5 Ways to Keep Your Summer Skin Hydrated

5 Ways to Keep Your Summer Skin Hydrated
Summer can be rough on your skin, and not just because of the heat. The sun's UV rays are harmful to our skin, and as we sweat more during the warmer months, we tend to lose more water. All that means that it's important for us to take extra care of our skin in the summer months. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to keep your summer skin hydrated without having to apply a heavy moisturiser or thick sunscreen every day! From incorporating hydrating foods into your diet and using lightweight facial moisturisers, instead of heavier creams, all the way down to drinking plenty of water throughout the day, these tips will help you and your skin hydrated.

1. Don't forget your SPF

You're not going to want to skip this step. Wearing sunscreen is one of the most important things you can do for your skin in the summer, especially if you have fair or sensitive skin. It helps protect against UV damage.

Here are some tips on how to make sure your SPF routine goes smoothly:

- Choose the right sunscreen for your skin type. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for an oil-free formula that won't clog pores. If you have dry or sensitive skin, or both, go with a moisturizing sunscreen that won't be too heavy under makeup or on top of other skincare products.

- Apply 15 minutes before going outside, and reapply every two hours while outdoors! It can be hard to reapply when wearing makeup, so try carrying a brush with you, put some SPF on your hand, dab the brush in the SPF, and then gently dab it on your face, this way you won't ruin your makeup and you'll still be protected against the sun.

2. Drink plenty of water

The second way to keep your summer skin hydrated is by drinking plenty of water. Water helps your body regulate its temperature and maintain balance, it also flushes out toxins and keeps you feeling energized throughout the day.

To make sure you're getting enough H20 in your system, try drinking at least 1 liter per day! If it's hot outside and/or you're exercising, try having more water!

3. Use a lightweight moisturiser

Another way to keep your skin hydrated this summer is to use a lightweight moisturiser. Some products will have an SPF of at least 30 and contain antioxidants, hyaluronic acid or peptides that can help keep your skin looking youthful and plump.

You don't need to spend too much money on these products, you just need one with good ingredients that won't clog your pores or irritate sensitive skin.

4. Eat hydrating foods

Eating hydrating foods is a great way to keep your skin hydrated. The best sources of water are fruits and vegetables, so make sure you're getting plenty of those in your diet.

If you want a more direct approach toward increasing moisture on the surface of your skin, look for foods that contain hyaluronic acid or collagen, two ingredients that work together in helping to keep your skin in good condition. Foods rich in hyaluronic acid include cucumbers, avocados, tomatoes, celery, spinach, lemons, and sweet potatoes. Collagen-rich foods include beef bone broth, skin-on chicken, sardines, and berries. If you find it hard to eat enough of these foods, try adding a collagen powder to your diet.

5. Use a marine collagen powder in your water to hydrate skin on the go

For those who want to keep their skin hydrated on the go, adding marine collagen powder in your water is a great way to do so. This will help keep your skin moisturized and glowing all summer long! Sacred Glow Co.'s marine collagen powder contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin c which help with skin moisture and hydration.

Try adding our mixed berry or tropical flavoured marine collagen to your water to sip throughout the day. We recommend adding the collagen powder to room temperature water, so it mixes in easier, and then adding ice cubes to make it more refreshing.

These tips can help you keep your skin hydrated all day long

The sun's rays can be damaging, so make sure you wear an SPF and drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated throughout the summer, if you struggle to drink plenty of water, add our marine collagen as flavouring. A light moisturiser with SPF is also a good idea if you want to protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays without feeling too heavy on the skin.


With the help of these tips, you can keep your skin hydrated and healthy all summer long. Whether it's applying a light moisturiser before going outside or drinking plenty of water throughout the day, there are plenty of ways to make sure that your skin stays hydrated even when temperatures are high
