Summer is here and it's time to start preparing our skin for the warm, hot, sunny days ahead.
When it comes to getting your skin ready for summer, the sooner you start, the better. Diambar Beauty is here with some tried and true tips and tricks to help you get your skin glowing and feeling its best.
First things first, let's talk hydration.
We all know that staying well-hydrated is critical to looking and feeling our best, but during the summer, achieving this can be extra challenging. However, did you know that you should start taking action in the winter to achieve well-moisturized, healthy skin in the summer? It's true!
During the colder months of winter, you can start giving your skin the extra hydration it needs with an ultra-nourishing kinkeliba butter blend or lotion. Kinkeliba has long been used to nourish and moisturize African skin for centuries, so it's perfect for getting that additional boost of moisture in the winter months and getting your skin prepped and ready for when the temperature starts to rise.
Lastly, keep up with your water routine. The most hydrated and healthy skin starts from within. Make sure you drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily to keep your skin looking and feeling as healthy and hydrated as possible.
Step up your skincare routine.
As you transition into warmer weather, it's also an excellent opportunity to switch up your skincare routine and ensure that your products are suitable for the season. For many, the winter and spring months are weighed down with heavier makeup and moisturizers designed to protect and conceal the skin, whereas summer skin is known for being more natural.
Examine your skincare routine to achieve the coveted "your skin but better" look this summer. It would be best to switch up your routine by adding cleansers and serums with lighter formulas that won't clog your pores leading up to those hot summer days.
Next, let's discuss sunscreen.
Yes, you should absolutely be wearing sunscreen in the winter and spring months. Having beautiful skin in the summer starts with protecting it from harmful UV rays in the winter, spring, and fall seasons. It's important to remember that sunscreen must be applied daily, even when the sun isn't out. UV rays can still penetrate through clouds and windows. Make sure to look for broad-spectrum sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30 or higher.
So, why is sunscreen important during the winter and spring months? Not only will it protect your skin and help prevent wrinkles, dark spots, and other signs of aging, but it will also help prepare your skin for the sunnier days of summer, giving it a base layer of protection that will train your skin to stay healthy, resilient, and vibrant in the hotter months.
Finally, understand that anti-aging products are for ALL ages.
Summertime might be filled with warm memories, sunny days, and hot nights - but it can prematurely age your skin without the proper preventative measures. The truth is, it's never too early to start taking anti-aging products seriously.
Being proactive about your skincare routine and investing in anti-aging products will help slow the natural aging process, allowing you to keep your youthful glow for longer. It's essential to find a product suitable for your skin type that contains antioxidants like Kinkeliba and is free of harsh chemicals or fragrances.
