Summer has arrived and the holidays are fast approaching, an opportunity to enjoy the sun, the beach and many outdoor activities.
This also means that our skin is exposed to different and sometimes aggressive conditions . It is therefore essential to prepare your skin for summer in order to keep it glowing , healthy and well protected. We wanted to share with you some valuable tips for properly preparing your skin before the arrival of the hot summer days.
Hydrate from the inside out: Healthy skin starts with adequate hydration. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day to keep your skin well hydrated. Water helps flush out toxins, prevent dehydration, and maintain your skin's elasticity. Also consume water-rich foods such as cucumbers, watermelons, and citrus fruits to get additional hydration.
Exfoliate your skin : Prepare your skin by cleansing it deeply to remove accumulated impurities. Use a gentle cleansing gel suited to your skin type, morning and evening. Then, exfoliate your skin once or twice a week, with a gentle natural scrub to remove dead cells and promote cell renewal. This will allow your skin to better absorb the skincare products you use later. Don't forget to prepare your body for tanning by applying a natural sweet body scrub all over your body.
Protect yourself from the sun: One of the most crucial steps in preparing your skin for summer is protecting it from the sun's harmful rays. Apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30, even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hours. Also opt for a refreshing hydrating water to apply between swims as well as a nourishing protective oil for your hair.
Moisturize your skin with suitable products : Use skincare products adapted to your skin type to prepare it for summer. Choose a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer that won't clog pores. For deep hydration, consider using a vitamin C serum for antioxidant protection and organic rose water to soothe and calm skin after sun exposure.
Eat a healthy diet: Your diet plays a vital role in the health of your skin. Opt for a balanced diet, rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Foods like carrots, tomatoes, berries, almonds and oily fish are particularly beneficial for your skin. Avoid processed foods high in sugar and saturated fat, which can make skin problems worse.
- Treat yourself! : Summer is also the ideal season to let go, recharge your batteries and have fun. Take advantage of the sun to stock up on vitamin D and achieve a summery tan using a natural carrot tanning oil .
Preparing your skin for summer is essential to maintaining its glow and health during this sunny season. Remember to take care of yourself, stay hydrated and make the most of your vacation.
