It is summer and you are probably spending a lot of time outside. If you have met your partner on a cowboy dating site, you will surely go camping, organize a picnic or take part in a lot of outdoor activities. However, keep in mind that this time of year the sun’s rays are out in full force, so you need to take good care of your skin. Otherwise, it will get irritated, you will get sunburns or experience unpleasant rashes and breakouts. Lucky for you, there are actually some pretty simple things you can do to maintain a flawless look before you begin to hate summer.
Keep it simple
You really don’t need to follow that five-step skin care regimen every morning. Actually, you should just use two products and apply a sunscreen in the end. Not only will you save time and money, but you will also have a healthier skin.
Use a cleanser
You need to keep your skin clean but stay away from products with fragrances, dyes, or acne fighting ingredients. Instead, opt for something gentle that also nurtures your skin.
Moisturizer is your new best friend
After you have cleaned your skin, apply a moisturizer and gently massage it into the skin. Choose a lightweight moisturizer because skin usually feels super oily in the summer. Make sure you give it time to absorb into your skin before you apply a sunscreen.
Don’t forget to apply a sunscreen
Buy a sunscreen that says ‘Broad Spectrum’, your skin will be protected from both UVA and UVB rays that way. It is recommendable that you buy three separate sunscreens, one for your body, one for your face and one water-resistant for when you go swimming. If you want to avoid clogged pores and breakouts, choose the one that is hypoallergenic. Whatever sunscreen you choose, keep in mind that you should apply it on time, since it needs 20 minutes to sink into your skin and start protecting it. These days, a lot of brands offer travel sized bottles, so you can just put one in your purse and reapply it whenever needed. Now go out there and enjoy a burn-free and irritation-free summer!
