cleansing

moisturize

The key to cleansing is to be gentle and avoid extremes: Wash your face with a mild, soap-free cleanser that contains moisturizers and use warm water, as hot water strips skin of oil and moisture.

protect

Apply sunscreen to your face and other exposed body parts being careful not to forget often overlooked areas like ears and the back of the neck. In addition to sunscreen, seeking shade, covering exposed areas with loosely-fitted clothing and wearing a hat and sunglasses are helpful. Reapply sunscreen as needed throughout the day, particularly after swimming or when humidity is high.10-12

Sunlight is the leading cause of prematurely aging skin and skin cancers, so it’s important to shield yourself from its damaging effects. Rain or shine, always use sunscreen as part of your daily routine. Sunscreens should screen UVA and UVB radiation and have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

To achieve polished, touchable skin, consider hair removal. There are a number of “do it yourself” hair removal methods, including depilatories, waxes, shaving and tweezing. The results of each method may vary from one person to another, with hair regrowth beginning anywhere between a few hours to a few days. Perform a preliminary test on a small area of skin to gauge your reaction to specific products.18, 19
