Keep reading to see our tips to achieve glowing, healthy skin and be ready to turn heads on the sand.
1. Exfoliate your skin to remove any dead cells
We all want our skin to look and feel its best, but sometimes it can be difficult to get rid of dead skin cells. Exfoliation is a key step in any skincare routine, as it helps to remove dead skin cells and allow new ones to grow in their place. Our coffee scrub is a great option for exfoliating the skin, as coffee beans are naturally abrasive and can help to slough away dead cells. In addition, coffee contains antioxidants that can help to protect the skin from damage. For best results, exfoliate your body once or twice a week in the shower using our coffee scrub.
And you can't forget about the skin on your face! Our Macchiato Foaming Cleansing Scrubber strikes the perfect balance between cleansing and exfoliating. The innovative soft, silicone scrubber tip gently scrubs your skin with our foaming cleanser for a double punch of deep cleaning, leaving your skin to appear soft, glowy, and smooth to the touch!
2. Apply a light moisturizer to help keep your skin hydrated
Everyone knows that it's important to keep your skin hydrated for that glowy look, but it can be tricky to figure out exactly how to do that. A good rule of thumb is to choose a light moisturizer, like our dreamy Cloud Soft Bod, that will help to keep your skin hydrated without feeling too heavy or greasy. Body butter is also a great option for those with dry skin, as it helps to lock in moisture and keep your skin smooth, soft, and healthy. It's also important to remember that you don't need to use a lot of product - a little goes a long way!
Don’t forget about the delicate skin under your eyes. Keep this area hydrated before your beach day with a lightweight eye serum that will help reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines to keep your skin looking young and fresh.
3. Prep your face for sunscreen with a Vitamin C serum
Vitamin C is a great way to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays when layered with a good SPF sunscreen. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which can damage the skin. It also helps to boost the production of collagen, which gives the skin its elasticity. Furthermore, Vitamin C helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A Vitamin C serum should be applied before sunscreen for extra protection, which will help to create a barrier on the skin that will deflect the sun's rays. The sunscreen will provide an additional layer of protection against the sun's harmful rays, so you can protect your glow!
4. Use a bronzer or self-tanner to give your skin a sun-kissed glow
There's nothing like a beach day to make you feel alive and refreshed. The sun, the sand, the waves... and of course, the tan. But getting that perfect beach tan can be tricky. If you stay in the sun for too long, you risk getting burned. But if you don't stay in long enough, you'll just end up with a light dusting of color. So how can you get that enviable sun-kissed glow without spending hours baking in the sun?
The answer is simple: use a bronzer or self-tanner. Bronzers come in powder, cream, and gel form and can be applied directly to the skin. They give an instant boost of color and can be easily customized to create your desired look. Self-tanners, on the other hand, work with your body's chemistry to gradually deepen your natural skin tone. They're perfect for those who want a more natural look or who are looking to build up their tan over time. So next time you're headed to the beach, don't forget to pack your bronzer or self-tanner!
5. Put on some sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's rays
Summer is the perfect time to hit the beach and soak up some sun. However, it's important to remember that too much sun can damage your skin. UV rays can cause sunburns, premature aging, and even skin cancer. That's why it's SO important to put on sunscreen before heading outdoors. Make sure to choose a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply it every two hours or after swimming or sweating. By taking these simple steps, you can help protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
Whether you’re hitting the beach or just want to glow up for a summer party, getting your skin ready is key. We hope our tips have given you some ideas on how to get that sun-kissed, glowy look just in time for National Beach Day. And if you need a new towel for the beach, all orders over $200 come with a complimentary Callyssee beach towel!
