Who doesn’t love summertime? Sunshine. BBQs. The beach. Despite the beautiful weather and outdoor activities, the summer sun can take a toll on your skin’s moisture. Dryness. Sunburn. You name it. Luckily, we know a few great (and simple!) ways to help you maintain hydrated summer skin throughout the season.
Top 3 Ways to Keep Your Skin Hydrated Through Summer
1) Wear Sunscreen, Even on Those Cloudy Days
The worst sunburn can occur on the cloudiest of days. Despite it being overcast and cooler, the sun’s rays can still impact your skin. Make sure to use an SPF moisturizer to protect your face and a higher SPF to cover other exposed areas. Better to be safe than sorry!

Exfoliation is a great method to remove rough, dry areas of skin and should be done 1-2 times a week for best results. Baking soda helps balance your skin’s PH levels and is a simple and cost-effective way to exfoliate your skin. Use a small amount mixed with water to apply. Rinse. How smooth is that!
3) Oil UP!
One of the best oils to use on your skin is organic; cold pressed Sunflower oil. The beautiful part about sunflower oil is that it contains an abundant amount of Vitamin E, which heals the skin. Good news! Sunflower oil can be used on the face without fear of irritation, as it ranks a “0” on the comedogenic rating scale. Don’t be afraid to “oil up” and lock in that warm, hydrated glow all summer long.
