Summer is with us and we couldn’t be more excited as we spend out weekend outdoors in the sun.
I’m sure you’re all planning your escape to a sunny seaside town, catching up with old friends, planning pool parties and sunset drinks. In the midst of all the fun we love and enjoy, don’t leave your skin routine behind. No one likes to be neglected more than your skin, especially during summer, I mean, don’t you want to show off your best self?
You’ve got your winter skin routine under control, now fortunately summer doesn’t require that many overwhelming changes, so don’t stress. We’ll just tweak a couple of things and get you looking your best summer self.
Protect Your Skin From The Sun
So the first one is pretty obvious, sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! Cannot say this enough times, do not underestimate its functionality, it’s probably the most important protector for your skin. No matter what time of year it is, winter, summer, make sure you’re applying it daily. Begin with a lotion or moisturiser of your choice and end with SPF lotion as your last step. It’s essential!
Exfoliate for Softness
You know, that smooth and buttery feeling after you wash your face with a fresh rinse of water. Exfoliating is definitely something to do all year round, even more so during summer months. It gets rid of dead cells and dry skin that leaves you with a glowing finish. Salt or sugar base scrubs do the job well, but pay attention to be extra delicate and rub your skin very gently when applying on your face. And for the rest of your body? Try out our hydrating CBD Coffee Body Scrub, delicious!
The Lighter the Better
The worst thing during summer is applying those heavy and thick body lotions. Try HuGG’s Gym Fit Cream with subtle scents of lemon to give your legs a perfect glow without feeling thick and heavy. Lighter formulas with humectants and emollients will also feel better on the skin.
Take a break from Makeup
Once you get a nice tan, you can say bye to heavy foundation and stick to lightweight makeup that often feels more comfortable. Reach out for oil-free formulas that feel more breathable on the skin.
Stay Hydrate from The Inside Out
We all know that drinking water is a must as temperatures rise. It’s pretty easy to forget the amount of water we consume per day, but pay extra attention as it’s vital for health and skin.
Other than water, fruits such as watermelon, apricots and melon are a fresh and delicious snack to have by the beach and contain some of the highest water content in them.
So long story short, say bye to your heavy products, focus on your skin, keep healthy, keep hydrated, and protect yourself with sunscreen. It’s all way easier than you think, sooner you start sooner you’ll see optimizing results.
