Summer skin care: A complete guide

Summer is one of the most awaited seasons of the year, but also one of the most challenging for our skin. The sun's rays, sea salt and high temperatures can negatively affect our dermis if we don't take the right precautions. In a previous article in our blog, we talked about the importance of moisturising massages to keep the skin soft and healthy. Today, we want to expand on that information with a complete guide to summer skin care.

The importance of protecting the skin from the sun

One of the main factors to consider in summer skin care is sun exposure. Although sunbathing can have benefits such as vitamin D synthesis, prolonged and unprotected exposure can cause significant damage such as sunburn, premature ageing and, in extreme cases, skin cancer.

Sun protection tips

  1. Use of sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Remember to reapply every two hours and after swimming or sweating.
  2. Protective clothing: Wear light but covering clothing, wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  3. Avoid peak hours: Try to stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are most intense.

The effect of saltpetre on the skin

Seawater can be beneficial for the skin due to its mineral content, but the saltpetre can cause dehydration and dryness. It is important to rinse with fresh water after each sea bath and apply a good moisturiser to counteract these effects.

Moisturising Routine: Moisturising Massage

To maintain healthy, radiant skin during the summer, hydration is key. In our previous article, we highlighted how hydrating massages can be an effective tool to keep skin nourished. These massages not only improve circulation and promote relaxation, but also help moisturisers penetrate the skin better.

Benefits of moisturising massages

  • Improves skin elasticity: Helps to keep the skin soft and supple.
  • Promotes cell regeneration: Facilitates the elimination of dead cells and promotes the regeneration of new cells.
  • Relaxation and well-being: Stress reduction and improvement of general well-being, which is also reflected in the health of the skin.

Additional tips for summer skin care

  1. Internal hydration: Drink at least two litres of water a day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
  2. Healthy eating: Eat antioxidant-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables to protect your skin from free radicals.
  3. Gentle cleaning: Use mild cleansers and avoid products that may irritate your skin.
