Prepping Your Skin for Summer
Summer is fast approaching, and that means swimsuit season will be here before you know it. Unfortunately, many people are insecure about their skin and will be wearing uncomfortable clothing to cover up. For people who aren’t quite comfortable or who simply want to spruce up before spring, there are many options to explore to make skin look and feel better just in time for summer.
One of the best ways to improve the appearance of one’s skin is through the use of a collagen cream for body and face. Collagen face creams and body creams have natural health benefits that improve the skin’s appearance. The most abundant protein in the body, collagen is used to increase skin’s strength and elasticity, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, cellulite, and scarring. Collagen cream for body use often includes cocoa butter to diminish the appearance of stretch marks as well.
In addition to using collagen creams, people who are concerned about the appearance of their skin should take steps to protect it from harmful UV rays. Sunscreen is a must for anyone who will be outside for any period of time. Loose, long-sleeved shirts and pants can help lower temperatures while protecting skin from the sun. Wide-brimmed hats are also advisable.
If collagen creams and sun protection don’t have your skin looking quite where you want it, consider getting a body wrap at your local spa. Full-body wraps are exactly what they sound like: the body is wrapped in plastic and covered with a sheet for about 30 minutes. A slow cool-down session follows. Then, the wraps are removed and the person is allowed to rinse, then lotion is applied. Body wraps serve the same purpose as a sauna, allowing a person to sweat out toxins and to moisturize the skin.
Taking steps to ensure the health of one’s skin is a great way to have a happy summer with great-looking skin and a healthy outlook.
