The summer months may be difficult on your skin. Your skin may become dry, greasy, or irritated when exposed to the sun, heat, or humidity. That is why, you must take the extra steps to protect and maintain your healthy, supple skin. Here are some suggestions to keep your skin healthy and glowing this summer season:
- Use sunscreen
Sunscreen is necessary to shield your skin from the sun’s damaging UV radiation. All exposed skin should be covered with broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which you must reapply every two hours.
- Drink plenty of water
Drink a lot of water to keep your skin well-hydrated. Alcohol and sugary beverages should be avoided as they might dry out your skin which can result in sunburns since you are always out in the sun.
Your skin still needs moisture to keep it healthy, even if it is prone to being oily in the heat. To keep your skin moisturized, apply a mild moisturizer that is free of oil and keep your skin hydrated especially after being exposed to the sun to soothe your skin.
Exfoliating helps maintain your skin’s suppleness and improve its texture by removing dead skin cells. To prevent irritating your skin, use a mild exfoliant once or twice a week.
- Avoid the noon sun
The sun is at its heaviest from 10 am to 4 pm. To prevent sunburn and other sun damage at this time, as much as possible try to avoid sun exposure and stay inside or find shade.
- Try skin treatments
After all that fun under the sun, Terra Wellness Spa offers the perfect treatment for your sun-kissed skin, a Fresh Aloe Vera and Cucumber Body Wrap. Replenish your skin’s moisture after long sun exposure. This wrap contains vitamin C and E and antioxidants that naturally heal the skin and help reduce skin pigmentation.

- Wear sun-protective clothes
Cover your arms and legs with light, loose-fitting clothing, and cover your face and neck with a wide-brimmed hat. There are also clothes and umbrellas which have a sun protection factor (SPF) which could help you to protect yourself from sun damage.
Now that you are aware of the recommendations that can help you maintain healthy, enjoy your much-needed summer vacation and keep radiant skin all summer long.
