Summer is here and so are heat, humidity, and air conditioning. Most people worry about sun exposure during the summer months and give very little thought to what changes in temperature, humidity and constant exposure to air conditioning mean and their impact on your skin care routine.
Here are some of our fast fixes and summer skin care tips beyond using sun protection:
1. Exfoliate dead skin cells
Using an exfoliator not only helps you to get rid of dead skin cells, but it also prevents back and arm acne using Verdure Conditioning Body Scrub to exfoliate and ensure that layers of sunscreen and any lotion buildup are removed.
2. Cleanse deep into the pores
Keep pores clear from possible congestion, avoid form-fitting clothes that hold heat and moisture close to your skin, and put on clean clothes after perspiring heavily.
3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Depending on where you live, summertime can be synonymous with humidity or dry heat. Either way, sweating is definitely something that we all contend with. Parched and dehydrated skin not only looks dull but is also prone to more damage when exposed to the sun. Moisturise your skin daily to keep it hydrated with our Verdure Conditioning Body Cream.
4. Moisturise your skin on a daily basis
Don’t forget about your hair and hands. Our Verdure Moisturising Oil, a multipurpose moisturiser that packs a punch in hydration without a heavy or greasy feel is a miracle worker as a pre-shampoo moisture treatment and moisturiser. Massage onto the ends of your locks, leave it on for at least 20 minutes, shampoo and rinse off. A day before wash day, apply the oil to damp hair for the slicked back model look (that includes you too, gentlemen). A little goes a long way.
