Summertime: a time where everything is just better. A time where we flock to our chosen holiday destination in search of fun and relaxation. A time we spend frolicking with our friends and family. A time we, above all else, enjoy. However, as a good a time as the summertime is, it can also be bad for our faces. Specifically, it can be bad for our lips and our skin. But just because it can be bad for these facial features or ours, it doesn’t mean it can’t be fought. It doesn’t mean these plights can’t be fought. Read on to find out just how you can fight them.
Whether you go on a summer holiday in search of snow and skiing, or whether you go in search of sun and sand, your lips are going to suffer. The cold air and temperatures of a skiing holiday will induce dry, cracked lips. You probably already know that. In fact, you probably have to fight that plight throughout the cold winter months back home. But it’s not just cold temperatures that can do this to your lips. No, warm ones can too; the sun’s rays can dry your lips just as much as the cold can. So, no matter where it is you go or what you do on your summer holiday, you’re going to want to protect your lips. To do so you should invest in richly textured lip balm with an SPF of fifteen or higher. This will keep your lips hydrated, meaning cold temperatures and the sun’s rays can’t dry them. And it will also, importantly, protect your lips from the dangers of the sun’s rays.
Of course, the sun’s rays aren’t just a danger to your lips; they’re a danger to your skin too. The need to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun is something that you’re probably more than aware about. Therefore, we won’t insult your intelligence by telling that you need do it and in fact how to do it. But you also need to give precedence to what else the sun can to the skin on your face: like your lips, it can make it dry. Even if there is no evidence of inflammation of your skin, your skin can be suffering from the plight that is dryness and the further plights that it induces, such as flaking or scaling. But, fear not, as there a number of ways in which to fight these plights. One way is to shop natural skin care products online and to find a product that is built specifically for the purpose of combating UV-induced dryness. Another way is take lukewarm baths or showers for a short period of time in your day. And a final way to fight the plight of dry skin — that is far more comfortable to do than take a lukewarm bath — is to drink some red wine. This type of wine specifically contains resveratrol which, when consumed, can decrease dryness as well as redness when your skin is inflicted with them.
