As soon as the summer arrives, I’m the first one to take off my clothes, put on my tiniest swimsuit (Hey! Nobody wants to see swim shorts tan lines ok?) Go to the beach, lie under the sun and work on my tan. Who doesn’t want to look bronzed and sexy?
However, before you can enjoy a frozen margarita by the pool, there are a few things you should do to protect and keep your skin healthy and vibrant all summer long. For this reason, I asked Dr. Jeffrey Benabio, a board-certified practicing dermatologist and one of four Dove Men+Care experts, for some tips and tricks to fight summer skin problems!
Sunscreen protects your skin against the damage of the sun. Overexposure to it leads to wrinkling and aging but also increases the risk of developing skin cancer that’s why it’s important that you wear sunscreen every day, especially during the summertime.
Wash It Off
Sunscreen defends your skin against the solar rays but at the same time can cause problems if it’s not washed off. As it turned out, the research that we have shows that half of the men never wash their face! That’s why I recommend using Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash. What’s great about it is that guys can use it on their face as well as their body, therefore, they don’t have to worry about having a specific product to wash their face.
One of the most valuable things that we could do when we are taking care of our skin is to be sure it is well protected and moisturized; especially during the hot summer days when we have to wash it more often. You need to make sure the products you are using aren’t stripping the natural oils of your skin. Choose a product that locks in moisturize like Dove Men+Care Hydrate Face Lotion, it has the right thickness and it doesn’t feel greasy nor heavy. – Plus it has SPF 15.
Be Cautious With Your Arm Pits
Underarm irritation its a common problem for men and often, they make the mistake of choosing not to wear antiperspirants/deodorants because they feel that’s the source of the irritation. Dove Men+Care Antiperspirants and Deodorants are specifically designed for men, with moisturizer to nourish the skin and strong enough to provide 24hrs protection without irritation.
A Good Scrub
Exfoliating is essential for flawless and glowing skin. A good scrub will remove impurities as well as sunscreen residues. Use the Dove Men+Care Dual Sided Shower Tool to cleanse using the mesh side and the scrub side for a deeper clean and to exfoliate your skin.
Don’t Forget About Your Hair
Wash your hair daily to eliminate impurities from salt or chlorinated water. Dove Men+Care Aqua Impact Fortifying Shampoo is perfect for that because it not only moisturizes, but it also strengthens hair with a revitalizing kick of active freshness.
There you go! Now if you excuse me, there’s a hot and shirtless lifeguard waiting for me at the beach… Alla voy guapo!
