Soon it will be summer, and you’ll be thankful you thought about it early and already have everything organized. If you want to look your best for the sunshine, start planning your skincare routine and summer capsule wardrobe in advance, and you can slip effortlessly into the season.
Create a Summer Skincare Routine
If you’re still in winter mode with your skincare routine, it’s time to switch it up, even if the air is still dry and the summer hasn’t quite arrived in your time zone. Preparing a summer skincare routine means understanding what to look out for and buying the best products for the season.
The main thing is the strength and levels of UV sunlight you will be exposed to. UV light easily penetrates the upper layers of the epidermis damaging the deeper layers of skin cells – that’s what causes wrinkles and aging. The best response is to use medium factor sunscreen, SPF30.
Consider Some Body Sculpting
If you’re heading off on vacation this year, you want to look and feel your best; what could be better than sipping a cocktail on a sunbed with the body of your dreams? To achieve this, you will have to hit the gym fairly soon, but if you don’t have time, there may be another solution.
Body sculpting is an umbrella term for a range of treatments relating to self-care – one example is emsculpt neo which is an innovative non-invasive treatment that helps you to lose body fat and tine up fairly quickly. This treatment creates muscle contractions to burn body fat and tone.
Create a Summer Capsule Wardrobe
Everybody could use a new wardrobe for the summer, after all, you don’t want to confuse this year’s photos with the ones of you from last year. Instead, dig out your summer clothes from last year and get a good price for them online – others are likely to have had the same idea as you.
Using the money you get from selling last year’s clothes, you can buy an entirely new capsule wardrobe that will keep you on-trend and in style. The reason a capsule wardrobe is best is because you can keep it small and change it often, it’s ethical, and you don’t get bored.
Use All Natural Products if Possible
Now that you’ve decided on your summer skincare, haircare, and treatment routines, it’s time to invest in a selection of products that will make you feel uniquely yourself this year. But what will you choose? Remember, most conventional products have artificial ingredients and additives.
If you want to avoid drying your skin out and harming the environment or supporting animal cruelty, look for all-natural products. Products with all-natural ingredients are usually more reliable than conventional brands, but always check they are not tested on animals first.
Always Stay Hydrated in the Heat
We sweat during the summer and lose a lot of water from our bodies; this causes our skin to dry up and leads to dryness. It’s important to keep your body hydrated through the summer by drinking between three and five glasses of water every day – why not carry a water bottle?
