It's officially swimsuit season again, girls! While you’re probably concentrating on getting that perfect beach body, you also shouldn't forget about your skin. The hot weather can bring about all sorts of skin problems that can ruin your beach experience. Here are the top five things you should watch out for:

Dry skin
The high temperatures can suck out all the moisture out of your skin, leaving it dry AF. And unless you're auditioning for a role as a mermaid, scaly legs are not a good look.

The fix: Hydrate! Start off by using a rich moisturizer like Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Lotion, which is clinically proven to make dry skin soft and supple in as little as three weeks. You can also try Vaseline Healthy White Instant Fair Lotion, which has Vitamin B3 to give you that fair, rosy glow faster. Also, don’t forget to drink lots of water!

Sweaty armpits
The most annoying thing about summer? All the sweat—including in our armpits. Just standing outside under the sun for a few minutes can make us sweat buckets! (How much more when we’re commuting to work?)

The fix: Stay fresh all day by using a good antiperspirant! Try Rexona with Motionsense. Its unique technology is designed to keep you smelling fresher with every move so you can raise your arms with confidence all summer long.

Dark underarms
Summer is the best time to flaunt your skin, and what better way to do so than by wearing tank tops and sexy bikinis all season long? However, you'll probably think twice about putting on that pretty halter top if you've got dark underarms. Dyahe, girl.

The fix: If you’re concerned about your dark underarms, it might be time to switch deodorants. Dove's line of whitening antiperspirants promises to lighten the most stubborn underarm dark spots while remaining gentle enough for sensitive skin.

There's no escaping the sun's harsh rays, whether you're at the beach or in the city. Spending just a few minutes outdoors at high noon can instantly make you a couple of shades darker, causing plenty of damage to your skin. Yikes!

The fix: Use sunscreen every day! Products with UVA and UVB protection are essential in this weather. An umbrella that can block UV rays is also a godsend, especially if you're commuting.
