1. Protect your skin
It is important to always protect your skin with sunscreen even if you’re staying in town! Luckily, there exist several high quality options to effectively protect your skin against UV rays: sunscreen, oil and sprays. Some makeup products also now contain SPF!
Daily sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 is extremely important in preventing the risk of hyperpigmentation. Melanin overproduction quickly develops when your skin is in direct contact with the sun. Without protection, hyperpigmentation causes dark spots which then become very difficult to treat. A suitable sun protection will help prevent melanin from forming dark spots and uneven tone on your skin. It can also protect against skin cancer, the most common of all cancers. Skin protection is always in season, so slather up!
2. Continuous Hydration
You've heard it countless times, but drinking half your bodyweight in fluid ounces is as good for your complexion as it is for your body. You can aim to mix your liquids throughout the day with water and beverage consumption. Drink at least 1 liter of water and then supplement with other liquids such as milk, coffee or tea. As well, try to incorporate fruits, vegetables and dairy products that are water dense. In case of particularly hot and humid weather, it is recommended to add an additional 0.5L to 1L of water than usual.
Tip: For a fresh and energizing boost to the skin’s hydration, juice four carrots, an apple and a bit of ginger. Healthy complexion guaranteed!
3. Clean and Soothe your skin
Finally, it is important to clean the skin after a day outdoors to remove any impurities that may have been caused by pollution and sun creams. For the face, we recommend using a mild cleanser that will dislodge dirt and gently exfoliate Follow your cleanser with an after-sun facial moisturizer.
For your body, consider investing in a special after-sun body lotion to soothe your skin and help your golden tan last as long as possible. Tinted versions of body creams are also now available and work wonders for accentuating your tan.
