Nurturing Your Skin After the Summer Sun
Contributor

While tanned skin can make you look really attractive and even hide some of the imperfections of your body, it is not without its dangers. UV rays have negative effects on your skin. Everybody knows that they are the reason for all that sunscreen that you have to apply and reapply throughout the summer. When the fall comes, and the beach season is over, you need to start your own skin rehab program to rejuvenate your skin.

Homemade Cosmetics

You already have the most of the things that you need to take care of your skin. Effects of the sun are coarse skin, dry skin, new wrinkles and sun spots. Coarse and dry skin are the reasons for the wrinkling. In order to fi this, you need to make exfoliating products for your skin, as well as the moisturizing and hydrating masks. In order to exfoliate your skin, you can mix a handful of blueberries with a tablespoon of natural honey. Add some sugar and mix it all well. You might be tempted to eat this mixture, but rather put in on your face. Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse. Preparing the moisturizer takes a bit longer than this. Heat 4oz of shea butter and add 2 tablespoons of almond oil. Cool it down and leave it in the fridge for 15 minutes. When it turns solid, add 5 drops of tea tree and 5 drops of lavender oil.

Necessary Products

For all those that are not into DIY and they would rather buy the products, here is the necessary kit. You definitely need a face scrub mask, moisturizer and daily and night cream. Once a week, you need to apply a rich face mask of your choice. It all depends on your skin type. While most of women already know their favorite cosmetic brands, they sometimes experiment. The summer is not the time to experiment. Your skin is stressed by the sun, so use only the products you are sure about.

Professional Help

Regardless of how experienced you are with your skin care, professionals always do it better. At some point, women find professional treatments expensive. But, when it comes to taking care of your skin after it was exposed to the sun, sea and salt, you shouldn’t save. Take a trip to a facial rejuvenation clinic and let the professionals take care of you. That is the least you can do to refresh your skin.

When you take care of your skin, you need to remember that it is not only the outside that counts. Dry and coarse skin are the results of exposure to the sun, but also the results of not enough water in your system. You need to make sure that you eat properly and drink a lot of water and tea. Fruit and vegetables, green smoothies and lemon water need to become the majority of your meals throughout the day. That is how your body will have enough vitamins, fibers and water to support strong and healthy skin.
