HOW DOES SUMMER AFFECT YOUR SKIN?
SUMMER AND YOUR SKIN? NOT EXACTLY A WALK IN THE PARK. HEAT, HUMIDITY AND CITY POLLUTION CAN LEAVE THEIR MARKS. AND YOU WILL SEE THAT. YOUR SKIN STARTS TO LOSE ITS NATURAL RADIANCE, LEAVING IT DULL, OILY AND PRONE TO BLEMISHES. WANT TO FIND OUT HOW TO BEAT THE SUMMER HEAT AND HOLD ON TO THAT RADIANT COMPLEXION ALL SUMMER LONG? THEN KEEP ON READING.
TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE IMPORTANCE OF A FACE WASH
In summer, you would need a proper face wash that can zap out all the excess oil and dirt. Wash your face daily (2x) to keep it happy, healthy and perfectly balanced. Your nightly skincare routine is always important, but even more so during summer. Sunscreens tend to be on the heavier side so make sure you remove any residue at the end of the day. Protect your skin during the day, but let it breathe overnight.
INCLUDE ANTIOXIDANTS IN YOUR FACIAL SKINCARE ROUTINE
Your summer is not complete without a good antioxidant serum. Not only does it boost hydration, but it also protects from environmental damage. Antioxidants stimulate collagen production and tackle harmful free radicals to prevent further damage. It’s a ‘one size fits all’ kind of product, as it’s good for combination, normal and oily skin. Remember that nourishing yourself from the inside out is vital for healthy skin. Stock up on antioxidant powerhouses like citrus fruits, leafy veggies, green tea, nuts and whole grains to unveil a more radiant complexion.
KEEP YOUR SKIN HYDRATED
The summer months are tough on your skin. It’s then when it suffers from a lack of both moisture and hydration. That’s why it’s important to invest in a nourishing mask to quench your skin’s thirst a few times a week. Wash your face and apply the mask to repair, hydrate and soothe your parched complexion. It's your skin’s best friend when it comes to dryness, acne and oily situations. Schedule 10 minutes of unapologetic me-time while taking care of your complexion.
EXFOLIATE REGULARLY FOR SMOOTHER SKIN
Exfoliation is the secret to beautiful summer skin. It sloughs away dead skin cells and reveals a brighter and smoother complexion. Unwanted build-up prevents the skin from breathing which leads to even more congestion. Always remember that exfoliation is as necessary for your body as it is for your face. Just be extra gentle when exfoliating, especially in summer.
Sunscreen should be your number one priority. Always. Use one that has a broad ultraviolet spectrum (between SPF 30-50 and covers UVA and UVB rays). Re-apply every two hours if you’re spending all day enjoying the summer heat. And don’t forget your hands, feet, neck and shoulders.
USE A REFRESHING TONER
A toner is a summer essential for good reason. Not only does it help close open pores, but it also prevents future blemishes by tackling congestion. Our t-zone has the largest amount of sebaceous glands and can look like an oil slick during summer. Pay extra care to this area while toning your face.
PICK THE RIGHT MOISTURIZER
With summer’s arrival, you’ll be switching heavy moisturisers for light-as-air alternatives. Don’t assume that your skin doesn’t need moisture in summer, it just needs something different. Summer skincare should provide hydration with a barely-there feel. Our 3-in-1 face cream can help you with that.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
The best thing you can do for your skin is also the easiest. Water. Drinking water keeps your skin supple, soft and incredibly radiant. Remember to increase your daily H20 during those scorching summer months. A simple 2 litres a day will keep you hydrated and detoxify your complexion. Your body and your skin will be forever thankful.
REMEMBER TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FEET
Let’s not forget to treat the ones who carry the most. Our feet are often overlooked but deserve the same care you give everything else. Cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate those hard workers every week. Don’t forget sunscreen if you’re wearing open shoes.
STEPPING INTO THE HEAT FROM AIR-CONDITIONED SURROUNDINGS AND VICE VERSA, EXCESSIVE EXPOSURE TO THE SUNLIGHT, SWIMMING TO STAY COOL AND THE HUMIDITY CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT YOUR SKIN. THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU CAN RESTORE YOUR SKIN’S NATURAL BALANCE, LUSTRE, AND ENSURE GOOD HEALTH BY TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOUR SKIN.
