Summer is a season of sunshine, beach days, and outdoor adventures. While it’s the perfect time to bask in the warmth, it also means taking extra care of your skin and body. The increased exposure to sun, heat, and humidity can take a toll, so it’s essential to have a well-rounded summer skincare and body care routine. Here’s your ultimate guide to staying fresh, hydrated, and glowing all summer.

1. Sunscreen: Your Best Friend

The cornerstone of any summer skincare routine is sunscreen. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect against UVA and UVB rays. Also, consider marine life and choose a reef-safe sunscreen. Apply generously 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every hour and a half to two hours, especially if swimming or sweating.

2. Hydration is Key

Summer heat can lead to dehydration, affecting your skin and overall health. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated. Incorporate hydrating skincare products like lightweight gels and water-based moisturizers to maintain your skin’s moisture balance.

4. Exfoliation

Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, allowing your skin to breathe and preventing clogged pores. However, be gentle and avoid over-exfoliating, which can irritate the skin.
