Summer brings with it the joys of warm weather and sunshine, but it can also be harsh on your skin. Here are six of the BEST skin care tips for healthy skin during the summer months and all year long.
Skin Care Tips
1. Protect your skin from the sun:
Use sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 and reapply every two hours if you are spending time outdoors. Wear protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses, and seek shade during peak hours of the day.
Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. The heat can cause dehydration, leading to dry and flaky skin.
Exfoliate your skin every 6 weeks to remove dead skin cells and impurities that can clog pores and cause breakouts.
Use a lightweight moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated without making it feel heavy. Look for moisturizers that contain shea butter or jojoba to attract and retain moisture.
Use a gentle cleanser daily to remove dirt, oil, and sweat from your skin. Avoid using harsh soaps, which can strip your skin of its natural oils.
6. Add in a CLM Massage & Bodywork Session:

By following these simple steps, you can keep your skin healthy and glowing all year long.
