Summer is here at last! We are ready for spending lots of time outdoors swimming and hiking as well as just laying back and soaking up the summer sun (with SPF, of course). It's a time when we don't want to spend too much time fussing with our skincare. But the combination of summer's heat and humidity (or dry heat depending on your climate), water and sunscreen call for some extra care. Deep cleansing followed by lightweight moisture is important now. For those in drier climates or who spend a lot of time in the water (like yours truly), more moisture is key. Beyond physically protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays, there is more you can do to make sure you are protecting your skin at the cellular level from the aging and cancer causing effects of the sun.
1) Make sure to thoroughly remove pore clogging buildup from sunscreen with a thorough cleanse each evening using our Oil Cleanser followed by a second cleanse with our Facial Cleanser. The Oil Cleanser will effectively remove oil buildup from SPF and makeup. The Facial Cleanser will thoroughly cleanse any remaining product or debris.
2.) Tone with our Toning Mist or Moroccan Rose Water to refine skin tone and calm skin while prepping the skin for oil application. Both are also ideal for refreshing tired skin throughout the day.
3.) Kahina Brightening Serum works to regulate melanin production, meaning fewer dark spots and discoloration as a result of time spent in the sun.
3.) Keep moisturizing simple with lightweight, yet nourishing Argan Oil. This multipurpose wonder is perfect for the summer months, especially when traveling. Run through hair to protect before getting in the water at the pool or ocean. After moisturizing your face, run any excess through the ends of tresses to tame frizz. Use as a body moisturizer.
4.) Mix or layer your oil with Kahina Facial Lotion. Antioxidant rich Raspberry Seed oil has been shown to contain natural SPF while shea butter seals in moisture to protect skin from harmful environmental factors, such as pollution which increases in the muggy summer months.
5.) When extra moisture is needed, apply our Moisture Mask. Use overnight as a sleeping mask and wake up with plump, soft skin.
