Here’s Exactly how to build a bodycare routine for the summer

It’s the onset of summer, but your responsibility doesn’t end with merely slathering on SPF before heading outdoors. The scorching temperatures of the season can often mean that some unwanted skincare concerns crash the party: bacne, sunburn and inflammation. If you’ve been looking forward to flaunting all the leg days you have been clocking in at the gym, it is time to build a preventative summer bodycare routine that can protect, nourish and shield your skin against the sun’s rays. Ahead, we round up all the bodycare products for summer that you will need to get started.

For starters, try this pre-shower summer bodycare routine:

  • Not having a bodycare routine in the year 2024 is the equivalent of not brushing your teeth in the AM—you are missing the boat on a cleaner, revitalised version of you.
  • Given the build-up of sweat, dirt and other debris after long hours in the sun, it helps to get proactive with a consistent exfoliation routine.  
  • Reach for a dry brush to slough off any impurities that you’d rather not have sitting on your skin. When drafting your shopping list of bodycare products for summer, pencil in a dry body brush with natural bristles to ensure that it isn’t harsh on your skin.

  • When you are looking to buy bodycare products, you wouldn’t want to leave the aisle without a gentler body cleanser tucked into your cart. While your search can be guided by any specific skin concerns, a hydrating, non-drying formula generally works well for most skin types.

  • You can look to dial up the benefits of your cleanser by running it over an exfoliating bath glove to strip away dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hair.

  • But what about any impurities that have not been washed away by the cleanser? A weekly scrub can help leave your skin feeling good as new. When you hit the bath and body products aisle, look for gentle scrubs with non-abrasive beads that won’t strip your skin dry.

  • If shaving is also a part of your summer bodycare routine, you’ll want to ensure that you aren’t drying out your skin in the process with harsh shaving foams. Opt for a gentle hair removal razor that is replaced every few weeks and a hydrating shaving mousse.

  • Now comes the time to seal in the handiwork with a body moisturiser for summer while your skin is still damp to lock in the moisture. A host of formulas spiked with active ingredients will help you kill two birds with one stone by targeting acne, bumps and uneven skin tone.

  • The final destination when looking for summer bodycare products is ensuring that your skin is shielded from the sun’s harsh rays. A fast-absorbing formula will ensure that you aren’t battling a greasy after-feel all day long.
