Summer Skincare

The summer is here and it’s time to get your skincare routine in check. I’m going to share with you some of my favourite tips and tricks that will have you looking fabulous all summer long.

Don’t forget to exfoliate

Exfoliating is an important part of your skincare routine, and it’s something you should be doing every once in a while. It helps slough off dead skin cells and other surface debris to reveal smoother, more radiant skin underneath. Exfoliation can also help with acne by allowing your cleanser to penetrate deeper into the pores where bacteria tend to build up.

Here are some guidelines for exfoliating:

  • Exfoliate no more than once or twice per week—you don’t want to overdo it!
  • Use a gentle product that won’t leave behind any abrasive residue on the face.
  • You can use either manual or chemical exfoliants like scrubs or acids, but I prefer the latter because they’re gentler on my sensitive skin type. They also have less potential for irritation due to their lower concentrations—most scrubs contain upwards of 70% microbeads made out of plastic!

SPF is Important

SPF is not just for summer. It’s important to wear SPF year-round, even if you’re not spending time in the sun, because UV rays can penetrate through clouds and windows. And it’s especially important to use SPF on your face and body, since those areas are more sensitive than other parts of your body.

You should also make sure that the sunscreen you’re using has been tested by an independent laboratory for effectiveness in blocking both UVA and UVB rays, as well as any additional ingredient claims (like water resistance). Sunscreen with a high SPF number may seem like it would provide more protection against harmful rays than a lower-number product—but really, they’re all equally effective when applied correctly with proper frequency.

And of course it should be reef safe too! More on that in our next blog!

Try a green juice fast

A juice fast can help you cleanse your body of toxins and give it a much-needed break from the regular stressors of life. A juice fast will also help to shed excess water weight, which can be beneficial if you’re looking to lose some extra pounds. It’s important to note that a juice fast should not replace any other methods of weight loss or detoxification, but rather serve as an additional tool in your arsenal. If you’re considering trying this technique out for yourself, here are some tips:

  • Be sure that the juicer you choose is able to extract all of the nutrients from leafy greens and other hard-to-juice fruits and vegetables (like carrots). If not, your body won’t be able to get all the benefits from eating only juices.
  • Find recipes online or make up your own! The possibilities are endless when it comes to juicing recipes – just think about what flavours would work well together and experiment with different combinations until you find something that tastes good enough for everyday consumption!

Use Vitamin C Serum in the morning

You should definitely be using vitamin C serum in the morning. It’s a great way to get skin-beneficial ingredients into your routine without having to use multiple products or spend a lot of money.

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation, lighten dark spots, improve acne and even help with wrinkles! The antioxidant also helps prevent sun damage (which can lead to premature aging) and improves skin texture.

Try a new routine for summer

You can try a new routine for summer by using one of these masks:

  • A clay mask will draw out impurities and excess oil from your skin. It will also help to clear up breakouts, soothe inflammation, and prevent future blemishes from forming.
  • A hydrating mask is great for anyone whose skin tends to get dry in the summertime. It’ll infuse your face with moisture that lasts all day long—no need to worry about reapplying moisturiser every few hours!
  • A charcoal mask is excellent for detoxing the skin without leaving it feeling tight or over-sensitized afterward. The activated charcoal helps detoxify the complexion while also absorbing excess oils so you don’t have to worry about looking shiny after applying this mask!
  • Vitamin C is an antioxidant powerhouse that can be used in skincare products like serums or lotions but also as an ingredient in facial masks.

Get plenty of sleep and stay hydrated

The importance of sleep is often overlooked when people are busy, but your skin and body need it to function at their best. Skimp on sleep and you’ll end up with puffy eyes, bags under your eyes and dark circles. The right amount of rest (7-9 hours each night) helps you maintain healthy blood sugar levels and keeps your immune system strong so that you don’t get sick as often or as quickly when you do catch something.

Sleep also plays an important role in helping skin stay hydrated by allowing the natural moisturisers in our bodies (like water) to regenerate overnight while we’re snoozing. If we’re not getting enough quality shut-eye then our skin begins to show signs of dehydration; our lips may feel dry or cracked; our hands might become rough; and if we have acne then breakouts could become more frequent because of lack of moisture in the pores.

In addition to getting plenty of sleep every night (I know this can be tough since we all have full schedules), make sure that you’re staying hydrated throughout the day as well! Drinking 2 litres per day will help keep your body functioning smoothly without any unnecessary sluggishness that comes from dehydration…and if drinking straight from a bottle isn’t doing it for ya then try adding some ice cubes to give things some flavour!

Getting your routine down

If you can get your skincare routine down and protect your skin from harsh sun rays, you will have beautiful glowing skin all summer long.

It’s no secret that summer skincare is important to take care of your skin. You want to be able to wear short sleeves and cute dresses all spring, right? With the right products and practices in place, you can have beautiful glowing skin all summer long.

Summer skincare is different from winter skincare because there are fewer moisturising products on the market. Many people use body butters or lotions in the winter since their skin gets very dry from being exposed to heat vents or radiators for long periods of time. In warmer months, however, those same people won’t need these heavy creams because they aren’t going to be sitting around all day at home with a blanket wrapped around them! Instead of focusing on moisturising your face and body during summertime, focus more on sun protection and preventing wrinkles/aging signs.

The best way to protect your skin in the summer is to use sunscreen on a regular basis and get plenty of rest. Try these tips for keeping your skin hydrated and healthy this summer, and remember that all good things take time! Don’t forget about yourself during those hot months when everyone else seems to be
