It’s easy to forget about appropriate skin care in the summer, we get it! Who doesn’t love feeling the sunshine on our face? On the other hand, we all know what happens with too much skin exposure… age spots, premature wrinkles and the risk of sun cancer. To keep it healthy, your skin needs some backup during the warmer months! Read further for a full rundown on our four tips to keep skin smooth all summer long.

SPF
When it comes to summertime, it’s important that you always, always, always (yes that’s three always!) prepare skin for sun exposure. Sun protection is crucial to prevent peeling, age spots, dull skin, premature aging, and so on. And not everyone knows this, but UV rays can be the strongest during cloudy days…never assume you won’t burn!

Exfoliate once a week
The climate is always something we should take into consideration during summer… the heat can wipe the moisture out of skin, leaving it to look dull and dry. Exfoliation rids the skin of flakiness and exposes the glowing skin underneath. And for an added benefit, exfoliation also allows the skin cells to regenerate quicker! Cleansing with cleansing oils gently exfoliates the face, while the Tu’el Exfoliation Kit is ideal for the body.

Drink plenty of water
When it comes to wondering how to take care of skin in summer, drinking plenty of water is a priority. In our opinion, the importance of hydration is nearly always overlooked! In addition to hydrating for the hotter weather, water flushes out toxins that can dull the skin. You can amp up your water intake from fruits and veggies too!

Moisturize
Last but not least, an effective moisturizer is the surefire way to keep skin smooth all summer long. It’s easy to forget to moisturize during summer because the skin is moist from sweating or humidity, but your skin still needs soothing. However, don’t let the weather affect your skin care routine! Keep up with cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
