Calling all summer lovers, this one’s for you. If you plan to relax in the sun and lay out on the beach this summer, it’s vital to make sure your skin stays protected and hydrated. While a day of snorkelling, hiking or lounging by the pool is amazing for lifting your spirits – it can be quite drying on your skin, because the sunshine can draw much-needed moisture out of your skin.

Aside from wearing a wide-brimmed sun hat and making sure you apply your SPF regularly, there are other measures you can take to make your skin love the summer as much as you do.

 

Stick to a consistent skincare regimen – one that includes rich hydration and natural nourishment. This will help keep your skin looking healthy and radiant all season long.

 

Step 1: Fresh Cleanse

Prep your quenched skin with a burst of natural freshness using one of Raw Sugar’s uplifting body washes. Wash away the day’s salt and sand without extracting any moisture from your skin. Give your skin the essential nutrients and extracts it needs for lasting health and hydration. Processed through ColdPress Technology, all Raw Sugar’s body washes are designed to keep the good stuff in and leaves skin super clean and soft.

Step 4: Give Your Hair a Drink

Hey, your hair gets thirsty too, so why not let it sip on a hydration-rich smoothie? Raw Sugar’s line of nourishing shampoos, conditioners and lock-loving masque are just what the doctor (or hair stylist) ordered for ​dehydrated ​summer locks. Crafted without parabens and sulfates, and are completely animal cruelty-free, just like all of Raw Sugar’s products, this hair regimen will take your hair from dry and brittle to nourished, bouncy and naturally shiny in no time.
