The dark days of the winter are officially behind us, and summer is so close we could almost touch it. With the change in temperature comes the need to change our skincare routines, as winter-related issues make way for summer-related concerns. In the warmer months, most of us look towards skincare products that contain ingredients that offer that coveted summer glow, whilst protecting our skin from the harmful effects of UV rays. But if it’s clean beauty that you’re into, what are the best natural ingredients to keep your skin in tip top condition throughout the warm days to come?
• Aloe vera: After a day in the sun, you might find that your skin is a little on the pink side. If this is the case, you’ll want to reach for a product containing aloe vera. Aloe vera gel has antibacterial properties, and it also helps to prevent your skin from peeling, making it a great choice for slathering over sun-damaged skin. The high water content also goes a long way in helping to hydrate your parched skin. Additionally, it contains multiple vitamins, including A, B, C, D, and E.
• Cucumber: Known for its cooling properties, cucumber is a refreshing choice for summer-worthy skincare products. A gel or toner containing cucumber will help to soothe irritated or sunburnt skin. Anti-oxidant rich, it also helps to prevent damage to your skin caused by free radicals.
• Papaya: This sweet, aromatic, and fragrant fruit deserves a place in your skincare routine just as much as it does in your fruit salad. The enzymes in the fruit can help reduce inflammation, which is perfect for those sun-induced seasonal breakouts. It also helps to make your skin radiant, helping to ensure that your sun-kissed skin glows. An added bonus? It smells divine.
• Argan oil: Extracted from the Argania spinose tree, argan oil carries a multitude of benefits for the skin. It’s a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, thus helping to promote skin healing and take care of signs of sun damage. It’ll also help reduce the signs of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, while simultaneously hydrating your skin.
