Natural Beauty Tips to Prepare Summer Skin Now
We’re only just seeing the first, early signs of spring, but it’s time to start preparing your skin for the summer already. For lots of us, holiday plans for the rest of the year are in motion, and we’re already dreaming of long hot days on the beach.
Everyone wants to feel body confident on holiday and, while we all define this differently, having smooth, glowing skin can go a long way to helping you to feel great in your body, whether you’ll be spending your holiday on the beach, lounging by a pool or exploring a new city for the first time.
For summer skin that looks and feels gorgeous, you need to implement a nourishing skincare regime as early on as possible; even if days where you’ll be in vest-style tops with bare legs and sandals feel like a long way off, you need to nurture your skin in advance for the smooth, clear summer skin you long for.
Start Wearing Sunscreen Now
You’ll need to wear more sunscreen than usual when you’re on holiday, but you should wear it throughout the rest of the year too, as this will keep your skin as well-protected as possible from the effects of the sun.
Many sun lotions contain moisturising ingredients, which could benefit your skin all year round, so start incorporating sunscreen into your daily skincare routine now, and your skin should be properly protected and feel beautifully moisturised in time for your holidays.
Never underestimate the power of staying hydrated for keeping your skin looking and feeling its best. Eight glasses is the recommended amount of water to drink each day, to keep you healthy inside and outside.
Skin can become dry if you’re not properly hydrated, which could affect your confidence in the sun. Don’t let this be the case, and increase your water intake well ahead of your holiday, as well as making sure you’re moisturising your skin daily for extra hydration too.
Sea kelp-based skincare products are brilliant for hydrating your skin. At Natural Beauty Online, we stock the Dermikelp® collection, which features an ingredient known as CEM-K, a concentrated form of ecklonia maxima sea kelp.
This kelp is naturally rich in nutrients that are nourishing, hydrating and soothing for skin. In fact, the concentrated liquid included in the Dermikelp® formula has been dermatologically tested and proven to be sensitive to skin.
The Dermikelp® Body Conditioning Collection features the Dermikelp® Nourishing Moisturising Lotion, which is suitable for using every day in the run-up to your summer holiday to keep your skin feeling smoothed, hydrated and nourished.
Cleanse for Clear Skin
The Dermikelp® Body Conditioning Collection also includes the Dermikelp® Foaming Facial Cleanser and the Dermikelp® Gentle Cleansing Body Wash to thoroughly cleanse your skin with the natural nutrients from the sea kelp they contain.
Cleansing your skin every day is important to wash away dirt, bacteria and excess oil, which could help to keep spots at bay, helping you achieve clear skin in time for summer.
If you get spots regularly, think about your diet too, as foods with a high-fat content could exacerbate them and leave your skin feeling extra oily and greasy. In contrast, fresh fruits and vegetables naturally have a high water content, which can help to provide your skin with extra hydration.
Start Looking After Your Hair Too
It’s not just your skin that needs some extra attention ahead of your summer holiday - you should make sure you’re looking after your hair too. The Dermikelp® Complete Hair Care Collection, available at Natural Beauty Online, contains sustainably sourced sea kelp-based products to help cleanse and replenish your hair, and soothe your scalp.
A nourished scalp can do wonders for your hair and treating it with nutrient-rich sea kelp can help you to enrich it with important natural minerals for shinier, stronger, healthier-looking hair - exactly what you need before spending time swimming in the sea or in intense heat.
Always wear a hat while you’re away to protect your hair further and take Dermikelp® in your suitcase so you can carry on nourishing your hair on holiday.
