We are sure that you, just like us, are counting down the days until lounging and drinking cocktails on the beach, because summer is just about to begin. While we are counting down to the warmest season of the year, we decided to shorten the days by preparing for the long-awaited summer. In addition to preparing summer clothes, it is necessary to do another, if you ask the experts, very important thing –to prepare the skin for summer.

After colder days and long periods when your skin was constantly exposed to cold, wind, and due to staying in heated rooms with warm and dry air, free radicals, and other harmful external influences, the skin needs recovery and regeneration. The better you prepare your skin, the better it will withstand the strong summer sun, and the smoother, softer, and healthier it will be. Wondering how to prepare your skin for summer? The answer is very simple and lies in these few steps you should adopt to keep your skin revitalized and radiant all summer long.

Make a thorough skin peel

.

You probably already know how important it is to do skin peels from time to time. Exfoliation is a key thing in facial and body skincare. This beauty ritual stimulates circulation and removes dead skin cells, but also removes excess makeup, natural oils, and small accumulations of dirt mixed with sweat that causes clogging of pores and in many cases the appearance of acne and lifeless appearance of the skin. After a good peeling, the skin is ready to breathe again, and it will absorb water and powerful active ingredients from cosmetics that are part of your beauty routine much better. Pay special attention to feet that are usually dry and dull after winter, especially skin from ankle to knee.

Peeling is good to do once or twice a week, and the most effective are homemade peels that you can make yourself. You can use a combination of sea salt and olive oil to exfoliate the body. Sea salt has a mild antiseptic and antibacterial effect and is great for removing dead skin cells, while olive oil nourishes and hydrates the skin. You can also add a few drops of grapefruit essential oil to stimulate the excretion of toxins. Facial skin is softer, so instead of salt, reach for sugar that you can mix with honey and get a super simple, cheap, and effective peeling.

Tone the skin several times a day

How to prepare the skin for summer?

The oil glands on the surface of the skin are much more active in the warmer months. The more sebum present on your skin, the more likely you are to have acne. Acne can occur at any stage of life (not just puberty) and is common in women and men in their 30s and 40s. If you are struggling with acne or have oily skin, be sure to include a tonic in your daily beauty routine! Many people mix the tonic with facial cleansers, but the tonic is a step after cleansing the face. On a freshly cleansed face, lightly dab the tonic into the skin with a pad, which will provide much-needed hydration, but also remove sweat and excess oil. Use the tonic in the morning and evening, but also during the day when you notice that your face is starting to shine from oil.

Hydrate the skin inside and out

.

Exposed to different weather conditions, especially during the summer heat, our skin loses large amounts of water. It is known that water makes up 70 percent of the body, and sufficient intake is needed for optimal functioning of the whole body. In addition to playing a major role in metabolic processes, it is also an important factor in maintaining beautiful and healthy skin. Hydration inside and outside the skin remains elastic and soft and alleviates the negative effects of aging, which is especially important for the facial skin that is most exposed and requires special treatment. To prevent skin dehydration, be sure to drink at least two liters of water a day (if you sweat profusely, it is desirable and more) and lubricate the skin daily with moisturizers and lotions (lighter water-based formulas are recommended).

Watch your diet

.

It is not said for no reason – you are what you eat. The health and quality of the skin largely depend on the vitamins and minerals it draws from food. Avoid sugars, coffee, alcohol, processed and fast foods, and give preference to fresh fruits and vegetables. Foods like tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, grapes, bananas, kale, walnuts, pears, avocados, and watermelons will help your skin glow. We also recommend foods rich in vitamin A, such as carrots, apricots, melons, peppers, peaches, and tomatoes to help you ‘catch’ the tan way faster. In addition, Retinol, or vitamin A, is an excellent ally in the fight against the reduction of signs of aging – stimulates collagen production, smoothes wrinkles, regulates pigmentation spots, and also supports skin elasticity.

.

Take dietary supplements

.

All the nutrients needed for skin health are difficult to get through food. Most of us live a fast-paced life, so often due to lack of time we do not have time to cook a quality meal, let alone a balanced diet and recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals. That is why dietary supplements are a great solution. For example, collagen supplements (a natural protein that helps skin stay flexible and youthful) are an effective, non-invasive way to combat the reduction in natural collagen production in our body, which begins to disappear after 25. years of age. Maintaining a constant level of collagen can help the body maintain the level of immune cells and maintain moisture which prevents the harmful effects of the sun. Collagen Boost is a natural way to look younger and keep your skin beautiful and well-groomed at any age. Each daily dose of Collagen Boost contains hydrolyzed fish collagen, MSM, vitamin C, B complex, hyaluronic acid, and zinc that together form an innovative, highly effective, anti-aging, a liquid dietary supplement that ensures the health and beauty of skin, hair, nails, and joints. It has been clinically proven that taking 10 g of Naticol hydrolyzed marine collagen over a period of six weeks reduces the appearance of wrinkles and improves skin tightness.

Don’t forget to protect yourself from harmful UV radiation

.

Many people mistakenly believe that it is enough to apply the product with SPF during your stay on the beach or when you are directly exposed to the sun during high temperatures, but this is a myth that could cost you premature photoaging of your skin. It is very important to avoid sunbathing from 11 am to 4 pm when the sun is strongest, wear airy clothes that cover the body and a large hat that protects the head and face, and, of course, apply sunscreen before leaving the apartment. Start applying SPF daily on your skin to prepare it for longer-lasting sun exposure. When the temperature rises, initially use creams with a stronger protection factor, and you can gradually reduce it over time. At the end of the summer, you will have tanned, healthy, and radiant skin!
