My skin can’t keep up with the harsh summer heat. What’s the best way to stay moisturized?
Even though the summer is coming to a close, the triple-digit and extreme heat will continue on for a few more weeks. We all know how crucial it is to stay hydrated, but it’s just as important to make sure your skin retains moisture. Dehydrated skin can not only be uncomfortable, but in extreme cases can lead to more serious conditions, like eczema or infection. There are some steps you can take to make sure your skin doesn’t go thirsty.
While moisturizing is the best thing you can do, make sure to gently exfoliate regularly as well. This will ensure you are applying moisture to fresh skin cells. If possible, use two different moisturizers—a lighter one for the day and a heavier, restorative cream at night.
You can hydrate from the inside out with the right diet. Drink at least six to eight glasses of water a day, and avoid dehydrating liquids like coffee and sugar-packed fruit juices.
Also, consult your dermatologist about dermabrasion with hydro-wand treatments. The zero-downtime treatment exfoliates and delivers a customized topical serum onto the skin. You will feel refreshed and glowing as soon as you leave the office.
