For college students, summer means time back home. And while that means time relaxing back home, seeing friends, and fun in the sun–it also means a lot of energy spent that can take its toll on your body.

And while you still have that youthful exuberance in you, there’s no doubt it can run a debt on your skin too.

So, here are some tips to take care of your skin this summer.

Anti-Aging? Sunscreen–Loads of It

For every anti-aging product out there, you should know that one trumps them all. And that’s sunscreen. Nothing ages you faster than the sun, and sunscreen is the only way to really protect yourself from damaging UV rays.

Maybe Skip the Tan

On that note, you might want to skip the tan — because it’s actually damage to the skin. Not that you should avoid the beach, but maybe don’t go to the tanning salan.

Wash Your Cellphones

This one’s a strange one, but it’s true. All kinds of bacteria gets on your phone from your hands every day. And if you’re prone to acne — well, this can be a life saver.

Put on the Treatment During Your Night Owl Periods

We get it. College students stay up late. If you’re staying up till 3AM — possibly working late on some summer work you should’ve done earlier — then you might as well make the most of it and put on a deep-cleansing mask.

Try Eryfotona Actinica Sunscreen

If you’re putting on sunscreen to protect yourself from UV rays, a great product to protect yourself is Eryfotonoa Actinica. It prevents actinic damage from the sun, preventing early skin aging and skin cancer.
