Summer Skin Care Tips

As the seasons change, so should your skin care treatment. Kidzworld has the tips to help you care for your complexion during the hot summer months.

Cleansers

In hot weather, perspiration combines with your skin's natural oils, making skin harder to clean. That's why you should switch to a deep-cleansing product. Kidzworld recommends The Body Shop's Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser, which is suitable for all skin types. It contains aloe vera, which has excellent soothing and calming properties (great for sunburned skin!), as well as organic babassu oil, which is a non-greasy moisturizer extracted from babassu palm trees that are only found in certain areas of Brazil and South America.

Exfoliaters

Since summer is swimsuit season, your skin has to be ready to be put on display. So get your skin looking its finest with a good exfoliatior like St. Ives Gentle Apricot Scrub for the face and Bath & Body Works Daily High Lather Scrub in a variety of scents for the body. A good scrubdown also helps prepare your skin for tanning products so that it dries streak-free.

Moisturizers

When it's hot and sticky outside, the last thing you want is a greasy face. A light moisturizer is all a normal or dry complexion needs, but those on the oily side should also apply a mattifying product that combats an oily T-zone. A good one to try is Clinique's Pore Minimizer T-Zone Shine Control, a multi-tasking gel that controls oil and shine, mattes the T-zone area and makes large pores appear smaller. It retails for about $13 US.

Sunscreen

Sunscreen is the final and most important step in your summer skin care system. Neglecting to wear sunscreen every day can lead to wrinkles, brown spots and possibly even skin cancer. You can either apply a separate sunscreen, or get a moisturizer that's combined with an SPF of 15 or higher. Make sure to reapply it every hour, since all the swimming, surfing and sweating you do under the sun will wash away your sunscreen.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.
