Avoid the burn this summer by establishing a summer skin care regimen! The summer just started so take advantage of it while you can; good skin health to take you through the entire summer is right here at Elizabeth Grady. Your DO’S and DON’TS under the sun…
DO make sure to wear sunscreen – with a recommended minimum SPF of 15 or 30. This should be applied at least 15-30 minutes before you enjoy the sun. Try the Elizabeth Grady sunscreen, and make sure to apply on the lips, eye area, ears, and neck as well!
DO have a facial at least once a month. This will make sure you get rid of excess dirt, oils and impurities that build up during summer months. Also, this will help prevent breakouts!
DO wear your favorite hat! Long visors or rims will help block the rays to prevent burning on your face and eye area. Pair the hat with some sunglasses and you’re good to go. Not only do the sunglasses protect your eyes, but it will keep you from squinting! (This being a major contributor to those lines around the eyes, we want to prevent those too!)
DO moisturize your body and face before and after sun exposure. Being exposed to the sun takes a toll on the natural moisture in your skin, so replenish with moisturizer – and water as well…drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration the sun may cause. Our suggestion: Elizabeth Grady’s Microcare Replenish.
DO avoid the sun during its strongest rays. Between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.: enjoy the shade.
DON’T stop using your sunscreen once you get that tan! You still need the coverage regardless.
DON’T expect all parts of your body to tan equally. Some of the more delicate body parts may need extra time to catch up to speed – less clothing means more exposure!
DON’T overdo your time in the sun. Sun exposure accelerates the skin’s aging process and increases your risk of skin cancer.
DON’T underestimate the importance of regular facial treatments and a proper skin care routine to maintain healthy, smooth, younger-looking skin.
At Elizabeth Grady, all of our make-up is non-comedogenic (non-clogging) and provides broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays that contribute to premature aging of the skin. You can find an SPF in all of our make-up so you’re ready for the sun at any time.
