsty.
