Skincare 101: Summer Edition

Its summer time and we are so excited for it, sun, sand, heat, poolside, oceanside you name it we're absolutely ready and excited for it.

As much as we love all these we also have to take into consideration how to protect, hydrate and treat our skin throughout this season. We're all pretty well versed in how much damage the sun causes but environmental factors can also play a huge role in damaging and causing trauma to our skin as well. That's why we're here to help guide you in how to prepare for this!


Protect your skin 👒👒👒

We wear our sunblock to repel those UVA/UVB rays from absorbing into our skin and causing damage to our cells, but adding a Vitamin C serum in the AM will further help enhance your sun protection. Vitamin C serum has gained significant popularity for its remarkable ability to protect and nourish the skin. This powerful antioxidant plays a crucial role in shielding our skin from harmful free radicals and promoting overall skin health.

Free radicals, which are unstable molecules that cause damage to our cells, are produced by various environmental factors such as pollution, UV radiation, and even stress. When left unchecked, these free radicals can accelerate the aging process and lead to skin concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, and dullness. However, vitamin C acts as a potent scavenger of free radicals. By neutralizing these harmful molecules, it helps prevent oxidative stress and promotes cell protection. This means that vitamin C serum can effectively shield our skin from external aggressors and minimize the damage caused by environmental factors. Vitamin C is also known for its skin-repairing properties, it stimulates collagen production, which is essential for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of our skin. By boosting collagen synthesis, vitamin C helps in reducing the appearance of scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture.

Hydrate with H2O💦💦💦

In summer it's crucial to prioritize hydration for your skin. The combination of heat, sun exposure, and increased outdoor activities can lead to dryness and damage. By focusing on proper hydration, you can ensure that your skin stays healthy, nourished, and glowing throughout the season.
Hydrating your skin during the summer serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it helps to maintain the skin's natural moisture balance, preventing it from becoming excessively dry or dehydrated. This is essential as dehydration can lead to a dull complexion and accentuate fine lines and wrinkles.
Secondly, adequate hydration supports the skin's ability to repair itself. The sun's UV rays can cause damage to the skin cells, leading to premature aging and hyperpigmentation. By providing ample hydration, you are facilitating the repair process and helping your skin recover from any sun-induced harm.
Furthermore, hydrating your skin promotes a brighter complexion. When our skin lacks moisture, it can appear lackluster and tired. On the other hand, well-hydrated skin reflects light more effectively, giving it a natural radiance that enhances our overall appearance.

Treat your skin ❤️❤️❤️
