As we approach summer and temperatures
rise, we will be more exposed to the sun's rays.
1. Use sunscreen and don't forget your lips
Sunscreen is essential, especially at this time

Sunscreen is not just for children. The Skin
Cancer Foundation recommends a sunscreen
with a SPF of at least 15.
2. Hydration is key

than at other times of the year due to heat
and humidity. It is important that you drink a
lot, especially water. This will also help your
skin look smooth and hydrated.
3. Buy yourself a big hat
I know we love to use our favorite team’s cap,
but unfortunately it is not the best solution to
protect us from the sun. Tightly woven hats
with at least a three inch brim is

Before shaving you have to prepare the skin,
either with an oil or cream to soften the skin
or with warm water compresses. It is essential
to buy a quality razor and make sure that the
blade is in optimal condition. After shaving, it
is recommended to use a moisturizing cream.
5- Always wear your sunglasses
