It’s summer - hot, humid and sunny and your skin is going crazy!
Gets dry from too much sun and wind exposure or gets shiny with flourishing blemishes and redness...
It doesn’t have to be like that!
When it comes to summer skincare routines my personal preference is: keep it very, very simple!
Follow these 5 essential steps and you’ll enjoy healthy and happy sunkissed skin all summer long:
Actually nothing much more different than your usual daily routine!
Cleanse your skin after a day on the beach or wherever you’ve decided to enjoy your summer.
If you’re staying in the cityheat, your skin will suffer from pollution, so if you feel like cleansing twice a day - simply follow what your skin tells you and do it if it feels right. With THE FOAM, you don’t have to worry about drying out your skin.
Give your skin plenty of “skin drinks” - several times a day! Versatile floral tonics, and face mists like THE ROSE, are so easy and beneficial for the skin.
Even though there’s high humidity outside, Organic Rose water spray mist will balance the skin surface. Dry skins benefit more from humidity, while oily skin types really suffer, but they still can benefit from the Rose water’s astringent and pore cleansing properties.
During the summer season our skin is overloaded with excess sunscreen compounds, saltwater, excess sebum production and sweat, bronzer particles, such as mica and pigments, and pollution. We have to exfoliate at least once a week to help the skin get rid of all this overload, mixed with dead skincells, that congest the pores and can cause breakouts. THE TOURMALINE EXFOLIATOR is a super performer! A combination of Pineapple and Honey enzymes, minerals and antioxidants, soft exfoliating particles from Cupuacu fruit and supercharged Tourmaline. All formulated to give you perfectly clean, fresh and youthful skin, ready to absorb the active elements from your cream or serum.
TIP! You can blend THE TOURMALINE EXFOLIATOR with honey, organic yoghurt, coconut, soya or goat milk and use it as a 5 minutes enzymatic mask.
During the summer season we don’t really need layering a lot of products. Lightweight treatments perform best. Squalane based serums, such as THE ROSE SERUM and the ultralight L’AZUL skin refining serum work wonders and are absolutely enough to cover most skin needs. Light and active at the same time, they sink quickly into the skin, leaving no oily residue, but a wonderful skin finish. The pure natural actives work “botox”-like to give you your dream skin!
You can apply your sunscreen on the top of these serums before heading to the beach.
With THE Au SERUM - a ture powerhous! These drops of pure highend, coldpressed Organic oils, actives as Q10, Carrot, Algae and 24k gold are skin energy boosters and effectively combat skin damages and wrinkles. Perfect for the summer as a stay-alone serum, or on the top of your moisturizer, blended in your bronzer, foundation or bronzing powder. A true must have for those healthy summer glow!
TIP! For moisture effect: Use all your serums on skin moistened with THE ROSE. You can also blend some drops of serum with a splash of rose water in your hands and apply to your face.
