A woman who carefully cares for her skin should know that not all cosmetic procedures can be performed in the summer heat. In warm time, starting in mid-May, the skin requires special care to preserve youth and beauty. The sun has a negative effect on the skin: under the ultraviolet rays, it loses a huge amount of moisture, becomes thinner, new wrinkles appear and old ones are aggravated. Also at this time, a lot of sebum is released, which contributes to the formation of acne. So what kind of cosmetic skin care procedures can be performed in the summer?
Facial cleansing is the most popular skin care procedure. This procedure should be carried out only in the summer. In hot weather, the pores expand and the skin becomes a habitat for bacteria, dust and dirt. But the cleaning procedure should be extremely gentle. Pilling cleaning is very good at this time of year.
What can not be done with the skin in the summer?
In the summer, it is highly recommended not to carry out certain manipulations with the skin, namely:
- apply tonics and lotions based on alcohol to the skin;
- clean skin with rough scrubs;
- squeeze acne, blackheads and the like;
- carry out laser treatment due to the fact that the risk of infection at this time of the year is significantly increased;
- to conduct mesotherapy.
All these procedures can be perfectly replaced using foams, mousses, fine grinding scrubs and with a loose structure, since it is still difficult to do without scrubbing. In summer, chlorhexidine can be used as an antiseptic. It is also very useful to wash with a decoction of chamomile, prepared with the calculation of 1 tablespoon of daisies per glass of boiling water.
How to protect the skin in the summer?
All summer skin products should have moisturizing properties, but not nourishing, so in summer it is recommended to apply cosmetics that contain sunscreen components to the skin. The cream should be as light as possible and absorb well into the skin. The cream most suitable for hot weather is water or oxygen based.
Particular attention should be paid to the skin around the eyes. In order to protect it from the sun, you can use sunglasses. You can also purchase special moisturizers for the eyelids.
Moisturizing the skin in the summer
Moisturizing the skin is the main cosmetic task of a woman in the summer months. Moisture deficiency contributes to the formation of wrinkles, loss of skin tone, the appearance of peeling and other negative aspects.
The best option is to purchase a special spray with light water and from time to time arrange a light shower for your skin. Also, maintaining the skin tone is facilitated by wiping with ice cubes, compresses from green tea and wiping the skin with alcohol-free wet wipes.
Another important rule: when you go home from the street in the summer, it is better not to wash your skin immediately with cold water, since a sharp change in temperature can cause skin tightness.
In summer, it is recommended to apply makeup only in the most extreme cases. If you properly care for your skin, you do not need to use foundation. In extreme cases, tonalka can be replaced with friable powder. All summer cosmetics should contain UV filters. A great alternative to mascara will be extended eyelashes, which do not require daily “washing” and rubbing the eyes.
