There is a lot that goes into planning your Spring Break in Miami, FL. If you are travelling, you need to plan where to stay to have the best access to the beaches, restaurants and shops that you want to visit. Whether you are a visitor or a local, you are probably also concerned with picking out the best bathing suits for the beach and choosing outfits that will be perfect for wearing around the city and as you enjoy the Miami nightlife.
At Bardisa Medical Center we know how important it is to also have a plan for your skincare while you are on Spring Break in Miami, FL. Read on for a few tips on how to maintain proper skincare while you enjoy some fun in the Miami sun.
When you’re out in the sun, it’s important to remember to also protect your lips. Make sure to have some lip balm on hand that contains SPF and apply it liberally while you’re out on the beach.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation you should reapply your sunscreen every two hours. If you will be in the water, be sure to still reapply every two hours as well as any time you get out of the water and towel off.
You do not want to end up neglecting your sunscreen reapply every couple of hours because you’re worried about messing up your make-up. You also probably don’t want to bother with touching up make-up with each sunscreen application, so it’s best to skip your makeup routine if you’re spending the day on the beach.
If properly applied and reapplied, sunscreen goes a long way in protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. However, if you will be out in the sun during the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. you need more than just sunscreen to properly protect your skin. Make sure you bring a beach umbrella along so you can make your own shade while you’re out on the beach.
Be sure to wear your UV blocking sunglasses when you are out and about in sunny Miami. Good sunglasses help protect not only your eyes themselves but also the sensitive skin around your eyes. While you’re throwing on some shades, be sure to wear a broad brimmed hat to help shade your face and shoulders.
OK, so we know you are going to be on the beach and the beach means bathing suits but consider using a rash guard when you are on the water or a coverup if you’re walking on the beach. Covering your skin when possible will help protect you from overexposure to the sun and sunburn.
Be sure that you don’t forego your usual skincare routine while on vacation in Miami, and instead, amp it up with extra moisturizer. Moisturizer can help protect your skin from the drying effects of the sun and you will need extra especially if, despite your careful efforts, you end up with a sunburn.
