June is the Gateway to Summer…
For gorgeous, smooth skin you’ll feel ready to bare, you need to take a few simple steps. Try this head-to-toe refresher to take your skin out of hibernation.
1. Reveal Glowing Skin
Regular exfoliation can be a part of a healthy skin regimen no matter the season; as long as your skin is not sensitive, exfoliation can help you achieve smooth, healthy-looking skin that makes you look more glowing and youthful.
2. Remove Hair Without Irritation
Once you have removed that unwanted hair, it’s also important to care for the skin that’s newly exposed to the elements. Give your skin some time to recover before rolling out your beach towel or getting active outdoors. Stay out of the sun or heat for at least 48 hours after any hair-removal process.
3. Fight UV Rays With Food
Surprisingly , you can protect yourself from the inside too from the damaging UV rays. In addition to using sunblock, eat cooked tomatoes every day if you know you’re going to be in the sun, cooked tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that helps fight the effects of UV rays such as redness, swelling, and blistering from sunburn.
4. Clear Up Body Breakouts
It’s no better to have acne on your body than on the face, especially in the heat, treating acne on the back, chest, and elsewhere on the body is the same as treating facial acne: Exfoliate regularly, don’t pick, and treat with effective ingredients cleansing with products that contain salicylic acid helps slough off the dead skin cells.
5. Treat Your Feet
Get ready for summer sandals, your feet could probably use a little TLC. Jump-start your program with a salon pedicure, or if you’re short on time, remove thicker skin with a foot file, apply a rich emollient cream, then cover the feet in plastic wrap and cotton socks. Leave on overnight. Repeat every day until you achieve smooth skin, then once a week to maintain soft skin!
