There’s a swift change from spring right into summer, where one day you’re enjoying mild temps that allow you to wear a light sweater instead of a bulky jacket, whereas the next you find yourself in a tank top. When temps soar, more skin is exposed, and for this reason you want it to be in tip top shape to show off your sexy summer outfits, or perhaps you want glowing skin for when you strut your stuff on the beach. Fortunately, for you, you have found the perfect article to provide you with all the tips you need to step into summer with beautiful glowing and healthy skin. Sit back and keep reading!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Okay, so perhaps you’re used to seeing this tip in winter skin care guides, when the air is extra dry and the skin needs more intense moisture. In summer though, when you find yourself outdoors more often, your skin is exposed to harmful UV rays that can seriously dry out the skin and speed up the signs of aging.
Hydration is your key to keeping your skin youthful and plump, and for putting back any moisture that is lost after hours of lounging on the beach. Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water or raw juices, more if you’re sweating in the sun, and follow up your sun fest with a rich body butter such as our Vanilla Coconut Butter in a vanilla stick format, that will leave your skin feeling like silk, and your senses will be transported to a tropical paradise!
Protect Your Skin
This is the number one tip to keep your skin healthy, radiant and youthful. Sure, the sun leaves your skin with a beautiful bronzed glow, but every time your skin changes colour, damage has been done to some extent, and if you frequently tan (or burn) without any proper sun protection, fine lines and wrinkles will start to show up sooner than you realize.
Many people opt for harmful chemical sunscreens, as they find that healthier physical sunblocks are too thick and chalky on the skin. However, our SPF 30 Sun block from Cocoon Apothecary is different to other physical sunblocks in that it will absorb with no greasy residue, and won’t leave any whiteness on the skin. It also won’t block pores contributing to breakouts. This amazing formula is jam-packed with antioxidant-rich ingredients like sea-buckthorn and rosemary, and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as aloe vera and turmeric. Your skin will reward you for treating it with a product like this!
Try A Coffee Scrub
Cellulite is the bane of many a woman, but did you know it’s simply toxins that are trapped in the skin, and thus give the skin a dimpled appearance? Boosting circulation, and helping the body to release toxins through exfoliation is your best bet to saying goodbye to cellulite once and for all.
Caffeine is excellent for cellulite as it really stimulates blood flow, and tightens and firms the skin. Treat your senses (and your thighs!) to our decadent Cardamom and Coffee Scrub to leave your skin glowing and supple.
Try these tips and we guarantee you’ll be itching to show off your beautiful and radiant summer ready skin!
