What is good skin care in summer?
When the warm weather hits, you gladly trade your sweaters for tank tops, swap your boots for sandals, and strip the heavy comforter off your bed. One more thing you may want to change: your skincare routine.
After the harsh weather in springtime, did you crave the sun’s rays to give your face a little color? Summer has finally arrived and you may have already thought about what good skin care in summer would be.
Follow these tips for gorgeous, healthy skin even on summer’s hottest days.
SUMMER SKIN CARE TIP #1: CLEANSE TWICE A DAY
When the air is hot and humid, your skin may be extra oily. And let’s be honest, you also may find that you sweat more during the summer compared to other seasons. If this is the case, you certainly won’t want to let all the excess oil and sweat linger on your skin day after day. So, the best skin care regimen to help keep summer skin matte, yet moisturized, should include cleansing twice daily with a mild facial cleanser. Try the 100% natural HERBSGARDEN Clenasning Milk and Moisturising Micellar Tonic or If you have more problematic skin, I reccomend the Hibiscus Micellar Tonic. First thing in the morning, wash away oil and sweat that can build up on your skin’s surface overnight. Then, before bed, remove makeup and cleanse your skin again.
SUMMER SKIN CARE TIP #2: EXFOLIATE WITH HErbsgarden Peeling 1x/week
Your summer skin can produce excess oil, but it can also look dry and dull if you don’t exfoliate regularly. Try the HERBSGARDEN Facial scrub & AHA peeling which is Gentle exfoliation combined with creamy peeling using AHA fruit acids, can help slough away dead skin cells that can cause the look of dull, lackluster skin. Your skin healthy and clean again.
Summer Skin Care Tip # 3: Replace Your Face Cream!
You don’t need heavy, oily creams for your skin in the summer, as the weather is not as extreme as in winter, and thanks to a lot of fresh nutrients, your skin is in better condition.
Serums will be your real friends in skin care in the summer because they are moist, jelly-like and so easily absorbed. Thanks to their high content of vitamins and active ingredients, your skin becomes tighter and full of life. What’s more, Herbsgarden Multivitamin Serum, with herbs A, C, E, and Q10, also stimulates collagen production, reducing the visible signs of skin aging on your face.
It is worth hydrating inside and out, do not forget to drink 2-3 liters of water a day!
Summer Skin Care Tip # 4: Don’t Leave Without a Sunscreen!
Did you know that most of the signs of skin aging are caused by sunlight, or by harmful UVA and UVB radiation? The importance of regular protection cannot be emphasized enough. Between 11.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. get in the shade, wear sunscreen and, of course, apply protective cream in your skin regularly.
If you can, use a physical sunscreen as chemically produced sunscreens contain chemicals that, when absorbed, can be even more harmful than the sun’s rays. And what is a physical sunscreen? A composition containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which as a mirror reflects the UVA and UVB rays. It does not absorb into the skin but forms a white protective layer. Therefore, many products are now repainted, as is Herbsgarden’s Color Matching Day BB Cream. Its physical light protection is approx. 10 factors, which means it lets through 10 percent of the sun’s rays pass, not 90 percent! Do not use it if you wish to have a good sunbath though, it should be your basic protection for everyday use.
SUMMER SKIN CARE TIP # 5: How to treat sunburns?
Sunburn hurts you in more ways than one. The danger goes far beyond any short-term pain, redness and discomfort, because after the sunburn fades, lasting damage remains.
Sunburn accelerates skin aging and is a leading cause in the majority of cases of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Sunburn is bad news, but the good news is that it’s totally preventable. And the best time to start is today.
But… If you get sunburn.. I reccommend the Herbsgarden lavender cream. Excellent skin protection cream for everyone in the family! It improves the condition of the deeper layers of the skin, reduces inflammatory processes and regenerates damaged skin. The irresistible scent of lavender soothes and harmonizes the soul.
