Just as we prepare our wardrobe for the arrival of the heat, with lightweight garments in light colours, it is also important to prepare and care for our skin during the season when we are most exposed to the sun. Of course we like the feeling of the sun on our skin—and it is necessary to a point—, yet it is a well-known fact that we must also protect ourselves from it, as overexposure can lead to serious skin diseases.
It is important to moisturise our skin often, to keep it soft, and it is equally important avoid the sun during the hottest hours of the day, as it is then that the sun’s rays are most intense. Moreover, we must use a good sunscreen and apply it properly: be sure to put it on twenty minutes or a half hour before going out into the sun, apply it evenly all over the body and repeat application every two hours; and if you swim, re-apply it each time you get out of the water.
Because every skin type is different, certain products will be better for you than others. This means you will have to select the one that is best for you. This is common knowledge for the professionals at the shops in illa Carlemany, Andorra’s centre. Feel free to request advice at the Galeno parapharmacy or the L’Occitane en Provence boutique on floor 0 or at Rituals or Júlia Perfumeries on the ground floor.
