It is no secret, the sun can be hot and brutal in the summer months. Your skin may not dry out, but there are other factors at work that can cause havoc to your complexion.

With talk of six-packs around the corner, it’s time to discuss the two most important steps to proper skincare in the upcoming hot summer months: moisture and sunscreen.
You wouldn’t go a day without drinking water, would you? Well, moisturizer is like water for the skin, keeping it hydrated, healthy, and young. And no, those brews you had with the bros at happy hour don’t count. With age and sun damage, skin sags, loses its elasticity, and begins to form wrinkles. Heat dries out skin, enunciating the look of fine lines and wrinkles, so it’s important to keep yourself and your skin hydrated year-round. Moisturizer plumps skin giving it the hydration it needs, and you the confidence of a fresh face.
The biggest defense against premature aging and other skin damage is SPF. Dermatologists recommend applying a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF to protect the skin against its dangerous UV rays and radicals. Although the signs of damage may not be apparent while you’re young in your 20s and 30s, they will be later. Luckily, with our skincare you don’t need to worry about both steps. We’ve got you covered with our Moisturizer: Hydrator + SPF30+ that gives you both benefits of a moisturizer and sunscreen in one. Apply in the morning and at night, and throughout the day if you’re getting lots of sun.
The summer has come and gone and that means time for dropping temperatures and changing seasons. While the fall might be beautiful with the changing leaves and first hints of winter, your skin might not enjoy the change as much as your eyes. The changing temperatures can suck all of the moisture out of your skin so make sure you take these steps to combat any damage that may come your way.
1. Shower in Warm Water
Hot water actually strips the skin of moisture. Due to this, change your shower situation for fall a bit. Everyone loves to bathe in a hot bath on a cold fall day, but try to limit your time in the shower to less then 10 minutes. Bring the temperature down to warm and with a limited shower time you will be taking crucial steps to helping your body retain moisture.
2. Daily Moisturizer
You still need to keep using that daily moisturizer from summer. Just because the temperatures have dipped a bit does not mean that the harmful UV rays have gone anywhere... Make sure the moisturizer you use is formulated to hydrate and restore moisture to the skin. Also make sure you choose one with an SPF30 boost to protect against aging and skin damage due to the sun. Game Day's uses Pear Cactus Extract to deliver moisture to the skin and lock in in. Buy Now.
3. Dealing with Chapped Lips
As the temperature drops, your lips will start to show signs of drying again. Chapped lips are uncomfortable and can have a drastic negative effect on your appearance if they start pealing. Additionally no one wants to be kissed by someone with chapped lips. Choose a natural lip balm with flavor and boosted with SPF. The flavor will make if "fun" to use and the SPF boost will protect some of the thinnest exposed skin on your body. Game Day's is made with natural beeswax and natural mint flavoring then boosted with SPF15. Buy Now.
4. Drink more Water
Because the cold dehydrates you faster, skip the caffeinated drinks such as soda and coffee which can have a diuretic effect on the body and rob it of its moisture. Drink more water and juice to maintain fluids in your body.
Just because the AC is on and your not feeling like your melting doesn't mean that your aren't! UV Exposure from the sun is an absolute menace to drivers, and many do not even know. No matter what season it is, you simply need to take steps to protect yourself. Dermatologists say that the reason taxi drivers age so fast is because they are in their car all day. Additionally, countries that drive on the left side of the car have higher skin-cancer rates on the left while it is a mirror opposite for countries that drive on the right. The facts are there and are hard to argue.
1. Driving Gloves
It might sound a bit weird, but your hands are right there front and center. Even if you have SPF on them, there is simply nothing better then completely covering up with some gloves. In the winter they will double to keep you warm, in the summer you will look like a boss, plain and simple. Make sure that they are leather and will allow you to grip the wheel. You are sure to turn heads and protect yourself. Check out these from Kent and Curwen. ($245)
2. High-Performance SPF Moisturizer
You simply cannot ignore it. Cover up with an SPF boosted moisturizer that you keep in your car. It will greatly hydrate your skin and increase your skin health, but you will also get the crucial UV protection that you need. Choose a minimum of SPF15 with a "chalky finish" and cover up from hands to ears, neck and face. Game Day's goes on non-greasy and is boosted with SPF30+. ($32)
You'll have trouble driving without them at times so there should be a pair in your car for glare safety. That same glare though is also focusing straight into your eyes. You should have a pair of polarized sunglasses in your car and you need to use them. Just like skincare, if you try to be cheap the product will actually do more harm then good. The Tom Ford Franklin Aviators are the perfect sunglasses for Fall 2014. ($360)
4. Wear a Hat
This is especially important if you have thinning hair or have a sunroof or convertible. Your head will be exposed to the sun and you know that that can only mean one thing. Cover up with a hat and don't risk sunburn or skin cancer. This Lewis Hamilton Mercedes Petronas F1 Cap is the perfect play. ($40)
The Surgeon General's newest warning is directed straight at skin-cancer, particularly from UV exposure. Unlike cigarettes where you can't just kick the habit, the sun poses a threat every day. How can you take the necessary steps to protect your skin from the sun? Just follow these 5 tips below and you will be well on your way.
1. Start the Day with an SPF Boosted Moisturizer
Before you leave the house every day, you must make it a part of your morning routine to cover up with a high-performance, SPF boosted moisturizer. Pay special attention to your face, ears and back of the neck as these will be exposed all day. If you are wearing short sleeves throw some on your arms too. The moisturizer will help to restore skin health and make it appear rejuvenated while the SPF boost will provide critical protection. Try the Moisturizer: Hydrator + SPF30+ from Game Day ($32).
2. Sunglasses are ESSENTIAL
They look cool and protect you from the sun. Why would you leave the house in the morning without them? The sun can be just as harmful to your eyes as your skin so choosing a polarized pair and wearing them when the sun is out will be greatly beneficial to your long term eyesight. Damage can be expensive to fix or even irreversible, so why risk it. The Baron by Dita is a great looking pair of sunglasses that provide critical protection ($550).
3. Don't forget your lips
Your lips have some of the thinnest skin on your body and no clothes to cover them, so they can pose a major health risk in terms of sun damage. You should apply an SPF boosted Lip Balm as needed daily to ensure protection from sun damage. Anything over SPF 15 should be good but make sure if you are outside for long periods to reapply. Game Day's Mint Lip Balm + SPF15 is a great way to protect your lips and enjoy a nice minty burst ($5).
