Many of us have spent the majority of the winter in anticipation of the steadily approaching summer, or as I like to call it “swimming season.” Oh how we have missed the tender rays of the warm summer sun, and Ice-cold refreshments. On the other hand, we also dread the sunburnt skin, and clogged up pores that we all encounter at some point during this time of the year.
There must be some way we can enjoy the benefits of the summer, and yet avoid its drawbacks; right? Right!
After months of trial, error, and finally success, our team at satliva has put together this little list of steps to follow and products to include for a trouble-free summer.
Step 1: Don’t be a stranger to sunscreen
The unquestionable first step for a reliable summer skin care routine is the application of sunscreen. UV rays can damage DNA in skin cells, and accelerate signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Experts in the industry believe that no matter the season, sunscreen is a must, but getting your hands on the right type of sunscreen is a challenge. Using the goodness of red raspberry oil and hemp seed oil, we’ve made the perfect one for you.
RED RASPBERRY FACE CREAM - It acts like a natural sunscreen and UV shield, retains skin elasticity, slows down the ageing process, fights acne, inflammation and other skin diseases.
Step 2: Use a quality moisturiser
An effective moisturiser not only hydrates your skin, it also reduces sun damage, controls oil secretion, and reduces dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. The WATERMELON FACE CREAM is a great addition to your summer skin care routine. It contains the right proportions of watermelon, hemp seed oil, and various essential oils, all working together to protect and nourish your skin.
Step 3: Use a hydrating soap bar
Switching to a hydrating soap bar is the easiest and most beneficial change you can make in the summer. Most store-bought soap bars contain several dehydrating chemicals, leaving your skin dry and damaged. An all natural soap bar such as the HEMP WITH SHEA BUTTER AND ACTIVATED CHARCOAL BODY SOAP BAR can help hydrate, nourish, and repair your skin. The peppermint oil present in the soap bar encourages a cooling sensation, adding to the list of benefits.
Step 4: Use a night-time face and body oil
Contrary to popular belief, oils are of great utility in the summer. Night-time oils in particular, help repair skin damage endured throughout the day, help the skin retain moisture, and prepare the skin to tackle tomorrow's problems with ease. The HEMP WITH JOJOBA BODY OIL is the perfect night-time oil for deeply nourished and hydrated skin. Additionally, it helps prevent two widespread summer skin problems; Clogged pores, and inflamed skin.
Step 5: Drink enough water, eat the right foods
As far as skin care goes, an appropriate diet is paramount to ensure you stay equally cool and fresh on the inside as compared to the outside. Consuming the right amount of water, and eating sufficient fruits and vegetables such as cucumber, lettuce, watermelon, and citrus fruits, is absolutely necessary.
The vast majority of people believe that oil based products are counterproductive in the summer, this is a common misconception. All you need to do is alter the quantity based on the season, and these very same Hemp Seed Oil based products can save you a lot of time, and a lot of easily avoided skin damage.
