Summer Summer Summertime! Time to sit back and unwind! IT’S SUMMERTIME! It’s time to go to the beach, sit out in the sun and enjoy the feel of the warmth on your skin. You know you have to take extra care of your skin as the seasons change right?
Summer brings a warmth that we love to feel, but this summer is starting off full of intense heat. Sunscreen is a must. Don’t listen to the myths anymore! Even though we have melanin that helps protect us from the harmful rays of the sun, we need that extra protection from sunscreens with SPF.
Another thing we need to alter, for the health of our skin, are our hot showers. You might be thinking, “Who wants to take a hot shower during the summer?” You’d be surprised how many people still do and they don’t realize that it’s not the greatest for your skin. Lukewarm showers help to avoid irritating or drying out your skin. Regardless of how much you moisturize your skin afterwards, you can still irritate and dry it out.
Enjoy your summer but make sure you can enjoy your skin afterwards! To learn more, please follow Black Girl Health on Instagram and our blog.
