Whether you’re at the beach with family and friends or spending time barbequing, you’ll probably be outdoors having some fun in the sun. To make sure you’re skin is protected, here are some tips!
1. Cover up naturally…We know you’ll be rocking your best red, white and blue attire, but make sure to that your skin is covered up and protected! For your face, accessorize with a hat to shield the sun, and sunglasses for your eye area. For your body, although it may be warm out, opting to wear long sleeved clothing and a swimsuit cover up will give you maximum protection. Most importantly, layer on the protection! Choose a moisturizer, like Biolight™ Brightening Day Protection Cream, that has zinc oxide, a natural sunscreen protector. Opting for natural sunscreen protectors over chemical based sunscreens will help prevent against skin irritation and allergic reactions.
2. Take breaks from the sun… If you’ve been out in the sun for an extended period of time, make sure to take breaks every so often. Not only is this beneficial for your skin and helps prevent against over-exposure, but your body needs a little time to relax as well. Use this time to eat a snack to maintain energy and re-apply your sunscreen to ensure your skin will stay protected.
3. Keep cool … If you’re in the sun all day, it is super important that you keep cool and stay hydrated. To do so, drink plenty of water throughout the day. If your skin starts to feel dry throughout the day, keep a cooling facial mist by your side, like our Algo Mist Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray. Seaweed and Aloe Vera in this spray will feel wonderful on your skin and help to cool you down – perfect to spritz right on when you need a little hydration!
4. Once the party is over… From swimming and being in the sun all day, your body is probably going to be a little bit prune-like, which makes it crucial that you moisturize from head to toe. Our nourishing Vita Cura Triple Action Nutrí Oil made with African Mafural Oil will help seal moisture into your skin and is great for after a long day in the sun. After getting out of the shower, apply it all over your body to soothe and nourish your skin. Plus, this oil provides a golden sheen on the skin, giving you the perfect glow for the fire work show!
