Get Ready for the Summer Sun


Jon Bunting

In the Northern hemisphere, the winter is finally over. With the month of May just around the corner, many women all over the world are getting ready to forget all about cloudy skies and pale skin it brought with it. With the first long sunny days of the full-blown spring, it shouldn’t be a big surprise if you are one of those who are thinking about soaking in some of those rays and getting a bit of a tan.

While recent years thought pretty much everyone learned that tanning salons should definitely become a thing of the past (mainly thanks to their potential hazard to the user’s health), the sun, especially this early in the year, still seems enticing. But, sunbathing aside (which you should also get thoroughly prepared for), the stronger sun exposure of the upcoming late spring and summer demands some slight changes to your skin care routine. Here are the things you should tweak a bit in your skin care routine so you protect your skin in this new, sun-soaked environment.

Glasses and Hat are your Friends

The great thing about a pair of shades and a trendy summer hat is not only that they look cool, but also that they offer genuine protection. Physical barriers a much better protection than any sunscreen product and no part of your body needs this more than your face. A bigger pair of sunglasses will protect the skin around your eyes, while they will also make sure that the sun rays do not cause their gradual damage to the optic nerve (which is very small, but still it’s better to avoid it completely). The hat has a similar purpose which is to provide additional protection to the area of your neck and back of the head, being that they are sensitive and prone to sunburn.

The Use of Antioxidants

In the long run, antioxidants are one of the most important allies in the process of reducing skin damage caused by the sun. Using products that are rich in them will do plenty of good for you, especially if you do this after a cleansing session. Then, give the same product some time to be absorbed into your skin before you apply your moisturizer and/or makeup. This might be somewhat time-consuming, but it is well worth your effort.

Approach to Sunscreen

Sunscreen makes all the difference when it comes to being protected from the harmful UV rays, but not every sunscreen is the same. For your daily needs, a sunscreen based on a broad spectrum of UV protection should be employed. Also, used a different sunscreen formula for your face, preferably a product that will not clog your pores. And don’t forget to reapply it after a period of 4 or 5 hours.
