If you’re eager for a dose of Summer heat, this post will help you keep your skin safe and protected!
This is the time of year when taking care of your skin becomes more important than ever. You’ll probably be spending more time outside creating memories and soaking up Vitamin D. The last thing you want to do is risk a sunburn that could put your skin at risk for aging, not to mention increase your risk of skin cancer.
The sun’s UV rays are the enemy when it comes to your skin. In fact, UV rays account for 80% of skin ageing so why aren’t we taking better measures to protect our precious skin?
In this article, we will share some ways you can ensure your skin stays protected and cool all summer long!
SPF is your best friend
This has to be the most obvious one, but did you know that the kind of SPF you choose matters?
Most sunscreens you find when browsing the aisles of your local drugstore are chemical sunscreens that actually penetrate into the bloodstream and flood your system with toxic ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which may affect your hormones and cause all sorts of issues.
You want to opt for a mineral SPF that will act as a barrier, sitting on top of the skin to reflect sunlight back into the environment. Look for active minerals like zinc oxide in concentrations of at least 20% to provide all the UVA and UVB protection you need. Minerals are also gentler on the skin and better for the environment too! Soleo Organics is one of our favorites. It's great for the body and doesn't cause break outs on your face!
Keep your Healing Sprays in the fridge!

Stay hydrated from the inside out
Staying hydrated internally is not only critical for your health when temperatures get a little too high, it also helps to ensure your skin stays healthy and looking its best too!
Drinking more water than you normally would, especially when you are outdoors, is essential. We know that plain water can get a little boring so why not spruce it up by adding fresh berries, lemon, cucumber, fresh mint and anything else you like to a large pitcher of water and allow it to infuse overnight.
Wake up to delicious berry-flavored water and sip on this all day long!
Feast on fruits and veggies that are high in water content. Watermelon, cucumbers, strawberries, peaches, lettuce, celery, and grapefruit are all fantastic options. In fact, eating them is equivalent to drinking a glass of water!
These tips will ensure your skin stays protracted and cool no matter how hot it gets! Be sure to take care of yourself and head indoors when you need a break.
