Are you sure it’s August? Let’s review our summer skin essentials to keep you glowy and hydrated for the rest of the season. Summer isn’t over yet: the increased UV exposure, higher humidity, and outdoor activities demand a tailored approach to skincare (hint: SPF!!). In this blog, we'll delve into the perfect summer skin care routine to help you maintain a glowing complexion.
SPF = Your Best Friend
Sunscreen isn't just an option – it's a necessity. The sun's UV rays cause premature aging, sunburns, and even increase the risk of skin cancer. Our daily moisturizer plus SPF make it easy to moisturize and protect all in one! Apply it generously on your face including your neck. The daily moisturizer plus SPF is non greasy and enriched with plant powered nutrients- an all natural lotion that doesn’t make you look oily or leave a white cast.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
The hot weather can lead to dehydration, which in turn affects your skin's health. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. Incorporate hydrating skincare products at night like: Rejuvenating Night cream, Natural Actives Facial Oil and Protector cream that will repair & maintain your skin's moisture barrier over night.
Cleanse Gently but Thoroughly
Sweat, sunscreen, and pollutants can accumulate on your skin during the summer, clogging pores and leading to more breakouts than usual. Opt for one of our gentle cleansers that effectively removes impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Depending on your skin type: moringa for normal to combination, charcoal for oily/acne prone, and chocolatte for dry skin. Cleansing twice a day helps maintain a clear complexion while preventing excessive oiliness.
Exfoliation: Balance is Key
Exfoliation can slough away dead skin cells, revealing a fresher complexion. However, be cautious not to overdo it, as excessive exfoliation can disrupt your skin's protective barrier. Use one of our scrubs twice a week: moringa, charcoal, or chocolatte.
After a day in the sun, treat your skin to some soothing care. Aloe vera gel can provide relief from sunburn and redness, while antioxidant-rich serums: rejuvenating night cream or natural actives facial oil can help repair any sun damage.
Summer isn’t over just yet!. By following these essential skincare tips, you can ensure your skin remains healthy, radiant, and well-protected throughout the remainder of the season. Remember, the key lies in SPF daily, hydration, gentle cleansing, and exfoliating twice a week. Embrace the sun while taking care of your skin, and you'll enjoy a beautiful and vibrant complexion all summer long.
