Get Ready for Summer: 5 Tips for Prepping Your Skin

Sure we are still in the early to mid days of spring, however warmer days are on the horizon! In fact, it is 80 degrees here today in California. I love it!

So yes, It’s almost summertime and you know what that means – beach days, mini vacations, and spending time outdoors! But after the long and cold winter months, your skin may not be ready for the summer sun. To help cleanse and hydrate your skin, try these simple techniques to get glowing and revitalized for the summer season. Revitalize Your Skin This Summer with These Simple Techniques for a Glowing Complexion!

Tip Number One: Exfoliate

It’s essential to keep your skin looking its best during the summer months. I highly recommend beginning the season with a chemical exfoliation to get rid of dull winter skin and help your skin adjust to the warmer, more humid weather.  Once you’ve done this, you should continue an exfoliating regimen at home. By utilizing a gentle scrub at least once a week, you can remove dead, flaky skin from both your face and body, preventing blemishes as well as a dull appearance. Exfoliating weekly (not daily) can be extremely beneficial for the appearance and texture of the skin, especially to help with cell turnover and remove dirt and oils left on the skin’s surface. Here are a few face and body exfoliators that are gentle and effective. The key factor here is to help shed off that dead skin and keep those pores clean. Most of these are for normal to sensitive skin, while also getting the job done.

TIP TWO Hydrate Your Skin Regularly

It’s essential to keep your skin hydrated year-round. To prevent dryness and breakouts, switch to lighter moisturizers during the summer months. A light cream, lotion, or serum can help keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Don’t forget to regularly hydrate your skin for optimal health. If you don’t take the necessary steps to care for your dry skin, your oil glands may produce too much oil, leading to breakouts. Neglecting to address dryness can have serious consequences for your skin. Here are a variety of light moisturizers. I also included two face veils of mist that you can throw in a beach bag.

Eau Thermale Avene Hydrance LIGHT Hydrating Emulsion, Daily Face Moisturizer Cream, Non-Comedogenic.

FACE MISTS

innisfree Cherry Blossom Dewy Glow Mist Hydrating Face Spray. Fine mist infused with a blend of cherry blossom leaf extract, niacinamide & betaine to help visibly brighten, hydrate & refresh skin.

TIP THREE SUNSCREEN!!

Women and Men who have a regular skincare routine should be aware that applying sufficient amounts of SPF each day is essential for protecting their skin from the sun’s harmful rays and keeping it invigorated and glowing. According to experts, mineral-based SPF with Zinc or Titanium is the most effective in blocking UV A rays. When choosing an SPF, always check the labels for Zinc or Titanium as one of the active ingredients. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your scalp and the tops of your feet, two areas that are often neglected. ELTA MD UV Spray is a great option for easy application on these areas or Supergoop! PLAY SPF 30 Antioxidant Body Mist & Copper Tone Spray, especially the near the ears and scalp. Remember to reapply your SPF every two hours when exposed to natural sunlight. I have a whole in-depth blog post and video on sunscreens I will link below.

BEST SUNSCREENS

TIP FOUR , Stay Hydrated, DRINK UP H20!

If you’re exposed to UV rays daily, you may find yourself sweating to keep your body cool. To counteract the loss of bodily fluids, it’s important to drink plenty of water. Not only does water improve the elasticity of your skin, but it also gives it a hydrated, healthy look. Consuming several glasses of water a day can make a big difference in the quality of your skin. Make it a priority to drink water every hour, and always carry a bottle with you. Hydrating the skin by drinking water is important because it helps to keep the skin cells plump and hydrated, which can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help to improve skin tone and texture, as well as reduce inflammation. Drinking water can also help to flush out toxins from the body, which can help to improve overall skin health.

TIP NUMBER FIVE Have your Accessories Handy!

