Summer Body Care: Healthy Skin Without Any Discomfort
by Bettina Miski on Jul 10, 2023
Summer is officially here! The increased sun exposure, and change in the weather require some extra attention in your skincare routine. And we don’t mean only your facial routine. During the sweaty and warm days, we tend to neglect our body care, being afraid of just adding an extra layer of stickiness to our skin.
Of course, nobody wants to deal with that, but we can’t forget about proper hydration and protection on these sunny days either! Let’s dive into the essentials for achieving healthy, radiant skin all over your body without any summery discomfort. We will help you embrace the upcoming heat with a confident routine!
Keep Protecting Your Skin – And Not Just Your Face!
It’s time to level up your sun protection game! We know you are all trying hard to remember to apply and reapply sunscreen 365 days a year by now. But do you keep your entire body in mind? Remember to generously apply sunscreen to all exposed areas of your body. Including the often neglected areas like the back of your neck, ears, tops of your feet, arms, etc. Don’t let those sneaky UV rays ruin your fun this summer!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Dehydration has negative effects on your health, and can also have a negative impact on your skin. So drink plenty of water throughout the day. Besides keeping you safe, refreshed, and healthy during the day, it will also help maintain your skin's elasticity and flush out toxins, promoting a clear and glowing complexion.
Choose The Correct Body Wash
We all know how vital a proper cleansing routine is for a clean and youthful glow on our faces. Yet we often forget to apply the same thought process to our body routine and think whatever body wash will do its job under the shower. This step is essential in removing all the residue, sweat, and stickiness from your skin, and to avoid inflammation and dullness. Choose a body wash with hydrating ingredients to soothe your skin, and to make sure you don’t strip away any moisture.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
Speaking of moisture. We already covered that you should be drinking plenty of water, but outer hydration is also important for your skin. Instead of skipping your body lotion during summer because you want to avoid extra stickiness in the heat, simply switch to a lightweight formulation! Opt for products with clean and natural ingredients that absorb quickly and apply right after showering to lock in that moisture. Keeping this step in your routine will help to restore you’re skin’s natural moisture barrier that can easily get irritated by strong AC, constantly wiping your sweat or even the salty water on a beach holiday.
Skybottle focuses on providing lightweight care for your entire body routine, from body lotions, hand creams, lip care products, body and hair mist, and even body washes. Its clean and green ingredients absorb fast and have no sticky finish which makes it a perfect choice for the summer. And if that’s not enough, its unique fragrances cover up sweat and body odor. You can choose from the subtle fruitiness of a fig, the citrusy freshness of a grapefruit, or the flowery luxuriousness of bergamot and tuberose.

Their fragrance-free line will keep your body moisturized and refreshed with the same quality during the hot summer days as their scented versions.
By following these tips, not skipping on hydration, and picking the right products for the season, you can ensure that your body stays healthy, radiant, and well-nourished throughout the summer. And of course, remember to prioritize sun protection beyond your face, and keep all exposed areas of your body in mind.
