Summer can be challenging when it comes to your skin care. Between sweat, humidity, heat, UV rays, and swimming pool chlorine, summer can wreak havoc on your skin. At Shanga, we have the the hot weather skin care tips you need to keep your skin fresh, comfortable and looking great.
Summer skin care essentials
1) Mineral Foundation
Your summer skin care routine absolutely must include a powder based makeup with a sunblock. You need it year round to prevent premature aging and skin cancer, but it’s especially important when it’s warm outside. Not only are you exposed to more sun in the summer, but you also tend to sweat your SPF off, so applying this hot weather skin care must-have every 2 hours.
2) Light-weight Moisturiser
Oil production tends to increase in the summer, but you still need to hydrate your skin properly. Excess oil on the skin is often caused by dehydration. Anyone with oily skin or a spike in summer oil production should use a lightweight moisturiser that refreshes and hydrates without adding shine.
Purifying Moisturiser is the best moisturiser for hot weather and for oily skin. It’s light and refreshing and will help balance the water to oil ratio to keep skin comfortably hydrated and shine-free.
3) Purifying Clay Mask treatment
Due to a spike in summer oil production combined with hot weather skin problems, like chlorine and sweat, acne can be a big issue in the summer. Add a professional grade, clay mask treatment to your warm weather skin care arsenal to deep clean unwanted summer breakouts.
4) Hydrating Skin Mist
One of our best hot weather skin care tips is to keep a bottle of toner like Hydrating Skin Mist with you. This Hydrating spritz will help keep your skin hydrated and cool
5) Summer body skin care
Since warmer weather means more exposed skin, make sure to take care of your skin from neck to toes. Here’s a few of our favourite body care items:
