Are you simply aching to hit the road to go fishing in the Rio Grande or go hiking in the Sandia Mountains? Maybe in fine weather, you might plan to head out of town to go beachcombing, instead. What is summer fun without being outdoors for most of the week? Whatever you do outdoors, you’ll want to make sure that your skin is as gorgeous and well protected from the harsh New Mexico sun. If you plan on doing a lot of swimming this season, your shapely new bikini should go perfectly well with flawless arms and legs, courtesy of Albuquerque hair removal services.

Summer Skin
Protect your skin with water.

There’s no antioxidant more readily accessible than water. Yes, hydrating as often as you can does more than just refresh you to deal with the summer’s heat; it also helps your body flush away impurities and cleanse your skin while aiding the rest of your immune system to fight off illnesses that could rain on your summer parade.

Keep your skin glowing.

Never forget to exfoliate! Keep this a part of your regular summer regimen to keep your skin looking young, smooth, and healthy-looking throughout the harsh weather. The heat of summer can easily leave your skin dry, and prone to show lines and other aging signs. Try efficient natural exfoliating substances and techniques, and don’t be afraid to invest in efficient exfoliating creams and other skin care products, such as those from Image Skincare.

Stay away from the sun when you can.

Even on the beach or walking out in the sun, you still need to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. At some point, you’ll have to get into some maintenance routine to keep your skin protected and healthy, without compromising your holidays in the sun, as She Knows contributor Christy Pogorelac writes:

“If you accidentally miss a spot with your sunscreen or get too much sun exposure, then it helps to take an anti-inflammatory, such as ibuprofen, to help reduce your body’s painful reaction to the sun. Take anti-inflammatories for the first 24 hours after sun exposure. Also, have a cooling lotion or aloe readily available to help keep the affected area moisturized, speed healing and offer a little relief.”

Get rid of unwanted hair.

Don’t leave any unwanted bits of hair peeking out of your bikini area, which can look unsightly. When you’ve had your laser hair removal by Albuquerque professionals like Belleza Med Spa done a few months ago, you don’t need to worry for a while yet about hair coming back to haunt you and undo your fit image in a bikini.

Always remember to take care of your skin; the benefits of the sun are without question, vital and life-giving; however, the summer sun isn’t exactly your best friend when you’re getting too much of it.
