As we spend more time outdoors enjoying the sun and hopefully hit the water, it’s important to take some steps to maintaining healthy looking skin, especially during this time of the year when you get the most sun exposure and shave more often!

Recently in Miami, we met with skin care expert and board certified dermatologist, Dr. Barba,  and she shared some tips for moms & tias (aunties) about maintaing a beauty routine during hot months to look and feel your best. As we age maintaining skin moisturized is even more important.
Dr. Barba also shared a simple product you shouldn’t live without this summer in the video at the end of this post – plus  a chance to get the product for free with our giveaway below!
 Dr. Barba’s 3 Summer Skin Care Tips for Women:
  • TIP #1: Exfoliate regularly – but be sure to avoid overdoing it

In the age of cleansers with beads, at home peels, exfoliating skincare and sonic cleansing brushes, it is easy to think that “more is better.”Using “more” product(s) or being “more” aggressive with your skin does not necessarily translate into better results. Start with a simple routine. When all else fails, consult a professional, like a dermatologist or an aesthetician, to receive advice on the best skincare products for your skin. Little changes can make BIG improvements to your skin.

  • TIP #2: ALWAYS wash your face at night

Going to bed with makeup on is like begging for a pimple in the morning. On nights that I absolutely don’t have the energy to wash my face (gasp!) I use moisturizing cleansing cloths that I keep next to the night stand. I use them to wipe the makeup off my face as a last resort but don’t feel as guilty as sleeping with makeup on. A good wipe is better than leaving pore clogging make-up on all night that may cause a future breakout. Cleansing wipes are also great to take on overnight flights. I often recommend them to my patients who travel a lot. They are easy to pack and can have a huge impact on women suffering from acne breakouts, often due to flying with makeup on and falling asleep with it on it at night.
  • TIP #3: Give some needed TLC to most overlooked areas!

Remember your neck, chest, underarms, arms and hands when moisturizing to keep these areas looking healthy. The underarm skin is also an area that is often forgotten about but is just as equally important, especially in the warmer months. During the summer months, we shave our underarms more often, which can result in chafing or dark marks. Try products like the Dove Advanced Care line of deodorants/antiperspirants. In addition to providing 48 hour of odor and wetness protection, they are formulated with NutriumMoisture™, designed to help skin retain its moisture balance over time and aid in the skin’s natural renewal process.  The Dove Advanced Care Clear Tone line contains ingredients like calendula to restore skin to its natural tone.

  • REALLY think about the skin under your arms

Check out the product that Dr. Barba recommends to keep your underarm skin looking young, plus feeling fresh. Surprisingly it’s antipersperant that’s considered a beauty product because it helps moisturize your skin.
