During summertime, we spend much more time outdoors, the sun is stronger, and we also sweat a lot more than in the colder months. For many of us, our skin also tends to be oilier in hotter weather.
All of these factors create the perfect conditions for trapping dirt and toxins in the skin and can make us more prone to acne and breakouts.
Prolonged exposure to UV rays also damages the skin, causing redness, dryness, and photo-aging.
The combination of heat, sweat, and sun exposure can wreak havoc on our skin, and so it’s even more important during the summer months to be proactive with our skincare routine.
The first important step in a skincare routine is cleansing. UsePURIFY ME in the morning and at night to remove excess oils and dead skin cells.PURIFY ME is very gentle on the skin and contains soothing ingredients like Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Hamamelis - these also work to calm irritation that can be caused by sweat and sun exposure.
The next step is to hydrate the skin withREVIVE ME, deeply replenishing serum. This should be used twice a day as well. REVIVE MEhas a very light texture and is quickly-absorbed into the skin, making it perfect for summer.
During summertime, we sweat and lose vitamins and minerals, so rehydrating the skin is key, both internally, by drinking lots of water, and externally. The sterols inREVIVE ME do just that. It also contains argan stem cells and essential fatty acids, which help reduce wrinkles and keep skin looking young.
If there’s one thing we cannot forget during summer it’s sunscreen. UsePROTECT MEwith SPF30 everyday, reapplying several times a day as needed. This is absolutely the most important step in every skincare routine, since we know that exposure to UV rays can lead to wrinkles, spots, melasma, dryness, and other signs of aging. And, at the very worst, it can also lead to skin cancer. Aside from using sunscreen, it’s also advised to stay out of the sun completely during midday.
PROTECT ME is water and sweat-resistant. It contains ingredients like Chamomile, Melissa, and Rooibos which soften the skin and calm redness, and vitamins A, B5 and E, antioxidants that nourish the skin and prevent wrinkles.PROTECT ME also contains sterols and essential fatty acids, which help lock in moisture.
At nighttime, after a full day of sun and sweat, we need to help skin replenish and recover. UseRECOVER ME, a nourishing night cream that is super-light and suitable for all skin types. It contains hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Coco-Caprylate, antioxidants like Tocopherol, and anti-inflammatory agents like Lavender oil.
Finally, a product that you should keep in your summer handbag isREFRESH ME, a misting spray that helps soothe and hydrate skin. Use this as many times as needed throughout the day for a quick boost.
REFRESH ME contains grapeseed, argan, and ylang ylang oils. It’s anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-aging. It also helps combat sun damage and dark spots.
