It’s time to lighten up. Check out these tips for keeping your skin looking and feeling fresh this summer, from Seoul Mamas!
Hydrate from the inside out
Keep yourself and your skin hydrated by sipping constantly throughout the day. If you need a little motivation, add fruit or herbs to a tall glass of ice water or squeeze a little lemon in your favorite flavored water for a hydrating mocktail. We’re adding this recipe to our must-make list this summer! Yum!
Staying hydrated keeps you feeling your best while you’re spending time in the sun. It’ll show up on your skin, too! Dehydrated skin can look dull and lead to premature wrinkles.
Speaking of premature wrinkles, sun damage can really do a number on your skin. Not only can sun damage cause wrinkles, it can put you at risk for skin cancer.
Look for a high SPF and something with UVA and UVB protection. Apply sunscreen before heading out into the sun so it has time to soak in. Reapply every two hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating. Toss a hat and shades in your bag to give your face some extra protection.
While we’re here, we’d like to remind to keep an eye on any moles or sunspots and visit the dermatologist regularly. 🙂
Spritzing on toner is a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh. Toners are lightweight and help keep the moisture in – a must for healthy-looking skin! We think an aloe or rosewater toner would be great to keep in your pool bag or next to your bed.
A sheet mask is a great addition your skin care routine any time of year, but it’s the perfect way to replenish your skin in the summer. A sheet mask force feeds your skin beneficial ingredients. The mask keeps the ingredients from evaporating too quickly.
Our masks are packed with ingredients that help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots. A sheet mask and a glass of sparkling water would be a great way to end a pool or beach day. (Show us your #sheetmasksetup by tagging us @SeoulMamas.)
