Summer is the perfect time for a healthy skin glow. However, with rising temperatures and increasing humidity comes the need to protect your skin. Your skin is your body’s first line of defence against the unfavourable aspects of a Middle Eastern summer, so a little extra time spent on a skin routine to protect your skin barrier from environmental factors will keep you sane. Just a few simple changes in your everyday skincare regimen can set you up to glow throughout the season. For a true and effortless summer glow, the Herbal Essentials ‘Radiance’ range is your go-to. Featuring an illuminating mask, gentle renewal scrub, miracle cleanser and brightening cream, you can add these mineral rich summer essentials into your skincare regimen this season.
Below are three essential tips from training Dermatologist and Herbal Essentials Ambassador, Dr. Kemi Fabusiwa, to help you care for your precious skin, this summer.
1. Exfoliation and brightening is key for a radiant glow. Exfoliation helps to remove the upper layer of dead and dying skin cells paving the way for fresher, younger skin underneath. And for brightening, you would need ingredients such as vitamin C and E which also helps rejuvenate skin cells. As with anything in skincare, consistency is key. The right skincare routine alongside a healthy balanced diet and protection from the sun will eventually lead to healthier glowing skin.
2. For people with dry skin, a hydrating cleanser that contains moisturising elements such as the Herbal Essentials Miracle Cleanser with Sunflower Oil & Glycerin should be perfect. The balm cleanser leaves your skin feeling clean and moisturized. The Herbal Essentials Himalayan Micellar Water is a favourite for those wanting an effective method to remove makeup and cleanse the skin gently without causing irritation.
3. For skin that’s prone to breakouts, using a clay mask to draw out impurities from deep within the pores will be great. The Herbal Essentials Illuminating Mask with Papain and Honey is perfect for exfoliation and rejuvenation, and for a brighter, revitalised complexion.
At a recent 2021 blind consumer panel trial over a period of four weeks involving 50 participants, the Miracle Cleanser proved to be effective in improving skin elasticity and bounce with 84% of the participants, 96% found it effective in removing makeup, 74% found it effective in improving skin tone, 96% found it calming and soothing to the skin, and 92% reported that their skin looked radiant.
