The Right Care. Right Now.

How Can I Get Glowing Skin in the Summer?

Glowing skin was made in the summer, right? Wrong!

Technically, you can have glowing skin during all the seasons throughout the year. While we often think of a tan as being a “healthy” glow, the fact of the matter is—it's not.

That's why our team at AFC Urgent Care Bronx Webster Ave. wants to offer some insight into how to get glowing skin, minus the skin cancer risk.

How Can I Hydrate My Skin Over the Summer?

Hydration is one key way to keep your skin glowing this summer. There are a number of ways to keep your skin hydrated over the summer.

First, you want to make sure you are moisturizing your skin often throughout the hotter months. Especially since your skin is losing a lot of moisture during the summer months through sweating, you want to make sure you are adding back in that moisture through a proper moisturizer. But staying hydrated isn't the only way to get that glow.

Ways to Make Skin Glow This Summer

  • Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Avoid sugar and eat plenty of fruits and veggies.

How Can I Reduce My Skin's Risk of Aging?

Well, the number one thing to avoid—excess time in the sun, particularly without sunscreen. But there are other steps you can take to protect your skin and boost its youthful appearance.

Ways to Keep Skin Youthful

  • Limit sun exposure.
  • Manage stress levels.
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Wash your face regularly.
  • Don't smoke.
