Get Summer-Ready Skin!

May 20, 2010 at 1:00PM by Mary Delsener |

Face Matters

Summer's almost here and everyone wants to look their best summertime fun like beach parties and vacations, right? Well, the key to maintaining that natural glow is taking care of your skin. And just FYI — June is National Acne Awareness Month!

The change in temperature can cause big changes to your skin. In fact, a recent study published in The Journal of Dermatology said that a majority of patients claimed their acne worsened as the temperature rises up due to increased oil production, sweating, and humidity. This is a great time to make an appointment with your dermatologist and review your skincare plan before the warmer months arrive.

One thing we need to remind you is that it's a myth that tanning is an acceptable skin care regime during the summer. Tanning can do some serious damage to your skin. Always wear at least SPF 30 sunscreen when you and your friends head outside to lounge by the pool! Also, there are lots of little lifestyle changes you can make to ensure that you have clear skin all summer long. Drink plenty of water, eat fresh fruit, and exfoliate to get rid of dry, flaky skin.

What are some things you do to keep your skin healthy? How do you change your skincare routine in the summer?

XoXo,

Mary
