What can you do though? Here are all our tips for perfect, healthy and radiant skin.
PROTECT THE SKIN
Sunbathing is pleasant and gives that tan that illuminates us, making us feel more beautiful.
Solar radiation is however also one of the main causes of skin dehydration with consequences such as premature aging, wrinkles and sun spots.
Depending on your skin type, we can protect ourselves thanks to the wide range of sunscreens on the market. Particular attention needs to be paid to the face, which requires a cream with SPF greater because the skin is more delicate.
For the first few day,s we must always use a cream with a higher protection factor which we can gradually decrease once the skin has darkened.
It is also very important to not sunbathe in the central hours of the day, or between 12 and 16. The risk of sunburn is very high!
These tips are also valid for the mountains, where the sun beats even stronger than at the sea or in the city.
CLEANSE AND HYDRATE
Never forget to cleanse and moisturize your skin in the summer.
In fact, what with sweat, the skin is easily dehydrated, as well as the countless showers that are used to counteract the heat.
The solution is to drink plenty of water during the day (at least 1.5 liters a day) and do not forget to apply a good moisturizer after a shower and at the end of the day.
For your vacation days, you can let yourself be inspired by our numerous and delicious Aquolina body washes, to be combined with the moisturizing creams of the line that help your skin find the right balance.
Let's not forget the skin of the face: we always put a veil of light moisturizer in the morning to prepare the skin for daily make-up and carefully treat it in the evening, following the routine with a good tonic and a nourishing cream. A good serum or eye contour cream is recommend to hydrate this delicate area and keep it young and supple. In addition, a scrub or peeling at least once a week helps the skin to eliminate dead cells, so as to regenerate and appear smoother and more toned.
