1. Start drinking more water
I know that it’s public knowledge but you’d be surprised how many clients we see whose skin is showing visible signs of dehydration. A lot of water and electrolytes are lost due to sweating during summer. Increasing your water intake will assist your cells in carrying out their normal enzymatic functions, including increasing its elasticity to avoid those fine lines and wrinkles later on and replenishing your skin tissue. By getting in the habit of 6-8 glasses a day and you’ll be laughing by the time summer comes ’round.
2. Boost your skin with Hydrators
Sometimes even if you’ve been drinking all the water and wearing sunscreen, but you still noticed that your skin looks dull and dehydrated? You can improve your skin’s overall quality and compensate for any loss in your skin’s natural collagen and hyaluronic acid with Skin Hydration injections or “Skin Boosters”. It works by pulling and holding moisture into a gel particle injected just below the skin’s surface, which makes the skin always hydrated and constantly looking radiant. It will have you glowing all season long since the treatment can last for up to three to six months.
3. Soothe Sunburns
For the price of tan, we’ve all suffered a sunburn or two. Luckily, rubbing plain yogurt on your skin for 10 minutes will help restore your skin’s natural barrier. In addition to this remedy don’t forget to use aloe vera. But not as simple as that, you need to freeze aloe vera gel by filling an ice cube tray with aloe vera gel and pop in the freezer. To make your skin calm and rehydrate apply the ice cubes to burnt or sore skin.
4. Buffer up your fave face mist
There should always be one in your beach bag and keep one on your desk at the office as well and trust us, your skin will be thanking you all spring and summer long! It can provide an extra layer of hydration to rejuvenate your skin throughout the day and not only will a quick spritz keep you feeling cool and refreshed.
