Summer Skincare Tips for Moms

Summer Skincare Tips for Moms

Overexposure to the sun can cause serious damage and premature aging. Let’s do what we can to protect ourselves this summer. Here are a few quick summer skincare tips for moms.

Protect your Puckers

Don’t forget your lips when you are putting on the sunscreen! Sun can dry out lips so be sure to put on SPF 15 or better yet, SPF 30 and reapply throughout the day.

Cool it off

Take a cold shower after a day in the sun instead of hot. Hot water can further dry your skin and it will close your pores after sweating preventing acne.

Indulge in Melons

Did you know cantaloupe is rich in antioxidants which helps keep your skin hydrated and results in radiant skin? Additionally, Lycopene-rich fruit like watermelon can also help boost your natural SPF level. Who knew!?

Powder SPF

There are some great products out there that make sun protection easier. Try SPF protected face powders instead of lotions. We always suggest putting on sunscreen under your makeup daily. Powders like 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Foundation Powder with SPF are an easy way to touch up your makeup and sunscreen in one go.

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Clear away dead, dry skin with regular all-over exfoliation and make room for young hydrated skin cells. Try this DIY Bulletproof Body Scrub in the shower after a day in the sun. It’s complete with rejuvenating coffee beans and moisturizing coconut oil.

Of course, we can not stress enough how important it is to wear sunscreen whenever you go in the sun. Even a slight overcast can shine harmful UV rays in your direction. Protect your skin this summer using our summer skincare tips for moms.
