As winter gives way to warmer temperatures on the rise, it’s time to rethink your skincare routine. The shift from cold, dry weather to sunny, warm, and humid days can significantly impact your skin.
Few tips for healthy living this summer.
Get Vitamin D! From immunity support to mood stability and defending cells against cancer, Vitamin D has a host of benefits. Yet, it’s still one of the most common nutrient deficiencies.
Wear your sunscreen. While you’re getting your Vitamin D from sun exposure, don’t forget to wear your sunscreen to protect your skin!
Stay hydrated. Hydration is important for your health (especially your skin’s health) during any time of the year, but especially during the summer sun and heat.
Wear sunglasses. Protective eyewear can not only help prevent cataracts but wearing sunglasses can also help prevent wrinkles around the eyes.
Eat fruits and vegetables. Summer is farmer’s market season! Head over to your local farmer’s market to find locally-grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables to spruce up your plate. Not only does fruit help meet daily nutrient intake, but it also can promote healthy skin!
Lack of sleep can lead to increased levels of stress hormones, which may slow the production of collagen in the skin. When our skin stops producing collagen, it begins to lose elasticity and starts looking tired and worn.
