Summer Skin Rehab

Summer Skin Rehab By Barbies Beauty Bits

With all the humidity, UV exposure, saltwater, and chlorine, the Summer months can wreak havoc on our skin, which is why I recommend some Summer skin rehab.  Even for those diehards who have applied safe sunscreen measures religiously and keep ourselves properly hydrated. Some environmental factors can still impact the skin, causing free radical damage to the skin cells.

And with only one month left in the Summer, it is time for us to start thinking about getting our skin ready for cooler weather, and a Summer skin rehab, refresher is just what you need.

Here are a few of our suggestions to help rejuvenate and refresh your Summer damaged skin:

Summer Skin Rehab At Home
To refresh your dry Summer skin, consider starting at home. With a little TLC, you can improve the look and feel of your Summer skin, even with just one pampering session.

Exfoliating is an excellent place to start; if you want healthy, glowing skin, you should be exfoliating! However, avoid overdoing it, as it can weaken the protective skin barrier.  Always follow up with an intense hydrating moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid to provide long-lasting moisture to soothe and restore your complexion. Hyaluronic acid attracts up to 1000 times its weight in moisture; for that reason, it is ultra-moisturizing and helps keep your Summer skin hydrated, plump, and radiant. It even visibly softens fine lines and wrinkles.

Professional Skincare Treatments For Damaged Summer Skin by barbies beauty bits

Get A Professional Skincare Treatment
Sun damage, chemicals, abrasion – it all adds up. Luckily, there are new technologies available to help your summer skin.

To step up your exfoliating game, we highly suggest some professional skincare rehab treatments. To ensure you are getting the right treatment and results, we recommend visiting a trained cosmetic dermatologist. 

One professional exfoliating treatment I love is a micro peel. Because this is a potent peel, it offers a more significant exfoliating boost than an at-home treatment, and no worries there is no downtime. This peel is fantastic at improving your skin's texture, reducing discoloration from the sun, minimizing your pores, while overall brightening your complexion. Also, another treatment to consider for damaged Summer skin is some laser skin rejuvenation.

Make Some Lifestyle Changes
Life is all about balance. And the health of our skin is no different. With everything going on in the world currently, stress is going to be at an all-time high, resulting in a lack of sleep, unhealthy eating, and excessive alcohol consumption, all of which can harm our skin.

For our skin to be healthy, there is more to it than just skincare products and treatments. For example, eating properly, even getting our beauty sleep. Yes, it is real. Getting at least eight hours of rest is crucial for skin renewal because as we sleep, our skin rests, recovers, and renews. Also, you want to make sure you are drinking plenty of water. If your body is not hydrated, your skin starts to look dry and flaky. For a dewy, hydrated complexion you want to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, even consider drinking infused water for an extra boost.

Tips to prevent your face from breaking out from wearing a face mask by barbies beauty bits

Give Your Skin A Breather
Our skin, just like everything else in our life, may need a break! Especially now that we are all required to wear facial masks, people experience "maskne."

To help reduce skin irritations and breakouts caused by wearing a facemask, consider implementing some ideas like:
  • Limit your makeup use when wearing a mask. If you are wearing makeup, the mask is like a filthy makeup brush, pressing dirt, sweat, and other microbes into the skin.
  • Do not over wash. While it may be tempting to wash your face before and after you wear a mask, you do not want to overdo it. Dry skin can cause irritation and breakouts.
  • Stay away from harsh skincare ingredients. I will be the last person to promote staying away from anti-aging products. However, if you wear a face mask frequently, you want to lighten up on ingredients like retinol.
So, there you have it beauties our top remedies for some Summer skin rehab, until next time!
