Summer is here!
It’s not going nearly as awesome as I envisioned it, life balance is hard, isn’t it? My kids are more bored than I anticipated and I haven’t been able to be the mom I’d like to be. However, the summer is still young, and I know we’ll do better. I also know it’s okay to allow my kids to be bored, I was just hoping it wouldn’t be as much as it has been.
We have some seriously hot weather coming up around here, in the 100’s over the weekend which involves lots of pool time and lots of pool time involves lots of chlorine which means we need to take extra efforts to take care of our skin. I’m sure, like a lot of you guys, we spend a lot of time outdoors and in the sun during the summer which can take a toll on our skin. I know I often remember to make sure my kids are lathered up but somehow I often forget about my own!
I don’t go in the pool as often as my kids do, but I certainly am out by the pool hanging out and enjoying the sun, so my skin is definitely still seeing the effects of it. So I’ve got a few tips on how us moms can take care of our skin this summer too!
Caring for Dry Skin in the Summer
My tips are super simple and practical, as always, because I know most of you guys are moms or busy women with other things to do than think about moisturizing your skin! However, with these tips, you’ll be able to have great skin & keep up with your daily life.
Use a Foot Cream
Who has time for a pedicure every couple weeks? Who can afford them? I know I can’t but I still want to wear sandals all summer! My feet can get pretty rough around the heels, but I’ve found that if I apply Amlactin® foot cream my feet are soft as a baby in the morning! It helps prevents plots and cracks & heal calluses. It’s a great tip & perfect for fresh summer feet!
Body Cream at Night
Your body is rejuvenating at night and it’s a perfect time to kinda help it out. Add some Amlactin® Hydrating Body Cream to your rough spots at night — elbows, knees, shoulders — and in the morning they will be noticeably softened. Amlactin has a patented ULTRAPLEX® formula gently exfoliates and is clinically proven to deeply hydrate. It’s a perfect way to rejuvenate your skin through the night while you’re sleeping – multitasking!!
It’s super important, specially in the heat, to stay hydrated. The best thing you can do for your skin is keep it healthy inside and out. Dry a lot of water this summer and try to lay off of the sodas and sugary drinks. This will help your body and skin in more way than one!
Apply Lotion after Swimming
Pool, lake, or beach water can seriously dry out your skin. So much so that your skin even feels tight and dry after a day by the pool. A great way to counteract this is by rinsing off the pool, beach, or lake water & applying some daily lotion. Your skin will soak it up and you won’t feel the negative affects of the day by or in the water. Even if you start to get a little tan, the lotion will help your skin stay healthy in the process.
There you have it! Aren’t they super simple, helpful tips? I sure hope so!
