Drink Plenty of Water
No matter what season it is, spring, summer, or fall, you should be drinking plenty of water! Not only does water help improve the look and feel of your skin but it helps your entire body function better. The recommended daily intake of water is about eight glasses per day. We recommend getting a cute and portable water bottle that you can bring with you no matter where you go! Keep this water bottle on your desk while you work and remember to take a sip here and there. Water can help clear your skin, keep it hydrated, and give it a more plump look! Water may also help your skin produce less oil, which can lead to less breakouts and blackheads.
Most people only equate sunscreen with the hot summer months. However, the truth is that you should be wearing sunscreen during all times of the year. Sunscreen is especially important in the winter months. The sun is equally as powerful and it can even reflect off the snow and ice. The reflection can be strong and leave your skin red and even sunburned. Protect your skin by wearing sunscreen. Whether you’re wearing it alone or underneath your makeup, your skin will thank you!
Use Hydrating Products
The air tends to be dryer during the winter months. All of the wind, snow, and cold air can leave your skin feeling dry and irritated. You may also notice that your skin becomes drier than it is in the summer. It’s completely normal for your skin to fluctuate during the seasons, so if you’re noticing a change, you may want to reach for hydrating products. This can help give your skin a sense of balance and help keep it comfortable!
Over-cleansing your skin, or washing it too frequently, can lead to dry and irritated skin. It may seem like you’re doing yourself a favor by washing it to rid it of dirt, grime, and makeup, over cleaning your skin can leave it extremely dry. While it's important to wash your face, we recommend that you wash your face in the morning and at night before you go to bed. If you’ve finished a hard workout or have been sweating, it's also a good idea to wash your face. If you need to refresh your skin, splashing some cold water on it can also help wake up and freshen up your skin!
Invest In Quality Skin Care
Everyone’s skin is different and there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to skincare. Medical grade skin care can help target those pesky skin conditions that you’re looking to correct, but oftentimes you need a prescription or have to get it from a dermatologist office. This can be not only time consuming, but costly as well. Dr. Myla created Pretty Rx to be a place where women of all ages, races, and ethnicities can get medical grade skincare. Let your skin be a part of your confidence this next season.
