Summer Skincare Essentials: Protecting and Nourishing Your Body
With the arrival of summer, it's crucial to adapt our skincare routines to the changing weather and protect our bodies from the harsh elements. The combination of increased sun exposure, higher temperatures, and humidity can affect our skin's health and vitality. In this blog post, we’ll explore effective ways to protect and nourish our bodies during the summer months.
- Sun protection: The summer sun can be intense and damaging to our skin. To shield your body from harmful UV rays, it's essential to prioritise sun protection. Look for a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it generously to all exposed areas of your body, including often overlooked areas like the back of your neck, ears, and tops of your feet. Reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.
- Hydration: Proper hydration is key for maintaining healthy skin throughout the summer. Higher temperatures and increased outdoor activities can lead to dehydration, which can make your skin look dull and feel tight. Hydrate from within by drinking plenty of water and incorporating hydrating foods into your diet (we love a refreshing salad in the summer!). Additionally, nourish your body externally by using hydrating body care products like the Beyond Organic Satin Soft Body Lotion, enriched with natural ingredients like shea butter and olive.
- Exfoliation: Exfoliating your body regularly during the summer helps remove dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and more radiant complexion. Consider using a gentle body scrub to slough off dead skin cells and reveal fresh, glowing skin. Remember to exfoliate no more than twice a week to avoid overdoing it.
- Cooling Mists and Toners: To combat the heat and refresh your skin, incorporate cooling mists and toners into your summer skincare routine. Our Organic Soothing Toner helps soothe and hydrate your skin while providing a refreshing sensation. It’s great for sore, sunburnt skin too. Spritz it onto your face and body throughout the day to keep your skin cool, calm, and revitalized.
- Deodorant: Deodorant plays a crucial role in helping us stay fresh and odour-free, especially during the hot summer months. Our Naturally Fresh Crystal Deodorant will gently keep odour under control while providing you with a fresh scent that lasts all day long. It contains aloe vera and witch hazel to soothe any irritation while offering the delicate under-arm area protection and keeping it healthy.
As the summer season heats up, protecting and nourishing our bodies should be a priority in our skincare routines. With the right products and practices, you can keep your body healthy and radiant all summer long.
