You have to take special care of your skin during the summer season. Your skin may look radiant in winter, but when summer comes, the scorching heat of the sun can easily damage your skin and make it dull, blemished and oily. Your body oil flows freely during summer because of the high temperature.
Did you know that 90 percent of the wrinkles you’ll probably get may be caused by too much sun exposure? That is if you don’t protect your skin from sun rays UVA & UVB. These reach the deepest layers of our skin, damaging the collagen. The collagen is the spongy protein that makes our skin smooth, firm and wrinkle-free. SPOT CHECK: Inspect your skin and see if it’s still smooth and firm. Must read: Quick Fixes for Summer Beauty Woes
