Summer is a great time to unwind, recharge those batteries and get back into gear. Whether you're sweating it out at the gym or taking time off at the beach, being meticulous about your beauty regimen is paramount. Protecting your skin and hair from excess heat and sun is not just essential for looking better today, but also 10 years from now when the neglect can really catch up. Conatural helps put you on track with their top tips for summer skin and hair care.
The strong summer sun can affect your pretty looks with harmful UVA and UVB rays. Keratin packed Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner help protect your hair from harm when the sun is out to wreck it. Additionally, prevention is the best: keep your hair protected from the sun as much as you can. Cover up with a hat, scarf or umbrella to stave off excess heat and sun rays.
Hot showers dry out the skin, whereas cool showers are great for keeping your pores unclogged after excessive sweating, hence avoiding breakouts. Leaving water to cool down to room temperature in a bucket can be significantly cooler than that straight from the pipe. Use Conatural’s Daily Essentials Lavender & Chamomile Face Wash in the shower to soothe frazzled nerves and gently cleanse oil from clogged pores.
Keeping a face mist around can be a lifesaver in the summer, when temperatures rise and your skin could really use a boost of hydration and freshness throughout your day. Try Conatural’s Pure Rose Water, with no artificial essences or fragrances. It will tone, hydrate and refresh your skin, giving it that instant boost!
Fair complexions get freckles while darker complexions get unevenly pigmented when exposed to sunlight, and both conditions are incredibly stubborn and difficult to get rid of. Again, prevention is key: the bare minimum is to use a sunblock, even when indoors (sunlight is everywhere!). If you have developed dark sun spots, Conatural’s Saffron Complexion Builder is great for people with normal to oily skin to restore an even complexion.
Humidity in the summer is the worst thing that can happen to any hairdo. Keep your hair hydrated from within with Conatural’s Intense Luster Hair Oil & Conatural’s Organic Argan Oil to avoid frizz caused by excess humidity. A finishing oil or serum that seals in your style and repels moisture from the air is an excellent way to stay smooth and styled.
PROTECT THAT PUCKER
Your lip’s tissue is delicate, and the sun does nothing to love our pouts. Contrary to popular belief, being outdoors in the heat can wreck more havoc on your pout than blustering cold weather. Stay protected with a lusciously rich lip balm (such as Conatural’s Organic Lip Balm) and regularly reapply especially when outdoors. Avoid shimmery or glossy sticks and glosses which attract UV rays and further dry out and discolour lips. Discoloured lips can see a new day with Conatural’s new Natural Lip Scrub which exfoliates dry, flaky lip skin, revealing brighter, pinker lips when used regularly.
