Hydration Station: Summer Skin Care for Moisture-Deprived Skin

As the summer heat intensifies, it’s crucial to address the changing needs of your skin. This time of year, your skin can become moisture-deprived due to sun exposure, increased temperatures, and environmental factors. We’d like to help you care for your skin by providing effective strategies to keep your skin hydrated and nourished. Let’s unlock the secrets to moisturized, revitalized skin with expert summer skin care tips.

Stay Hydrated from Within

Hydration is key for maintaining supple skin. Especially during the summer, be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body and skin hydrated. Refreshing, water-rich foods like watermelon, cucumber, and citrus fruits can also contribute to your skin’s hydration levels.

Gentle Cleansing is Key

Swap out any heavy skin cleansers for gentle, hydrating formulas. Look for cleansers that are sulfate-free and contain moisturizing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin. These cleansers effectively remove impurities while helping to lock in moisture, helping you to maintain essential hydration for glowing skin.

Sunscreen, Always

Sun protection is non-negotiable, especially during the summer months. Shield your skin from harmful UV rays by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day before going outside. Remember to reapply every two hours, or more frequently if you’re sweating or swimming.

Choose Lightweight, Hydrating Moisturizers

A moisturizing skin care routine is critical this time of year. Choose lightweight, oil-free moisturizers that provide ample hydration without weighing down your skin. Look for products that contain humectants like hyaluronic acid, which attract and retain moisture to keep your skin plump and hydrated.

Remember After-Sun Care

Despite taking precautions, you may still develop a sunburn or skin irritation from the sun and scorching heat. If that happens, treat your skin to soothing after-sun care. Apply aloe vera gel or a cooling, hydrating mask to alleviate redness, restore moisture, and help your skin to heal.

Give Your Skin Special Treatment

Even if you do everything right, at-home skin care often falls short when it comes to giving your skin everything it needs. The hot summer sun can prematurely age your skin, placing you in urgent need of skin rejuvenation. Our team of experienced dermatologists offers a wide range of services that will go the extra mile for you, from hydrating facials and medical-grade skin care treatments to advanced laser therapies.
