General skincare tips for men and women are relatively vague and can consist of things as simple as getting the right amount of sleep, keeping stress to a minimum, hypoallergenic makeup and very little of it, eating right (antioxidants and omega’s 6 and 3), keeping your skin hydrated, washing your face on a regular basis with mild soaps and warm water (not scalding hot), avoiding petroleums which clog your pores and more.
The Weather in Jacksonville
‘Oh the weather outside is frightful’ is not something you’re going to hear in Jacksonville unless it’s a hurricane. That said, the sun can be as harmful to your skin as a hurricane is to the land. Age is hard enough on our faces; do we really need to subject it to tanning as well? Sunscreen is the first and foremost product in any skincare regime. It should be applied before makeup and any time you will be stepping out the door in Jacksonville. The average temperature in Jacksonville during the warmer months can range between 65° for a low and 92° F for a high. Even in Jacksonville’s cooler months, and I use the word ‘cooler’ loosely, lows only bottom out at about 41° F and highs can reach all the way up to 73°. That’s not winter, that’s a mild summer where I come from (Wisconsin).
Whereas humidity might keep things moist (soggy) in theory, it tends to affect your skin in a manner that makes it sweat. Sweating releases toxins and oils from our system. Now that’s good in that toxins need to get out. Moisture however needs to stay within our skin. And oil… We all know what oil can do to our skin. Keeping your face clean will go a long way toward fighting against the oils released from your skin.
Jacksonville sun lovers: A tan may give your skin a nice healthy glow but it can also lead to skin cancer, drying out of your skin, wrinkles, a lack of hydration, worsening of age spots or other skin conditions, and a lack of elasticity. Get it?
