Summer Skincare Essentials Protecting Your Skin from UV Damage

Summer Skincare Essentials Protecting Your Skin from UV Damage Cover

Summer has arrived and there is no better way to celebrate than by soaking in the sun, but remember to always protect yourself from it while still enjoying the warmth.

Here are some recommendations to help you understand sun protection better so you can enjoy your summer to the fullest while staying safe.


Sunscreen on woman's back
Sunscreen is the last step to any skincare, but it doesn't mean that it is the least important. In fact it is a critical part of your skincare that anyone can start no matter their age. Whether you are sunbathing or out and about for the day, ensure your sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays.

Sunscreen acts as a protective barrier and it is recommended to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours and not to forget one's neck and ears to reduce the risk of sunburn and skin damage.

Regular hydration is required during summer to maintain healthy skin, keeping it elastic and radiant. Water helps to flush out toxins, regulate body temperature, and reduce sun damage.

Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining healthy skin during the summer months. Increase your water intake to keep your body hydrated from the inside out.


In summer the heat is far more, with increased sun exposure, heat, and air conditioning than what we see the rest of the year and it can cause your skin to become dehydrated - this is why using a lightweight moisturiser is essential. Applying a light moisturiser helps maintain the moisture balance in skin, preventing it from becoming dry and dull and creating a protective barrier against environmental stressors. It provides the necessary hydration without weighing down your skin, allowing it to breathe, and preventing excess oil production. Also, while sunscreen is crucial for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, it can sometimes dry skin out.


Your skin needs extra moisture and protection from the sun, pollution, and other environmental factors. Making use of a gentle, hydrating cleanser will help keep your skin clean without stripping away its natural oils and prevent extra dryness. Sweating, increased oil production, and exposure to pollutants make using a cleanser important, because this removes impurities without stripping away natural oils, which is a priority during the summer.

Alongside a good cleanser is the need for purposeful exfoliation, because it helps remove the build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, leaving it to be smoother and brighter. During the summer, your skin may produce more oil and sweat, which can contribute to clogged pores and dull-looking skin. The removal of dead skin cells also allows your skincare products to better absorb and can provide optimal benefits.

Remember that when you are exfoliating, the purpose is to remove:
  • Debris
  • Dead skin
  • Sweat
  • Excess oils
  • Clogged SPF

Limit exfoliation to 1-2 times a week to avoid skin sensitivity and always follow up with sunscreen to protect the fresh skin cells. Choose a gentle exfoliator like Violet Jordan’s Muslin cloth that accompanies the Deep Clean facial cleanser to renew your skin without causing irritation.


Lip Care
Often overlooked, our lips and the delicate skin around our eyes need special attention during the summer. Lips are often exposed to the sun more frequently than other areas of the body and the skin on our lips is more thin compared to the skin on the rest of our bodies, making them more prone to sun damage. Apply a lip balm to keep them moisturised, and spf for added protection from the elements. Prolonged sun exposure can lead to premature ageing of any skin - particularly lips - as it can contribute to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots on the lips, diminishing their natural beauty.

For the eye area, use a lightweight eye cream to prevent dryness and protect against fine lines and wrinkles. Wearing sunglasses with UV protection further shields your eyes from harmful sun exposure and reduces the risk of sun-related eye conditions.


The sun's rays can produce harmful free radicals that damage your skin. Combat these free radicals with antioxidant-rich serums. Violet Jordan’s Radiance Boosting Serum has antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E that protect your skin and help fend off free radicals caused by UV exposure. Vitamin C contains brightening properties to help reduce sun spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation that are more prominent in sunny weather.

Be Wary Of Sun-Sensitive Ingredients And Treatments

One of the many perks of summer is that we finally get to bask in the sunshine! However, you need to be cautious when you are outside while using sun sensitive ingredients such as:
  1. Retinol
  2. Citrus oils
  3. Benzoyl Peroxide
  4. Glycolic Acids

As you embrace the joys of summer, don't forget to prioritise your skincare routine to protect and nourish your skin. By following these essential tips, including regular sunscreen application, staying hydrated, gentle cleansing, and incorporating antioxidants, you'll ensure your skin stays healthy.
