Take care of your skin after vacation in these 4 easy steps

Have you been to Greece, Spain, or somewhere else on vacation? It's lovely to stroll in the sun, swim, and enjoy the warm summer days. But after a while, your skin needs some recovery from the heat and saltwater. So when you return to Sweden and your vacation is over, it's time to devote some time to skincare. After exposing your skin to the sun and salt for a few weeks, you can turn to skincare to regain the natural radiance of your skin. Therefore, Under Your Skin has prepared some simple steps to take care of your skin after the vacation and get fresh, sun-kissed, and glowing skin. Keep reading to discover our tips on how to care for your skin after the summer.

Step 1: Use a Gentle Body Wash and Care for Your Skin After Summer

The first step in skincare is, of course, cleansing. Whether you want to take a shower or a long bath after your vacation, you need to use good products that are gentle on your skin. Our tip is to choose all the products you apply to your skin carefully. The first product to choose is a body wash.

It's best to find products that are not only skin-friendly but also environmentally friendly. Using mild products that don't dry out your skin is good for your body, which has already been exposed to the sun and dehydration. An example of a product that is mild and moisturizing is our organic body wash. It contains ingredients such as antioxidants and vitamin C, thistle stem cells, and yuzu extract, giving the skin a nice glow, moisturizing, and not disrupting its pH level. Therefore, it's a perfect product when you want to take care of your skin after the vacation and avoid drying it out further. When choosing a facial cleanser, look for a gentle product that doesn't contain strong and drying ingredients.

Step 2: Exfoliate Your Skin After the Vacation

If you want to take care of your skin after the vacation, there is a crucial step - exfoliation. After your relaxing, warm vacation, it's time to renew the skin, remove all dead skin cells and dirt, clear the pores, and even out your skin tone. You can achieve all of this with the help of a body scrub and a facial exfoliator.

Some people refrain from exfoliation after the vacation because they want to preserve the tan on their skin. But you shouldn't remove it by scrubbing your body. Instead, your skin will get a new radiance and look even better with the help of a body scrub. Make your own DIY scrub or buy one that works well or smells good. The important thing is to exfoliate your body after the summer vacation to regain radiant and soft skin.

Step 3: Moisturize and Soothe Your Skin After the Sun

To keep your skin in good condition after being exposed to the sun's rays, you need to provide extra nourishment to your skin. You can do this by giving it a moisture boost with your favorite lotion. Our organic body lotion has a fantastic blend of natural oils that will provide your skin with the nourishment it needs and boost its radiance without leaving a sticky residue on the body. Since the sun and saltwater dry out your skin, it's essential to take care of your body correctly by restoring its moisture balance. So you can avoid dry skin that looks dull and instead get a glowing, smooth complexion.

If you've sunburned yourself, you need to apply lotion regularly. Our tip is to use products with soothing ingredients such as aloe vera to calm your burned skin.

When it comes to your face, you can use a facial oil to moisturize your skin properly and ensure that you lock in the moisture. This way, your skin will be soft and well-cared-for, and it will get an incredible glow. So feel free to try our Natural Glow Facial Oil to take care of your skin after the vacation.

Step 4: Do a Pedicure and Care for Your Skin After the Vacation

As an extra step when you want to take care of your skin after the vacation, you can take care of your feet. We often forget our feet when taking care of the rest of the body. But our feet are under a lot of pressure every day. Therefore, they deserve a little extra love, at least after your vacation. Our tip is to do a foot bath at home or go to a salon for a pedicure. Here are some tips for the foot treatment at home:

  • Do a foot bath at home: Take a bowl and fill it with warm water. Add coconut oil, almond oil, or essential oils. You can also make a salt bath with olive oil and salt. Soak your feet for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Scrub your feet: To soften your feet even more, our tip is to exfoliate them thoroughly. You can use the same scrub you used for the rest of your body.
  • Nourish your feet with moisturizing products: Don't forget to moisturize your feet after the bath. This way, you can get smooth and beautiful feet even after they have been exposed to many walks in the sun and swims in the sea.

Recover Your Skin After the Vacation

Your skin is exposed to many different factors every day, especially in the summer. Even during the vacation, your skin is affected by many different factors - sun, water, salt, etc. So when you're back home, it's good to devote a little extra time to skincare. To take care of your skin after the vacation, you need to use the right products that are gentle on the skin and that will help your skin recover. Follow our simple tips and get soft, radiant skin after the vacation. And don't forget to use SPF even after your vacation!
