Balancing Your Skin During The Summer Months
Posted on 06 December 2017
With the temperatures rising, it’s time to upgrade your skincare regime this summer to combat sunspots, balmy-weather blemishes, hyperpigmentation and other frequently experienced summer skincare concerns.
I’ve compiled some of my favourite summer skincare tips to help you maintain a fresh and flawless complexion this summer. Try these simple skin switchover rules for glowing summer skin!
Clean skin can be more difficult to attain during the summer months, so it’s important to prevent skin congestion by choosing lighter products. We recommend cleansing morning and night with our Superfruit Exfoliating Wash Off Cleanser with Organic Blueberry Extract to help prevent sun damage, pollution build-up and environmental stresses.
I find that it’s important to stay away from heavier creamy and oil cleansers in the summer months as they can make it more difficult for the skin to breath, which can lead to breakouts when combined with Australian summer heat. Our Balance & Replenish Light Moisturiser is perfect for the summer months, as it is both light and luxurious, containing a mix of vitamin and mineral rich organic ingredients to hydrate, calm and replenish the skin.
Finally always remember our number one rule – sun protection. SPF is your skin’s best friend this summer and one of the most powerful anti-aging tools available! In addition to incorporating a sun block into your daily beauty regime, also ensure your mineral makeup includes zinc and titanium dioxide to further avoid incidental sun damage.
We created our light weight and long wearing Mineral Pressed Powder with an SPF15 rating to deliver additional sun protection all year round. Key ingredients include malic acid, a natural AHA, which is found in apples, to assist with brightening and smoothing the complexion, plus vitamin E and jojoba for a healthy, natural glow.
We recommend keeping a fuss-free powder foundation in your beauty and beach bags that you can use on the go and that is going to provide the right coverage AND keep skin protected.
It’s all about the small changes that you can make to achieve the greatest difference to your skin without spending hours in front of the mirror every morning!
