Your 5 Ultimate Summer Body Care Tips
Take a little time for yourself and buff, hydrate and supplement your way to smoother skin, softer hair and stronger nails.
With the sun shining and temperatures rising, you’re probably spending more time socializing, frolicking outdoors and showing off your bod on the beach. And with these easy tips, you’ll look good and feel ready to take on every adventure that summer throws your way.
Slather on SPF
Your number one mission this summer? Protect your skin from UV radiation. Apply a mineral sunscreen, which uses zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide to deflect the sun’s rays, then add a hat and shades.
Exfoliate from head to toe
Smooth legs go with shorts and summery dresses like ice cubes in lemonade, so make an exfoliating body scrub a shower staple and rub it on damp skin in circular motions, giving extra attention to rough areas.
Give your skin a dose of hydration
Sweat, saltwater and time in the sun may leave your face feeling parched. If your skin is crying out for TLC, look for a soothing or hydrating cream or gel mask. For excess oil or blackheads, alternate with a clay mask to target impurities.
Nurture your mane
Just like your face, your hair needs a little extra love during the summer months. Treat it (and your senses) to a mask, hair oil or leave-in conditioner to perk up dried out, listless strands.
Supplement your diet with beauty vitamins
If your diet is deficient in certain vitamins and minerals, it could affect your skin, hair and nails. Consider a supplement with ingredients like biotin, B vitamins, hyaluronic acid or vitamins A, C and E and improve your assets from the inside out.
