Here are some tips to protect your skin and ease some of your fears.
1) First, last, and always: Sunscreen
Skincare experts recommend using sunscreen with at least SPF 30 for your body and SPF 50 for your face. Make sure to reapply every few hours, paying special attention to your nose, cheekbones, and any other areas with high levels of exposure. (A hat and sunglasses will help, too.)
2) Maintain your cleansing routine
Warmer weather likely means more time out in the elements – including dust and dirt. Make sure to follow your skincare routine.
3) Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Hydration isn’t only for the dry winter months. Your skin needs it in the summer, too, thanks to extreme heat, UV rays, and heavily air-conditioned environments.
4) Eat healthy and take your vitamins
Protect your skin from the inside out by eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, especially those with vitamin A, which encourages healthy skin growth.
5) Select the right product
In the market, there are lots of options. Look for products that are made with plant-based sources. I specifically use products that are vegan, plant-based, and gentle on the skin.
Note: Every vegan product can’t guarantee plant-based ingredients but, 100% plant-based ingredients with vegan certification is a good vegan product.
