When you’re on holiday you get so excited because you’re finally getting the sunshine from the second you wake up to the second you go to bed practically! 🌞
There’s literally nothing quite like that feeling of the airplane doors opening and the heat hitting you in the face! 😍🙌🏻✈️
There are some precautions you need to take though when you’re in the sun regarding looking after your skin! So here they are! 👇🏻
Make sure you are using a good quality SPF that has a high UV protection! You’re looking for the 5 stars on the bottle to know that it’s good quality! This doesn’t mean you won’t get a tan at all, it just means it’s creating a safer barrier on your skin so your skin won’t react and burn.
Avoid sitting out in the direct sun between 10 and 3! As this is when the sun is at its strongest! It doesn’t mean you have to sit inside at all. But just pop on a hat, cover up or sit in some shade more frequently.
When you’re in the sun you want to up your water intake. The heat will make you sweat in your bodies own defence mechanism to cool you down. So make sure you keep yourself well hydrated at all times!
Make sure you apply your sunscreen at least 30 minutes prior to venturing out into the sun. Popping it on just before you head out will leave some of the cream sitting on the top layer of your skin and it will be dried up and evaporated by the sun. Applying 30 mins before going outside just gives it time to sink in to the deeper layers of the skin, offering better protection.
Take cooler showers during the day. This will help take any heat out of the body.
Take moisturiser with you that has aloe Vera in it. Aloe Vera is amazing for repairing the skin and helps to cool down the skin. Applying moisturiser every day will help to keep your skin fresh and supple.
Avoid any moisturisers or sunscreens that contain oil! Preferably look for products that state on them that they are non comedogenic. This means that the ingredients will not clog your pores and create break outs.
