Kiss summer skin goodbye with these end of summer skin care tips from Dr. Lloyd
Summer is already over and we are not ready to say goodbye! Like it or not, the weather is changing, and your skin care routine will need to change too. As the days get drier and cooler, your skin’s needs will change from what they were during the hot, humid summer months. Here are a couple of tips for better skin care at the end of summer.
Your hair and skin may be damaged by the sun and chlorine from pools and other summer-related activities. You can help to repair some of that damage by gently exfoliating, moisturizing, and rehydrating your skin, hair, and nails. Exfoliate with a gentle face wash like glytone and moisturize with something like SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid. Rehydrate your body and skin by drinking enough water daily. Consider repairing the damaged skin on your feet, by showing them some extra love with vaseline or your thick moisturizer at night. If you have calluses consider AmLactin or Lac-Hydrin.
The sun doesn’t stop shining as the days get cooler, and it doesn’t stop burning your skin either. Keep wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen every day even though summer is over. Don’t neglect your lips either—use a protective lip balm to keep your skin safe. Use moisturizer to protect your skin from dry, harsh air that may cause damage.
Seasons change, and you must change your skin care routine to suit the season. Try these tips for the end of summer to maintain flawless skin all fall and even into winter.
