School is back in full swing and with it, school sports have begun. In many parts of the country this would mean cool autumn days and jackets. However, in Florida the sun is still shining bright and the days are hot. That means you still need to maintain your summertime skin care regimen… especially if you’re going to be spending more time outside watching football games!
Protect your skin.
If it isn’t already, sunscreen should be a critical component of your daily routine. We recommend the Colorescience Sunforgettable Sunscreen since it comes with a powder brush that makes it easy to apply and reapply when you’re on the go. Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before you head outside and remember to reapply periodically, according to the instructions on the label.
Because it’s still so hot outside you’ll need to consume lots of water. Through normal activities, the average person loses about 10 to 15 cup of fluid each day and that number increases if you’re being active (or sitting outside in the heat). Make it a focus on your day to stay hydrated… your skin will thank you!
Cleanse and exfoliate.
Sweat can clog pores, and when you’re spending a lot of time outdoors you’re likely sweating a lot. To minimize the risk of outbreaks and other effects that clogged pores have on your complexion, your skin care routine should include both cleansing and gentle exfoliation.
It may seem like the moist Florida air should provide plenty of moisture for your skin, but the truth is that dry skin is very common during the hotter months of the year. If you’re unsure which moisturizer is best for your skin, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can help you pick out the best product for your skin type.
Keeping these tips in mind this fall will go a long way towards maintaining the beautiful skin that you already have. If you have any questions about which are the best products for you, we are happy to help. Contact us today!
