Ready to make your escape!? If you are fortunate enough to be escaping the winter weather for warmer and sunnier days this spring, then you must read on for some dry skin treatment tips to keep you safe and gorgeous in the sun from head to toe.
Not only do you need to pack up all of your shorts and bathing suits for upcoming spring break sunny destination getaways you also need to get your face, body and hair (often overlooked!) all ready for every stage of sun exposure.
Here are some things you need to start doing right after you book that airplane ticket!
Start Your Dry Skin Treatment 30 Days Before!
- Dry brush for 3-5 minutes before showering each day,
- Exfoliate with a gentle face and lip scrub 2-3 times a week in the shower or bath.
- And top it off by moisturizing with an emollient body butter or body oil every day or twice a day if very dry skin.
- Increase your water and herbal tea intake to help hydrate your body and skin.
- Buy a good quality mineral based, natural SPF for face and body, a great big sexy hat with a wide brim, and a stainless steel water bottle.
Dry Skin Saver to the Rescue!
Your winter skin is dry, flaky, itchy and crying out for you to give it some relief. It will take some self-care and effort to get it in good shape before you expose it to the sunshine.
While in the sun: Protect Face, Ears, Lips, Hair & Body!
Wear Sunscreen of course. Always.
Of course we are going to tell you to wear sunscreen!
Ensure you’re using that clean & natural sun protection of 60 SPF applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to all of your skin that will be exposed (don't forget your ears, lips, eyelids too!). Check out Think Dirty and Leaping Bunny for some clean sunscreen suggestions.
Don't neglect your hair in the sun!
Your hair can also get very damaged from UV rays, chemicals from the pool and the heat while swimming in the pool or lounging in the sun! I am definitely guilty of this one and my hairdresser reminds me often to take good care of my hair while on vacation.
Watch this video of our Founder & CEO, Jodie, talking about how she has protected her hair from sun damage when on a sunny vacay.
Protect your luscious lips
look for a lip balm with SPF and be sure to apply your face sunscreen to your lips, eyelids and ears too.
Don't Forget About Your Skin After the Sun Time!
Ensure you are using a gentle body wash or soap in the shower to get all the sunscreen off, and apply body butter at least twice a day to calm the body (Make That Kiss Last contains lavender and vanilla which is a great way to soothe sun kissed or irritated skin). Using something heavy with deep skin penetration will help to prolong that gorgeous tan you are working on too!
Be sure to look after that gorgeous face of yours, naturally
For your face, ensure you use something to calm your exposed skin with healthy and natural skincare made of plant based ingredients without synthetics of course. We suggest some soothing products such as our Rose Chamomile Face Tonic, followed by the Youthful Kisses Anti-Aging Serum and Anti-Aging Daytime Moisturizer (which contains a natural 30 SPF from ingredients such as Red Raspberry Seed Oil and other anti-aging ingredients) and at night use our Replenishing Avocado Night Cream.
Enjoy and stay safe while having fun in the sun! You deserve it, sunshine.
