Summer Skin

Keeping your skin moisturised in summer is essential, with the higher temperature and the higher humidity, our skin sometimes needs a little extra help. Here are some tips on how you can have your skin glowing and looking incredibly healthy this Summer:

First Step: Exfoliate

Winter can leave skin prone to dryness and flakiness and with the change up into warmer weather, our skin can go into a bit of a meltdown! The first step is to buff away dead, dry and dehydrated skin cells that have built up to calm and balance skin and encourage the release of toxins through the skin with a good exfoliant.

We recommend the EVOHE Face & Body Exfoliant or Espresso Scrub Bar 1-3 times a week to keep skin smooth and supply. Is exfoliating really essential? Yep! Without removing these dead, dry and dehydrated skin cells in the way, your moisturiser struggles to effectively hydrate your skin. So get exfoliating!

Second Step: Hydrate

The second step as you may have guessed is to HYDRATE! But not just any moisuriser will do, compatible hydration is the key. Smothering your skin with heavy vegetable or animal based waxes only provides temporary relief from dryness. Because it tends to sit on top, it may seem that your skin is looking amazing, but your skin simply returns to it’s dry state and you have to re-do it all over again, still with no results.

By using compatible hydration and feeding your skin with oils that are a similar pH to the skin’s natural sebum, your skin will truly aborb and retain moisture for glowing skin. Our favourite is the Omega Body for your body or the Omega 3.6.9 for your face.

A common misconception with skin is that when the skins pores are open that means your skin is too oily, when in reality it’s actually the opposite! Open pores actually indicate that your skin is ‘thirsty’ and is looking for deep, compatible hydration.

Because of this misonception, astringents are often applied to try and close pores, which only leads to further dehydration. It may sound a little crazy to put more oil onto oily skin, but the excess oil is actually a reaction to the stripping of the natural oils, leading it to overproduct and cause more havoc for skin. 

By following these two simple steps, your skin will be Summer ready and glowing to go!
