After Beach Skin Care: How to Take Care of Your Skin After a Day at the Beach


Thank you to Tone for sponsoring today's post! As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support me!

Vitamin Sea is good for the soul and I'm a firm believer that we ALL need (and deserve!) some fun sun time and relaxing beach days. Beach days are the best days and for me, happiness comes in the form of waves! I know I can't be the only one, but I also know I can't be the only one who spends endless hours at the beach. As amazing as a day by the ocean can be for your physical, mental and even emotional health, it's extremely important to make sure that all of these good vibes don't take a toll on your skin. The power that the sun can have on your skin is no secret (as I sit here with sunburn on my forehead, eeesh!) so making sure that you take care of your skin to maintain its natural glow, healthiness and hydration is extremely important.

Even when you use SPF and take precautions in the sun (which you always should be doing, obvi!) it's still important to give your skin what it needs to heal and stay healthy!


Shower and Cleanse


After a day at the beach I love to jump in the pool, it's so refreshing especially on a hot day! Post-being in the sun all day with layers of SPF and tanning oil, sand and salt water (and chlorine if you're like me) all over your body, nothing is better than a refreshing shower! It's so important to use a soothing soap for your skin, and especially so if you've gotten any sun burn. When it comes to cleansing, using a product that's not drying and soothing for your skin is crucial! Your skin needs lots of TLC after spending a day in the sun and my very favorite cleanser/body wash to use in the shower is the Brazilian Glam Nourishing Body Wash by Tone! It comes in so many scents and this girl looooves a good summer scent! I use it after every beach or pool day and it's extremely soothing. I use the Blissful Awakening Energizing Body Wash in the mornings - it has a vanilla/coffee bean scent and it's great for early mornings before heading to the beach. That's the one downside, leaving early to beat traffic for the beach, ha!


These are the perfect body washes to take on beach trips this summer also, Tone prides themselves on making refreshing products that us girls can enjoy using! My morning showers are one of my favorite parts of the day, and that's why I've been using the Blissful Awakening wash every morning. Both cleansers work wonders and there's nothing better than a delicious smelling body wash to scrub away layers of sunscreen to make you feel as clean as a cucumber! ;)

Moisturize


Right after your shower post-beach, it's so important to moisturize your skin thoroughly! The Tone body washes are extremely helpful in making moisturizing simple and quick because they help soften your skin and maintain that glow! Between salt water and the sun beating down on you, your skins moisture quite literally is sucked right out. I *love* the Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion and how moisturizing it is. It's great because you don't have that sticky lotion feeling but you still get the moisture your skin needs after a day in the sun! Any body moisturizer you like to use works - as long as you apply it right after your shower so that your skin soaks in the moisture as you dry off.

Whether you have sun burn or just a nice tan, the other product you need to moisturize your after-sun skin with is the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration moisturizer. I talk about this stuff all the time (most recently it was in my Currently Cravings for June!) and I can't rave about it enough. It has cooling aloe in it and works great with the nourishing Tone body washes.


Apply leave-in conditioner and de-tangle your hair


Just like your skin, your hair needs some love too after being in the sun! After washing, apply a leave-in conditioner (I loove this Moroccan Oil Hydrating Leave-In conditioner!) after de-tangling. Especially if you have longer hair!

Hydrate


Hanging out in the sand in your cute new bathing suit may mean forgetting to drink lots of water, but once you're back home and have taken care of your skin with your new favorite body wash (seriously, once you try these out you'll know why I'm never going back to another wash again!) you can re-fuel with all of the water you need. And trust me, after being in the sun you need a LOT more than normal! Drinking lots of water and staying hydrated is also a great way to reduce the appearance of sunburn (I speak from experience, #sigh). It also makes you feel a lot better - that tired post-sun feeling is NO joke!


Calm your lips


A lot of us neglect our lips in the sun; meanwhile it's SO important to pay attention to them! Salt water, chlorine and sun alike can do damage to your lips. Find a soothing lip balm you love that works well and apply it every night - and an extra application when you've been in the sun.


Making sure your skin is a top priority after lots of fun in the sun can really be like some extra self-care relaxation after an already relaxing day! The Tone body washes are the perfect addition to your summer skincare routine and you'll LOVE how soothing they are for your skin! There's so many scents available to choose from - make sure you check out their Instagram for more on the products and some serious color inspo. ;)

Is your post-beach skin routine similar? Anything you'd add? :)
