We can feel it in the air… summer is here, and temperatures are soaring. This usually means countless dips in the ocean and pool, along with cooling down with the air-con/ fans turned on full blast.
One of the few perils when it comes to lapping up the nice weather in summer is that it can take a toll on your skin. Specifically, all skin types including sensitive, dry, combination and even oily can be susceptible to dehydration. So, here are some easy ways to keep moisture in this season.
Layer your serums – Another way to up hydration levels in your skin is by using multiple serums at once. The trick to not overloading your skin is to layer your serums in order of the lightest first, then follow with anything that’s heavier in texture. Also, take the time to massage each serum into your skin and let your skin fully absorb the product before you apply the next one. Try our quandong green booster serum after cleansing and once it has melted into skin – followed by our australian blue cypress face nectar.
Try a face mist – The fastest way to rehydrate parched skin from the outside – and perhaps the most enjoyable – is with a face mist. Don’t underestimate the appearance of the watery texture; they’re usually packed with vitamins and minerals that can improve your skin health in the long run. We might be biased, but our herbal face tonic is one of our favourite products to use through summer. It’s seriously refreshing, and features a cocktail of good-for-you ingredients like green tea, aloe vera, grapeseed oil and witch hazel to protect skin and hydrate it in the long run. Top tip – keep a bottle of face mist in the fridge for a zingy pick-me-up, especially when you’re feeling tired!
Choose your foundation wisely – If you wear foundation on the daily, it might be important to reconsider what kind of base you’re applying to keep dehydration at bay, especially during the warmer months. Currently, we’re obsessed with using our quinoa water foundation, which feels just as luxurious as it sounds. Quinoa is the star ingredient in the silky formula, which boosts skin with vitamins A, B, and E, and the finish is naturally-matte but won’t leave your complexion looking cakey.
