Dermatocosmetologist Viktoria Britko (Honcharuk) told whether it is possible to use CC-cream on the beach, how to replace thermal water and why it is necessary to take antiseptic wipes with you.

Rule # 1: don't apply foundation
In summer, sweating and sebaceous secretion increase. Sebum, mixing with dust, dirt and keratinized particles, clogs the pores: blackheads and inflammatory elements are formed. Do not "torture" the skin with tonal means. The pigment clogs the pores even more. It is better to take wet wipes with an antiseptic effect to the beach and periodically wipe your face, remembering to renew the product with SPF after that.
If there is absolutely nothing without a base, give preference to CC or BB-cream with a UV factor and a mark "non-comedogenic" (they have less coloring pigment). But do not forget that they also need to be periodically renewed, completely rinsing off the product. We wrote about the best BB and CC creams for the summer here.
Rule # 2: Give Preference to Products That Retain Moisture
Under the influence of sunlight, moisture actively evaporates in the skin surface. To avoid dehydration, look for moisturizing ingredients in SPF treatments: hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and vitamin E.
Rule # 3: Apply thermal water only in the shade
Thermal water can be applied to both cleansed face and makeup - make-up artists even advise to do this to give it resistance. It contains a large amount of minerals, micro and macro elements that are beneficial to the skin and has good moisturizing properties. You can apply thermal water without restrictions (we wrote about the best face sprays here).
Rule # 4: don't apply body cream to your face
Face cream and body cream have different textures - the latter can be too dense and heavy. Choose a protection product after calculating the required SPF level (you can read about how to do this here).
Rule # 5: before going to the beach, drink a glass of water and apply a moisturizing mask
At resorts, the risk of dehydration is high. You need to moisturize your skin not only from the outside. Before going to the beach, drink a glass of water, apply any moisturizing mask for 10-15 minutes, and only then go to sunbathe.
Rule # 6: Use After Sun Cream
After tanning, be sure to cleanse your skin and apply a special product on it to help soothe the skin. Look for chamomile extract, aloe, peptides. If the cream is not at hand, you can use panthenol.
Rule # 7: don't use facial whitening products on the beach
It is better to leave them at home and forget until autumn. Typically, these creams contain retinol, acids and other photosensitizers that increase the skin's sensitivity to UV rays.
Rule # 8: rinse salt off your face and body
Bathing in seawater has an excellent effect on the skin, improving tone and elasticity. But after that, it's better to take a shower. When clinging to the skin, salt crystals can cause irritation, itching and redness. More facts about seawater can be found here.
Rule # 9: take hand cream with you to the beach
Even if in ordinary life you do not have this point of care. The skin of the hands, as well as of the face, quickly loses moisture and needs to be hydrated. Don't forget about stops! From constant contact with small stones and sand, the skin becomes rough. Scrub, use a brush, and apply a repair cream (again, can be substituted with panthenol).
Rule # 10: renew your SPF cream every time you bathe
There are no waterproof cosmetics with SPF factor! If the package has a mark from the series "resistant to mechanical stress and moisture" (mechanical stress means sand particles), know that these are all tricks of marketers who sin with their imaginations. Here the logic is simple: if the cream is not removed with water, then what? There are no sunscreen lotion removers on sale.
