I look forward to long days soaking in the sun all year, but I’m team sunburn. Whether or not you burn as quickly as I do, it’s important to make sure you’re staying safe and keeping your skin looking its very best. We’ve got ya covered with three top summer skincare tips from Dr. Corey Hartman, MD at Skin Wellness Dermatology. Check ’em out, then make plans for your best summer ever.
Here are 3 top summer skincare tips from Dr. Hartman 👇
1. Start with sunscreen
If you aren’t wearing SPF every day, now’s the time to start. Even when it’s not a super sunny day, UV rays can still penetrate and damage the skin.
You can either use a physical sunscreen (which includes ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to form a barrier on your skin) or a chemical sunscreen (which absorbs into the skin instead of sitting on top of it). Whatever you choose, make sure you’re adding SPF every day.
2. Moisturize every day
Here’s another tip you might not have known, especially if your skin is on the oilier side. Moisturizing every day will help keep your skin balanced and fresh. If you’re feeling too oily, try out a moisturizer with glycerin that will feel lighter on your skin.
3. Increase your exfoliation
Anyone else see more breakouts during the summer? You can blame the different environmental forces your skin’s encountering. To help counteract the damage, add more exfoliation to your skincare routine.
