It’s summer in the Treasure Valley and the sun is shining bright! That’s why the professional estheticians at unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following Boise hair salon tips to keep your skin glowing, soft, hydrated and well-protected this summer.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
Summer swimming, hot weather, and sun exposure can cause our skin to become dry and flaky. Exfoliating on a regular basis will help remove dry, dead skin cells while increasing blood flow, and help you achieve soft, glowing skin. However, it’s important to only exfoliate 2-3 times per week. Over-exfoliation can strip away your skin’s natural oils, which can leave it dry and irritated. Exfoliating will also help prevent unwanted acne and ingrown hairs.
Take Time To Moisturize
While heavy lotions can make your body feel sticky during the summer, your skin still needs hydration. Instead of using thick, rich moisturizers that you would normally use during the fall and winter months, try opting for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that contains soothing aloe vera during the hot weather. These products will not only help hydrate your skin but prevent clogged pores that can lead to unwanted acne when you sweat. It’s also a good idea to choose a moisturizer that contains SPF to further protect your skin from the summer sun.
Drink Plenty Of Water
Beautiful, hydrated skin starts from the inside out. When you don’t drink enough water, skin can appear dull, making imperfections like wrinkles stand out. Drinking water helps plump skin cells, and smooth fine lines. Even more, your body requires water to function properly. That’s why you should drink up to 8 glasses of water a day. This is especially important during the hot days of summer when you can easily become dehydrated.
The damage caused by the sun is one of the main causes of skin cancer. That’s why it’s important to use the highest rated sunscreen possible and limit the amount of time you are out in the sun. Even if you don’t immediately feel the effects of a sunburn, the damage is already done. While getting a tan is beautiful, harming your skin is not. Luckily, unDONE offers a much safer and healthier alternative when it comes to bronzing your skin for summer without the UV light or dangerous chemicals with our Boise spray tan.
Minimize Your Makeup
During the summer, we sweat, and sweat doesn’t combine well with our foundations, mascaras, powder, and eyeliners. Fortunately, summer is the perfect season for the less is more concept. Instead of heavy foundations, try using a tinted moisturizer that contains SPF. If you can’t live without your eyeliner or mascara, try a waterproof formula to avoid smudging throughout the day. And last but not least, don’t battle unwanted oil with excessive powder. Instead, try refreshing your face using tissue or blotting papers.
