Summer. It’s a time of relaxation, reconnection, community and festivity.
It’s also the season when our skin is more regularly exposed to external aggravators such as the harmful UV rays of the sun, dehydrating wind and clogging pollution.
Research has shown that skin ages more at this time of the year than any other due to the time we spend outdoors. So, now is a timely reminder that the consistent application of DMS sun cream, having regular facials and adhering to a good home skin care routine is vital for optimal skin health and protection. And don’t forget a hat and to drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration. Abiding by this is your best defense and will leave you free to enjoy all the best that summer has to offer. It will also go a long way to preventing future symptoms of prolonged sun exposure.
