12 Magickal Skincare Tips for Summer

Summer is finally here and it's time to update our skincare regimen! It's not the easiest season for our skin and adjusting to the warmth and sunshine is a must. Being exposed under the sun for a prolonged time can accelerate some common signs of skin aging like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. It's always important to update our skincare regimen according to season. The scorching heat, pollution, plus the humidity will wipe off your skin's natural glow!

Using natural skin care product is also favorable especially those that have sensitive skin! Natural ingredients can do amazing things for your skin and knowing which one that will work well with your skin is lifechanging! We need to be mindful of how much synthetic chemicals there are in products we are going to slather on our face and body. It's important to go for non-toxic, organic, and cruelty-free beauty and we rounded up some of our faves.

 

Get that summer glow with these skin care tips!

1. Wash, cleanse, exfoliate your face

The most basic tip anyone needs! If you are obsessed with skincare, then you know that washing your face should always be number one on your list. Get rid of skin impurities like the sebum trapped in your pores and dead skin cells. Washing your face will also help skin maintain the proper level of hydration and pH levels.

2. Use Sunscreen

We all know the damages sun exposure can do to our skin, but the most dangerous one is Skin Cancer. Regular sunscreen application will lessen the chance of developing skin cancer. It will also protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which come in two forms – UVA and UVB rays. 


3. Use a Refreshing Toner

Since it's going to be hot, a soothing and refreshing toner is a must have! Aside from providing additional cleansing, toners help in firming up pores after cleansing and after being exposed from heat and harmful UV rays, a soothing toner will help calm and cool your skin down. Here's an additional tip: Keep a bottle in the cooler for an all-over pick-me-up on a hot day!

4. Moisturize your Body

When you talk about skincare, no routine is complete without mentioning a good body moisturizer. Moisturizing will not only add water to your skin but also traps water to plump it up and protect it. Applying lotion will help treat chronic dryness, itchiness, and irritation.

5. Don't Let the Bugs Bite

If you are living in a tropical country or planning on going to one for summer break, then you should look out for bug bites! They are hard to get rid of, it can linger for weeks. If you happen to have one or two a great skin salve will help save the day! And you can avoid it all at once. Save your skin from inflammation and bite marks buy spraying an insect repellant!

6. Show your lips some love

When the deadly heat strikes our lips tend to get dehydrated. It's important to keep them soft and supple by using a lip balm. Use lip balm, stop yourself from licking your lips as it causes to get more chapped! Keep in mind to reapply when needed! Maintain soft, supple lips all summer long. 

Lip Balm: Honey Rose

7. Protect your hair

Your beautiful hair is more exposed to the harmful UV rays. Too much heat and humidity will give you dry and frizzy hair. Applying oil will improve softness and moisture as well as protect your hair from overexposure. Constantly protect your hair from the heat, sun, and humidity!

9. Start smelling Like Summer

What's a great skin if you don't smell like the beautiful summer solstice! This extra and optional tip will leave everyone turning heads whenever you pass by. We added summer fragrance on this skin care list because we believe that smell is such a powerful evocator of memory. So when you smell a certain scent, you will remember a specific memory. Plus we just love being extra romantic!

10. Wear Sun Shield Accessories

After all the skin care products you slathered on your body and face, take the extra step by using accessories that will protect your precious skin! Get that wide-brimmed hat, big sunnies, and a cute, light cover up!

11. Eat Healthily

Be healthy inside and out! If you eat good food it will show on your skin. So it's important to eat something that will keep you healthy all over! Load up on vitamin E to have more natural antioxidants. Don't just really on what you put on our skin, but also eat something that will help the natural chemicals in your body keep your skin healthy.

12. Stay Hydrated

All these summer talks got us thirsty! Speaking of, don't forget to load up on water and stay hydrated. If you're going out, don't forget to bring a bottle filled with cold water! The water will help optimize blood pressure, regulate body temperature, and moving waste out of the body.
