With summer comes more long days in the sun and exposure to intense, harmful UV rays. Before you expose your skin, it's essential to take the right steps to stay protected from the hot summer air and sweltering sun!
To help you out before you head out and catch some rays, we've created this quick list of our top 3 summer skincare tips including hydration, exfoliation, and protection.
It's vital to stay hydrated all summer long not only for your health but for your skin too. During long days in the sun, you want to make sure that you are drinking water to keep your energy up and your skin looking healthy and plump.
Aside from water, you want to make sure you are hydrating your skin in other ways. Moisturizers, masks, and serums should be part of your summer skincare routine; so that you can keep that summer glow while the wrinkles and sun damage stays at bay.
Summertime is a great time to try out our O3 Organic Rejuvenating Serum. This light serum will help hydrate and rejuvenate your skin while also keeping it protected from environmental pollutants. Ideal for treating your skin after spending time in the sun.
With extended sun exposure and high UV rays all summer, your skin will be begging for regular exfoliation. The process of exfoliation removes dead skin debris, which prevents congestion and improves hydration from your products. Follow up your exfoliation with a rich, soothing moisturizer.
Regular exfoliation also allows your makeup to go on smoother and other products to be absorbed better.
For a soothing, repairing exfoliation on your face, we suggest trying our O6 Organic Facial Scrub. The O6 Organic Facial Scrub is made with pure, organic ingredients that provide your skin with antioxidant protection, reduced appearance of wrinkles, and smooth, soft skin.
Your hydrated, exfoliated skin needs protection in the summer. This means finding a great, everyday sunscreen for your skin type. Apply in the morning as part of your daily skin routine, and if you're going to be out for a while, don't forget to pack it in your bag and reapply every 2 hours! To find the most natural options head to Think Dirty or EWG website/app on your phone.
We also suggest wearing a wide brim hat when you're out and about. Keeping your face and décolletage shielded from the sun will keep the early sign of aging and sun damage at a distance.
