What to keep in the swimming bag?

We have a few tips on what to keep in the swimming bag to make sure the skin stays healthy and well-hydrated post-swim.

Recently, we have been finding ourselves obsessing about sandy beaches, a warm summer breeze and of course — refreshing summer swims!

Whether you're all about lounging poolside, competitive swimming, or a refreshing dip in the ocean, we have a few tips on what to keep in the swimming bag to make sure the skin stays healthy and well-hydrated post-swim.

Here is our take on the ideal swimming skincare routine!

Here is our take on the ideal swimming skincare routine!

1. Protect.

Make sure to protect your skin before exposing it to the sun, harmful UV rays and other environmental aggressors. Apply a SPF protection of your choice before you dip in. Chose a natural but effective sun block, creating a protective layer while still retaining skin moisture. Using a moisturizer on a regular basis also helps prevent irritation. We recommend our EGF Body Serum along with your favorite BIOEFFECT facial cream or serum.

2. Cleanse.

Rinse off right after swimming. We don't want chlorine, salt, and other irritants sitting on the skin any longer than necessary. While you're at it, we recommend using our Volcanic Exfoliator once or twice a week. The refining face exfoliator buffs and refines, removes impurities, and gently nourishes the skin.

3. Prep.

Apply the EGF Essence to the skin on your face and neck while still damp. This wonder water brings together the best of a hydrating toner, nourishing beauty water, and essence treatment for moisturized, healthy-, and younger-looking skin. Provides instant hydration while perfectly prepping the skin for any BIOEFFECT cream or serum to follow.

4. Hydrate.

Swimming may irritate and dry out the skin. We can't stress this enough — Hydration is the key to skin health, so make sure to find your fit from our nourishing and anti-aging product range. We recommend our facial creams, the Hydrating Cream and the EGF Power Cream, making sure to leave the skin soft, smooth, and extremely well nourished. And hey, don’t forget about your body! Body care is a growing trend, and our EGF Body Serum is an active body serum providing long-lasting and effective hydration.

5. Drink up!

The connection between water consumption and skin health may still require further investigation. Nevertheless, we all know how important it is to keep the body well hydrated throughout the day, especially after swimming or exercising. So make sure to drink up!
