The layers of clothing that have covered our skin during the cold are about to return to the closet again. The rays of the sun will reappear to warm our days, and soon we will be able to feel the comfort that the arrival of a new season provides us. But, despite the desire we have to take advantage of the good energy that the sun gives us, we must remember that skin care is necessary every day of the year, and not only when it is abused. Therefore, although we want to take a film tan, make plans on the terrace and enjoy spring and summer, it is also essential to prepare our skin with some care that helps us keep it healthy. The attention that we provide to our body during these seasons allows us to protect it from changes in temperature and humidity, aggressive diseases such as bacteria or viruses and exposure to the sun. We know that taking care of the skin is essential, but it is also important to pay adequate attention to the body skin. At María D'Uol we care about you, so we want to share with you some cares that you can take into account so that your whole body looks healthy, bright and in an optimal state to receive vitamin D without making mistakes or excesses.
Renew your skin with an exfoliator
If during the cold you forgot about body care, make sure that this time it becomes your priority. By getting rid of the dead cells that make your skin look dull and lifeless, you clean the dirt that accumulates on your body and free up clogged pores. Therefore, before the months of intense sun arrive and throughout the spring and summer, do not forget to use a body scrub when you are enjoying a shower or when you get out of it. Exfoliation will allow your skin to rid itself of all bacteria and remain rejuvenated. In the same way, it will help strengthen the dermis, provide elasticity and softness, and make it more resistant to the sun.
Drastic changes in the weather, the increase in temperature, the wind and the sun, make the water that is on our skin able to disappear quickly. Therefore, to avoid the consequences that accelerate the aging process and increase the chances of the appearance of blemishes and imperfections, it is essential to deeply hydrate the body after a good exfoliation, just when the skin is more apt to absorb the nutrients. Of all skin care, hydration and hygiene are the basis for its health and beauty throughout the year. Therefore, during the months when the heat is more present, it is essential that you have as a priority the application of a moisturizing cream that nourishes, provides elasticity and luminosity to the skin, and at the same time, protects it during sun exposure. . On the other hand, don't forget that internal hydration is also essential. Drinking enough water during the day, and even more so when the temperature rises, helps the body to function properly.
Become an ally of sunscreen
Sometimes we are not aware of all the hours that we are exposed to the sun, and many times we forget that applying moisturizer is as important as using a good sunscreen. Therefore, even if you are not on vacation at the beach, there are many places where your skin is at risk of being affected by UVA and UVB rays. Protecting yourself with a good sunscreen will help you avoid the damage that solar radiation causes in the body. In addition, it will be able to enhance the defenses that your skin has to prevent premature aging, allowing the chances of skin cancer and the appearance of spots to be reduced. At María D'Uol we advise you to use sunscreen every day of the year because, in addition, it is one of the best remedies for wrinkles.
Take care of your diet
Maintaining a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals is ideal to take care of our skin in all seasons of the year. So there are a lot of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants that protect the body from external agents such as the sun or pollution, in addition to helping to improve the appearance of the skin. Some of the foods that you can consume to show off healthy skin are carrot, pumpkin, apricot, as well as spinach, broccoli, zucchini, melon, and asparagus.
Protect your sensitive areas
Sometimes we forget that we must pay attention to other areas of our body that are vulnerable to changes in the weather. The neck and décolleté is where the first signs of aging appear. In addition, the hands tend to suffer a lot thanks to the dryness that is produced by the heat and, on the other hand, the back becomes more sensitive to the appearance of pimples that sweat generates. So do not get lost and always remember to hydrate, exfoliate and protect all areas of your body from the sun. At María D'Uol we are here to help you improve your quality of life, starting from the inside, so that you can show it on the outside.
