Spring has arrived. It’s getting warmer by the day and, although we may not notice it, our skin is being incerasingly exposed to the sun. Our skin knows how to naturally adapt to new weather conditions, but certain precautions are necessary to keep our skin in the best possible condition.
1. Avoid the sun. This is one of the key leitmotifs of this blog. Use sunglasses and sunscreen (and not just on the beach) and, as far as possible, avoid exposing the skin to direct sunlight. The neckline, neck and hands are especially vulnerable to premature photoageing. For a tanned look, rather than overdo sunbathing, better use a fake tanning cream, taking the necessary precautions first.
2. Eat vegetables and drink fruit juices. Their vitamins and antioxidants improve the appearance of the skin.
3. Moisturize the skin of both the face and body at least once a day. If you use a night regenerating face cream with retinoids you need to be especially careful to avoid sun exposure.
5. Other treatments are best left to autumn (age spot bleaching, peeling treatments, intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal and lasers), since there is a risk of hyperpigmentation from exposure to the sun.
