How to prepare your skin for summer with Natural and Holistic Cosmetics

Summer is approaching and, with it, the desire to show off radiant and healthy skin. However, the sun, heat and chlorine in swimming pools can be aggressive for our skin. Therefore, it is essential to prepare it properly for this season. In this post, we will show you how to do it naturally and holistically.

Choose cosmetic products according to your skin type

Holistic cosmetics teaches us that to take care of our skin, we must understand it first. Each skin type has specific needs that must be met, especially during summer.

How do I know what type of skin I have?

Take a close look at your skin and compare it with the following premises:

  • Dry skin : If your skin tends to feel rough, tight, or flaky, you likely have dry skin. This type of skin needs more hydration, especially in hot climates.

  • Oily skin : If your skin is shiny and prone to acne breakouts, you probably have oily skin. This type of skin needs products that control excess sebum without dehydrating it.

  • Combination skin : If some areas of your face (like your forehead, nose, and chin) are oily, while others (like your cheeks) are dry, you have combination skin. This type of skin needs balanced care.

  • Sensitive skin : If your skin tends to get red or irritated easily, you have sensitive skin. This type of skin needs gentle and natural products.

Exfoliation is important

Smooth, radiant skin begins with the removal of dead cells. Exfoliation is essential in any skin care routine, and even more so as we prepare for summer. Natural scrubs, such as those made with sea salt, sugar, or coffee, are great options. Always remember to exfoliate your skin gently to avoid irritation.

Deeply hydrate your skin naturally

Hydration is key to keeping your skin healthy and resistant to the stress factors of summer. On hot, sunny days, our skin can lose moisture quickly, which can lead to dryness, peeling, and an overall dull appearance.

To combat this, it is essential to incorporate intensive hydrating products into your skincare routine . Natural cosmetic products, such as aloe vera-based vegetable oils, can provide your skin with the hydration it needs without adding unnecessary chemicals.

Plant oils, such as jojoba, argan, or almond oil, are fantastic for deep hydration. These oils are rich in essential nutrients and fatty acids, which help restore the skin's natural moisture barrier and keep it soft and supple.

Aloe vera is another star ingredient when it comes to hydration. Known for its soothing and restorative properties, aloe vera can soothe sun-irritated skin and provide a dose of refreshing hydration .

Apart from these, there are many other natural ingredients that are excellent for skin hydration. Shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and cucumber extract are just a few examples .

Don't forget that hydration also comes from within. Drinking enough water throughout the day will help keep your skin hydrated from within. You can also supplement your hydration with water-rich foods, such as cucumbers, watermelons, and strawberries.

Remember, hydrated skin not only looks healthier and more radiant, but it is also better equipped to protect against sun damage and other environmental factors. So make hydration a priority this summer.

Solar protection

Sun protection is a crucial aspect of preparing your skin for summer. But did you know that there are natural and organic sunscreens? These sunscreens not only protect your skin from harmful UV rays, but also nourish it with vitamins and antioxidants.

Rest, crucial for the maintenance of your skin

Last but not least, rest plays a crucial role in the health of our skin. During sleep, our body and skin regenerate and repair themselves. Therefore, make sure you get enough sleep and follow a nighttime skincare routine. Each person is different, and therefore their sleep needs vary, but a good rest is found by sleeping between 7 and 9 hours a day.

Keep in mind that more than the number of hours, it is above all the quality of sleep. If you wake up tired, despite sleeping 8 hours, it means that you have poor quality sleep. This may be due to the type of mattress, room temperature, or stress.

Preparing your skin for summer doesn't have to be complicated. With these simple steps and the help of natural and holistic cosmetics, you can have radiant and healthy skin all season long.
