FOUR ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR SUMMER SKIN CARE

 

Summer is a beautiful time of the year. But, for many of us, spending time in the sun can damage our skin. Find out how to properly care for and protect your skin while enjoying the best things summer can offer.

OUR TOP FOUR SUMMER SKIN CARE TIPS

For many, attaining a sun-kissed complexion is an essential part of summer. To ensure your skin doesn’t get damaged, it will need more attention and care than usual during these hotter months.
Follow our four easy summer beauty tips for keeping your skin radiant and beautiful in the summer sun:

PROTECT YOUR SKIN

1. PROTECT YOUR SKIN

Always keep some sunscreen with you.

The sun’s effect is even greater in summer and you should therefore always apply sun protection to your face and body. Even if it’s cloudy, harmful UV radiation can still put major stress on your skin.

DRINK ENOUGH WATER

2. DRINK ENOUGH WATER

During the summer you should always have a water bottle with you.

Try to drink two to three litres of water a day in summer to keep your fluid levels up and to help your skin stay hydrated.

TREAT YOUR SUNBURN PROPERLY

3. TREAT YOUR SUNBURN PROPERLY

Treat your skin to a lot of moisture or cooling gels until the discomfort of sunburn disappears and your skin has recovered.

Apply NIVEA’s Moisturising After Sun Body Lotion to soothe your skin and replenish its hydration levels.

TAKE SOME TIME TO COOL OFF

4. TAKE SOME TIME TO COOL OFF

Avoid taking an icy cold shower when trying to cool down after a day in the sun.

A sudden cold shock means not enough heat escapes from the body after showering, and you’ll quickly start sweating again.

It’s better to take a lukewarm shower, to ensure you stay cool for longer once you get out.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
