How to protect your skin during summer?

Negative effects of the sun's rays

Did you know that the skin is the largest organ of our body? As such, it is exposed to various external influences and represents our most important protection. In order to maintain this shield, we must take special care of the skin, especially in time of extremely high or low temperature. During the summer, with increased UV radiation, excessive sweating and heat, it is necessary to adjust body care in order to avoid unwanted phenomena and hyperpigmentation.

Excessive sun exposure is the main cause of uneven skin (hyperpigmentation). Sunlight actually stimulates the production of melanin in the body, which acts as a natural sun protection for the skin. However, increased melanin production in the body often results in dark spots appearing on the face, hands or other parts of the body. The face, especially the area around the eyes, is always uncovered and thus exposed to the negative effects of the sun's rays.

How to protect your skin during the summer?

The most important thing is to be aware of the sun rays' negative impact on our skin. After that, it is necessary to follow a few simple principles.

1. Hydration of the skin "from the inside"

In order for the skin to receive all the nutritious minerals, it is necessary to drink at least 2 liters of water a day. If you're already thirsty - your body is in a state of dehydration. The best decision you can make is to continuously drink water in small amounts throughout the day. This way, you will always feel fresh, and your body will be hydrated from the inside, which will also reflect on the shiny appearance from the outside.

2. Protection with fashion style

When going out in the sun, especially in the afternoon, be sure to wear a cap or hat and sunglasses. Also, due to the high temperatures and increased sweating, wider, more comfortable and thin clothes are more than desirable.

3. Rich nutrition

Water is not the only way to hydrate our body from the inside. About 20% of the water we enter our body also comes from the food we consume during the day. It is very important to choose healthy food full of vitamins and minerals, as well as to eat fruits and vegetables.

4. Real refreshment - a cold shower

If you feel ready enough, you can try taking a cold shower. However, if that doesn't suit you at all, at least try to lower the temperature of the water you normally use in the shower. A cold shower will revive your cells, stimulate circulation and activate natural processes within the body that greatly affect your skin.

5. Exfoliate regularly

Help the skin renew itself naturally with regular facial and body exfoliation. A weekly routine of cleaning and caring for the skin accelerates the process of removing dead cells and impurities that lead to a healthy appearance of your skin. We recommend exfoliating the face and body 2-3 times a week.

Deep pore cleansing peeling - Zeopeel

Zeopeel is a face peeling that is recommended to be used in the summer. One of the reasons is because Zeopeel provides quality facial skin care. This peeling pulls out harmful substances and replaces them with nourishing minerals. It is enriched with macadamia oil, which restores damaged and burnt parts of the skin and makes Zeopeel the perfect choice for even the most sensitive skin.

The peeling is kept on a clean face for 10 to 15 minutes, after which it is washed off with water. When the peeling phase is over, the skin needs to be additionally cared for with a specific cream. Learn more about Zeopeel by clicking on the link: deep peeling.
