Wanting to reveal your skin in summer? Don’t forget to remove your unwanted hair in advance. Laser hair removal often takes 15-60 minutes per session according to which part of hair you want to remove and the whole treatment takes 6-10 weeks.

Let water be your best friend
Water is essential to our health, and it can really help to improve our skin conditions. Our skin contains plenty of water and functions as a protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss. According to Atlanta dermatologist Kenneth Ellner, MD, “Dehydration makes [our] skin look more dry and wrinkled, which can be improved with proper hydration.”Also, water can help us feel fresh and wash out toxins inside our body. Therefore, it would be a good idea to carry a water bottle with you or set an alarm clock to remind you of drinking some water every 30 minutes.
Use sunscreen to protect your skin from UV Rays
UV rays can be more harmful in summer than any other time of the year for your skin, causing skin damages and even skin cancers.
