The sky appears bluer, the sun brighter, and the air, well, it's the heatwave; summer is in full swing. With the soaring temperatures, comes the risk of health and skin issues for both you and your little one.

How do you plan to ensure your and your baby's skin stays healthy and happy? To guide you through this sunny season, here are some essential tips for summer skincare.

Nutrition and Hydration:

First and foremost, it's essential to make sure you and your little one consume a nutritious and healthy diet during the summer months. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and consuming water-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables helps keep skin moisturized from within and prevents dehydration. Additionally, foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids help protect from sun damage and promote overall skin health. For newborns, avoid giving water before six months of age since breast or formula milk provides an adequate amount of hydration during this time.

Skincare Regime for Adults:

Use a Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen:

Sunscreen is non-negotiable! You should always go for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 40 or higher and generously apply it all over your exposed areas before heading outdoors. Make sure to reapply every two hours, especially if sweating or swimming.

Hydrating Mists:

Keep a hydrating mist handy to cool and refresh your skin on the go. Look for mists that are enriched with the goodness of aloe vera and rose water to intensely soothe and hydrate sun-exposed skin.

Protective Clothing:

Wear breathable and light-colored clothing that covers your skin such as long-sleeved shirts. Make sure to wear sunglasses with UV protection to shield your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun.

Limit Direct Sun Exposure:

During peak hours, limit direct sun exposure, and when outdoors, seek shade whenever possible. Don't forget to hydrate yourself.

After-Sun Care:

After sun exposure, soothe and moisturize your skin with aloe vera gel or a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer to prevent dryness and peeling.

Skincare Regime for Little Ones:

Protective Clothing:

Dress your baby in lightweight, breathable clothing that covers their arms and legs, and don't forget a wide-brimmed hat to protect their face and scalp from the sun.

Keep Cool:

Avoid overheating your baby by keeping them in well-ventilated areas, using fans or air conditioning, and offering frequent breastfeeds or formula feeds to prevent dehydration.

Gentle Bathing Routine:

Use a mild, baby wash and shampoo infused with natural ingredients to cleanse your baby's skin and scalp without stripping away natural oils. Follow up with a moisturizing baby balm to lock in hydration and keep their skin soft and supple.

Baby's Skincare:

Keep your baby's skin nourished and hydrated with moisturizing baby balms, formulated with natural ingredients like shea butter and essential oils to soothe and refresh delicate skin. Babies' skin is 20 times thinner than adults', and a balm is more hydrating than water-based lotions and creams. The unique formula of balms is designed to provide long-lasting hydration and protection, allowing it to outlast typical lotions or creams by nearly two months.

Keep Your Baby Sweat-Free:

Since babies can't regulate their body temperature, they sweat profusely. Keep your little one sweat-free with a talc-free baby powder, enriched with the goodness of natural ingredients like corn starch and oat kernel flour, as they act as good absorbents.
