Spring is still six weeks away, but it’s never too soon to start preparing for summer. As the old adage goes, an ounce of prevention is worth pound of cure. A year-round skincare routine will make your summer skincare protocol super easy, giving you more time to do the fun-in-the sun things you enjoy!
So, how do you step up your skin care for summer weather? Read the following for tips and tricks that will ensure a safe and effective skincare routine…
Fun in the Sun
You’ll want to protect your skin from harmful UV rays no matter the season. Sometimes the most damage can be done when we least expect it. Just because the sun isn’t bright or the temperature isn’t above 70 degrees, doesn’t mean the sun isn’t radiating harmful UV rays and reflecting them off the clouds.
The sun emits harmful UV rays year-round. Even on cloudy days, up to 80% of the sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate the clouds. It is critical to wear sunscreen that meets the following criteria:
- Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays)
- Water resistant
- SPF 30 or higher
Not only will sunscreen protect you from sun rays that cause skin cancer, but it will also protect your skin from premature aging. Premature aging signs include unwanted wrinkles and sunspots where excessive sun causes damage to the skin.
Repair Sun Damaged Skin
If you do happen to get sunburned, you can offer some relief to your skin with the HyaGlo® Clarifying Serum. This all-natural Clarifying Serum is designed at the molecular level to naturally address skin irritations. It is a revolutionary formula that combines the benefits of beta glucans from schizophyllan to relieve and restore blemished skin as well as improve skin texture and appearance.
It’s primary vegan-friendly hyaluronic acid base, Glysyn® Hyaluronan, is a trademarked orgnic hyaluronic acid that draws in moisture naturally for healthy skin hydration. It rejuvenates and soothes with hydrated, bright, and glowing results.
HyaGlo Clarifying Serum is the ideal product to keep on hand as you are outdoors more in the spring and summer. Not only can it provide relief from sunburn irritations, but it also helps with other skin irritations. Use the Clarifying Serum for relief from bug bites, poison ivy and other cuts and scrapes that active lifestyles might cause from gardening or sports. It provides three key benefits:
- Relieves occasional irritations
- Restores blemished skin
- Improves skin condition and appearance
Be Proactive in your Skin Care
Not only do you want to protect yourself from the sun, but there are other steps you can take to get your skin ready for the summer. Here are three more simple steps to prepare for summer skin.
Be sure to hydrate yourself from the inside out. Did you know that the average person requires at least 64 ounces of water daily? Although a person’s body weight and size determine how much water they truly need. Hydration plays a vital role in healthy skin. If you are not keen on plain water, try adding a natural flavoring to it like a lemon, lime or cucumber.
Remember, some foods are also high in water content like celery, cucumbers and oranges. Carry a water bottle with you throughout the day to stay hydrated and avoid excessive amounts of caffeine and alcohol (which can be dehydrating).
While it is important to hydrate from the inside out, it is also important to keep your skin moisturized. We recommend the HyaGlo® Moisturizer. This highly concentrated HA moisturizer is designed to enhance hydration and soothe skin with all-natural, effective ingredients.
Enriched with Glysyn Hyaluronan, our vegan-friendly HA formula draws in moisture for healthy skin hydration, but also includes vitamins A, C, E & B complex peptides for long-lasting smooth and supple skin. It is designed to soothe skin naturally and is uniquely and naturally water-based to eliminate the need for chemical manipulation.
HyaGlo Moisturizer contains two other key ingredients besides water - marshmallow root and peptide complex. Marshmallow root is derived from the root of the Altaea plant. It is known to relieve occasional skin irritation, help soften skin, and have aseptic qualities. It also provides relief from occasional itching, redness and chafing. Marshmallow root is tolerable by those with hypersensitive skin.
Peptide complex helps penetrate the outer layer of skin more deeply and signal to the skin to increase production of collagen and elastin. Regular use leads to firmer, more youthful-looking skin, and it works well in tandem with hyaluronic acid. This peptide complex reduces the appearance of dark undereye circles and improves the skin’s natural defense barrier for protection from rays, pollution and other toxins.
HyaGlo Moisturizer is suited for all skin types. For the best results, use morning and night after cleansing your skin with your favorite face wash.
- Wash your face
It is always important to wash your face twice daily – morning and night – to keep your skin healthy and give you that healthy, glowing skin. However, as the temperature rises and you spend more time sweating, it is even more important!
Use a gentle cleanser that will help open pores and get dirt and grime off of your face. Be sure to wash with warm water and get all of the cleanser rinsed off to avoid further irritation. Then, follow your face wash with the HyaGlo® Hydrating Serum to help lock moisture back into your skin and create a plump, healthy skin barrier. This concentrated all-natural, scientific serum replenishes skin and results in plump, glowing and noticeably smoother skin.
Hydrating Serum is true to its name. It works naturally to relieve dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin, all which we want to be rid of in the summer. As you transition from spring, this serum alleviates fine lines and wrinkles, leaves skin dramatically refined, more youthful appearing and silky smooth.
Repeated applications of HyaGlo Hydrating Serum results in a long-term skincare solution that addresses the source of concern without using abrasive substances or chemicals found in other cosmetics. It is designed for all skin types and is designed to be applied twice daily after washing your face.
