Say Goodbye to Dry Summer Skin

Say Goodbye to Dry Summer Skin

Say hello to the season of fun and adventure: summer. With plenty of outdoor activities available, “summer fun” is totally a true phase. The downside? The extra time spent in the sun and water can take a toll on you and your little one’s skin, especially if you already are prone to dry skin. What makes it all worse is that dry skin in the summer can be especially painful and uncomfortable. But have no fear – we put together a few tips and tricks so you can protect your skin all summer long. 

So what may be causing this extra dryness? Dehydration may be one big reason for your dry skin crisis during the summer. The sun causes you to sweat more and lose fluids faster, which can lead to dry, flaky skin. Fight this by upping that water intake throughout the day (yes, we mean truly aim for those famous eight glasses). We also recommend avoiding sugary or alcoholic drinks as much as possible – so put those daiquiris on hold for now!

Another culprit of dry skin in the summer is chlorine. If you spend a lot of time in the pool, the chlorine can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and itchy. It is super important to apply a moisturizing lotion or oil before and after swimming, like our magical Sweet Bee. And it is great for the little ones too! 

And the final dry skin criminal? Sunburn. When your skin is burned, it becomes inflamed and loses moisture, which can lead to painful peeling. Always make sure to use the right sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every time you go outside (this includes even cloudy days!). It is also super important to reapply the sunscreen every two hours, or even more often if you're swimming or sweating.

There’s many reasons why your skin may be extra dry in the summer. Prepare for the season of fun now so your skin doesn’t stop you during the warm weather months.
