Do’s and don’ts for wearing perfume in the sun
In case you are planning to wear perfume to the beach, you should consider the following pointers:
- The type of base in your perfume
- The type of scent family
Most perfumes use alcohol as a carrier. In case you were not aware, alcohol is photosensitive in nature. It means that in the presence of the sun, the alcohol will react with your skin and can lead to side effects. This can include rashes, discoloration, spotting, and pigmentation.
This is where the type of base your perfume is formulated with comes into play. Before going out in the sun, especially the beach, change to a water-based perfume. Apart from providing protection against the reactions mentioned above, water-based fragrances work well for those with sensitive skin.
Now, the reason you should consider your scent’s family: You will be going out in the sun and be present among the waves, sand, and wind. Choose a scent that smells like nature not a beauty counter. Citrus scents and light woodsy tones are great for warm weather and smell great as you sweat and tan.
Considering this reasoning, the following are exceptionally lovely perfume notes you can choose for your beach excursion:
- Soothing floral notes such as rose, gardenia, and jasmine to restore balance to your mood and are feminine and light
- Relaxing hints of chamomile, lavender, and bergamot that remind you of the tranquil waters and waves.
- Grounding sandalwood, patchouli, and jasmine that turn on your passion for life as you enjoy a picturesque sunset
Social distancing was hard enough for the entire 2020. Now that you have decided to shed your clothes and go for some beach therapy, choose perfume that is healthy, healing and natural. Always choose skin-friendly beauty products and don’t forget your natural organic perfume rather than a synthetic option. Leave the petrochemicals behind. Your skin will thank you.
