Ah, the beach. The warm sun on your skin, the sound of the waves, and the endless cocktails. Nothing beats a vacation by the sea. However, with the fun comes a bit of prep work. One of the most important aspects of getting beach ready is taking care of your skin. After all, if you’re going to be lounging in the sun all day, you don’t want to end up looking like a lobster. Here’s a guide on how to get your skin looking its best for your upcoming beach vacation.
Start with Exfoliation
Before you hit the beach, it’s important to exfoliate your skin. This will remove any dead skin cells and allow your skin to absorb moisturizer more effectively. Plus, exfoliating will give you a smoother, brighter complexion. LUNA™4 body is the perfect device to do so. This massaging body brush for daily deep cleansing is made of ultra-hygienic bacteria-resistant silicone touchpoints that are 35 times more hygienic than brushes with nylon bristles. It is clinically proven to remove 99% of dirt and oil on the skin, meaning clogged pores and breakouts are a thing of the past. Combined with T-Sonic™ pulsations, exfoliates dead skin cells and ingrown hairs, without being abrasive on the skin. T-Sonic™ massage temporarily dilates pores so that the silicone touchpoints can remove dirt and oil trapped deep within making it a perfect prep for your skin to deeply absorb any creams or lotions you apply afterwards, preventing dry skin and ingrown hair.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
The sun, salt, and sand can damage your skin, so it’s important to keep it well moisturized. Choose a moisturizer that’s lightweight and fast-absorbing, so you won’t feel greasy or sticky in the heat. Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which will help your skin retain moisture. Don’t forget to apply lip balm, too! Your lips can also get dry and chapped from the sun and saltwater.
Protect Your Skin with Sunscreen
This may seem like a no-brainer, but we can’t emphasize enough how important it is to wear sunscreen. Not only will it protect you from painful sunburns, but it will also help prevent skin cancer and premature aging. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and apply it liberally and frequently. Don’t forget to reapply after swimming or sweating.
Treat Your Skin After the Beach
After a day at the beach, your skin may need a little extra care. Call UFO™ 2 which is THE device that is going to help you after sun exposure. Turn this iconic device on, choose the red light therapy, and watch high-tech work its magic. Namely, red light therapy increases the body’s production of collagen and elastin, as well as an increased immune response that helps clear away dead cells and repair damaged ones. And UFO™ 2 features not only red light therapy but also cryotherapy (simply put – cooling) that will give you much-needed refreshment. After the skin is cooled and hydrated, don’t forget to shower and rinse the salt and sand from your body as well. Apply the lotion to give your skin an extra boost of hydration and repair any damage from the sun.
Don’t Skip on the Eye Cream
We often forget about our delicate eye area, but it’s one of the first places to show signs of skin aging. Apply a nourishing IRIS™ C-Concentrated Brightening Eye Cream to hydrate and brighten the under-eye area. This velvety-soft and ultra-lightweight eye cream melts into the skin, instantly color-correcting and brightening dark circles. Packed with moisturizing & renewing actives, this antioxidant-rich eye cream also smooths the delicate eye area, minimizing fine lines while stimulating microcirculation to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and uneven skin tone.
There you have it, folks! Follow these tips to get your skin beach ready and keep it healthy and hydrated all vacation long. Don’t forget to enjoy yourself and have fun in the sun, but also remember to take care of your skin. Now go relax and soak up some rays!
