Shower Right Away
As soon as you’re back home from the beach, get in the shower to wash off all the salt, sand, sweat, and sunscreen. Use a gentle cleansing product so as to not damage your parched skin. Go for a pH neutral soap or shower gel rich in soothing active ingredients. Avoid any face/body scrubs as they’re often too harsh for skin that has been out in the sun for too long. Wash your hair using a gentle shampoo and repairing conditioner so you do not strip the hair shaft of its natural protection.
Bring Back the Moisture
Calm your skin with a moisturiser that nourishes your skin and gives it a boost of hydration. Apply a generous amount of an after-sun product or a rich body lotion all over your body to soothe your skin. For your face, look for a lightweight moisturizer that provides your skin the hydration without feeling heavy on your skin. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence has a unique water-like consistency that penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin with improved moisture retention. The salicylic acid in the Micro-Essence accelerates skin renewal and mildly exfoliates to refine pores and skin texture. Bring back the shine in your hair and give it a nutritional boost with non-sticky hair oil. Don't overdo it – too much hair oil will make your hair look greasy and flat.
Accentuate Your Sun-kissed Look with Makeup
Highlight your natural sun-kissed face with a non-comedogenic face oil to add a glow-from-within look. Go easy on the base makeup and use a mattifying base to get rid of any excess shine. Apply a light dab of bronzer and a warm peachy blush to emphasize the warm glow on your cheeks. Add a thick coat of mascara for a wide-eyed look and finish your look with a dash of coral or nude lips. You’ve just transformed your natural beach glow to a perfect after-party look.
While soaking up some vitamin D (and Vitamin Sea!) is a great way to spend a lazy day, the sea, sun, and sand can wreak havoc on your skin and hair if uncared for. Replenish your hair and skin after a fun day at the beach with these simple skincare tips and look great.
