Skincare Tips Before You Hit The Beach

Summer – the season for fresh produce, sunshine, ice-cream and of course holidays. If you are planning to hit the beach this season and get your dose of Vitamin Sea, do not forget to protect your skin from the harmful Ultraviolet rays with the following skincare tips.

Use sunscreen

The first thing without which you should not step out of your house is a good sunscreen product. Sunscreen not only acts as an outer protective layer over your skin against harmful sun rays, but also repairs the already damaged skin cells to reveal your natural beauty. For dry and harsh summers of India, you can try the L'Oréal UV Perfect Matte & Fresh that is an expert UV protection product and is perfect for Indian summers. It contains mattified kaolin clay which absorbs excess sweat and is perfect for all types of skin even in maximum humidity. Apply this UV protection sunscreen at least 15-20 min before stepping out into the sun and keep applying it every few hours if you plan to stay out for a prolonged period.


Use Anti-ageing solutions

Excessive exposure to the harmful rays of the sun can damage your skin cells in twice the amount of speed. While on the beach, you should concentrate more on nourishing your skin rather than applying makeup. You can look for products that have active ingredients to remove the impurities and dullness of your skin, while also helping your skin recover. Products like L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is rich with anti-ageing products that can work wonders for your skin. Ingredients like Salicylic acid that accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture. With regular use, you will find your skin looking brighter, youthful and glowing.


Care for your eye too

While caring for your skin, also safeguard your eyes and lips from the harsh winds and sun rays on the beach. The area around the eyes, called the eye contour, is delicate and thin that can be damaged by the sand granules and sea salt. Apply an eye contour cream that would act as a defense mechanism to fight the harsh sun rays.



For a clear and glowing skin, follow a simple skincare regime before you go to the beach. Start off by removing your dead cells through scrubbing and exfoliating with a good body scrub. You might have to work hard on your elbow and knees where there is a maximum accumulation of dead skin cells. Scrub off any residue of dead skin with a towel, and once dried, apply a nourishing lotion that is suitable for your skin type.

Spending time on the beach is fun and relaxing with the soothing sounds of the waves and clear skies. However, it can prove harmful for your skin if you do not protect it against the harsh sun rays and wind. These skincare tips can help you enjoy your vacation without worrying about any skin damage.
