June 23 is National Hydration Day! Keeping yourself hydrated is essential to keep your entire body in tip-top shape. We all know that drinking water is the most basic and important way to stay hydrated and has numerous health benefits. But in addition to drinking water, which hydrates your body and skin from within, we want to emphasize the importance of hydrating your skin on the outside and how to protect your skin in the summer.
Dry Skin in the Summer
Summertime is an ideal time to be outside, but excessive heat and sun exposure can dry out your skin and cause redness and irritation. We know how painful sunburns are, so it’s important to moisturize when your skin is healing and peels from a sunburn. Wearing sunscreen with a high SPF is essential to prevent sunburn and any dry skin caused by sun or high temperatures.
During the summer, your skin can also dry out after you hit the swimming pool. Chlorine and other chemicals that appear in pools can strip your skin of essential moisture, so make a note to moisturize after your next dip in the pool. Believe it or not, even your indoor air conditioning can lead to dry, dehydrated skin. Daily skin hydration is crucial to keep your skin healthy during the summer—that’s why it’s extra important to fuel your body with good-for-you ingredients, which is the best way to hydrate skin.
VOESH products are always made with vegan, clean, and cruelty-free ingredients that provide numerous benefits for your skin. We’ve rounded up our top products to keep your skin feeling moisturized, protected, and renewed all summer long!
1. Collagen Gloves & Collagen Socks
Since our hands are always exposed and we are constantly touching different surfaces, our skin tends to dry out faster—the same goes for our feet. Whether we’re running errands, working out, or just taking a walk, our feet do a lot of work to keep us moving all day long. Our Collagen Gloves and Collagen Socks are the solution to dry, cracked skin on your hands and feet. These luxurious, intensive treatments are infused with argan oil, collagen, and shea butter for deep conditioning.
After wearing the gloves or socks (or both!) for 15 minutes, you’ll already feel a difference. Let’s face it: the last thing you want when wearing your favorite pair of sandals is for your feet to have flaky skin or rough calluses. So, adding these intensely moisturizing treatments to your summer skincare routine will help retain moisture in both your feet and hands.
2. Pedi in a Box O2 Fizz
Walking around barefoot in the summertime is one of the best feelings ever, but it can really take a toll on your feet. Our Pedi in a Box 5 Step O2 Fizz restores moisture to soften and soothe skin impacted by heat or sun exposure. Plus, this pedi will add some fun to your summer hydration regimen, as it features a detoxifying Fizz Powder that creates a fizzy effect while you soak your feet. Let’s break down the 5 steps:
1. Detox Soak to deodorize and detoxify
2. Fizz Powder to freshen feet and boost your mood
3. Sugar Scrub to gently exfoliate
4. Cream Mask to condition and renew
5. Massage Butter to hydrate and rejuvenate
Make this fizzy pedi part of your summertime routine before or after your next trip to the beach or pool—your feet will feel rejuvenated and hydrated. O2 Fizz also features 3 refreshing scents that are perfect for summer: Lavender Vanilla, Mint Mimosa, and Raspberry Sorbet.
3. Velvet Luxe Vegan Hand & Body Crème
After a long day of swimming, relaxing at the beach, or spending time outdoors, your skin will need a quick refresher. One of the easiest ways to hydrate from head to toe is with our Velvet Luxe Vegan Hand & Body Crème, which you can use all over your body. The non-greasy lotion is enriched with organic virgin olive oil and avocado oil to deeply nourish and leave your skin feeling velvety soft.
Velvet Luxe comes in a variety of different sizes and scents, so it’s easy to customize your experience based on your preferences. Our smaller 3 oz bottles are perfect to leave in your car when you’re on-the-go, while the large 17 oz bottle can sit on your nightstand or bathroom counter.
Create a Summer Skincare Routine
Many people think that dry skin only occurs during the winter, but that couldn’t be further from the truth—it’s incredibly important to moisturize all year. In the summer, sun exposure, chlorine, air conditioning, and a lack of a proper skincare routine can impact your skin’s health. With our restorative hand and foot care products and all-over body lotions, create a summer skincare routine to have hydrated skin all summer long.
