Summer Skincare Tips for a Stress-Free Year

Students approaching graduation day get the double whammy when it comes to taking care of their skin. They are experiencing stress, and the temperatures are warming, which means they are more likely to be outdoors, and need to add protection from the sun. Here are 7 tips to prepare your skin your big day. 

  1. Stay Hydrated

Hydration is crucial for healthy skin, especially as the weather gets warmer. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Proper hydration helps maintain skin elasticity, improve complexion and flush out toxins from the body, promoting overall skin health.  

You can also use hydrating skincare products, such as moisturizers and serums, to maintain skin moisture levels. 

  1. Protect Your Skin from Sun, Environmental Stressors

Shield your skin from environmental stressors such as UV radiation, pollution and harsh weather conditions. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you're spending time outdoor 

Wear protective clothing and accessories and avoid prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures and environmental pollutants. 

  1. Eat a Balanced Diet; Avoid Caffeine & Alcohol 

Maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains to support skin health and combat the effects of stress. Foods high in vitamins C and E, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants help promote skin health and combat free radical damage. 

Reduce your intake of caffeinated beverages and alcohol, as they can dehydrate the skin and exacerbate stress and anxiety. Instead, choose herbal teas, infused water or non-alcoholic beverages as healthier alternatives. 

  1. Rest Up

Prioritize getting enough sleep each night, as insufficient sleep can negatively impact skin health and exacerbate stress-related skin problems. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night to allow your skin time to repair and regenerate. 

  1. Take Breaks and Practice Stress Management

Incorporate self-care activities into your daily routine to help alleviate stress and promote relaxation. Set aside time for activities you enjoy, such as reading, spending time outdoors, taking a bath or practicing hobbies that help you unwind and recharge. 

Stress can intensify skin issues such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. Include stress management techniques in your daily routine, like meditation, deep breathing exercises, yoga or mindfulness practices to help reduce stress levels and promote overall well-being. 

  1. Manage Allergies and Sensitivities

Spring allergies can aggravate skin sensitivities and inflammation. Manage allergy symptoms with appropriate medications and avoid skincare products containing allergens or irritants that can worsen skin reactions. 

  1. Adjust Your Skincare Routine, But Keep a Routine

Springtime may require adjustments to your skincare routine to address changing skin needs. Consider using lighter skincare products, such as water-based moisturizers and gel-based cleansers, to prevent clogged pores and excess oil production in warmer weather. 

Establishing a regular skincare routine can provide a sense of structure and stability during stressful times. Clean your skin twice a day, remove makeup before bedtime and avoid prolonged exposure to hot water, which can strip your skin of its natural oils and lead to dryness. 

By following these spring skincare tips, you can help keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing throughout the season. Adjust your skincare routine as needed to address seasonal changes and protect your skin from environmental stressors.  

HyaGlo Can Help 

As you adjust or establish a spring, stress-free skincare routine, be sure to use products that are all-natural and water-based to give your skin that extra hydration it deserves. Our HyaGlo® products are powered by our proprietary hyaluronic acid. One of the primary functions of hyaluronan is maintaining tissue hydration. Interestingly, hyaluronan is so hydrophilic that it can absorb, retain and deliver over 1,000 times its weight in water (Wand, 2007).  The ubiquitous nature of the hyaluronan molecule ensures hydrophilic delivery takes place throughout all skin tissue. 

Our unique all-natural topical hyaluronic acid (HA) formula, Glysyn Hyaluronan, has been trademarked since 2011 as a molecularly optimized formula for maximum hydration and moisture absorption. Check out these HyaGlo products to get you through your spring stressors.
