We give you a beauty routine to fine-tune your skin, hair, and nails for hot days
Prepare your skin for the sun by hydrating it daily.
With the arrival of spring and good weather, the wide clothes of the last months give way to lighter clothes that reveal more skin. In this time when abundant meals and the good winter life are already noticeable, many people start to think about the same idea every year: how do I prepare for summer?
Now that you are still on time, we offer you a beauty routine with which you can start preparing your skin, body, hair and nails for the sunny days of summer.
Prepare your skin
After winter and after layers and layers of clothing, it is important not to get carried away by the desire to expose your skin to the sun at once and do it little by little. The best thing you can do now that spring is here is to start exfoliating your skin once a week. In this way, you will eliminate impurities and dead cells and get a uniform tan.
Good hydration is essential to prepare your skin for the summer. Take advantage of a moment of the day (after the shower, before bed or when it suits you best) to apply moisturizer.
Also, when the summer season is approaching you will need a cream to help protect your skin from the sun’s rays. Although it all depends on your skin type, look for one that has at least an SPF factor of 15.
Diet is also a good way to prepare the skin for the sun, as well as to avoid premature aging. On the dates when the heat begins to tighten, it is recommended to increase the number of foods rich in beta-carotene and lycopene, which stimulate the production of collagen.
Take care of your nails
Nails are one of the great ones forgotten in the face of summer and one of the most resented. At this time they break more easily, so it is advisable to file them to keep them short. If you are one of those who always have painted nails, before the arrival of good weather it is advisable to leave them for a while to recover from the aggressions of the enamel. If you see they are yellow or dull with a little hand cream you will be able to hydrate them again.
Restore shine to your nails with moisturizing cream.
Prepare your body
Now that spring begins, the dreaded bikini operation also begins for many. If these months you have not relaxed with food and led a sedentary life, you are still in time to change your habits.
But instead of signing up for miracle diets that promise to lose weight in no time, it is best to start eating healthy and get some exercise regularly. In this way, you may not notice the weight loss immediately but you will avoid the dreaded rebound effect.
Change your lifestyle by exercising regularly.
Here we leave you some of the keys when dieting:
Set yourself a realistic goal (loss of kilos), according to the starting situation
Realize that new habits are not temporary but for life
Go on a diet on your own initiative, not motivated by other people
Go to regular medical check-ups to analyse the development of the diet
Continue with the sport when you have lost weight
If it’s a long-term diet, you may be able to treat yourself once in a while
How to prepare your hair
Hair is one of the parts of the body that suffers the most aggression during the summer season. The chlorine in swimming pools, sea salt, and air conditioners make it dry and brittle, making it almost impossible to comb.
To prevent it, the best thing you can do is start preparing your hair for these attacks now that the sunny days are beginning to make their presence known. Protect it with hats when you go outside on hot days and keep it carefully hydrated with keratin products and treatments.
