Summer Skin Care Tips

Just like when the seasons change, and we switch out our winter to summer wardrobe we need to think about our skin care regimen.

A good sunscreen like Dr. Banki’s Antioxidant Enriched Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 50 is important in every season, however in the summer we need to protect our faces and bodies more frequently throughout the day.  When shopping for a sunscreen look for a minimum SPF 30.  A broad-spectrum sunscreen offers protections from UVA, UVB.
Swapping out heavy moisturizers that are used in the winter with a lighter serum will soak into your skin faster and feels much lighter on the skin.  Using Vitamin C is also great to use during the summer.  It helps stimulate the collagen and elastin production, minimizes the appearance of pigmentation spots and protects the skin from damaging free radicals.

Following a daily skin care routine is crucial to prevent the signs of aging and restoring a natural glow.  Using a gentle cleanser like Dr. Banki’s Deep Antioxidant Cleanser with warm water followed by an exfoliant of Dr. Banki’s Glycolic Acid Resurfacing Pads will remove dead skin cells, sweat, dirt will decrease clog pores and will promote your skin care products to penetrate the skin more effectively.

Do not forget to hydrate during the summer is crucial to keep the skin moist.  Also use a lip sunscreen this is especially important to stop blistering.  When using a lip gloss be sure to use one with SPF 30 or higher to protect your lips.

Also summer berries including blueberries and raspberries are beneficial on your skin.  They are packed with natural Vitamin C and numerous antioxidants to brighten and fight against signs of aging and environmental damage to your skin.
