The temperature is on the rise and fashion designers have us baring more skin than ever this season. So how do we get bare worthy skin a la our favourite Jennifers (yes, that would be Aniston and Lopez)? Two words: natural skin oils. In case you haven’t heard, emollient oils like Jojoba and Sunflower seed oils are the new ‘it’ ingredients in body skincare. Why? Because natural oils are rich in lipids and nutrients which can help repair the skin barrier and turn dry parched skin silky soft. Want to make sure you’re glowing in time for summer? Start by simplifying your skincare routine. Rather than investing in a lineup of fancy products that don’t work, shop smart—for daily lotions and creams that do the job right.
Just keep these tips in mind and you’ll be set for summer before you can even think about bathing suit shopping.
HOW TO USE NATURAL SKIN OILS FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN
Use a Light Lotion that Packs a Punch The last thing you want on a hot, sticky day is to slather on a thick, heavy lotion right out of the shower. But the fact is, you need to moisturize your skin year-round, even in the summer.
Skinfix Daily Lotion is a silky, luxuriously lightweight lotion packed with Jojoba, Sunflower Seed and Grape Seed oils as well as Shea Butter and Chamomile Extract that helps quench, soothe and protect your skin. It goes on silky smooth and absorbs quickly to leave your skin feeling like it should—hydrated and supple.
Ditch Perfumed Skincare and Go Au Naturel Sure, they smell sweet but fragrances can definitely irritate your skin. Instead of using soaps and creams full of artificial scent, look for lotions and washes, such as Skinfix Cleansing Oil Wash, that are fragrance-free and use natural oils to make your skin smooth.
Remember this beauty trick: Fragrance is for perfume, not your skincare routine. Plus, if you think about it, the smell in your soap or cream actually conflicts with your favourite signature scent.
Don’t Forget to Moisturize Your Hands You should definitely moisturize your hands daily especially if you are a frequent hand washer. Antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizing gels are extra drying, no matter what time of year.
Skinfix Hand Repair Cream is like medicine for your dry hands. It uses emollient oils and colloidal oatmeal which helps relieve dryness and itchiness on contract. A little goes a long way with this clinically tested hand cream. It goes deep and leaves lasting protection on hands, even with frequent hand washing.
Make Sure to Treat Your Skin The heat is on and let’s face it, with higher temps, we tend to schvitz a bit more than usual, especially in those unmentionable areas. Skinfix Rash Repair Balm is the never-leave-home-without-it solution for all your skin irritation needs. It soothes and protects skin from wetness, friction and irritation on contact.
You’ll need it to tackle skin chafing, a tough workout, and the minor burns from a rough shave or even post-waxing. This natural, hydrocortisone and steroid-free balm is loaded with skin-saving natural active ingredients that calm and protect skin.
