5 Easy Ways To A Skin Friendly Summer
If your plans to travel this summer include spending time in the sun, check out our top five tips below for protecting your skin + staying safe as you enjoy your time with your loved ones:
While this one seems like a no-brainer, it’s easy to lose track of how much water you’re drinking once you begin your day. While how much water you should drink depends on a lot of internal and external factors, a general tip that we recommend sticking to is to drink just enough water so that your urine is crystal clear. Understand what you need to stay true to your goals; if it helps, invest in tools such as a cute water bottle or simply set a reminder for every couple of hours to ensure that you are drinking enough water to stay adequately hydrated.
Whether you’re hitting the beach or taking a road trip with your friends, don’t forget your SPF! Apart from protecting against sunburn, using SPF reduces the risk of skin cancer, avoids inflammation and hyperpigmentation and prevents the early onset of wrinkles and fine lines. If you’re looking for a great SPF, we love the one from SuperGoop.
Use A Body Oil
While our Body Oil is a great addition to your daily wellness rituals, it is also a fantastic way to prevent dry skin from a day spent in the water (perfect if you’re going to be spending a lot of time at the beach!). We love to apply a generous layer of our Body Oil just before we hit the water; apart from protecting the skin, it also gives you a beautiful all-natural glow.
Eat Fresh + Seasonal Food
The food that we eat has the ability to impact everything from our energy levels to the health of our skin. If you’re travelling to a new city or country, we recommend scoping out the local food + drink scene there; while this is a great way to explore the local culture, it also helps amp up your fresh food and drink intake to keep your energy levels at an optimum and your skin healthy and glowing.
Unwind With Your Favorite Beauty Tool
At the end of a long day, the one thing that we love is a quick massage with our Kansa Wand. The Kansa Wand helps boost the supply of oxygen to the skin and aid in lymphatic drainage, which results in skin that is firmer, brighter and naturally lifted. We recommend chilling the Kansa Wand for a while before using it for an extra cooling experience.
