Revamp your beauty and hair routine for summer

Most people can admit to longing for the warm summer months as soon as the leaves start to turn in early fall. While these few months of sun, fun and tans are certainly great, everything that has to do with summertime - going to the beach or the pool and sitting in the sun all day - can cause problems with your skin and hair.

Even though you might use tons of anti aging skincare and hair products to keep your body healthy, you might not be doing enough. Here are a few ways to boost the beauty of your skin and hair as summer starts to wind down.

Limit washing with products
You might stick to a strict cleansing routine in the morning, including washing your face with a cleanser like the Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser, but it might be working against you in the warmer months. According to Real Simple magazine, cleaning your complexion with a product too frequently in the summer can actually strip away certain parts of your skin that help keep it moisturized, which could make your skin look drier than you'd like. 

Luckily, fixing this problem is a cinch. Simply wash your face with water each morning and apply a daily sunscreen afterward for a perfect glow. While you might have a standard sunscreen at home, it's best to use a product made for your face to avoid breakouts and other problems, Discovery Fit & Health reports. Try searching out sunscreen products that are labeled "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic‚Äč," as these won't clog pores.

Rinse and repeat
The sun and salt water might feel great on your skin, but all this exposure to the elements can cause problems with the health of your hair. Issues can get even worse if you spend a lot of time in a pool, as chlorine can dry out and remove natural oils from your locks. 

You can avoid split ends and breakage this month by shampooing less (every other day is best), according to Real Simple. On the same note, rinsing your hair in cool water shortly after you get out of the pool can limit how much chlorine is able to seep into your hair, thus curbing any problems. Avoiding heat-styling tools and repairing your hair once a week with a deep conditioner can also help.
