As we near the end of summer, your skin might be appearing and feeling a little parched. All that time in the sun and salt water can dehydrate the skin, while sunburn brings its own problems.

But there are some simple things you can do to enhance the health of your skin as the cooler days arrive.

Lip service

While winter is often the cause of dry cracked lips, summer can be a curse too. Be sure to always slather your kisser in a moisturizing lip balm combined with a high SPF.

Scrub up

Throughout the season, dead skin cells are likely to collect on the skin's surface. This dries and dulls the dermis, while sunscreen and lotions also build-up. Get your body back to a healthy glow by scrubbing with an exfoliator daily. It doesn't have to be an expensive product; some Epsom salts with essential oil or ground coffee will provide an invigorating shower session and provide the best surface for your moisturizer.

Screen the sun

It should go without saying that sunscreen is essential every day in Australia even if you don't plan to spend long outdoors. While spending a short time in the sun is essential for avoiding a vitamin D deficiency, you should still slather yourself in a broad-spectrum high SPF sunscreen the higher the better. Choose SPF makeups and tints too, so you're always covered. And remember to add other sun protection measures a hat, sunglasses, and long loose clothing as much as possible. You'll keep your skin moisturized and reduce your risk of skin cancers and an aged appearance later in life.

Drink up

Drinking plenty of fresh water is essential to healthy skin year-round (plus it benefits your entire body).

And while you're drinking down, give your skin a drink with an enriching moisturizer. Apply it in the mornings and evenings to plump and hydrate the skin, and repair any damage from sun and salt exposure.
