As the sun shines brighter and the temperature rises, it's time to switch up your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy and glowing during the summer months. At Livskraft, we understand the importance of embracing the season and adapting your skincare regimen accordingly. Let’s dive into the essentials of summer skincare, focusing on the significance of sunscreen, the ideal exfoliation routine, and how to choose the right serum. Plus, we've handpicked some summer-appropriate products from our collection to help you achieve that radiant glow.
The Importance of sunscreen
Summer skincare begins and ends with one essential product: sunscreen. The sun's UV rays can be harsh on your skin, causing premature ageing, pigmentation and damage. That's why applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen should be a non-negotiable step in your daily routine – all year round! Remember to reapply every two to four hours if you're spending time outdoors or sitting by the window..
Summer Exfoliation Routine
Exfoliation is a key element of any skincare routine, and during the summer, it can help remove sweat, excess oil, and dead skin cells that can clog pores. However, you may not need to exfoliate as frequently during the summer as in the winter. The warm weather can naturally increase cell turnover, so you don't want to overdo it.
A gentle exfoliation routine once or twice a week during the summer months is a good rule of thumb. Sensitive skin may benefit from less frequent exfoliation, and remember not to scrub too hard! Our go-to exfoliant is our Nourish Shea Scrub. The simple formula contains nourishing antioxidants and natural antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. This delightfully scented concoction helps your skin appear plump and evenly toned and minimises moisture loss for a fresh, hydrated look and feel.
Choose lighter serums and moisturisers for summer
One of the joys of summer is the natural humidity in the air, which means your skin is less likely to become dry compared to the dry winter months. To prevent your skin from feeling heavy, oily or clogged it can be wise to switch to less heavy products during the summer.
The Livskraft Glow Face Serum is our lighter oil, great for wearing alone, under makeup or under a heavier cream at night time if you're after extra rejuvenation (particularly for naturally dry skin types). Massage this lovely lightweight serum into damp skin to help absorption.
Unveil Your Radiant Glow
We believe that glowing skin is a reflection of a healthy lifestyle, and our products are carefully curated to help you achieve just that. Summer is a time for sun, fun, and adventure, and your skincare routine should complement this season of joy. By prioritising sunscreen, adjusting your exfoliation routine, and choosing lighter moisturisers or serums, you can enjoy a summer full of glowing, healthy skin. Explore our handpicked summer-appropriate products from Livskraft to make your summer skincare journey even more enjoyable. Here's to a season of radiant beauty! Oh, and – stay hydrated!
