Are you ready to glow?

Let’s get started!

5 Summer Beauty Secrets You Need to Know to Show off a Glowing Skin

Hydrate your body and 5 summer beauty tips 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. So you need to hydrate your body regularly by drinking several glasses of water a 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.

Quick word of advice:
If you use makeup, remember to remove it before going to sleep. This is essential to keep 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.

My favourite moisturizers are:

Rosehip oil to moisturize your skin naturally by Bubbli Organics
  • 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 can use it for your hair to add some shine by applying 1–2 drops to your hair tips!

5. Protect Against The Sun Damage

This beauty hack is also critical since 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.

Here are 4 easy ways to protect your skin (and your loved ones’s) from the sun:

Neutrogena Sheer Zinc sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage by A Stellar You Montreal Lifestyle Blogger

Here are 4 easy ways to protect your skin (and your loved ones’s) from the sun:

  • Use a sunscreen lotion. My favourite brand is Neutrogena Sheer Zinc. It’s a gentle formula even on sensitive skin, free of fragrance and irritating chemicals.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV light and the delicate skin that surrounds them.
  • Avoid exposing your skin directly to the sun. I know this is a tough one since we love to show off a tanned look. But just think that doing this has long term consequences.
  • Wear a hat to protect your face and neck from the sun.

5. Moisturize Your Feet

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

Here’s how you can take care of your feet this 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.

    I’m so bad at keeping up with moisturizing my feet! I’ll try making that salt scrub as I don’t like using those exfoliating boards.
