Want to feel as good as you look this summer? Take these 4 beauty tips from skyn ICELAND into consideration—radiance and happiness will be yours.
SUMMER BEAUTY TIP #1: BE SMART ABOUT SUNSCREEN
Choosing a broad-spectrum sunscreen is critical for keeping skin protected from both kinds of UV rays: UVA (aging) and UVB (burning). skyn ICELAND’s new Icelandic Moisture with Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 offers healthy, hi-tech UVA/UVB protection, plus the added benefits of intense hydration and age-fighting antioxidants. We’re obsessed with the velvety smooth texture that instantly soaks into skin—with zero residue.
SUMMER BEAUTY TIP #2: STAY COOL UNDER THE COVERS
Lack of sleep triggers the body to produce excess amounts of the stress hormone cortisol, which can break down skin collagen and cause inflammation that creates dark under-eye circles. Studies show that a slightly lower body temperature can result in a deeper, more restful night’s sleep. So tonight, try turning up the air conditioning in your bedroom a couple of degrees. Your complexion will thank you for it.
SUMMER BEAUTY TIP #3: SOAK UP THE SUN—IN MODERATION
More Vitamin d = a better night’s sleep. Low levels of vitamin D can cause inflammation and physical discomfort that may disrupt your sleep cycles and leave you feeling sluggish during the day. Just 15-20 minutes of sun daily (yoga on the beach, anyone?) can make you feel more alert, more energized, and more likely to get a good night’s rest.
SUMMER BEAUTY TIP #4: TREAT YOUR EYES TO A TIME OUT
Summer heat and humidity coupled with seasonal allergies can leave you with seriously swollen lids. Our favorite de-puffing pick-me-up? Skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels help firm, tone and deflate delicate under-eye skin within ten minutes. Also, try stashing your eye cream in the fridge for an added burst of soothing comfort.
