You’ll need sunscreen, cool sunglasses, bottled water, sun and fun!

Summer months put the most strain on our skin, largely because of the intense sunlight and longer days.  Protecting your skin this summer will reduce the signs of aging, combat hyper pigmentation and dehydration and reduce the risk of skin cancer later on.

If the color “lobster” doesn't suit you and “wrinkled as a prune” is not an analogy you wish to make about your skin, you had better make sure that you’re protected from the sun’s invisible intruders.  Remember that Ultraviolet rays can even burn you on cloudy days.

A good, healthy “dose” of sunlight is recommended.

Sunlight, in reasonable doses, (15-20 minutes per day) supports our immune system, promotes skin growth and healing, stimulates hormone production, and contributes to an overall sense of well-being.  It also enables the body to manufacture Vitamin D, naturally, and is responsible for the synthesis of the pigment melanin, “the skin’s natural sunscreen”.

Looking For Trouble?

The trouble begins when excessive sun exposure, coupled with the fact that the ozone layer is eroding, allow more of the harmful UV rays to reach the Earth’s surface and your skin.  UVA contributes to increased skin aging, UVb contributes to sunburn and related damage, and UVC is a potential cancer causing threat. 

Great heat and humidity mean more rashes, breakouts, and clogged pores while chlorine dries out your sin and your hair!

Don’t let these potential downers rain on your summer parade.  Follow these summer skin tips and you’ll be good to glow:

  • Don’t skip moisturizing: Switch to lighter more comfortable formulas for both face and body.  Stay with your eye cream during the day, you need added protection for this vulnerable area.  Dr Baumann Multi Vitamin Fluid or Intensive color light or dark (tinted moisturizer) and the Dr Baumann Bionome Multi Active Liposome E+C will give great protection and treating.
  • Slather on the sunscreen:  Choose products that provide broad-spectrum protection against both Ultraviolet A (UVA) and Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays with a minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 15.  They should also be free of chemical sunscreens and chemical preservatives.  Apply liberally before you go outdoors.  Dr Baumann Bionome Sun Care is a must.
  • Summer Make-up:  Keep foundation light, skip the powder blush and instead go for a natural-looking glow with a touch of bronzing powder or use a cream blush.  use streak proof mascara for swimming, and ditch that lipstick for a dab of tinted gloss.
  • Minimum Cover Up:  No need to cover up from head to toe, but do consider a long-sleeved shirt (at least when you are “new” at the beach) add a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses and yo are good to go.  Get a deck chair and a large umbrella too!
  • Go for the faux:  Minimize your chances of wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer by skipping the suntan altogether and opting for a  sunless “self tanner”.  Try the Dr Baumann Bionome Self Tanning Lotion or SkinIdent Self Tanning - they’re both chemical free, with no unpleasant odor and you don’t turn orange!
  • Exfoliate regularly:  Sun, sand, sweat, and sunscreen only increase the amount of dead skin cells that build up on your face and body.  Slough them off with an exfoliator or a loofah a few times each week. (A beautiful bonus: Exfoliating also help your self-tanner to go on more evenly and prevent streaking.)
  • Drink up: Drink 8-10 glasses of water every day.

 Use these simple strategies for skin care in summer and you’ll have the best looking, healthiest skin on the block!

APPLICATION TIPS: Humidity and your skin

  • Hot, hazy and Humid days make you feel sticky and blah, because your sweat just hangs around on your skin (instead of evaporating into the air), where it mixes with your body’s natural oils and bacteria, forming a slippery layer.  All that extra moisture on the surface act like a magnifying glass, attracting the harsh sun and amplifying the ultra damaging effects it has on the skin.
  • Follow these tips:
  • Cleanse twice, morning and evening, with the Dr Baumann Cleansing Gel to dissolve and splash off all the grease.
  • Apply the Dr Baumann Multi Active Liposome E+C, morning and evening, to carry active ingredients deeper into the skin, and also to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
  • Apply the Intensive Lotion.  This light formula can only be used at night, since the humidity in the air helps your face retain natural moisture and also makes your skin produce more oil than normal.
  • In terms of sunscreen, this is a must during the day.  Apply the Sun Lotion Factor 20, with Octocrylene, for a light oil free feel.

  • The secret of a can’t-tell-it-from real tan is in the application.  So follow these how-to guidelines and your fake tan will last longer, and have your friends wondering about your weekend get aways.
  • The day before applying your self tan, exfoliate well.  The smoother the canvas, the more even your tan will be.  Concentrate on thicker areas of skin for example the knees, elbows and ankles.  Use the Peeling Strong for a deep exfoliation, do circular movements in the direction of the heart to increase the blood circulation.  A body brush or exfoliating gloves can also be used in conjunction with the Peeling Strong.
  • Don’t apply within an hour of bathing or showering, as the skin needs to cool to its normal temperature for foolproof application.
  • Use the Bath and Shower Gel to cleanse the body, as soap, which is alkaline, can make the tan look more yellow.
  • Moisturize the skin before you apply your self tan, or drier areas of the skin will soak up more of the self tan and be darker, for example the knees, elbows and ankles.  Apply moisturizer about and hour or two before applying the self tan.
  • Warm the self tan in your hands, and massage the self tanner in, using long, smooth strokes and applying even pressure with your fingertips.

Shower and Bath

A particularly gentle cleanser for the body with mild cleansing substances. Afterwards we recommend the application of one of the Body Lotions. For very dry, flaky skin the Intensive Lotion and Body Lotion Super is recommended.

APPLICATION TIPS: Brilliant Hair, Brilliant Body

  • Sun, Sea and Sand may be good for lifting the spirits, but they’re not so great for hair. Exposure to the suns rays even for a short time can contribute to dry and damaged hair.  Look after your hair by reading the following tips:
  • Wash your hair with the Dr Baumann Shampoo after swimming to cleanse the hair of salts and chlorine deposits.
  • Apply the Dr Baumann Conditioner Special, and leave for a couple of minutes.  The D-Panthenol give the hair a healthy, silky sheen, while the Macadamia Nut Oil nourish the hair and the scalp.
  • Nobody wants a dimpled appearance on their thighs while on the beach.  Use the Dr Baumann Body Special Strong to reduce the appearance of cellulite and orange peel.  


Particularly mild cleansing substances gently cleanse the hair and scalp. An herbal extract diminishes itchiness and flakiness, while a special active ingredient reduces dandruff. Although this shampoo contains special nourishing substances, the hair is not weighed down. Afterwards the use of the Hair Conditioner is highly recommended. Also suitable for pets.
