Glowing and Green: Skincare Essentials for Water-Sport Queens

Welcome, water goddesses and eco-conscious athletes! If you're a lady who thrives on the exhilaration of watersports, with an added commitment to preserving our oceans, this blog is tailored just for you.

Empower your water-loving spirit and athletic prowess with a skincare routine that not only elevates your glow but also champions the health of our oceans. By choosing reef-friendly products, you can make a positive impact on the environment while basking in the beauty of the water. Plus, we've curated a selection of sunscreens suitable for water sports enthousiasts, ensuring you're protected under the sun while making a positive impact on the environment.


Pre-Adventure Prep

Start your skincare routine with a gentle, reef-friendly exfoliator. Look for products that are free of microbeads to protect marine life, and opt for those with natural exfoliants like jojoba beads.

Sunscreen Selection

Choosing the right sunscreen is crucial. Look for mineral sunscreens containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. These physical blockers are not only effective but are also less likely to cause skin irritation during high-intensity activities.

Reef-Friendly Formulas

Many traditional sunscreens contain harmful chemicals that contribute to coral bleaching. Choose sunscreens labeled "reef-friendly" or "reef-safe" to ensure your skin is protected without harming our underwater ecosystems. These sunscreens often skip oxybenzone, octinoxate, and other reef-damaging ingredients.

Water-Resistant Wonders

Pro athletes know the importance of a water-resistant formula that stays put during intense workouts. Look for sunscreens specifically labeled as water-resistant for long-lasting protection in and out of the water.

Hydration Heroes

Keep your skin hydrated with a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturiser. Opt for products that are free of synthetic fragrances and parabens, as these can be irritating during prolonged exposure to the sun.

Curated sunscreens

Post-Water Ritual

After your aquatic adventures, rinse off with fresh water to remove any lingering salt or chlorine. Follow up with a nourishing, reef-safe cleanser that won't harm marine life when it washes off.

Lip Love

Protect your lips with a lip balm containing natural ingredients like beeswax or shea butter. Check for SPF coverage to shield your lips from the sun's rays.
