Be prepared for even the hottest days of the summer with this short guide on how to navigate through the jungle of care products!
During the hottest and driest summer days, your skin is likely to suffer. It is not only important to take care of your body during the hot summer months, but also of your skin – your body’s largest organ. Follow these easy tips on how to keep your skin healthy and fresh.
Body care is all about hydration
The most essential thing to remember when it comes to body care is to stay hydrated. By drinking enough water (and cutting down on soda, alcohol, and caffeine) you not only hydrate your body, but you will see an improvement in your skin as well. In the case of dry indoor air, a humidifier is not only good for your skin but also your lungs.
Buy products according to the time of the year
Your care products do have a significant impact on your body care, and the products your skin needs might differ depending on the season. A body serum could be preferable in summer; while a regular lotion or cream might feel too heavy, a body serum dries instantly and without the greasy feeling. If you exfoliate your skin regularly, the care products will absorb even better. An easy way to apply a cocooning body serum is to use the IONIQ One, a device for evenly covering your body in a care product – for example IQ Body for either normal or dry skin. Make sure you also remember to care for your lips, with a high-quality lip balm!
Turn sunscreen into a daily companion
Dry, sunburned skin is something you want to avoid. Consequently, sunscreen should be an essential part of your daily body care. Experts generally suggest applying sunscreen every couple hour, and if you have particularly dry skin, also some moisturizer for optimal care. We recommend Ioniq Sun with SPF 15, 30 and 50. A good after sun lotion also helps to repair and hydrate your skin after sunbathing. A key factor in sun protection is to correctly apply the sunscreen and in an adequate amount. IONIQ One solves this problem for you, by applying the perfect amount easily, quickly and best of all – without messy hands!
IONIQ to the rescue of your skin
Changing your daily routines could also help to keep your skin happy. Simple things, such as avoiding a boiling hot shower, using a fan instead of air conditioning and switching out care products containing alcohol, could all make a huge difference on your skin. Consistency is key, especially regarding body care!
