Beat the Summer Heat: How to Keep Your Skin Hydrated and Luxurious
Summertime is here, and we all know what that means – endless hours under the sun, day trips to the beach, and a whole lot of sweat.
As much as we love soaking in the warm weather, the season can take a toll on our skin, leaving it dehydrated, dull, and lifeless. Keeping your skin hydrated is not only essential for maintaining its health but also gives you that glowy, radiant look we all crave.
If you’re wondering how you can beat the summer heat, keep reading. In this blog post, we will discuss the reasons why your skin loses water in the summer months and share some tips and tricks that you can incorporate into your skincare routine to keep your skin hydrated and luxurious. We will also recommend some of the best moisturizers from Bella Reina Spa that will help you achieve the perfect summer glow.
Why Hydration During Summer Is Key
Before we dive into the tips and tricks on how to hydrate your skin, let’s first understand why your skin loses water in the summer months. The summer months can be a challenge for your skin due to the increased exposure to heat, humidity, and intense sun rays. All of these factors contribute to an increased loss of water from your skin. This dehydration occurs because when exposed to extreme temperatures, your sweat glands become overactive, leading to an increase in perspiration which drains moisture away from the surface of your skin. Furthermore, UV radiation from the sun causes disruption to the cell membrane, which leads to further dehydration. Luckily, we have a few tried-and-true tricks you can use to combat the summer heat.
Tip #1 – Drink plenty of water
The first and most effective way to keep your skin hydrated is by drinking plenty of water. Our skin is the first organ to show signs of dehydration. It’s important to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and supple. If you don’t like the taste of plain water, you can add some fruits or herbs to give it some flavor.
Tip #2 – Use a hydrating moisturizer
Using a hydrating moisturizer is another way to keep your skin hydrated. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides. These ingredients help to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated all day long.
We recommend three products at Bella Reina Spa to keep your skin soft, supple, and smooth…
- Bella Reina Hydrating Lipid Complex Ceramide Serum
- Bella Reina Skin Care Green Pro-Lift Crème Moisturizer
- Skin Script Açai Berry Moisturizer
Also, remember to moisturize both in the morning and at night!
Tip #3 – Avoid hot showers
Hot showers after a long day can be relaxing, but did you know taking long, hot showers can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and dehydrated? Instead of hot showers, opt for shorter warm showers, and avoid using harsh soaps or body washes. Taking care of your skin while showering is an important part of achieving a hydrated and luxurious complexion.
Tip #4 – Use a hydrating facial mist
Do you have a trip or two planned this summer? Facial mists are an effective way to hydrate your skin on-the-go. They help to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. You can use a facial mist before applying your makeup, or anytime you feel your skin needs a quick pick-me-up. Our Bella Reina Skin Hydrating Setting Mist is packed with natural ingredients that help to soothe and hydrate your skin. This lightweight spray effectively sets foundation while locking in moisture so you can look beautiful without worrying about sweat or smudges. Plus, it’s paraben-free, alcohol-free, and oil-free, making it perfect for all skin types!
Tip #5 – Eat hydrating foods
Incorporating hydrating foods into your diet can be a great way to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. So, go ahead and enjoy some fresh slices of watermelon for a sweet snack or add cucumber to your salad for an extra hydrating boost! And don’t forget about delicious tomatoes – throw them in your favorite sandwich or have them as a side with dinner. Eating foods that are high in water content will help to keep your skin looking vibrant and healthy all day long! So what are you waiting for? Make sure to add some of these hydrating foods to your daily diet – your skin will thank you!
Tip #6 – Girl, wear your SPF!
The sun’s UV rays can damage our skin and cause it to lose water, leading to dryness and premature aging. Protect your skin and beat the summer heat by using broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and make sure to reapply every two hours, especially if you’re sweating or swimming.
Whatever your preference is, just be sure you’re protecting your beautiful complexion!
