Recharging Your Skin's Moisture on Vacation
The vacation season is upon us, and the delightful summer is here. You must be excited about going to beautiful vacation spots and enjoying your summer break. However, you may also worry about your skin getting damaged by the intense sunlight.
Summer can be challenging with its scorching heat and outdoor activities that easily deplete your body's hydration. UV rays can harm your skin's surface and its ability to retain moisture and maintain pH balance. To protect your skin and keep it hydrated, remember these essential tips for recharging your skin's moisture during your vacation
1. Hydrate with Moisture-Rich Foods
Include hydrating foods like cucumbers and watermelons in your diet. Cucumbers, with their 95% water content, are a refreshing treat after a workout. They are low in calories and high in potassium, helping with excretion of waste in your body. Watermelon, another high-water content fruit, helps keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. The component 'beta-carotene' found in watermelon prevents skin cell damage, and the red pigment 'lycopene' acts as an antioxidant, helping tired and fatigued skin during the summer.
2. High-Concentration Moisture Care with ‘Deep sea Water’
Deep sea water, found beneath the surface water at a depth of 200 meters where sunlight doesn't reach, is abundant in various minerals and nutrients, providing powerful moisturizing effects. Using skincare products such as ‘The Skin house Marine Active Serum,’ which utilize clean and nutrient-rich deep sea water, can deliver moisture deep into your skin. These products often contain ceramides, which enhance moisture absorption and fortify the skin's protective barrier.
3. Stay Hydrated Outdoors with a Water Bottle
On days with prolonged outdoor activities, ensure you bring enough water with you. Carry a tumbler filled with ice and refreshing water to stay hydrated. Insufficient water intake can lead to dehydration, which can accelerate skin aging and hinder the proper elimination of wastes from the body. Be cautious with drinks like coffee and green tea, which contain caffeine, as they can increase the excretion of water from the body. If you consume a cup of coffee, it's advisable to drink 1.5 times its amount in water to rehydrate your body.
4. Soothe Sunburn Skin with Aloe Vera
If your skin gets sunburned and turns red due to intense sunlight and UV exposure, you should take emergency measures to calm it down for a faster recovery. Applying aloevera-based skincare products from the refrigerator can have a cooling and moisturizing effect. "The Skin House Aloe Fresh Serum" provides a refreshing and moisturizing sensation, making it a good option to apply after outdoor activities. You can also use "The Skin House Aloe Fresh Toner" on a cotton pad, place it on your face for about 20 minutes, and use it as a soothing face mask.
5. Restore Your Skin's Balance After Sun Exposure
Healthy skin maintains a slightly acidic pH level ranging from 5.5 to 5.9, which forms a protective layer on the skin's surface, ensuring proper hydration and oil balance. Normal skin possesses a defense mechanism that can restore the original pH level within a short period after exposure to irritants. However, continuous exposure to irritants weakens this protective function, leading to various skin problems. ‘The Skin House Vital pH Balance Gel Cleanser’ not only helps rebalance the skin's pH but also excludes silicones, parabens, mineral oils, artificial dyes, and fragrances, ensuring minimal burden on the skin. It preserves essential moisture while removing impurities. If you experience frequent keratinization and dryness during the summer, using The Skin House Vital pH Balance Gel Cleanser can help restore your skin to a healthy state.
