Healthy Summer Skin by Dhara Patel (esthetician & stylist at Von Anthony Salon)
Human body made up of 70% of liquid and summer heat dries up skin cells faster, so hydration is a key ingredient for a healthy skin. Drink up to 6-8 glasses water a day. Consuming foods that contain mostly water can be just as hydrating for your body as drinking H2O. Eat water-rich fruits and vegetables such as berries, watermelon, cucumbers, celery, lettuce, bell peppers - throughout the day.
2. SPF (Sun Protection Factor)
SPF measures sunscreen protection from UVB rays, the kind that cause sunburn and contribute to skin cancer. So, always protect your skin with proper SPF before sun exposur.
* SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays
* SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays
So, dermatologists recommend using a SPF 15 or SPF 30 sunscreen
3. EAT your SPF ( Really!)
There's some evidence that oral intake of vitamins C and E together can limit the potential for sunburn. A salad with Vitamin C rich citrus, berries, tomato and Vitamin E rich nuts is an ideal SPF meal.
4. Find a lighter Formula
A lot of sunscreen is heavy and oily, and adding these can contribute to break outs and shine during summer months. So, find something light, oil-free and streak free.
I highly recommend "Circ-Cell Daily Protection SPF 43"
