Summer Skincare Essentials: Protecting Your Skin in the Holiday Season

As the temperatures rise and the sun shines brighter, our skincare routine needs a seasonal shift to combat the effects of the summer months. At Bossa Skin, we understand the significance of safeguarding your skin during this time, and we've curated a collection of essentials to keep your skin glowing and healthy.

Antioxidants: Your Pre-Sunscreen Essential

Before diving into the SPF talk, let's shed light on a crucial step often overlooked—antioxidants. Our Vitamin C Serum stands tall as a hero in this category. Why? Because antioxidants are like a shield against free radicals, helping prevent sun damage and supporting the effectiveness of your sunscreen. Vitamin C is an SPF's best friend, providing optimal protection when paired together outdoors. No need to fret, many of our clients believe that sun exposure should be avoided when using actives. But fear not, Vitamin C remains perfectly safe when used with SPF.

Hydraboost B: The Environmental Shield

The Hydraboost B is a hydrating serum fortified with protecting antioxidants. It's not just any serum; it's clinically proven to slow down UV damage and creates a shield against environmental aggressors. Think of it as your skin's invisible armor against the harsh summer rays.

Sun Protection: Your Daily Defender

For everyday protection, our Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 30 is your go-to. It's lightweight and perfect for daily wear. But, when you're hitting the beach or pool, Liv Portugal, our founder and skincare expert, advises opting for a waterproof zinc-based SPF like Sunny Skin Zinc SPF50 or Avocado Zinc for that extra protection.

Beauty Water Mist: Hydration on-the-go

In the scorching heat, a quick spritz of our Beauty Water Mist is a lifesaver. Packed with hydration and antioxidants, it refreshes your skin and hair, making it a summer essential you'll reach for all day long.

Travel-Friendly Skincare

We understand the need for convenience, especially during summer getaways. That's why we've crafted a 60ml Cleansing Gel, perfect for tossing into your travel bag for effortless skincare on the go.

Sunburn Recovery: Nourish and Soothe

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, sunburns happen. Fear not! Liv recommends our Hydraboost B Serum coupled with the Hydrating Lotion and the Ipanema Glow Oil for skin recovery. The Hydraboost's Hyaluronic Acid and Calendula work wonders in calming the skin, while the Ipanema Glow Oil, enriched with jojoba oil, aids in skin recovery by creating a protective barrier.

Summer brings joy and warmth, but it also requires extra care for your skin. With our array of summer skincare essentials, Bossa Skin ensures that you can embrace the sunshine while keeping your skin healthy and radiant. Make these products your summer companions and let your skin glow amidst the heat!

Holiday Skincare Routine Made Easy:

Morning Routine:

  1. Cleansing: Start your day by cleansing your skin with our gentle Cleansing Gel.
  2. Hydration Boost: Spritz on the refreshing Beauty Water for a burst of hydration.
  3. Antioxidant Protection: Apply the Vitamin C Serum for that essential antioxidant shield.
  4. Environmental Defense: Follow up with the Hydraboost B Serum to shield against environmental stressors.
  5. Sun Protection: Don't forget your SPF! Apply and remember to reapply every two hours or after swimming.

Pro-tip: Before reapplying SPF, dry your skin, spritz on the Beauty Water for antioxidants, and then apply the SPF. Also, consider wearing a UV-protective hat for extra defense.

Body Care: Extend your skincare to your body. Apply sunscreen generously, avoid tanning oils, and keep your skin moisturised. Use the Beauty Water to nourish your body skin as well. Remember, protect your entire body as melanoma, melasma and sun damage can affect any exposed area.

Night Routine:

  1. Thorough Cleansing: Double cleanse your skin using the gentle Cleansing Gel to remove impurities.
  2. Hydrating Boost: Follow up with another spritz of the Beauty Water for added hydration.
  3. Repair and Restore: Apply the Hydraboost B Serum to aid in skin repair overnight.
  4. Deep Hydration: Follow with the Hydrating Lotion to deeply moisturise your skin.
  5. Nourishment: Finish off with the Ipanema Glow Oil to provide nourishment and aid in overnight skin repair.

Remember: While on holiday and exposed to daily sun, it's advisable to avoid using Retinol, which could sensitize your skin. Prioritise repair and hydration with the Hydraboost and Ipanema Glow Oil.

Taking care of your skin on holiday doesn't have to be complicated. Follow this simple routine to keep your skin protected, hydrated, and glowing throughout your vacation. Enjoy the sun responsibly and let your skin shine!
