Have you booked a family vacation in a beautiful seaside resort? If so, your skin will require some added protection from the elements – the intense heat, strong sunlight and salty water can all negatively affect your complexion!
Here is our guide to healthy and hydrated skin during the hotter months:
1.USE A HYDRATING BODY CREAM DAILY!
Spending a ton of time in the water and walking around barefoot can both take their toll on your feet and hands! Is is especially important to use a light body cream at the end of the day (preferably after showering) to replenish the moisture from your skin, especially in those sensitive areas that are prone to cracking (elbows, toes, heels, knees).
You can pack one of our incredibly smooth chocolate body creams on your next holiday! Not only do they feel amazing, but they also smell divine!
2. AVOID EXCESSIVE TANNING AND USE SUNSCREEN!
Using sunbeds before your vacation or spending hours upon hours in the sun without adequate protection are two of the most harmful activities for your skin in the long run! Not only does tanning make your skin cells deteriorate faster, but it also raises your chances of developing skin cancer, sun spots, burns and wrinkles!
You can obtain glowing golden skin without the risk of sunburns by using our revolutionary tanning oil – the GOLDEN ELIXIR. Apply, massage into the skin and enjoy the instant results! As an added bonus, it also has SPF30. If you want more pronounced tanning results, combine the oil with our NARUMI tanning cream.
3. AVOID USING TOO MUCH HAND SANITIZER!
Mass-market alcohol-based hand sanitizers are known to impact your skin in various negative ways, especially by removing essential oils and moisture. It is very important to avoid obsessively applying these antibacterial products to your hands, especially during the heat of summer.
4. AVOID USING TOO MUCH MAKEUP!
Using too much makeup during the hotter months can inhibit your skin from properly perspirating. This can lead to black heads, acne or even rashes. We recommend limitting the use of powders, eyeshadows and foundations when the heat rises, especially when relaxing at the beach in the sun! Try a lighter multipurpose alternative to these products, such as our new PORE-flawLESS primer!
It is also vital to never go to sleep with a face covered in dust, sweat and makeup. Use our BI-PHASE ELIXIR to thoroughly remove any unwanted substances from your face right before bedtime! A clean skin is a healthier skin!
5. DON’T FORGET TO HYDRATE!
Always make sure to drink sufficient water during a heatwave! When going on the beach, water should never be kept in a plastic bottle. Instead, opt for a stainless steel or glass bottle. You can also add slices of fruit, green tea or mint leaves for an added dose of freshness and vitamins!
