Summer is here, and we're ready to soak up the sun and spend our days outdoors. However, even though we look forward to feeling the sun on our skin after so many cold months, we must remember that sun rays can be dangerous for our skin. Therefore, we must protect and care for our skin to avoid sun damage. Additionally, our skin is affected by several external factors in the summer - the sun, the sea, humidity, etc. As a result, we often experience dry skin in the summer, and no one likes that. So if you want to avoid dry and sunburned skin this summer, keep reading to learn our best tips.
Protect Your Skin in Summer to Avoid Sun Damage and Sunburned Skin
First and foremost, you need to ensure that your skin is protected from the sun's harmful rays. This means that you must remember to use sunscreen every day. Sunscreen protects your skin from sunburn, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin cancer. Our advice is to use at least SPF 30, but preferably SPF 50 when you are out in the sun. If you spend the entire day in the sun, make sure to reapply SPF every two to three hours. And forget that common myth that you can't get a tan if you use sunscreen - you can!
P.S. Summertime isn't the only time you should use sunscreen - you should use it year-round. However, the sun is strongest and most dangerous in the summer, so now it's extra important to protect your skin.
Regularly Moisturize to Avoid Dry Skin in the Summer Heat
Spending days at the beach is so much fun, but the sun and saltwater can take a toll on the skin. As a consequence, your skin may eventually feel dry and tight. Fortunately, there's a simple way to help your skin stay plump and fresh. You just need to start taking extra care of your skin and don't forget to moisturize it.
To avoid dry skin in the sun, make sure to regularly moisturize your body. We often forget that our entire body needs proper skincare, not just our face. So, this summer, we recommend that you start applying lotion to your entire body every day. This is especially important if you have dry skin after sunburn.
Our tip is to use a lotion with fantastic, natural ingredients, and we highly recommend our Organic Body Lotion. It moisturizes the skin, gives you a nice glow, and smells delightful. Plus, it won't leave a sticky residue on your skin, making it excellent for hot summer days.
When it comes to your face, you can take it a step further and start using a nourishing facial oil after your moisturizer. Check out our Natural Glow Facial Oil, which provides nourishment, soothes, and protects the skin. It's one of our bestsellers for a good reason!
Using moisturizing face masks is a great way to give your skin a moisture boost and provide deep nourishment. So we recommend using some lovely sheet masks or regular masks with amazing, hydrating ingredients. Depending on how dry your skin is, you can use them once or twice a week.
Avoid Drying Products If You Want to Prevent Dry Skin in the Summer
These days, many products contain strong and even harmful ingredients. From synthetic fragrances to unnecessary chemicals that can dry out the skin. So if you experience dry and sunburned skin, the last thing you need is to use products that further dry out your skin.
To take care of your skin in the sun and keep it radiant and plump, you should carefully choose the products you use. Avoid products with strong, drying chemicals. This applies to all your products, starting with body wash. We recommend starting your skincare routine with a good, gentle body wash. For example, our Organic Body Wash contains amazing ingredients that clean and nourish your skin without making it feel dry. Moreover, it has our signature citrus scent that smells divine. It's definitely worth trying if you want to avoid dry skin in the summer.
Exfoliate Once a Week to Keep Your Skin Fresh and Glowing
Exfoliation is an important step regardless of your skin type. People with oilier skin benefit from regular exfoliation as it prevents clogged pores. But even if you have dry skin, skin exfoliation will give you fantastic results. Using AHA acids helps you get rid of dead skin cells, stimulates faster skin turnover, and gives your skin a beautiful glow, preventing it from looking dull.
However, you should be careful with exfoliation. Firstly, you should be considerate when choosing what type of exfoliation you use. We recommend using a chemical exfoliation on the face. But don't overdo it - exfoliate once a week. Exfoliating too often can dry out your skin. When it comes to your body, you can use our Body Treatment Scrub and scrub your body once or twice a week. Make sure to nourish your skin with a good lotion afterward.
P.S. If you have sun damaged and sunburned skin, wait for your skin to recover before exfoliating.
