The Ultimate Guide for Brides: Summertime Skin Care
Summer is here, and it’s the season of weddings, beach trips, and plenty of sunshine. As we bask in the warmth of the sun’s glow and the salty sea breeze, there’s nothing better than feeling confident in your skin. But with summer, comes some new challenges for brides. The sun’s harsh rays can cause skin damage that can be irremediable. However, brides don’t need to worry. In this blog post, we’ll tell you how to safeguard your skin for your wedding day. From sunscreen to hydration, we’ve got your back!
Sun Protection is Essential
One of the essential tips to keep your skin from getting sunburnt is to apply sunscreen regularly and adequately. Make sure your sunscreen contains at least SPF 30 and has UVA and UVB protection. Apply your sunscreen at least 15 to 20 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours. For brides who don’t like the feel of heavy sunscreen, there are sunscreens that offer a lightweight, matte finish. It is also important to note that high SPF does not guarantee full sun protection, so don’t skip the reapplication and try to avoid midday sun. Stay in the shade! It’s almost impossible to avoid the sun entirely, but when possible, avoid being in direct sunlight for too long. The sun is at its peak between 10 am and 4 pm, so if you must be outside during that time, stay in the shade or use your umbrella. Cover Up! Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and a light-colored, long-sleeved shirts. And if you are worried about getting uneven tan lines, try a faux tan. But keep in mind that it’s best to avoid tanning lotions or sprays right before your wedding – they can streak or stain your dress.
The heat and sun can take a toll on your body and skin. Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout your day to stay hydrated. Water helps to keep your body and skin healthy and also keeps you cool. Improve Your Diet! The food you consume plays a crucial role in your skin’s health. Eat food that is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to nourish your skin from within. Fruits like berries, apricots, and watermelon are rich in vitamin c, which helps collagen production and protects your skin against free radicals. Vegetables like spinach, kale, and broccoli are rich in vitamin e, which helps fight signs of aging.
Exfoliation is essential to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. Regular exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and stimulates cell turnover. However, don’t overdo it. Exfoliating too much can leave your skin feeling raw and irritated. Try exfoliating once or twice a week to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. And always remember to moisturize afterward, so your skin doesn’t dry out.
Use Facial Mists
Facial mists are a fun and a refreshing way to keep your skin hydrated on a hot summer day. They contain ingredients like thermal water, aloe vera, and other hydrating agents. They are perfect for refreshing your skin throughout the day. You can use them before applying your makeup, after a workout, and even during long car rides. There are many options to choose from, so make sure you pick the one that suits your skin type.
Maintain a Skincare Routine
A good skincare routine is crucial to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Start by cleansing your skin twice a day to remove dirt, oil, makeup, and any impurities. Follow up with a toner to soothe your skin and balance your pH levels. Next, apply a serum or moisturizer to protect your skin from any damage and keep it smooth and hydrated. Lastly, apply a night cream to restore and renew your skin while you sleep. Investing time and effort in good skincare will make a significant difference for your wedding day and the long term.
Be Careful with Sunburn Care
Even with the utmost precaution and care, you might still experience sunburn or heat rash on your big day. Do not panic – we still have options available for you! Apply aloe vera gel or cold green tea bags to soothe sunburned areas. Apply a light moisturizer that doesn’t contain alcohol, which might sting and dry out your skin further. Avoid rigorous scrubbing or peeling, as it can make the burn worse. Remember, the last thing you want on your wedding day is to be uncomfortable, so take care of your skin. Getting married and having a flawless wedding is every bride’s dream. However, summertime skin problems like sunburn, dehydration, and breakouts can come in the way. Maintaining your skin during the summer season is important to have radiant and healthy-looking skin. Your skin is the canvas that your makeup will be applied to, so taking care of it should be your topmost priority. By following our tips and tricks, you can keep your skin healthy and glowing throughout any summer event. Celebrate your wedding day with flawless, healthy skin by keeping our tips in mind!
