Summer is a time for fun in the sun, but it can also be a time for breakouts and skin irritation. With higher temperatures, our skin tends to produce more oil, making it prone to acne and other skin problems. Luckily, there are steps you can take to maintain clear skin in the summer — and Studio 360 Med Spa & Boutique is here to help!
1. Cleanse Your Skin Regularly
It’s essential to cleanse your skin regularly, especially during the summer months when sweat and dirt can clog your pores. Use a gentle cleanser twice a day to remove impurities and excess oil from your skin.
2. Stay Hydrated
Drinking water is crucial for keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. Dehydration can lead to dry, flaky skin and make it more prone to breakouts. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin looking fresh and glowing.
3. Use Sunscreen
Did you know you should be putting sunscreen on every day? Sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, preventing sunburn and premature aging, and reducing the risk of skin cancer. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even when there are clouds in the forecast.
4. Avoid Touching Your Face
Your hands are a breeding ground for bacteria, and touching your face can transfer these bacteria to your skin, leading to breakouts. Try to avoid touching your face as much as possible, and if you must touch it, make sure your hands are clean first.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores, leaving your skin looking fresh and smooth. However, be careful not to overdo it as excessive exfoliation can damage your skin’s natural barrier. Ask our team what exfoliant we recommend for your skin type.
6. Get a Facial
Facials are a great way to give your skin an extra cleanse while hydrating and rejuvenating. Some of our facials at Studio 360 Med Spa & Boutique include:
