This article intends to give 5 practical tips to avoid the appearance or aggravation of facial spots in summer and beach / pool seasons. As it’s not sponsored, the brands and products that we refer to are only intended to exemplify what you should use and simplify your life if you choose to try our suggestions. We’ve tried them all and they really work! Here they go:
1 – Choose a suitable sunscreen for your face and use it properly. It seems a basic idea, but many people still do not know which protector to choose (expensive is not synonymous with quality) let alone in what quantities they should apply it. If you want useful information on this subject, read the article at https://goldandbeauty.com/en/2018/07/14/the-best-sunscreens-of-2018/). Remember that you can use a protector with color in order to disguise spots that have already been installed if you do not want to put on makeup.
2 – Wear a hat or cap with sun protection. Yes, there is already SPF clothing, including hats and caps. This is important for those who have partial or total absence of hair, skin problems (pigmentation, sun allergy, rosacea …) and especially for children. In the sun (especially at the beach / pool) and driving, it is essential to wear a hat / cap, but ideally they should be made of materials that guarantee a sun protection factor. There are several brands and prices, but we recommend that you look in the sports shops (Decathlon, for example, that has affordable options) or search the Net: Coolibar brand is excellent, although it is a bit expensive (https://www.coolibar.com/); NSR brand (https://www.nrs.com/); … Do not forget to see our photogallery!
3 – In summer and beach / pool seasons, avoid scrubs, acids and peels. As desperate as a stain is, remember that it will aggravate it if, with sun and heat, apply a product and / or more intensive treatment. This will happen even if you use a sunscreen properly. Do not let the sunspot get worse by following our tips and leave the interventions more intervention by the end of the summer. In the meantime, put into practice a morning routine that replenishes the skin barrier of the face (read about it at https://goldandbeauty.com/en/2018/07/21/morning-routine-summer-2018/), use make-up and / or a sunscreen with color to disguise the unsightly spots and, at night, apply products that soothe your skin and restore its hydration (Avène range Tólerance, Roche Posay gamma Cicaplast or Toleriane, CeraVe PM Moisturizing Facial Lotion, etc).
4 – Sunglasses are more important than you think. In addition to protecting the eyes and the surrounding area, sunglasses inhibit the production of the hormone MSH, responsible for the formation of melanin skin, among others. So, anyone with pigmentation problems should wear glasses with dark lenses whenever possible, because the very light of day stimulates the same pigmentation.
5 – Add some simple extras to your food. With summer, there are overeating and fizzy drinks, as well as alcohol and inconstant sleep. All this is reflected in the skin, so you can fight the adverse effects with some simple daily habits: fasting, drink a glass of warm water with juice of half a lemon; ingest teas with ice whenever possible (choose the best ones at https://goldandbeauty.com/en/2018/06/08/the-5-best-teas-on-a-diet/); increase consumption of low-glycemic and high-vitamin (kiwi, peach, melon, red fruit, apple, guava and pear) fruits; before lunch and dinner, drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar diluted in it. To this, of course, the consumption of 2 liters of water per day and the increase of vegetable consumption.
Live the summer in the best way and do not forget that at the end of the season we will give you tips on how to fight the evil spots if they appear!
