May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month and the PLEXIS Wellness Team wants to help protect the skin you’re in. So here are few helpful tips:
Try to stay indoors between 11am and 3pm. That’s when the suns’ rays are the strongest and can have an adverse effect on your skin. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen 30 minutes before you step out. If you’ve been out in the sun for a few hours, touch it up so you’re well protected.
Your body tends to lose a lot of moisture in the summer, so it’s important to regularly replenish the H2O. Drink a lot of water and liquids and your skin will stay soft and moisturized as well.
More than the rest of the year, it’s really important to exfoliate your skin in the summer to remove dead skin and improve blood circulation to the face. Follow it up with a face mask and moisturizer.
Cleanse your face at least twice a day. This is important to do even if you ve been home all day and feel like your skin is clean. Cleansing and moisturizing your skin before sleeping is an absolute must.
