Summer Skincare Tips For Your Face

Prepping your skin during the summer begins with effective cleansing and exfoliating. With the higher humidity and increased sweat, our skin is prone to excess oil and dirt buildup, leading to potential breakouts. Choose a gentle cleanser suited to your skin type, and cleanse twice daily to remove impurities and keep your pores clear. Additionally, exfoliation is a game-changer for sloughing off dead skin cells, revealing a fresher, brighter complexion. Opt for a gentle exfoliator with natural ingredients, and use it once or twice a week to avoid irritation.

Moisturising is an absolute must for summer skincare. While many might think that moisturisers are unnecessary during hot and humid months, they play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy skin barrier. Look for lightweight, oil-free moisturisers to provide the hydration your skin needs without clogging pores or feeling heavy - like our Immortelle Divine Cream followed by our Overnight Reset Serum. Regular moisturising ensures that your skin stays balanced, plump, and protected from environmental stressors, giving you that radiant, dewy look.

Shielding your skin with SPF is the ultimate defense against the sun's harmful rays during summer. Applying a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher should be an integral part of your daily skincare routine, like our Reine Blanche Illuminating UV Shield SPF50. With its moisturising formula, the Illuminating UV shield instantly offers comfort and a sensation of incredible smoothness, leaving skin feeling optimally protected, plumped and hydrated. Ensure to generously apply it on all exposed areas, including face, neck, ears, and any other uncovered skin.

Prepping your body for summer starts with a revitalising shower gel and exfoliation routine. Begin by choosing a nourishing shower gel formulated with gentle, natural ingredients to cleanse and hydrate your skin, like our Verbena Shower Gel. The shower gel will wash away dirt, sweat, and impurities, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and ready for the sunny days ahead. Once or twice a week, incorporate a body exfoliator into your routine for gentle removal of dead skin cells and to reveal a smooth, radiant canvas. Exfoliation also helps to prevent ingrown hairs, making it ideal for those planning to show off their summer glow.

After exfoliation, moisturising your body is essential to maintain the newfound smoothness and radiance. Choose a rich and nourishing body lotion or cream to deeply hydrate your skin, like our Almond Milk Concentrate. Apply the moisturiser immediately after exfoliating while your skin is still slightly damp to lock in the maximum moisture. Regular post-exfoliation moisturisation will not only keep your skin feeling velvety soft but also extend the longevity of your summer glow, leaving you with beautifully nourished and healthy skin all season long.

It's crucial to safeguard your skin from the harmful effects of the sun's rays during summer. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, specifically designed for body application. Before heading outdoors, generously apply the sunscreen to all exposed areas, ensuring thorough coverage. Don't forget easily overlooked spots like the tops of your feet, shoulders, and the back of your neck. Reapply every two hours, or more frequently if swimming or perspiring, to maintain its effectiveness. For extended sun exposure, seek shade whenever possible and wear lightweight, protective clothing to further shield your skin.

After Sun Care Tips

After-sun care routine is an essential step in nurturing your skin's health and replenishing moisture after exposure to the sun's rays. Following a day of fun in the sun, treat your skin to a soothing after-sun product, such as an aloe vera gel or a dedicated after-sun lotion. These products are specifically formulated to cool and hydrate sun-exposed skin, alleviating any redness or irritation caused by UV rays. Gently apply the after-sun product all over your body, paying special attention to areas that received the most sun exposure. This post-sun ritual not only helps to calm and soothe the skin but also aids in maintaining your hard-earned tan. Additionally, make sure to drink plenty of water to rehydrate your body from the inside out.

With our face and body protected, we mustn't neglect our luscious locks. With increased exposure to UV rays, salt water, and chlorine, our hair can become dry, brittle, and prone to damage. To combat these effects, start by using a clarifying shampoo to remove build-up and residue from styling products and environmental pollutants. Follow up with a hydrating conditioner to nourish and replenish moisture, paying extra attention to the ends of your hair. Our Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner will do the job perfectly. Follow up with our Intensive Repair Enriched Infused Oil for the ultimate post-sun hair care routine.
