Protected and Hydrated Skin Under the Sun: The Beach Kit that cannot be missing from your skincare

Pelle Protetta e Idratata Sotto il Sole: Il Kit da Spiaggia che non può mancare nella skincare

As summer approaches, days at the beach represent a perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy the sun. However, to keep your skin healthy and protected, it is essential to have a beach kit that combines sun protection and post-sun hydration. In this article, we will explore the importance of sun protection, the benefits of hydration after sun exposure and how a beach kit that includes an SPF 50 spray sun milk, a hyaluronic acid after-sun body serum with tan activator , contained in a practical blue summer clutch bag, can be the ideal companion for your summer holidays.

The Importance of Sun Protection: UV Rays and Skin Damage

Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are a major cause of skin damage. Prolonged, unprotected exposure to UV rays can lead to sunburn, premature skin aging, sun spots and an increased risk of skin cancer. UV rays are divided into three main categories:

  • UVA: They penetrate deeply into the skin and are responsible for skin aging and wrinkles.
  • UVB: Causes sunburn and can damage the DNA of skin cells, increasing the risk of skin cancer.
  • UVC: They are absorbed by the atmosphere and do not reach the earth's surface.

Essential beach skincare

Essential beach skincare can consist of just two products:

  1. A sunscreen with a high SPF of 850+ is ideal) to be refreshed after each bath to maintain constant coverage throughout the day and avoid sunburn.
  2. A highly hydrating after-sun product, preferably in serum for better hydration and a feeling of freshness, always pleasant after a day at the beach.

Before Sun Exposure

1. Application of Spray Sun Milk SPF 50 : Spray the sun milk generously on all exposed areas of the skin at least 15 minutes before exposure to the sun. Make sure to completely cover all areas, including your face, neck, ears and feet.

2. Reapplication of Sun Milk : Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming, sweating or towel drying to maintain optimal protection.

After Sun Exposure

1. Refreshing Shower : After a day at the beach, always take a refreshing shower to remove salt, sand and sunscreen residue.

2. Application of the After Sun Body Serum : Apply the serum all over the body, massaging gently until completely absorbed. The serum not only hydrates the skin, but thanks to the tan activator, it helps to prolong and even out the color.

The products we recommend are included in the Sun Set Care Kit , namely:

Hydrasun Sun Milk Spray SPF 50

Hydrasun Sun Milk Spray SPF 50 is a fundamental component of any beach kit. This type of sunscreen offers an effective barrier against UVA and UVB rays, reducing the risk of skin damage. The SPF 50 means the product protects the skin from around 98% of UVB rays, making it ideal for long days outdoors.

Aftertan Antioxidant Body Serum with Tanning Activator

Aftertan Antioxidant Body Serum with tan activator is perfect for hydrating and soothing the skin after a day in the sun. Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin, offering intense, long-lasting hydration. Furthermore, this serum contains a tan activator that stimulates the production of melanin, helping to achieve an even and long-lasting tan.

Why Moisturize Your Skin After Sun Exposure

Exposure to the sun and salt water can cause dehydration of the skin, leading to dryness, flaking and irritation. Post-sun hydration is essential to restore the skin's water balance, soothe any sunburn and keep the skin supple and soft.

But what is the role of the tan activator?

Melanin is the skin's natural pigment that offers protection against UV damage and gives it its tan color. The tan activator is an ingredient included in the Aftertan Body Serum that stimulates the production of melanin, allowing the skin to tan faster and more evenly. This not only improves the aesthetic appearance of your tan, but can also offer additional natural protection against UV rays.

This ingredient has several advantages:

  1. Even Tan: The tan activator helps to achieve an even color across the entire body.
  2. Tan Prolongation: By stimulating the production of melanin, the tan obtained will last longer.
  3. Natural Protection: A greater quantity of melanin offers natural protection against UV rays, reducing the risk of sunburn.

Preparing for a beach holiday doesn't just mean choosing the perfect swimsuit, but also taking care of your skin properly. By incorporating these products into your skincare, you will be able to enjoy the sun safely and obtain an even, long-lasting tan.
