The summer heat can be unforgiving on your skin so it’s important to take care of it during this season. Just a few simple changes in your everyday skin care regimen can ensure you stay glowing and healthy throughout the hot summer days ahead.
Exercise that exfoliation
Coming out of winter it's natural for your skin to look a little dull but that doesn’t mean it has to stay that way! Using an exfoliator twice a week will remove the top layer of dead skin which helps to bring new, fresh skin to the surface of the body. The results? More glowing, clear skin! YES PLEASE!
Use Sencebeauty Face Scrub – it’s the easiest way to get your glow on!
Switch up your cleanser
With the change in season comes the change in your skincare - you wouldn’t wear your winter clothes in summer, right?
Winter is for more nourishing and hydrating cleansers and moisturisers but in summer your skin doesn’t need much help in this department when the weather is warmer.
Summer skin can be an oily mess with all the sunscreen wearing and sweat. Using Sencebeauty Charcoal Face Wash helps draw out impurities from the excess oils. Leaving your skin feeling clean, fresh and hydrated. It’s great to use in the evening after wearing sunscreen all day as it will clean out your pores and prevent them from becoming blocked.
Opt for the Cala Deep Cleansing Foam Aloe Vera for oiler skin types.
Soak up the sunscreen
Indoors or outdoors, sunny or cloudy, you should ALWAYS be wearing sunscreen! If anti-ageing is your goal, then daily SPF should be your habit.
Need more convincing? Let us explain:
There are two main types of UV rays – ultraviolet A (UVA) which causes all the "fun" signs of premature ageing (wrinkles, sunspots, fine lines & freckles) because it penetrates deeper into the skin…. NO THANK YOU!! and then ultraviolet B (UVB) which causes those nasty sunburns and damages the DNA in skin cells.
If you work indoors and think “I don’t need sunscreen”, think again! Most windows thankfully block UVB...BUT they won’t block UVA rays.
So, put on the sunscreen! Get into that habit! Your skin will thank you for it later!
Drink plenty of water
Keeping your body hydrated is crucial for your health & well-being. It also helps keeps your skin supple, soft and radiant!
Always forgetting? Having a water bottle always full next to you will help or download an app that gives you a reminder- sorted!
Take care of your feet!
Foot care is often forgotten but remember they are the ones that carry you around all day, so they deserve that extra TLC!
Suffer from dry, cracked feet? Soaking your feet first and using the Cala Lava Pumice Stone will help buff away any dry skin.
