As we begin to shed the layers and soak up the sun there are certain skincare habits you’ll want to add to your routine. Similar to how everyone is rushing to the nail salon to get a pedicure for sandal season, adding a few body care must-haves to your list can help prep your skin for the sun and your summer wardrobe. From tips to product picks — these are our must-have body care essentials for Summer 2024!

Summer Body Care Tips:

From what to put in and on your body — these self-care tips are essential this season.

  • Hydrate: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. You can also add fruits like watermelon and smoothies packed with water and skin-loving ingredients and antioxidants.
  • Face Mist: For a refreshing midday boost, use a face mist or cooling spray on your body, this can be especially helpful when you’re on holiday or just need a pick-me-up.
  • Light Clothing: Wear lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen that to allow your skin to breathe and reduce irritation.
  • Avoid Peak Sun Hours: Try to stay out of direct sunlight between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
  • Reapply SPF: If you are in the sun, the best way to protect your skin is with consistent applications of SPF. The exact time will be determined by the product you’re using, but early and often is usually best practice.

Summer Body Care Routine:

In the shower (or bath) it’s best to use a gentle, hydrating body wash or body oil to cleanse skin without stopping it of its natural oils. For a moisturizing cleanse and plenty of nourishment, we love adding a Shower & Body Oil like the Bodyography Spa Bath & Body Oil.

 

After your shower, apply a lightweight body oil to damp skin to lock in moisture and give your skin a healthy glow. We love the organic oils + antioxidants in the INSIGHT SKIN Regenerating Body Oil because it helps fight free radicals — an essential element for any skincare ingredient, especially if you’re spending time in the sun!

Whenever you’re out and about, sunscreen is a must — especially during the summer months. So be sure not to skip on it!

In between beach days you’ll also want to add an exfoliating body scrub + body butter to your routine. A scrub will help remove product buildup, dead skin cells and improve circulation as well as tone and texture. We adore the Bodyography Spa Body Scrub especially because of its heavenly Vanilla Sea Salt scent. For a lovely nighttime routine, pair this scrub with a luxurious body butter post-shower. We love the Spa Body Butter because of its rich oils that visibly restores and improves skin elasticity, especially as the perfect way to end your day in the sun!
