Celebs swear by their dermatologists, but for the rest of us, it can be a challenge keeping our skin healthy and happy during the summer. Get 5 top expert tips below!
Summer heat and humidity can lead to excess oil, acne and sunburns, and no one wants any of those! We spoke to Dove Dermatologist Dr. Ellen Marmur to get her best advice on how to keep your skin in tip-top shape this summer.
Here are 5 summer skincare tips from Dr. Ellen Marmur:
“1. Arming yourself with a wide assortment of sun protection early in the summer is key. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to those sometimes forgettable places like ears and scalp and look for clear spray sunscreens for an easy application!
2. Sweat, salt, chlorine and makeup can dehydrate the skin. Remember to drink water (yes, 8 glasses a day) and moisturize twice daily, avoiding harsh soaps and products that sting.
3. Start your summer skin care routine in the shower with the new Dove Summer Care collection! The beauty bar and body wash are uniquely formulated with mild cleansers, hydrating moisturizers, and gentle exfoliating beads to keep skin smooth, naturally glowing and ready to be revealed all summer long!
4. Invest in a great summer scarf to protect your shoulders from intense mid-day sun.
5. Use body oils to keep skin dewy. Apply them at night to the areas you plan to shave the next morning. This softens the hair follicle and prevents skin irritation!”
