As we enter the summer season, we need to be more attentive to our skincare routine and help ensure we are hydrated in summer. No one wants to be ashy, do they? Here are some summer skincare tips for brown beauties:
We are more prone to sweat in the heat. This can then clog up our pores if we do not cleanse regularly.
Using a gentle daily cleanser helps get rid of impurities built up throughout the day. We have some facial scrubs on our website.
2. Serums For Summer Skincare
After cleansing, using a skin serum on your face helps to deliver rich ingredients directly to your skin.
Serums are especially suitable for this as they are formed of smaller molecules that can seep through into deeper levels of your skin. We offer skin serums here.
This is often the first, and sometimes only, step people go to when thinking of keeping their skin moisturised.
However, cleansing and using serums are just as important as applying moisture to your skin.
Using a moisturiser comes towards the end of your summer skincare routine -both for your face and body. Check out the range of moisturisers we offer.
4. Sunscreen Summer Skincare
There has long been a notion that brown beauties don't need to apply sunscreen because of melanin.
However, this is not true.
The UV rays from the sun can still damage your skin if you have melanin.
Finding a sunscreen that is designed with the intention of serving brown skin tones is a key part of this.
Black Girl Sunscreen offers this, for example. It uses SPF 30, which blocks 97% of UVB rays. Sunscreen should be the last step in your summer skincare routine.
We hope these tips help you keep hydrated this summer!
