Welcome to summer and the big sunny days, it's the perfect time to prepare your skin to receive the first rays of the sun and provide it with the hydration it needs. Here are some tips for preparing your skin for the sun and a recipe for post-exposure care: your nourishing after-sun serum with monoi and aloe vera!

Tip 1: A gentle exfoliation

Before the first exposures to the sun, exfoliation has many benefits. It removes dead skin, impurities and toxins, leaving your skin cells better oxygenated for softer skin. Once your skin is rid of dead cells, it will tan much better and evenly.

To do this, you can use our loofah sponge and our black soap, this exfoliating material ideal for carrying out a gentle "peeling". It deeply cleanses your skin, beautifies it and restores suppleness, elasticity and stimulates blood circulation. For healthier, breathable skin!

But beware the scrub is a double-edged sword, it also removes the layer of skin that protects you from ultraviolet rays and therefore sunburn. So the exfoliation is good but in small doses and not just before leaving for the tropics. Always massage your skin gently and absolutely follow your scrub with good hydration.

Tip 2: Good hydration

Hydration is part of our daily beauty routine. Summer or winter, we want nourished and hydrated skin. Perfectly nourished skin will be more receptive to the sun's rays. You will therefore tan more easily and you will avoid dry and cracked skin. Because, if the skin needs water, it also needs fatty substances to retain water! You therefore need a treatment that hydrates (with water) and nourishes (with lipids).

But be careful, hydration should not only be done before your exposure but during and after, in order to protect your skin and keep your tan longer.

Before exposure, use our body milks and balms, during exposure use sunscreen with a UV index between 30 and 50, and after exposure, we offer you this recipe for a nourishing monoi after-sun serum. and aloe vera known for its soothing and healing properties.
