Natural Skincare for That Summer Glow
Cooler temperatures usually mean drier air, and this is usually when we start regularly moisturizing our skin with lotion or body oil—but your skin needs to be well-hydrated all year, particularly during summer. Here’s how to give your skin what it needs with summer glow skincare.
What Summer Does to Your Skin
Exposing your skin in summer is a great time to put your vitamin D production into high gear. While moist summer air does offer some hydration, it also causes your pores to open, which can invite oxidation damage. Higher temperatures also cause your skin to produce more sebum, which can cause breakouts.
Then there’s the sun, which can prematurely age your skin with spots, discoloration, and wrinkles, not to mention cause sunburn.
The All-Important Moisture Barrier
Your skin is your body’s largest organ and contains several layers that protect you from environmental damage. In order for your skin to accomplish this important job, it has to have the right nourishment.
Nourished skin will have a strong moisture barrier. This barrier must be in place in order for your skin to repair, renew, and maintain its appearance, elasticity, firmness, and tone. Without it, skin looks and feels older than it should.
Skin that feels rough, looks dry and irritated, or has a dull appearance is the skin most likely to benefit from the help that natural moisturizer products provide.
What Skin Needs to Thrive
A great way to ensure your skin is properly hydrated is to nourish it from the inside. You can do this by drinking more water and consuming healthy fats such as avocado and flaxseed oils.
There are also many products you can apply to your skin to add moisture. If you’ve been looking for natural skincare products to support your skin this summer, you should know that there are certain ingredients that will benefit you more than others may.
One example are the kinds of oils used. Any clean body lotion should contain oils that will absorb quickly and which are also able to penetrate into deeper skin layers. Some examples are apricot kernel, jojoba, olive, and coconut oil.
A product that contains natural anti-inflammatory ingredients such as aloe and calming essential oils will help to tame redness and irritation.
