When it comes to summer we will, more often than not, change our wardrobe for the new season. In the same way we change our wardrobe, changing our skincare regime in summer months can make sure our skin shines and always looks its best.
Summer brings with it a unique set of challenges for the skin. There is (hopefully!) increased exposure to sunlight, more wear from being outdoors, salt water from sea swimming, chlorine for lazing in pools, all of which when combined leave our skin feeling dry, worn and damaged.
Hydrated skin is happy skin and it’s keeping the skin hydrated, with natural organic skincare products, which is the key to keeping it healthy and happy.
There’s no perfect fit when it comes to skincare. We all have different skin that responds in different ways. What’s important is finding a skincare solution you’re happy, comfortable and confident with.
The following tips will help whatever your skin type and leave you glowing inside and out…
Nurture & Nourish. Through summer, try to avoid products that leave your skin feeling dry. The skin needs to be nurtured and nourished to leave it looking its best. Using natural organic oil is the best way to do this.
Washing your face with water is great to leave you feeling refreshed but it won’t cleanse or nourish your skin. A good oil helps works with the building blocks of our skin – essential fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides – to keep it moist and soft.
After you shower use an organic body oil to restore your skin’s balance. Our award-winning organic body oil contains arnica, apricot kernel oil and vitamin E-rich evening primrose oil to rejuvenate and nourish; plus plantain, calendula and patchouli – all prized for their ability to promote skin cell regeneration.
Protect. Prevention is better than a cure and protecting your skin from the elements is a sure-fire way to leave it looking great. The most important area to protect is the face. Don’t go out in the morning without an organic daily face oil or an intensive mosturiser. Both our organic daily face oil and line-softener intensive formula are packed full of antioxidants and natural ingredients with rejuvenative properties. If you’re skin is especially sensitive to the sun, it’s always a good idea to apply an SPF cream that matches your skin type.
Replenish. Recovery is a vital aspect to feeling and looking good. Just like your muscles after exercise, your skin needs time to recover. Replenish your skin with a weekly face mask. This deep-cleaning treat will leave you feeling wonderful. Our superfood face mask is a wonderfully uplifting and rejuvenating face mask to detoxify and repair the skin. Brimming with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, and so rich in Vitamin E, it is the perfect weekly detox.
The secret is to find what works for your skin, makes you look incredible and leaves you feeling fantastic from head to toe.
Our skin has a hydro-lipidic film formed by a complex lipid matrix. This lipidic matrix keeps the skin moist, soft and to protect it from the damage of external environmental elements including ultraviolet rays, A and B.
It’s essential, especially in the summer when our body in much more exposed to the the day light (thank goodness!) and the penetration of ultraviolet rays, to keep the skin nurtured and nourished. That’s why we recommend the body and face oils.
As well as your skin, don’t forget your hair! It needs care and love as well… Don’t use aggressive shampoos, but very delicate ones. After swimming wash it getting rid of sea salt or chlorine and then spray on it some light organic hair oil to protect it. You can add hair oil also before going into the water, to reduce the risk of damage.
And if the feet are dried and cracked because of the heat or walking on hot sand and rocks, rub them with Inlight Foot & Leg balm before going to bed. It’ a balm for them, not only to nourish them but also to help give you a deep relaxing sleep.
