Summer Body Care: Tips for a glowing skin this summer
Every summer, we all face the same concern – how to protect our skin from being darken by the heat and humidity. To keep your skin radiating and glowing, here are some tips you can follow this season.
1. Use Sunscreen
Use a good sunscreen for your body, as you would be using for your face. Reapply every 2 hour if you plan on spending time under the direct sun, or in the water. If possible, avoid going outside between 12 – 2pm, and always remember to wear long-sleeve shirt and a hat. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your neck and hand, as they are the most-often forgotten parts.
2. Exfoliate your body
Your body sheds skin cells every day, and in the summer, with all the heat and sweats, more dead skin cells can accumulate on your body. If you don't get rid of them, they'll just set in on your skin making you look dull and dry. Use a body scrub, you can choose a safe, natural one like our REN Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish with Moroccan rose extract and sugar, to exfoliate your body once/twice every week.
3. Body mask
After exfoliating, it’s the perfect time to put on a mask. You can mix one from natural ingredients, or use our Ghassoul clay mask. Just put them in warm water and mix until the clay dissolves totally, then put a few drops of your favorite essentials oils – lavender, grapefruit, etc. Use once/twice a week for a clear and bright body skin.
Some people forget to moisturize their body skin, some just don’t like the thick texture of body lotion. But moisturizing is a key for glowing skin. The right moisturizer helps strengthening skin barrier, and the skin becomes more resistant to outer harmful agents. At L’Apothiquaire, you can find fast-absorbing moisturizers that works great for all skin types. You can try the whole range of Erbario body dry oil, designed to deeply moisturize your skin while leaving no residue after applying.
Have fun in the sun with your glowing skin this summer!
