Summertime can be enjoyable, but it can also be brutal to the skin due to unbearable heat, sweating and lack of hydrating skincare products. To have the perfect hot girl summer, it first starts with keeping your skin moisturized and nourished.
According to UCLA Health, hydration is good for body health, temperature, brain function and more. So there’s no better way to give your body that extra love than with proper skincare.
“Approximately 60% of our body is made up of water,” says Sarah Adler, MS, RD, a performance dietitian with UCLA Health Sports Performance. “So we need to make sure we’re replenishing our losses, especially with increased sweating in the summer.”
