Connecting Fashion Around The World
As the days grow warmer, you’ll want to wear something more appropriate for the rising temperatures. That means you’ll probably be showing more skin so you’ll want to be sure your skin is looking its best. Searching for that elusive “natural glow” can seem like an impossible challenge. With the right techniques and products, though, you’ll be well on your way to healthy, beautiful skin.
As temperatures soar and you spend more time outside, you’ll likely find you’re sweating more and in desperate need of a shower at the end of the day. If that’s the case, it’s okay to shower, just be sure not do overdo it. Most soaps and cleansers are full of ingredients that strip the oils in your skin away. So, if you’re showering too often, your skin will be dry and diminished, even with more humidity in the air.
A long, hot shower or bath can be a perfect way to unwind at the end of a long day. The problem is, though, that hot water wreaks havoc on your skin. The high temperatures dry your skin out and can lead to redness, itchiness, and cracked skin. That’s why it’s important to keep the temperature as close to lukewarm as possible and (as mentioned above) shower only as often as necessary. This will help keep your skin hydrated and balanced and ensure you maintain that healthy glow.
Something else that wreaks havoc on your skin is the sun. Dermatology companies like Countryside Dermatology & Laser Center, doctors, and just about anyone who truly has your best interests at heart have been saying for many years how the sun can totally destroy your skin, over time. To be sure, the short-term benefits of a nice tan might seem to outweigh any long-term risks. However, that glow will be replaced with dry, leathery skin, depleted collagen, and, of course, leave you with a greatly increased risk of skin cancer.
The best way to keep your skin nourished is to let your body’s natural oils do most of the heavy lifting. You can achieve a good balance of these oils by following the tips listed above. If, however, the oils need a helping hand from time to time, ensure that any moisturizers you use contain only natural ingredients. Many moisturizers are filled with cheap fillers and petroleum byproducts. These chemicals can harm your skin and block your pores, leading to breakouts. By feeding your skin with ingredients it loves, you’ll be well on your way to a healthy, natural glow.
If your skin has been without a glow for a while, it’s still important to love your skin. It didn’t become damaged overnight and it won’t be repaired overnight, either. Celebrate progress you achieve and remain diligent in your skin care regimen. Soon, you’ll have the glow you’re looking for and can proudly show off that skin, once again.
