Summer fun has so many benefits. Relaxation, exercise, re-connecting with friends and family or exploring the great outdoors. All of these things can be revitalizing for both mind and body. But all of that gorgeous outdoor fun can come at a cost to your skin.
Spending a day in the sunshine without adequate shade or sunblock, going on a high speed sail through windy seas, or accidentally tromping through a patch of poison ivy are just a few examples of how summer fun can leave skin feeling itchy, red, or dried out.
