Not sure how to layer skincare products during summer? Here’s a guide to explain how to apply our summer skincare essentials to make sure you’re benefiting from their skin-boosting nutrients:
Cleanser & Exfoliator
You should start your skincare routine by gently cleansing your skin in the morning and evening to remove any dirt, make-up and excess oil. Our plant-based Cream Cleanser is made with nourishing Avocado and hydrating Aloe Vera to cleanse your skin and leave it feeling refreshed and soft. Top tip: apply the cleanser to damp skin and place a warm cloth over your face to open your pores. Gently remove the cleanser with the cloth.
Once or twice a week, intensify your cleansing routine using our natural Skin Brightening Exfoliator with bamboo powder. This will remove dead skin cells and polish your skin, leaving it feeling super smooth.
Rosehip Oil/Antioxidant Oil
Oils should always be applied after cleansing, but before using moisturisers and creams, to allow them to soak deep into the epidermis.
Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil is one of the most effective plant oils for skin repair and restoration, and is 100% natural so safe to use on even the most sensitive skin types. It can help to fade the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scarring and sun damage and nourish dry skin. Apply 1-2 drops of the oil after cleansing by massaging in circular movements with your fingertips. Our Rosehip Oil is a dry oil, so won’t leave your skin feeling greasy and provides a good base for make-up.
If you live in a city and are concerned about the effects of pollution on your skin, you should apply a facial oil that is packed with antioxidants to help repair any damage and restore your skin’s defense barrier. Our Antioxidant Facial Oil contains CityshieldⓇ Anti-pollution Complex, a blend of three powerful natural oils that help to prevent premature ageing and protect your skin from the elements. Find out more about CityshieldⓇ here. Again, this should be applied after cleansing in small circular movements.
Day & Night Cream
Once you’ve cleansed and applied your facial oil, you may feel like you don’t need any further moisturisation, and this depends entirely on your skin type. If you need more, this is when you should apply our Organic Anti-Ageing Day & Night Cream. Its blend of Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil and Calendula will nourish and protect your skin during the day and hydrate and repair your skin at night. It also contains Red Algae, which offers natural UVA protection, which is essential during summer.
Finally, after bathing, you should apply a rich body butter. During summer whilst your skin is more exposed to sunlight and air conditioning, you should ensure you replenish any lost moisture daily. Our Body Butter’s blend of Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Babassu will leave your skin looking and feeling nourished. Top tip: don’t forget your feet! We put them through a lot during flip-flop weather, so remember to moisturise them too. Apply a generous layer of body butter to your feet just before bed and pull on some cotton socks. By the morning your feet will be super soft!
