Top Skincare Tips: Essentials As We Head Into Summer

As summer approaches, now is a crucial time to make sure your skin is equipped for the changing weather conditions. Let us take a closer look at the importance of hydration, sun protection, and other skin care products for summer in New York City.

Daytime Protection 

Summer presents a variety of skin challenges, such as increased UVA and UVB rays, both of which present an increased risk for lasting skin damage. UVA has a longer wavelength, leading to faster aging of your skin, while the shorter wavelength of UVB causes you to burn. Both rays can cause hyperpigmentation, giving your skin a patchy appearance. 

Sun protection is, therefore, a non-negotiable item in your daily skin care routine. Shop for sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30, blocking around 93% of UVB rays. 

Night-Time Nourishment

While salon treatments are key to ever-lasting youthful plumpness, it is essential to make the most of your night-time hours and invest in a night cream that contains ingredients like antioxidants to counteract the effects of the sun and humidity. 

While you are sleeping, skincare should enhance your skin's inherent ability to repair and rejuvenate itself by optimizing cellular turnover and supporting collagen synthesis, leading to a more even skin tone, texture, and overall complexion.

Ingredients such as retinoids, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide are particularly beneficial during nighttime skincare routines, as they promote cellular renewal, boost hydration, and aid in repairing and strengthening the skin's barrier function.

The Importance of Hydration

As the summer draws near, it's crucial to enhance internal and external hydration for a radiant and dewy complexion. In addition to hydrating skincare products such as cleansers, toners, and serums, it is important to ensure you are drinking water and eating nutritious foods to ensure you are hydrated from the inside and your PH levels are balanced. 

This helps your skin by plumping up cells, giving it a smoother appearance and a healthy glow. Hydration also strengthens the skin barrier, which helps fight off irritation and keeps it looking youthful.
