Busting the myth of not hydrating the skin while at home!
Summer is finally here! Que the rose all-day rooftop parties, finger-licking barbeques, and much-needed beach days. Not to ruin the mood, but also que that uneven and dry skin due to trying to adjust to humid temperatures and the blazing sun rays. Which is said to be getting closer to our planet every day due to global warming, however... that’s another story for another day. (Tell Greta Thunberg We Said What Up!)
Instead of caking on bronzer and highlighters to create a false dewy look, use this time while you’re sitting at home, to implement a hydrating skincare routine that locks in moisture and protects your skin during these hot summer days.
Did you know that you can gain the majority of the hydration for your skin from an aloe vera plant? Yup, that’s right. A green aloe vera leaf that you can purchase at your local grocery store. This plant helps rejuvenate dull and dry skin and leaves your skin looking and feeling clear and youthful.
Whether you’re looking to improve your current skincare routine or create a new one from scratch, the focus needs to be about keeping your skin hydrated so that it can flourish this summer. The best way to lock in that moisture is to focus on a heavier skincare routine at night, which allows your skin to soak in all of the yumminess you’re feeding it overnight.
A few other things you want to remember to ensure your skin is healthy and ready for summer:
- Wash off old makeup and dirt
- Wash your face in the morning and before bed
- Drink water
- Use a moisturizer that includes sunscreen
