Now that spring has arrived and summer is on the way, the cosmeceuticals that you carry with you each day are likely starting to change. If you are already making your way to the beach this season, there are a few key products that you should make sure you have on hand. Failure to properly take care of your skin on the beach can lead to burns, wrinkles, and even serious skin illnesses.
Cosmeceuticals with SPF
The number one most important cosmeceuticals to have on hand for a beach day are those that include SPF in the formula. Many serums, lotions, and foundations have a minimum amount of SPF included, which is great for everyday use. However, if you are going to be sitting out on the beach, you should be wearing a minimum of SPF 50 and reapplying it every two to three hours in order to get the best possible protection. Additionally, you must reapply your sunscreen every time you come out of the water, even if the packaging says that the product is water resistant.
Even if you have the best intentions for your spring skin care, you may forget to reapply your sunscreen or choose to go without it one day. If this happens, you need to have cosmeceuticals on hand that can soothe and expedite healing of a sunburn. Look for lotions or gels that have aloe vera as one of the main active ingredients. Aloe is excellent for soothing burns and providing instant relief for any pain or discomfort.
A Light Moisturizer
No matter how careful you are, exposure to the sun is going to take moisture away from your skin. When you get off the beach, the first thing that you do should be to replenish your skin’s moisture with a hydrating lotion or cream. For warmer months, choose a lighter weight moisturizer that will not melt into your pores, clogging them and causing an array of different blemishes.
You should be wearing cosmeceuticals with SPF in them every day, such as some of the products from Genovo Skincare. When you are hitting the beach, you need to supplement those products with extra sun protection, after sun products, and moisturizer to rehydrate your skin after a day in the sun.
