Summer Skincare Routine

Summer Skincare Routine

Summer is coming! Finally! After a long, cold winter there’s no better thing than realising the summer heat is on the way. With the change of season comes many environmental changes: humidity, heat, daylight, pollens! It’s not unusual to also notice a change in your skin’s condition too.

Come summer, revisiting your daily skincare regime is essential. To make it easy for you, we’ve put together the best summer skincare routine kit! By taking care of your skin daily, weekly, and monthly through summer you’ll feel and look amazing.

Daily

Cleansing and moisturising your skin on a daily base is vital for keeping your skin’s moisture and oil levels in check during summer. The heat and humidity can cause your pores to produce excess oil, making you feel bogged down. Using a light cleanser and moisturiser daily is excellent for managing the skin’s oil levels. You’ll also want to make sure the moisturiser you’re using offers UV protection. Applying a sunscreen every morning helps to protect the skin from UV damage such as premature aging, wrinkles, and sunburn.

Earth Skinfoods’ Ultra-Light Summer Cleanser and Moisturiser has been designed with the hot seasons in mind.  Both are fragrance free and perfect for sensitive skin! These two products are an excellent base for your summer skincare routine!

Weekly

The excessive heat in Australian summers can lead to a build-up of dry skin or oily pores in summer time, even if you’re using cleansing and moisturising products daily. That’s why we recommend using a light exfoliate once a week (but no more than that!). Exfoliating will rid your skin of any build ups, and assist with keeping a tan intact.

Earth Skinfoods have crafted a beautiful calming face and body scrub which is perfect for revitalising your whole body this summer! Add this to your summer skincare routine and see for yourself how different your skin feels.

Monthly

Truth be told, most of us aren’t too bad at remembering to cleanse and moisturise on a daily basis, we’re even not too bad at using a scrub semi-regularly either. What we do forget to do is take some time out once a month to give our skin a deep cleanse. Using a deep cleansing face mask once a month is the perfect way to keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant during the hot summer months.

Earth Skinfoods’ clay masks cleanse, refresh, purify and tone skin that has been fighting humidity and heat. Treat yourself once a month with 15 minutes of downtime and give your skin the TLC it deserves.

Handy Hints

Keep a water-based spritzer in your gym bag, on your work desk, or in your purse. These are perfect for giving your body or face a quick refresh if the heat is getting you down!
