5 Summer Beauty Secrets for a Glowing Skin

1. Stay Hydrated.

I bet with the beautiful summer days, you’ll be spending more time outside and moving your body more often. Which is great for your health!

But this also means you’ll be spending more energy. That’s why you need to hydrate your body regularly by regularly drinking water througout the day.

Also, consuming water-rich foods like watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumber, oranges, peaches and strawberries will help you stay hydrated. These foods are not only high in liquids but they’re also charged with vitamin C and antioxidants, which may fight free radical damage and delay signs of aging.

In short, a well-hydrated body will show in a radiant skin!

2. Wash With a Gentle Cleanser.

Washing your skin twice a day is key to keep it healthy. There’s an endless number of cleansers in the market. But I recommend using a fragrance-free cleanser because it won’t irritate your skin.

To wash my face I use either neutral soap, the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Face Wash, or the Cetaphil cleanser. These gentle cleansers are great for my skin and for my family’s.

Also, if you want to quickly refresh your face during the day, I recommend this gentle home made rose water toner.

PRO TIP: If you use makeup, remember to remove it before going to sleep. This is essential to keeping your skin healthy and youthful.

And to wash your body, you can use a neutral soap. But if you like a little fragrance on it, I recommend the Live Natural brand. It smells great and it’s gentle for my family’s sensitive skin (I’ve seen this after so many washes during the pandemic).

3. Moisturize Your Skin.

With the high summer temperatures, your skin can easily get dry. But by moisturizing it after your cleansing, you’ll protect it from the elements and make it look healthy.

  • Rosehip oil. A dry, non-greasy one great for all skin types. Since it’s slightly more expensive, I use it over my face and neck to moisturize and soften them. My favorite brand is Bubbli Organics.
  • Curel lotion. A heavy but gentle moisturizer. Perfect for my family’s sensitive skin since it’s prone to eczema.
  • Jojoba oil. A great addition to your skincare routine! Just put a few drops over your lips, hands, body, and feet and they will feel so soft. Also, you apply 1–2 drops of this oil to your hair tips for extra shine!

4. Protect Your skin Against The Sun Damage

Exposing your skin to the sunlight can cause serious damage —from dryness, to accelerated signs of aging, mild burns and more serious effects like skin cancer. That’s why protecting it from sun damage is essential, especially during warmer months when UV exposure is higher.

Here are some effective ways to safeguard your skin (and your loved ones’):

  • Use sunscreen daily. Select a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and apply it on all exposed skin 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. Then, reapply every two hours, or more often if you’re swiming or sweating.
  • Wear protective clothing. Such as long-sleeved shirts, pants, and hats that shield your skin from the sun’s rays. Also wear sunglasses with UV protection to safeguard the delicate skin around your eyes from sun exposure.
  • Seek shade. Try to to stay in the shade when the sun’s rays are the strongest between 10am and 4pm. Also, use umbrellas or seek shelter or canopies when outdoors.
  • Perform regular skin checks. Monitor any changes on your skin, such as moles or changes in the appearance of existing moles. Consult a dermatologist annually for a professionnal skin examination.

5. Moisturize Your Feet

And last but not least: your feet. They’re often the most neglected part of our bodies. But since they do so much for us, they deserve some love!

Here are some ways you can care for your feet in summer

  • Exfoliate your feet with this easy home-made salt scrub.
  • Apply a few drops of jojoba oil over your clean feet just before going to sleep and give them a gentle massage.
  • Pamper them with a nice pedicure. And show off those nice sandals you have in your closet (or planning to buy) 🙂
