Now that we’re hitting warmer weather again, we can enjoy the wind through our hair and the sun on our skin. However, our skin is both stronger and weaker than we think. While it can take some sun, it needs some protection and care to make it the best that it can be. Here are 5 quick tips on protecting your skin this spring and summer.

The most important part in keeping it healthy is the protection. Sunscreen is the best way to do this. You want to pick a product that is at least 55 spf. And did you know that drinking tea can protect your skin too? Tea contains nutritional elements that will prevent cancer as well as preventing the breakdown of collagen.

Relaxing is good for your skin too. Stress doesn’t just affect our mental state but also our outward appearance. Stress is known to cause skin issues like breakouts. Finding ways to relax and release the stress can give you better-looking skin.

Speaking of relaxation, mix in some yoga to your exercise routine. Not only is it great for building strength and flexibility, it improves circulation and releases stress.

It’s important to remember to wash your face gently. Many cleansers strip your skin of the natural oils that it needs. Instead, use a mild cleanser that includes a moisturizing element.

Buy a quality moisturizer. Talk to skin experts, like those at A Moments Peace Salon & Day Spa and let them help you find a moisturizer perfect for your skin. Products aren’t the only way to give your skin moisture. Including healthy fats into your diet, like almonds, fish, avocado, can help your skin look youthful.
