Summer Skincare Tips: How to Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage

Summer is here, and with it comes long days of sunshine and outdoor fun. While enjoying the warm weather, it’s crucial to protect your skin from sun damage. At Pear Beauty Spa, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy, glowing skin all year round. Here’s our summer skincare tips on how to keep your skin safe and beautiful during the summer months.

Understanding Sun Damage

Sun damage occurs when your skin is overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. This can lead to premature aging, dark spots, and an increased risk of skin cancer. UV rays are strongest between 10 AM and 4 PM, so it’s essential to take extra precautions during these hours.

Essential Summer Skincare Tips

1. Use Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen

A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and apply it generously to all exposed skin. Don’t forget often-missed areas like your ears, the back of your neck, and your feet. Reapply every two hours, or more frequently if you’re swimming or sweating. Our newest skincare line, Colorescience will be your best friend for these summer months. This line includes all mineral SPF protection in every product.

2. Stay Hydrated

Hydrated skin is healthy skin. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to sun damage and can look dry and flaky. Using a light-weight moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated and glowing, we recommend G.M. Collin’s Marine Collagen Revitalizing Cream.

3. Wear Protective Clothing

Whenever possible, wear protective clothing such as wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and long-sleeved shirts. Look for clothing with a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating for added protection. Lightweight, breathable fabrics can help keep you cool while shielding your skin.

4. Seek Shade

Avoid direct sun exposure by seeking shade, especially during peak sun hours. Use umbrellas, trees, or awnings to protect your skin. Remember, even in the shade, UV rays can still reach you, so don’t skip the sunscreen.

5. Incorporate Antioxidants into Your Skincare Routine

Antioxidants like Vitamin C can help protect your skin from free radical damage caused by UV exposure. Incorporate antioxidant-rich serums or moisturizers into your daily skincare routine to boost your skin’s defense. Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages as we dive into tons of information about why adding a Vitamin C serum is a crucial skincare step. We recommend G.M. Collin’s Vital C15 Serum.
