Get Your Skin Summer-Ready: Expert Tips from Lisa Simone

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to adjust your skincare routine to protect and nourish your skin. Here are three key steps to get your skin summer-ready:

1. Apply and Reapply Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen is non-negotiable, especially during the summer. Here’s why:

• Protection Against UV Rays: Sunscreen with at least SPF 30 protects your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, which can cause sunburn, premature aging, and increase the risk of skin cancer.
• Daily Necessity: It’s crucial to wear sunscreen daily, regardless of whether it’s sunny or cloudy, and even when you’re indoors. UV rays can penetrate through windows and still affect your skin.
• Reapplication is Key: To maintain protection, reapply sunscreen every two hours and immediately after swimming or sweating. This ensures continuous coverage as the sunscreen can wear off due to water, sweat, and oil production.

Scientific studies highlight the importance of broad-spectrum sunscreens in preventing photodamage. Make sunscreen an integral part of your skincare regimen to keep your skin safe and healthy all summer long.

2. Apply Your Antioxidants

Antioxidants are vital for skin health, especially during the summer months:

• Combat Free Radicals: Antioxidants, such as Vitamins A and E, neutralize free radicals generated by UV exposure and environmental pollutants. Free radicals can damage skin cells, leading to premature aging and other skin issues.
• Enhance Sun Protection: Applying antioxidants underneath your sunscreen can enhance its effectiveness. They provide an extra layer of protection by reducing oxidative stress on your skin.
• Types and Application: Incorporate serums or moisturizers rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Green Tea Extract into your morning routine. Apply these products before your sunscreen for optimal protection.

3. Nourish and Repair Your Skin

The summer elements can be harsh on your skin, making nourishment and repair essential:

• Hydrate and Moisturize: Increased sun exposure and outdoor activities can dehydrate your skin. Use hydrating masks and moisturizers to maintain skin moisture levels.
• Repair with Peptides: Peptides are powerful ingredients that help repair and strengthen the skin barrier. Incorporate overnight hydrating masks and peptide-rich treatments to support skin recovery.
• Combat Environmental Stress: Summer activities and socializing can put additional stress on your skin. Regularly using products with soothing and repairing ingredients can help mitigate this stress and keep your skin looking fresh and radiant.
