Imagine this: It's a sunny Saturday morning, and you're ready for a fun day at the beach with friends. You've got your favorite swimsuit, a wide-brimmed hat, and stylish sunglasses. As you pack your beach bag, you wonder—how can you keep your skin as radiant as you feel?

Welcome to our expert guide on summer skin care tips! Whether you're a beach lover, a hiking enthusiast, or just enjoy lounging by the pool, keeping your skin protected and glowing is essential.

At Life's Abundance, we believe that healthy skin is happy skin. Inspired by the University of Rochester Medicine dermatologist, Dr. Mara Weinstein Velez, we’re sharing our top summer skin care tips. [1]

We'll also introduce our Facial Cleanser, detailing its carefully chosen organic ingredients that make a real difference for your skin. With this product and expert advice, you can start a natural skin care routine that protects and pampers your face. Let’s get started!

How To Take Care of Skin in Summer Naturally

Hydration is the Magic Word

Drinking plenty of water is key to keeping your body and skin happy. Dehydrated skin can look dry and dull, with more fine lines and wrinkles. In the summer, we sweat more, so it's even more important to stay hydrated in the heat.

This means you should sip water throughout the day, especially if you’re going to be outside. Add cucumber, lemon, or mint for a refreshing twist!

Eat Well with Hydrating Foods and Healthy Fats

Eating the right foods directly impacts your skin’s health. Nutritionists and dermatologists agree that adding essential fats to your diet keeps your skin soft and elastic. Start by eating oily fish like salmon two to three times a week and adding seeds or nuts to your snacks. Flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts are rich in good fats that nourish your skin.

Antioxidants are also your skin’s best friend, especially in summer. The sun can cause free radicals to damage your skin cells, but antioxidants can neutralize these effects. Add berries, citrus fruits, and leafy greens to your diet.

Hydrate your skin from within with foods high in water content like cucumbers, watermelon, lettuce, celery, tomatoes, and apples. Oranges are also great, with high water content and plenty of natural vitamin C to brighten your complexion.

A glowing summer complexion also means cutting back on foods that can cause skin congestion and breakouts, like dairy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and processed foods. While we're not suggesting you ditch your daily coffee or Friday night pizza altogether, moderation is key. Focus on adding more of the good stuff to make your diet skin-friendly.

Sunscreen is a Must

Harmful UV rays can cause sunburn, premature aging, and increase your risk of skin cancer. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and apply it generously to all exposed areas.

Opt for sunscreens with mineral-based ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. They naturally deflect sunlight to prevent UV damage. For those prone to hyperpigmentation, a tinted mineral-based sunscreen with iron oxides can block light contributing to pigment production.

Reapplying sunscreen every two hours is also crucial, especially if you're swimming or sweating. Remember, even on cloudy days, UV rays can penetrate the clouds, so sunscreen is a must!

Life's Abundance

Life’s Abundance Facial Cleanser is the perfect way to remove SPF at the end of the day, without stripping your skin’s natural oils.

Add a Post-Sun Care Routine

Keeping your skin clean in the summer can be tricky. After a day in the sun, your skin craves some TLC. Start with a cool shower and our Facial Cleanser to wash away sweat and sunscreen residue. Then follow up with a hydrating moisturizer to replenish lost moisture. Aloe vera gel can soothe sunburned skin. Avoid picking at peeling skin and steer clear of hot showers to prevent further irritation.
