As the summer sun graces us with its warmth, it’s essential to prioritise skincare and sun protection while also ensuring your skin stays healthy and vibrant. At Community Health Stores, we believe in the power of natural health to nurture your skin from the inside out, giving you a radiant glow that reflects vitality and well-being.
Maxine, Manager and Beauty Therapist at CHS shares her valuable insights on how to care for your skin during the sunny summer days.
Hydrating your skin is a year-round necessity, but it becomes especially crucial in the summer heat. Maxine recommends choosing products that won’t add extra oil to your skin. Opt for hydrating solutions like gel toners that refresh and restore your skin’s natural pH balance without overwhelming it.
Hemp seed oil, available in convenient capsule form, is highlighted by Maxine as a fantastic addition to your summer skincare routine. Not only does it contribute to a plump and youthful appearance, but it also supports overall wellness and vitality.
While sunscreen is a non-negotiable part of your summer skincare routine, it’s not the only player in the game. Maxine emphasizes the importance of covering up with hats, sunglasses, and protective clothing.
You can also look at supplements like astaxanthin – One of the notable features of astaxanthin is its ability to provide protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. It is often referred to as an “internal sunscreen” due to its potential to protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays. It’s important to note that while astaxanthin may provide some level of protection against UV radiation, it should not be considered a replacement for traditional sunscreens.
When it comes to makeup, lighten the load and let your radiant skin shine through. Maxine recommends opting for natural lip balms and transitioning to a natural deodorant with a citrus fragrance for a refreshing summer feel.
