Keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long

Summer is here.
It's time to show off your beautiful skin by wearing sun dresses, skirts, etc. Summer means sun, shorts, sandals, bathing suits and bronzed skin.
But remember to keep your skin safe. It's really important to protect your skin from the sun.  
Sun damage can lead to premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, marks, dry skin, and even skin cancer over time.  
Here are some easy ways to keep your skin healthy and radiant all summer long!

 
1.) Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is important for healthy hair and skin. Always make sure to drink enough water, especially in hot places.  


2.) Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables salads to ensure that you're getting all the antioxidants and nutrients your skin needs.  
There are some fruits which make the digestion very fast like grapefruit and water melon. So you can speed up your metabolism. The best time to eat a fruit (any fruit) is either first thing in the morning on an empty stomach or as a mid-morning snack, between breakfast and lunch. It is advisable to eat fruits at least 30 minutes before any heavy meal.   


3.) Protect your hair from the sun.
Heat and UV rays from the sun can leave your hair dull and brittle. You need to take precautions to protect it. Look for styling products with a built-in sun protection factor (SPF).



4.) Always use sunscreen to prevent age spots and wrinkles. Put at least SPF 30 on your hands and body before you go out in the sun, especially when driving your car. Don’t forget to reapply when needed.  


5.) Stay out of the sun between the hours of 11am and 3pm. The hottest part of the day during the summer is the most damaging time. Do not expose yourself to direct sunlight during the hottest period of the day, remember that UV rays are strong and damage not only hair but also skin.  
If you use fashion accessories such as hats, scarves, they will keep you cool from the sun, you will look good and protect your hair at the same time. 


6.) Wear sunglasses. Overexposure to the sun damages your skin and speeds up aging like nothing else. Wearing sunglasses prevents you from squinting, which we all know can contribute to wrinkles around the eyes. 


7.) Wash your hair after using a swimming pool, the chemicals in the pool may harm your hair.


8.) In a hot climate, it is best to go out with a minimal makeup. Wearing minimal makeup is great for summertime because it means that you don't have to worry about your makeup melting off your skin. When the weather gets hot, makeup can begin to run, smudge and practically melt off your face. While on vacation, leave your makeup off as often as possible. This is a great opportunity to let your skin breathe.


9.) Avoid spraying perfume on your skin in the sun. The psoralens in perfume can permanently stain your skin when they react with the sun. Also the alcohol contains in the perfume attracts the sun. During the summertime, avoid spraying your perfume on your neck. 


10)Get wavy/curly hair by washing your hair at night then putting it up into a tight bun. When you wake up in the morning, if it is not dry, blow dry your hair (still up in a bun). Then take out the bun and you should have wavy hair.  


Extra tip:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
It's summer time and we all know that this is the time to kick off your shoes and show off those sandals-ready feet and perfectly painted toe nails. 
Are you ready?
No?
Smooth cracked heels using papaya.
Papaya contains enzymes that digest proteins, making it helpful in treating cracked heels, soles and removing rough skin from feet.
Mash up chunks of papaya into a mask and spread it onto cracked heels for 15 minutes.
Then rinse with lukewarm water. Apply twice a week.  



Have a nice summer everyone!
