1. Dive into fresh hydration
Not only can the summer sun take its toll on our body temperature, it can also dry out our skin, requiring us to regularly cocoon ourselves in a fresh, nourishing moisturizer to cool off and rehydrate. Enter Biotherm Aqua-Gelée: equipped with the nourishing power of a lotion but the fresh, lightweight texture of a gel, Aqua-Gelée will provide your skin with an incredibly cooling sensation, all the while intensely replenishing your skin’s water reserves thanks to the heavy inspiration it took from Biotherm’s Aquasource line – indeed, the watery, cooling gel will also deliver bouts of hydration for up to 48 hours, thanks to its ocean-sourced, Life Plankton-enriched formula. Don’t forget to hydrate from the inside out to keep a healthy body and mind - experts recommend we drink at least 2 litres of water per day in the summer!
Apply generously all over your body at the beginning and end of a warm, summer’s day with no fuss, thanks to its instantly-absorbed texture, in order to remain fresh and hydrated throughout the summer season.
2. Turn down your shower’s temperature dial
The idea of this may make your toes curl up, but trust us – according to experts, cold water can help to constrict blood vessels, temporarily tightening pores, diminish redness and puffiness, as well as boost blood circulation in an attempt to keep warm. For your skin, this could translate into a healthy glow – and for the planet too!
As if that wasn’t enough, braving up and jumping into a cold shower has also been associated with a myriad of other health benefits, including improved metabolism, healthier hair and even boosted mood . If you can handle it, it seems that this icy washing technique could transform you into the healthiest, ecological version of yourself!
