School is out and it is time to enjoy outdoors with kids. But, sun is the number one enemy of your beautiful skin. Well, staying indoors is not an option. So how are you going to protect your skin from the damages of warm weather without staying indoors?All you need is some expert advice and some discipline to get the perfect summer glow.Alexander Graham Bell said, “The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to focus.” But, the truth is otherwise. Whether you bring them into focus or not, sun rays are sure to burn your beautiful skin. Dr. David Colbert, MD, Founder of NY Dermatology says warm weather causes more damage to the skin than winter weather. Here is a lowdown on skincare products that are your best bet during the rising temperatures. Multi-tasking BB Cream Every woman whether she is a homemaker or a working woman, is adept at multi-tasking. From cooking meals to mowing the lawn, women run most of the errands with perfection. Therefore, they need skincare products that are multi-purpose and convenient. BB creams are the number one choice of busy women. Dr. Wu offers wide variety of BB creams that can be used in lieu of sunscreen, moisturizer and primer. Now, you do not want to overload your skin with so many different products. However, it is important that the SPF of BB creams should be above 25 to get the adequate protection. Keep applying these products after every 2-3 hours in order to get the maximum protection. Salicylic Acid Cleanser Well, you know a great deal about sun protection. But, you don’t want to skip the basic routine of cleansing. Remove make-up as well as sunscreen using effective cleanser; else your skin troubles will multiply. If your cleanser is not doing the job right, switch to salicylic acid cleaner. According to Dr. David Colbert, using salicylic acid to gently exfoliate your skin not only helps correct skin conditions but also prevent it from further damage, because salicylic acid helps in removing the dead skin cells and promotes the cell renewal. As a result, you get clean face and clear complexion. Jan Marini cleansers contain salicylic acid and are great for oily skin. Light-Weight Lotion Smart women know what they need to look beautiful and never skip even a single step in their daily skincare routine regardless of the weather. They just use the right products suiting the weather. If your regular moisturizer is making you greasy in summers, try the oil-free lotions like Cellex-C Hydra 5 B-Complex that provide enough moisture to your skin without making you feel greasy. According to Dermatologist Amy Wechsler at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, moisture is essential for skin’s health and in the absence of moisture, your skin produce excess sebum and cause breakouts.
