Summer Skin Care Tips

It's important to wear sunscreen every day.
Summer Skin Care

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.

Im sorry for saying this but your Dads the adult. He knows what hes doing. Hopefully he will get through this phase fast.  Talk to him if you can and tell him how its upsetting you. But its not that serious unless he smokes for the long period of time and then theres the chance of getting cancer.

When I was little my dad used to smoke but he quit. Then a few months ago I found  a lighter in my dad coat. He said my uncle has asked my dad to carry it and had forgot to get it back i believed him. But  i have seen him smoke and I don't know what to do. If I tell my mum they might get a divorce because she wouldn't put up with it. I'm so mad at him I'm not going to speak to him. What do I do ? Should I tell my mum ? Should  I tell my sister ?
