FIVE WAYS to get CLEAR skin this Summer Season!
As the hot summer months approach, our skin begins to change. Isn't that so? With the constant heat and humidity, our skin begins to cry out for extra TLC & sun protection to keep the rashes, sunburns, and tan at bay.
To avoid everyday summer skin problems, you must immediately update your skincare routine.
Sweat, sunscreen, and grime can clog your pores, and since summer temperatures can lead to oily skin, eliminating the oil, dirt, and debris is critical to maintaining clear skin.
Also, the moment your skin is exposed to harmful UV rays, Melanin production accelerates in the summertime.
But what is it?
Melanin is a photoprotective pigment, excess melanin production results in tanned, sun-burnt, and irritated skin.
Don’t fret; here’s a skin-protect summer skincare routine for having clear & healthy skin all season long:
- Pick an Organic, alcohol-free, non-comedogenic face cleanser:
Oily skin can become even more oily in the heat. Use a face wash suitable for your skin type and capable of deep cleansing and removing all dirt and grime. An organic, sulphate-free, and non-comedogenic cleanser is highly recommended for this season.
Choose a gentle cleanser for the skin that softens and soothes it while gently removing pollutants.
In the summer, cleanse at least twice a day to maintain your skin fresh and healthy while reducing the likelihood of outbreaks.
Beauty Bonus Tip: Opt for double cleansing; use a cleansing balm pre-rinse wash!
- Buff away the toxins; EXFOLIATE:
Dry, damaged, and dull skin needs to be attended to from time to time.
Physical exfoliation stimulates healthy circulation to promote the maximum benefits of active ingredients in your skincare regime.
Exfoliants gently remove dead skin cells to reveal smoother, softer, and glowing skin.
Go for all organic, finely granulated-textured exfoliators because they will exfoliate the skin while polishing away dead skin cells, excess oils and impurities without being harsh on your skin.
Perform this ritual at least once or at max twice a week!
Beauty Bonus Tip: Always moisten your skin thoroughly in the shower or bath before applying a scrub or exfoliant.????????
- Include anti-oxidants in your regime in the form of serums or facial oils:
Serums are an essential aspect of any effective skincare routine, but the serum you use depends on your specific needs. Increased hydration is the ultimate goal in the summer. This summer, a moisturising serum can go a long way toward keeping your skin soft and smooth. They're also lightweight, which is important in hot and humid conditions.
100% Certified Organic Actives & Antioxidants can be found in serums and face oils, so include them in your skincare routine!
Antioxidant serums moisturise your skin like no other. Furthermore, they protect your skin from environmental harm, aid in collagen production, and scavenge free radicals to prevent skin damage.
- Monitor your SPF& Moisturiser ingredients & application:
Sunscreen is essential since sweat is the body's natural cooling mechanism. It aids in the unclogging of pores and the reduction of blemishes.
Of course, SUNSCREEN is the essential step of any summer skincare routine, but summertime necessitates the use of a moisturiser to protect your skin too. Depending on your skin type, you can select a non-greasy formula. However, search for antioxidants & healing ingredients. It's even great if it has SPF.
After your bath, apply a moisturiser as soon as possible. And top it up with a Mineral Sunscreen.
Beauty Bonus: While there are some components you shouldn't use twice for your skin's health, SPF is not one of them. You can use an SPF moisturiser first and then apply sunscreen on top. Reapply sunscreen at least every two-three hours if you're under the sun.
- Keep your skin hydrated & well moisturised:
During the summer, you'll have to contend with humidity and heat. Just because it's humid outdoors doesn't mean your skin is getting a boost from it. In your summer skincare routine, you should still use a decent moisturiser & a hydro-boost. It could be in the form of a toning mist or a facial oil!
During the heat, staying hydrated is essential. Post a calming cleanse at night, use a hydrating face mask for extra moisture while you sleep. To keep your skin fresh, splash it with water or carry a facial mist for an instant hydro-boost!
And remember, self-care & great skin starts with CLEAN skin.
Carve out a couple of minutes every day and keep neutralising the harmful effects of the season with an updated, all-organic skincare routine!
Enjoy healthy coolers, stay comfortable, & #LiveOrganic!
