Are you spending your summer in Belgium this year? Then we have lots of inspiration for you. We are taking you on holiday in Belgium, for a whole month! What should you do before diving into the water and where can you find those ecological swimming options? You will find out in this article!
Preparation & dedication is key
First of all, apply enough sun cream on a regular basis! You’re more likely to get burned near water and sand. Why? Whilst swimming, the skin can burn faster because UV light easily penetrates clear water and sunscreens are partially rinsed off the skin. Both water and sand reflect the sunlight, so more UV radiation reaches the skin.
Don't you forget your hair! Your hair works a bit like a sponge and absorbs a lot of water. Our tip: wet your hair with clean water before you go for a swim. As a result, your hair will first absorb the clean water and much less of the chlorine or sea water. Want even more protection? Put some l’Huile by CÎME on your hair ends. Once you get out of the water, it is important not to let your hair dry with the chlorine or salt residues. To prevent this, you can wash your hair immediately after swimming. The Nuts About You shampoo and hand & body wash are the perfect combo to refresh your hair and skin.
