NATURAL TIPS FOR GLOWING SUMMER SKIN
As the sun embraces our skin during the summer months, it becomes crucial to prioritise after sun care to replenish and nourish the skin. We’ve put together some suggestions to soothe and rejuvenate sun-exposed skin:
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: After spending time in the sun, replenishing lost moisture is vital. Drinking plenty of water will hydrate your body from within. This simple yet effective step helps restore the skin's moisture balance, promoting a healthy and supple complexion.
- Gentle cleansing: Choose a mild, non-irritating cleanser like Bondi Wash Body Wash to gently cleanse your skin after sun exposure. Opt for products that don’t strip away natural oils, as they help maintain the skin's protective barrier. A gentle cleanse removes sweat, sunscreen, and impurities without further compromising your skin's delicate balance.
- Cold compress: Treat your skin to a cooling sensation by applying a cold compress or a chilled, damp cloth to sun-exposed areas. This technique helps reduce heat and inflammation, providing instant relief and aiding in the skin's recovery process.
- Hydrating ingredients: Pamper your skin with a moisturizer enriched with naturally hydrating ingredients such as shea butter, avocado oil and jojoba oil. Applying these nourishing moisturisers helps restore the skin's barrier and replenishes moisture lost due to sun exposure. Our 100% naturally derived Body Lotion is packed with hydrating ingredients plus Australian super-plant Flame Tree to maintain firmness and elasticity of the skin. It is fragranced with our cooling Sydney Peppermint & Rosemary essential oil blend to help soothe skin that has been exposed to sunshine.
- Lip care: Don’t forget to protect and nourish your lips after spending time in the sun. Look for balms with natural ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, or coconut oil to keep your lips hydrated and prevent dryness. Bondi Wash Lip Balm is made with natural ingredients and is infused with refreshing Australian native botanical scents, offering a soothing and nourishing experience for your lips.
- Overnight recovery: Utilise the evening to aid your skin's recovery process. Choose an overnight facial treatment or mask like the Bondi Wash Purifying Night Balm designed to repair and rejuvenate sun-exposed skin. Look for formulations containing antioxidants and vitamins, such as vitamin C or E, to help restore radiance and support the skin's natural healing mechanisms.
