Update your body care routine this summer

5 Essential Body Care Tips for a Glorious Summer

As the sun’s warm embrace signals the arrival of summer, it’s time to update your body care routine to match the season’s demands. The combination of soaring temperatures, increased humidity, and outdoor activities can take a toll on your skin and overall well-being. But fear not! We’ve curated a list of five essential body care tips that will help you navigate the summer months with grace and radiance.

1. Hydration is Your Best Friend

Your body loses more fluids through sweat during the summer, making it crucial to replenish those lost fluids. Make it a habit to carry a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go. Infuse your water with slices of citrus fruits or refreshing herbs like mint for an added twist of flavour.

"Hydrated skin not only feels better but also appears more vibrant and youthful."

2. Sunscreen: Non-Negotiable

Sunscreen isn’t just an option; it’s an absolute necessity. Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is essential to prevent sunburn, premature aging, and even skin cancer.

Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. We recommend Uriage’s Bariesun Eco Tube Moisturising Lotion SPF50. It strongly protects the skin from UV rays while also protecting the environment, thanks to an eco-friendly approach. Apply it generously to all exposed areas of your body, including often-forgotten spots like your ears and the tops of your feet. Reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.

3. Exfoliation for that Summer Glow

Exfoliation is your ticket to achieving that coveted summer glow. Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and allows your skin to absorb moisturisers more effectively.

Choose a gentle exfoliant like Uriage Exfoliating body scrub that will renew and reinvigorate the skin. Aim for exfoliating 2-3 times a week to maintain smooth, radiant skin throughout the season.

4. Lightweight Moisturisers are Key

Swap your heavy winter moisturisers for lightweight, water-based alternatives. Heavy creams can feel suffocating in the heat, potentially leading to breakouts and excessive oiliness. Look for gel or lotion formulas that provide hydration without clogging pores.

We love Molton Brown’s collection of body creams. They’ll leave your skin feeling super soft and utterly nourished. Moisturise skin post-shower – or when your body craves a boost of hydration – with their lightly moisturising lotion, layered with one of their enticing fragrances.

Our favourite this summer is Jasmine & Sun Rose. This captivating body lotion includes a sensual blend of raspberry, jasmine and labdanum notes. It will thoroughly nourish your sun kissed skin leaving you smelling fabulous!

"SkiNcolab Tip: Don’t forget to moisturise right after you shower, when your skin is still damp, to lock in the moisture."

5. Embrace Breathable Fabrics

Your clothing choices play a vital role in your body’s well-being during the summer. Opt for breathable, loose-fitting fabrics like cotton and linen. These materials allow your skin to breathe and help to prevent heat rashes and irritation. Light-colored clothing also reflects sunlight, keeping you cooler under the scorching sun.

With these five essential body care tips, you’re armed and ready to make the most of summer while keeping your body healthy and radiant. Prioritise hydration, protect your skin, and indulge in self-care practices that leave you feeling your best. Embrace the season with confidence, knowing that you’re taking great care of your body from head to toe.
