Safeguard Your Skin
The harshness of summer can take its toll on our skin’s condition. Use these simple tips to safeguard your skin on the inside and outside of your body.
Drink water steadily throughout the day. In hot weather, you’ll need more water as your body will use additional water to regulate your body temperature.
If you find it difficult to drink water throughout the day, increase your ‘high water’ food intake such as salads, fruits and vegetables.
Beverages such as alcohol, coffee and traditional tea have a dehydrating effect on the body. Although they are high in water content, the other ingredients within these beverages require the use of water to metabolize.
Get into the habit of applying a high SPF sunscreen regularly.
Between 11am and 3pm, take extra care and stay inside or within the shade to avoid the strongest sun rays of the day.
Spritz your face regularly with cool water.
Choose loose cotton, silk or linen clothing which allow perspiration to evaporate naturally.
Wear a floppy hat to keep the heat off your head.
