The warmest season of the year is around the corner and while the sunshine and outdoor activities can be fun, they can also be harsh on your skin. Too much sun exposure, paired with heat and humidity, might lead to sunburns, dehydration, breakouts and premature aging.

If you’re looking for amazing tips to enjoy summer and keep your skin healthy and radiant at the same time, you’re in the right place. Check it out!

1. Sun protection is your #1 priority
Wearing sunscreen is the best way to protect your skin year-round. UV rays can lead to sunburns, accelerated aging, and dark spots. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every morning and reply as needed throughout the day, preferably every two hours, especially if you’re in the water or sweating. Don’t forget to apply it to your ears, neck and back of your hands.

At Maryam Collahi Medspa, we carry AlumierMD, a respected Canadian brand for medical grade skincare. Its sunscreen line will attend to all your needs with options for dry and oily skins, and tinted versions.

2. Keep your skin clean
Cleaning your face is a crucial step to remove sweat, oil and impurities from your skin. During summer, the heat can increase oil production and sweat, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Use a cleanser that suits your skin type and add a weekly gentle exfoliation to help remove dead skin cells.

At Maryam Collahi Medspa, we can help you with an extra push to unclog your pores and get a refreshed look: try one of our Deep Pore Cleansing facials and get rid of the excess sebum.

3. Stay hydrated
Hydration is key to prevent dry and flaky skin. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and choose a hydrating facial to keep a plump complexion during the season. One of your favourite facials is OxyGeneo 3-in-1, known for its three steps that ensure that glowy look we love: exfoliation, oxygenation and nourishment with special serums.

4. Maintain a healthy lifestyle
Your skin health is heavily impacted by your lifestyle. Eating a balanced diet, moving your body and getting enough sleep are some of the essential steps to keep a glowing complexion. Summer can get busy with all the outdoor activities, travels and meeting up with friends to enjoy the sunshine.

Make sure to eat your fruits, vegetables and healthy fats, paired with at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Exercising regularly will also help to boost circulation and reduce stress, improving your general wellbeing.
