Skincare Tips For The Summer

Protect your skin from the sun.

We all love the sun during summer. Sure, yes, we do love bidding gloomy and cold weather goodbye, and we do love welcoming the outdoorsy season of brightness. But does our skin love the sun too? Not necessarily. Spending a lot of time out in the blazing summer sun can be quite harsh on our skin. The sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays have been known to contribute to skin cancer. Overexposure to the sun can also cause the skin to develop wrinkles. Invest in a good sunscreen and if you are going to be hitting the beach, applying waterproof sunscreen, before making contact with water, is essential. The Vitamin A Amahlia Hat is not just stylish and sexy but will protect your face from the direct rays of the sun and prevent premature aging.

Don’t forget to protect your eyes from the damaging rays of the sun too. Sunglasses are not just a great fashion accessory, but they are a great looking guard for our eyes. Check the uber-stylish  AJ Morgan Eyewear Topsy Green Chevron Sunglasses.

The three-step regimen.

Every girl knows the cleanse-exfoliate-mask routine, and yet many of us fail to follow it. The importance of this routine cannot be stated enough. The daily routine consists of daily cleaning your skin of all the dirt, grime and oiliness caused during summer, exfoliating using a good quality face scrub at least 2 – 3 times a week and applying a face mask suitable for your skin type at least once a week. Make this simple regimen a habit and it will go a long way towards keeping you beautiful.

Hydrate yourself

Summer is ideal for wading into the sea or pool, but it is also important to hydrate yourself from within and not just outside. Replenish the lost nutrients by increasing the intake of water and fresh juice. Let the liquids cleanse you from within. Cut down on caffeine as it will only contribute to your dehydration. 

Allergic to sunscreen? Try rashguard bikini

The name says it all. Try the lovely Seafolly Coast to Coast Cropped Rash Guard Top and Bottom set, and do not miss out on a chance to make your best this surfing season. It will protect your arms from the harmful rays of the sun as well as keep you from developing a rash due to chlorine in the water.


Wax, not shave

Is hair removal a part of the skin-care routine? Absolutely. We’ll tell you why. We all know that shaving causes in-grown, uneven and thicker hair that grows out faster than it does through waxing. Now, would anyone on a vacation, want a dark stubble growing on their arms? A clean look is a prerequisite to your summer swimwear days.  Hyperpigmentation can be caused by shaving.  It is commonly noticed on underarms after using a razor. Our advice: ditch the razor and go in for the wax which may be painful but will be worth it. Flaunt the Vitamin A Eco Black Neutra Bandeau Bikini when you have completed this task.
