How to prepare your skin for the beach vacay?
Skincare routines always go out the window when you’re lounging by the pool or enjoying the salty air, but let me tell you: there is some serious stress placed on your skin when it’s in scorching heat for more than a day, under a blazing sun, and with tons of salty ocean water streaming over it.
If you don’t want your trip ruined by being distracted by sunburns or other skin care-related problems, there are a few things you can do to prepare your skin for a beach vacay!
Step 1: Prep your skin before you step out.
No matter what your skin type is (normal, oily, or dry), your main goal while on vacation should be to keep your skin hydrated. Your skin may also be extra sensitive and you might notice it getting drier as you spend more time in the sun.
Remember: before slathering on that SPF, you want to make sure your skin is prepped. Take a lukewarm shower. And then reach for a good moisturiser or a serum to protect the most exposed parts of your body.
Step 2: Make Sunscreen a Habit
It is not going to be easy to keep up with a new skincare routine just for a vacation. So make it a habit. Sunscreen is important for daily use and it is crucial for a beach vacation.
Apply sunscreen (SPF at least 30) to cover all exposed parts of your body before you step out.
Give special attention to your lips. Extreme heat can also dry out your lips and cause them to chap. Carry a good hydrating lip balm or Vaseline to protect them.
Step 3: Switch your Moisturiser
If you don’t live in a tropical climate, chances are your regular moisturiser is not going to be very helpful on your beach summer vacation. Switch to a water-based or aloe vera-based moisturiser for that extra hydration and cooling your skin requires. Consult with a dermatologist to help determine which one suits best for your skin type.
Step 4: Give a good scrub!
After your day out in the sun by the beach, salty air in your face with all the layers of sunscreen, your skin is bound to look dull and dry. It is time to give a good scrub and remove all the grim off your face and body before you hit the sack.
Use gentle exfoliators and body scrubs to get rid of all the dust particles. You want to get all the sunscreen out of the pores and make your skin ready for the next day.
Step 5: Mask up
A mild mask, something that is cooling like aloe vera gel, honey, or cucumber after a long day in the sun can rejuvenate your skin. You can also use an avocado and strawberry mask to tighten your pores. This will restore some of the moisture content in your skin and keep it hydrated.
Make sure you follow up with a good vitamin C-rich moisturiser. You could also apply olive oil serums. Olive oil is particularly good to repair sun damage.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day and follow these tips to keep your skin hydrated for your super-hot beach vacation!