Preparing for the summer season ahead of time is a wise decision, as it allows you to take the time to find the perfect items that suit your style and needs. This way, you can avoid the last-minute rush and ensure that you have everything you need for the summer season. If you’re going to be in the sun, make sure to plan your outfit accordingly. Look for quality sun-blocking sunglasses, lightweight cover-ups, and wide-brimmed hats to protect your skin from the sun’s rays. Protection from the sun keeps our skin from aging faster and staves away any type of skin issues in the future. Get your skin moles checked if you suspect anything. Sure I love a bit of flair when it comes to sunglasses and hats, but if I am honest I really do use them to protect my skin. I didn’t take care of my skin in college and now I regularly get my skin checked.

Extra Tip: If you do get a sunburn, natural aloe vera is a great remedy. It’s easy to take care of and you can get a plant for easy access to burn relief without any chemicals. Eating healthy is also a great way to take care

Lastly, Summer is the most enjoyable time of the year but it is crucial to prepare and take care of your skin with the changing season. Make the time to adequately hydrate and moisturize your skin before enjoying the warm temperatures. Cleanse your skin regularly and don’t let your busy schedule throw off your daily skin routine. Always remove your makeup before bed and remember to exfoliate to keep your skin glowing. Make the best of your summer by invigorating your body and rejuvenating your skin’s appearance. xo -Kim

Comment “TAN” for 🎥 on the peptides. Do you get a weird rash when you go in the Sun?

My UV allergy began 3 years ago.
It became difficult going outside and on trips where the sun would be intense because my skin would blow up with a blistering itchy rash.

#summervibes #backyardpool 

Over the past month I used MELANOTAN 2 to increase my melanin production. This triggered my bodies melanocytes to make more melanin when I went into UV light.

It took me a month to build up this solar protection and now I feel free to go outside without the fear of a massive rash blowing up.

If you want to see the videos on how I used MELANOTAN 2 and how I’m using MELANOTAN 1 comment “TAN” for this videos and blog sent to your DM inbox.

@shred.bathandbeyond cracks me up daily with his gym talk 😂 it’s extremely relatable.
And no, I don’t hate my body, but I know I can become hyper-fixated or critical at times.

24 Hours Post Microneedling…

Last night I microneedled with my channel pro micro-channeling pen.

The blog details everything I use and wear to source. Comment “SKIN” for the blog and App link sent to your DM 📥.

The Channel Pro Pen differs from a Dr Pen because you stamp rather than skim the skin.

Like a Dr Pen you choose your cartridge however, unlike a Dr Pen there is no depth dial. 
Instead, I pick my cartridge by depth. Last night I used a .5mm 82 pin flower cartridge.

I mixed up umbilical lining Exosomes and added GHK-cu and NAD+ to my microneedling serum.

This year I’ve learned a lot about peptides, how they signal on cellular wall receptors and can optimize our systems.

With this in mind, getting peptides in deeper only makes sense when our skin barrier is made up of keratin rich cells that are no longer living. 

These top cells have expelled their internal nucleus and organelles, which means topicals can hydrate these dead cells, but can’t affect or improve them.

This is why exfoliation reveals more youthful and hydrated skin by sloughing off these dead skin cells that create our skin barrier.

Punching these peptides and Exosomes in deeper gets them to living cells. And thereby real improvement can happen.

This is why I love my Mondays:) especially now that summer’s  arrived!!!

Comment “SKIN” for the blog link…it details everything I used in today’s Live found inside the Natural Kaos App.

On Facebook? Here is the blog link: https://www.naturalkaos.com/channel-pro-pen-microneedling-w-power-blue-ghk-nad/

The LIVE began with a quick glycolic peel. While the peel primed my skin, I activated the Exosomes and added the copper peptide and NAD+ serum.

Then, I wiped the glycolic peel off and brushed the exosome serum on my forehead.

I used my Channel Pro stamping microchanneling pen with the 82-pin cartridge. I like how this flower cartridge fits around my nose.

After micro-channeling, I put on a soothing bio-cellulose sheet mask and then my UV shield so I could go out for a Red LED light bed session.

I love that I can treat my face and body simultaneously while I nap.

Then it was time to return home, eat some steak, and then edit this mini day vlog.

And this is what my face looks like 2.5 hours after micro-channeling.
