How to take care of your skin in summer naturally

Cleansing is your skin saviour when temperatures are soaring

Summer has well and truly arrived in the UK this week and temperatures are set to soar. As the mercury creeps ever higher, your skin can really feel the effects of higher temperatures, greater humidity and air pollutants which can all lead to breakouts, irritation and generally not-so-pleasant-feeling skin. There's a quick win you can use every day to help combat these summer skin stressors: the Green Clay Cleansing Balm. If you're new to using a balm, now is a great time to see how it can cleanse your skin. Here's how to take care of your skin in summer naturally.

Removes daily impurities and pollution

The french green clay in the Green Clay Cleansing Balm is a hero ingredient, particularly in these warm months of the year as it's fantastic at drawing out impurities.

A side note on meteorology: in warm hot weather, the air pressure increases which traps air-borne pollutants and causes the greyish heat haze you can see over cities and urban areas in the summer. This is where the french green clay comes to the rescue. It contains negatively charged molecules that cling to the positively charged molecules in dirt and impurities on your skin, gently whisking them away, removing dead skin cells and leaving skin positively brighter and healthier, helping to banish breakouts and blemishes.

The organic virgin coconut oil has high antibacterial and antioxidant properties and also removes daily impurities and binds to the oil in any make-up to gently cleanse your skin.

Nourishes and soothes hard-working skin

In higher temperatures and humidity, your skin is working even harder to regulate body temperature and water balance. The organic apricot oil in the Cleansing Balm contains both linoleic acid which strengthens the skin's barrier and oleic acid which softens the skin. The organic beeswax is a powerful anti-inflammatory and provides protection against pollutants. Both are high in vitamin E which promote healthy new skin cells too. 

Refreshes and calms the skin

Always remove the Cleansing Balm with the Organic Muslin Facial Cloth and you'll experience the gently buffing and exfoliating qualities of the muslin weave. The velvety-soft texture of the Cleansing Balm and the gentle buffing of the Muslin Cloth leaves your skin so clean and refreshed - just what you need after a long hot day and the build up of impurities, make-up and SPF on your skin. And the perfect way to finish before applying a couple of drops of the Organic Facial Oil to finish your daily skincare ritual.

This is how you could feel

"I have hypersensitive skin and have struggled to find the right skincare products for a long time... It took approx. a week for my skin to adjust to the cleansing balm paired with the cloth because of my skin type but now don't experience any irritation. My complexion has improved and loving how my skin feels - the ingredients feel so nourishing and love that there are no synthetics or essential oils (damaged my skin by using tea tree oil)." - JJ, 5-star customer review
