The sun-kissed shores beckon, and with proper skincare, you can unleash your natural radiance while enjoying a day at the beach. Discover the secrets to achieving flawless skin, protecting it from harmful UV rays, and maintaining a healthy glow in our ultimate beach skincare guide. Let's dive in!
Shield Your Skin with SPF:
The golden rule of beach skincare is never underestimate the power of sunscreen. Opt for a broad-spectrum sun cream with an SPF of at least 30 to safeguard your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating. Don't forget to cover often neglected areas like your ears, lips, and the back of your neck.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate:
The sun and salty seawater can dehydrate your skin, leading to dryness and premature aging. Keep your skin plump and radiant by staying hydrated from the inside out. Pack a water bottle and sip regularly throughout the day. Additionally, apply a lightweight, water-based moisturiser before hitting the beach to lock in moisture and create a protective barrier. Bring along our Boosting Face Tonic to maintain moisture and revitalise your skin.
Embrace the Shade:
While basking in the sun can be delightful, don't forget to seek shade whenever possible. Take breaks under an umbrella or beach tent to give your skin a much-needed break from direct sunlight. This reduces the risk of sunburns and decreases the cumulative damage caused by prolonged sun exposure.
Cover Up in Style:
Make a fashion statement while protecting your skin by donning a wide-brimmed hat, oversized sunglasses, and lightweight, breathable clothing. These accessories shield your face and body from harmful UV rays and help prevent sunspots, wrinkles, and other signs of sun damage. Plus, they add a touch of elegance to your beach ensemble.
After-Sun Soothing Ritual:
Even with the best preventive measures, your skin may need some post-sun TLC. After a day at the beach, take a cool shower to lower your body temperature and soothe your skin, try our gentle Fig & Vanilla Body Wash to continue to moisture the skin. Follow up with a gentle, hydrating body oil such as our Sensitive Face & Body Oil to replenish the surface of the skin, restoring moisture and elasticity. Remember, pampering your skin after exposure is as important as protecting it beforehand.
By prioritising sunscreen, hydration, shade, and stylish protection, you can maintain healthy, glowing skin all summer long.
