SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- After a long winter spent inside, most people can't wait to pack away their winter clothes and get outdoors. As the temperatures begin to rise and tanks and shorts are worked into our everyday attire, exposing healthy, beautiful skin is top of mind. With the help of these few simple tips, fighting against skin damage and improving its health and appearance can easily be accomplished, guaranteeing that skin will look its best this season and beyond.
-- Stay hydrated. Particularly during summer's dog days, it's important to make sure you remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Caffeinated beverages such as iced coffee or soda can be refreshing, but they also dehydrate the body. The same goes for alcohol. Water not only refreshes the body, it will also help you stay energized and avoid dehydration.
-- Be sure to moisturize the skin not only after your shower, but during as well. Get a head start on your moisturizing routine by hydrating skin during your shower as well as after.
New Dial(R) Antioxidant Body Wash with Cranberry & Antioxidant Pearls is infused with cranberry extracts and extra moisturizers so skin feels nourished, restored and replenished. Unlike traditional soaps that can leave skin dry and flaky throughout the summer months, Dial Antioxidant Cranberry Body Wash helps renew the skin while you bathe, leaving it feeling softer and smoother after every wash.
-- Antioxidants are essential for healthy summer skin. Antioxidants are important for the body because they help repair skin and combat free radicals caused by air pollution and sunlight.
Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables are one way to receive these skin benefits but now the scientists at Dial have included a powerful antioxidant in new Dial(R) Antioxidant Body Wash with Cranberry & Antioxidant Pearls.
-- Wear sunscreen as well as sunglasses or a hat to protect your face and the area around your eyes. Showcasing your summer skin also involves protecting that skin with adequate sunscreen. A sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) between 30-50 can protect the skin, particularly between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun's ultraviolet rays are at their strongest.
Overexposure to the sun can also result in retinal damage to your eyes, highlighting the importance of sunglasses. What's more, sunglasses and hats can protect the area around your eyes from wrinkling and other signs of sun damage.
