4. Protect shaved skin.
If your summer wardrobe includes shorts, capris, swimsuits and sleeveless tops, you may be shaving more than usual. Shaving doesn’t just remove hair—it also removes natural protective oils, leaving your skin dry and vulnerable to irritation.
To guard against razor burn and prevent dry skin, apply a thick, luxurious moisturizer after every shave. Switch out your razor or blades frequently to reduce the risks of microtears and infection.
5. Moisturize before sunscreen.
Remember, your skin is a permeable layer. What goes on your skin often ends up inside as well.
If you can’t stay out of the sun, we suggest using a moisturizer with beeswax like Boom Cotton before applying sunscreen. Boom Cotton is an all-natural moisturizer made with beeswax, which creates a protective barrier between your skin and anything you might put on your skin, like sunscreen.
Its matte finish also minimizes shine, which is helpful for humid days.
