5 Skin Care Tips for Summertime Dryness, Juneau, Alaska

While winter is often thought of as the time of year when skin is most likely to be dry, warmer conditions can also cause you to lose natural hydration. Factors like excessive heat can take their toll over the long summer months. Luckily, there are a few simple skin care tips you can follow to combat these effects and enjoy a beautiful glow all season long. 

5 Skin Care Strategies for Combating Dryness

1. Moisturize Daily

Hydrating the skin helps maintain its vibrancy and suppleness, which allows you to keep dryness and fine lines at bay. While moisturizing should be a step you take every day all year-round, look for a light, non-greasy formula to stay hydrated without risking breakouts in the summer.

2. Be Mindful of the AC

While cranking the heat can cause skin to dry out in the winter, the AC can have a similar effect in the warm season. Your cooling system at home, work, and in your car can contribute to dryness. Consider using a humidifier if your environment is particularly dry.

3. Make SPF a Priority

skin careApply sunblock with an SPF of 15 or higher every day to prevent the sun’s harmful and drying rays from impacting your skin. If you plan on heading outdoors during the midday hours, wear a wide-brim hat and try to stay in the shade.

4. Use Face Masks Regularly

Nowadays, face masks with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid are widely available in makeup stores, drugstores, and online. Since they’re so affordable, consider purchasing a few and trying them out to see which one you like best to keep your skin soft.

5. Don’t Forget to Exfoliate

Scrubbing dry skin might seem counterintuitive, but you actually need to slough away old skin cells for new ones to thrive. Add a gentle face scrub to your skin care routine, but avoid over-exfoliation. For best results, exfoliate no more than two to three times per week, and always follow up with a moisturizer.
