While New Zealand summers are heaven on earth, we can’t forget to look after our skin. We have put together 3 tips you should be implementing this summer to not only help your skin, but to look after your overall health. 
Don’t forget to exfoliate 
As the weather gets warmer, our skin tends to produce more oil. Exfoliating can help get rid of any dirt, bacteria, sweat and sunscreen residue, leaving your skin feeling as soft as a baby’s bottom. A gentle exfoliant that’s dermatologically tested will be the best way to go. Just make sure to avoid the eye area. 
Always apply sunscreen 
Wearing sunscreen not only protects you from the sun, but it’s the best thing you can do for your skin when it comes to premature ageing. Sunscreen reduces your risk of skin cancer and sun damage and should be the first thing you put on your skin every single day – even on cloudy days! 
Stay in the shade 
You might be thinking, what has this got to do with skincare? Well, everything! Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Don’t forget to slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. Always wear a hat, sun protected clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and stay in the shade.
