Skincare Tips for Staycation or Vacation!

With summer now here many of us are changing things up – even if it's for a stay-at-home summer break. Whether you're bringing holiday clothes down from the loft or dusting off a deck chair for a chill in the garden, it’s a great time to make some strategic swaps in your skincare routine. Here are a few small changes which made now will see you glowing all summer long!

 

1. Ramp up your cleanse

Along with the great protection, sunscreens mean an additional layer of product to take off at night, so it’s time to kick the cleansing up a gear. A quick swipe with a wipe isn’t going to cut (for your face or the planet) and many skintellectuals swear by double-cleansing (using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser such as our Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser). If that sounds a little too much like hard work, a really good cream or balm cleanser should be up to the job.

2. Polish away dull skin cells

If you’re after a summer glow, then exfoliation is a must. As we age, the rate at which our skin cells renew and slows down. Skin can quickly become dull and tired-looking. Exfoliating helps this process along so that your skin can absorb moisture more effectively to look refreshed and dewier. Smooth skin is more light reflective which in turn makes it look healthier and younger. We recommend exfoliating your skin with our Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator at least once a week and up to 2-3 times a week, depending upon your age and skin type. Our exfoliator uses natural rolled lavender flowers, not micro-beads to gently lift dead skin cells.

 

3. Lighten up with a summer-weight moisturiser

Summer is the time to swap your moisturiser for something a little lighter. Try our Daily Moisturiser for a light-weight but effective rehydration. If your skin is dry add a few drops of Facial Oil to give it a much needed boost. Massage this in throughly and your skin will thank you for the added oxygen and nutrient rush you've given it. 

 4. Try a Facial Oil

If you've never used a facial oil you really should give one a go. A facial oil delivers a real boost of moisture and protects from dehydration. Our Replenishing Facial Oilis made from a rich blend of natural oils including Lunaria Seed Oil which contains a natural peptide to boost cells renewal and replenish the upper layers of the skin. Massage a few drops into the skin for a few minutes a day, to effectively replace lost oils and protect from dehydration, especially important in warm  sunny weather.
