Moisturisers are an important part of any skincare routine, but they can be especially helpful in summer. The hot weather can dry out your skin, leaving it feeling tight and uncomfortable. Generally, you should use the same moisturiser that you use all year round, as a good face cream will be made to take into account different weather and temperature conditions. The things that do need to be checked though are effective cleansing, and using a high protection sunscreen, plus reapplying it regularly.
Many people think that they need a lighter moisturiser for the summer, but this is not the case as skin can still get dry. This is because the sun can affect the skin by taking away moisture so may leave it on the dry side, and any tanning can result in flaky skin in the days afterwards. So, it is important to always keep skin moisturised properly.
At Nakin we have two fantastic face creams that are perfect for both summer and winter alike and you would choose one based upon your skin type. Most of us have a mixture of skin types and if your skin is on the oilier side, normal, combination or sensitive then we have our Matt Formula Face Cream, which is a big choice for many in summer. If your skin is on the drier side then instead, we recommend our Active Dew Cream which is also for normal, combination and sensitive skin types. Both of them are exceptional face creams in summer and all year round due to the high-quality plant ingredients, and because they are free from so many unwanted cosmetic ingredients. This includes parabens, silicones, PEGs, retinoids, mineral oils, artificial fragrance and colour. They are both vegan, cruelty free and made in the UK.
At Nakin our moisturisers are formulated with high-quality botanicals, so they are light enough to not feel heavy on your skin, but still hydrating and nourishing, which includes combating the effects of the sun and heat.
We would describe them as lightweight creams that contain plant extracts and hyaluronic acid, which help to restore and maintain the skin’s natural barrier. This helps to lock in moisture, keeping your skin hydrated all day long. They are also filled with antioxidants and nutrients to keep skin looking fresh and youthful. The light textures are highly nutritious but without feeling heavy or greasy on skin. Remember to add a broad-spectrum sunscreen on top, to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
As we mentioned earlier, it is important to pay extra attention to cleansing in the summer months as our skin does get dirtier in this season. This comes from spending more time outside in nature, sweating more and using sunscreen, plus the usual daily grime from pollution.
