by Bettina Miski on Aug 21, 2023
Hydration is key to many skin and health-related diseases. And as the summer heat intensifies, paying extra attention to it is crucial. Staying adequately hydrated during the hot months maintains optimal body functions, not to mention that it promotes a glowing complexion! Keep reading to learn how to keep your body and skin refreshed, revitalized, radiant, and hydrated all summer.
The “H” In Hydration Stands For Health
Hydration plays a vital role in regulating body temperature, helping proper digestion, promoting nutrient absorption, and supporting organ health in general. In summer, when we lose more fluids through sweat, replenishing and maintaining hydration levels is crucial. By keeping your body well-hydrated, you'll enjoy improved energy levels and better focus. So “drink more water” isn’t just a nag you keep hearing from everywhere, it is indeed crucial for your overall well-being.
Water, Your BFF
Nothing beats water when it comes to staying hydrated. The actual recommended amount of daily water varies from person to person, but aim to drink plenty and increase your intake during outdoor activities or when sweating more. Carry a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go to ensure a constant supply of refreshing hydration. And try to limit yourself when it comes to dehydrating beverages like alcohol and caffeinated drinks, as they can increase fluid loss.
Pick A Hydrating Snack
In the summer heat, we tend to crave lighter, fresher food. Your body knows what it needs, so listen to it and incorporate hydrating snacks into your diet. Enjoy fruits and vegetables with high water content, such as watermelon, cucumber, citrus fruits, and leafy greens. These not only hydrate but also provide essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for radiant skin and a healthy body.
Foundation Of Healthy Skin
Speaking of which, proper hydration is the cornerstone of healthy skin. It helps maintain the skin's moisture balance, enhances its natural functions, and keeps it plump and supple. Besides hydration from within, it is also crucial to choose products that will protect your skin from the summer season’s stripping effects. A good start to that is a hydrating cleanser you can trust. Try Klairs' Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser for an extra boost. It’s refreshing and feels light on the skin, yet effectively removes impurities and provides rich hydration.
SPF Is Still The Hero Of Your Skin
Sunscreen is not just for sun protection; it also maintains skin hydration. UV rays can drain the skin's moisture levels, leading to dryness and damage. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with moisturizing properties. And no need to worry, lightweight formulations like Klairs All-day Airy Sunscreen will give you that result without any greasiness. This sunscreen provides excellent sun protection while keeping your skin hydrated and nourished. And as a little extra, it will also help to smooth out your fine lines.
Nourish Your Skin On The Go
Just like your body, your skin craves moisture and nourishment during the day. Drop a face mist in your bag, and you’ll be always ready to fight the summer heat. Something light and refreshing like the Klairs Fundamental Ampule Mist will revitalize you and boost your skin’s hydration any time during the day! If you pick it up in our Lightly Hydrating Set, you can also add Klairs Fundamental Watery Oil Drop to your summer routine. It has a watery texture so a perfect nourishing addition to your set during hot days to boost hydration and radiance.
Remember that hydration is key to maintaining healthy, radiant skin during summer. And besides your skincare routine, that also means maintaining proper water intake! Keep the above in mind, and you’ll be ready to glow through the heat of summer.
