Summer is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited to help you prepare your skin for the sunny days ahead. We are encouraging you to make some thoughtful adjustments to your skincare routine.
In summer, the skin undergoes several changes due to the heat and increased humidity. Your skin is more prone to clogged pores due to increased sweating, and it can become dehydrated more quickly. Adjusting your skincare routine by opting for lighter makeup, exfoliating regularly, staying well-hydrated, and using hydrating products and sunscreen can help you maintain healthy and glowing skin in the warmer months.
Now let’s dive into those summer skincare must-haves and essentials.
Embrace the Power of SPF
As the days get longer and the sun shines brighter, it’s crucial to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. UV exposure can lead to premature ageing, dark spots, and at worst an increased risk of skin cancer. Our top recommendation is to make sunscreen your best friend this summer.
These lightweight, non-greasy formulas offers broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays while keeping your skin moisturised and radiant.
Hydration is Key
Summertime can be quite dehydrating for your skin, with increased temperatures and outdoor activities. To maintain a healthy complexion, keep your skin well-hydrated.
Hyaluronic Acid is a game-changer when it comes to hydration. It helps your skin retain moisture, plumping and revitalising it, leaving you with a youthful, dewy glow.
Exfoliation is a crucial step in summer skincare. It helps to remove dead skin cells, keeping your skin smooth and refreshed. Be gentle with your exfoliation routine, as over-exfoliating can lead to sensitivity.
A gentle exfoliating scrub is enriched with natural ingredients that will leave your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated. Use it 2-3 times a week for a radiant complexion.
Nourish Your Skin with Antioxidants
Protect your skin from free radicals, which can be more prevalent in the summertime, by incorporating products rich in antioxidants.
Vitamin C is a powerhouse for fighting environmental stressors. It brightens your skin and evens out your complexion, giving you that desired summer-ready glow.
