Great ways to look after your skin on holiday this summer
08 Mar 2014
It's so easy for us to neglect our skin when we're having a ball on holiday. However, it's advisable not take any risks when it comes to your skin and the sun, as the damage can be irreparable.
Below are a few useful tips you can follow to ensure your skin is protected at all times during your vacation this summer:
Invest in good quality sun screen and apply it regularly
Most people are aware that applying sunscreen regularly on holiday is an absolute must. We are likely to have a great amount of sun exposure, so it's better to always keep our skin protected.
This is particularly true for those who have undergone laser hair removal treatment sessions before jetting off on their vacation. This is because our skin becomes more sensitive to sunlight after hair removal laser treatment. Products like sun block prevent us from the risk of getting any form of pigmentations, burns, patchy skin and etc.
You can always seek for further information about this and the typical do's and don'ts from an experienced dermatologist at one of our sk:n laser hair removal clinics.
Knock yourself out - go for a dip in the sea
It depends on the beach, but salty seawater can be cleansing to the skin, so make sure you go for a dip in the sea during your holiday. This would particularly be beneficial for those who have troublesome skin such as eczema and acne.
Eat fresh fruit, fish and vegetables
Some of us can't help but to indulge ourselves on holiday, eating unhealthy foods we probably stay away from when back at home.
Although there is nothing wrong with that, we should still make sure we are eating a substantial amount of fresh fruit, fish and vegetables, no matter where we are.
