Keeping Your Skin Healthy and Glowing in the Miami Summer

Keeping Your Skin Healthy and Glowing in the Miami Summer

There’s nothing that gets you looking more youthful and glowing than great skin. Not only can good skin be one of your best assets, it’s also the largest organ of your body— which gives more than enough reason to start taking good care of it.

There isn’t always a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to proper skincare. Your skin’s needs will change according to your diet, health status, and even the weather. Taking care of your skin means understanding what it needs, and that’s what we aim to do today.

Previously, we talked about skin and beauty tips for fall and winter in Miami. Today, we’re going to talk about skincare tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing for a Miami summer, and hopefully for the rest of the year after. Check them out below!


Hydrate

Tight, flaky dry skin is never a good look on anyone, and in the warmer months this can be an even bigger concern. According to experts at UW Health, while drinking water is important, there are other ways you can add water to your skin.

Applying a hydrating toner and moisturizer is one way to get your skin looking fresh and dewy again. Pick products with hyaluronic acid, which is able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. Pick products with hyaluronic acid, such as this one from The Ordinary, which is able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. If you feel like just one swipe of moisturizer can’t cut it, don’t be afraid to apply another layer!


Boost Your Nutrients

Like any part of our bodies, skin needs the proper nutrition to function properly and look good. There are several nutrients that play important roles in maintaining your skin, including vitamins C, B complex, A, E, and much more. A well-balanced diet is often the best way to get these nutrients, but you can also turn to supplements or topical solutions.

Proteins like collagen are also essential for skin health because they help keep it looking smooth and supple. While there are several topical products that have collagen as an ingredient, its molecular weight makes it too heavy to penetrate the skin. The collagen supplements discussed on Brightcore can take around four weeks to start showing results. So be sure to check in with your doctor before taking supplements, to ensure that it fits your diet and lifestyle.


Exfoliate

Want your skin to look refreshed and youthful? You might want to try exfoliating. Celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau recommends exfoliation especially for people who deal with clogged pores and blemishes.

Exfoliation helps gently strip the dead skin off your body, encouraging new skin cells to develop. It also helps unclog pores and boosts circulation, so your skin looks fresher than ever. Finally, it can even help your skincare products penetrate more effectively. While exfoliation shouldn’t exactly be done every single day, adding it into your routine every once in a while is a great way to get your skin looking refreshed.


Put on Sunscreen

When the weather turns warmer, there’s nothing better than spending some time outside and soaking up the sun. Getting sun has a ton of benefits for your body— it adds a tan, healthy glow, and also gives you essential vitamin D nutrients that can boost your mood and your health.

However, too much sun can cause damage to your skin and increase the risk of skin cancer. The best way to enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing your skin’s health to do it is to use sunscreen. A post on Women’s Health endorses applying sunscreen 20 to 30 minutes before going outdoors, and reapplying regularly every 3 hours. Doing so will allow you to enjoy the warm weather while keeping your skin healthy and protected from harmful UV rays.
