- A well-rounded skin care regimen. Just as a diet made up of only one food wouldn't be enough to fuel your body, a one-dimensional approach to skin care won't be sufficient to keep your skin looking its best. A regimen that protects during the day, works to reverse signs of aging, and rejuvenates through the night will address all of your skin's needs.
- Sun protection. Avoiding the sun is the best way to prevent damage from its UVA and UVB rays, but as summer arrives and spending time outdoors takes over, it's often unavoidable. Using a skin cream with a minimum SPF of 15 will help protect your skin, but you should also use clothing, like hats, lightweight long sleeved shirts and long pants, to keep the sun off your skin.
- A skin-friendly diet. A healthy diet will be reflected in a healthy complexion. Focus on fresh foods that are abundantly available throughout the summer as part of a delicious solution for healthy skin. Avoid fried and highly processed foods whenever possible to look and feel even better.
- Staying hydrated. One of the best ways to keep your skin glowing is to keep it supplied with water. But you'll need to do more than keep a bottle of water handy. Use a moisturizer that keeps your skin continuously hydrated - not only will it help your skin look better in the moment, but it also helps to protect over the long term.
