SCOUT Organic Active Beauty - 3 Tips to Help You Combat Summer Skincare Woes

3 Tips to Help You Combat Summer Skincare Woes

I love the summer months! But I have friends and collegues who bemoan the heat and humidity and long for the return of cooler, more temperate days because their skin starts reacting to not only the climate but also having to wear sunscreen a lot more. 

So let's delve into a nice, calming summer skincare routine to see you through. In this blog we are going to address the common issues of hyperpigmentation, sunspots, warm weather blemishes and now we have maskne due mask wearing.

Let’s reclaim glowing skin for Summer!

1. Combat Maskne with Daily Skin Cleansing

Having to wear more Sunscreen and also now masks it is even more important to keep skin as clean as possible to prevent skin congestion by choosing the right skin cleansing products.

We recommend cleansing morning and night with our Superfruit Exfoliating Wash Off Cleanser with Organic Blueberry Extract to help prevent sun damage, pollution build-up, and environmental stresses. Try doing a double cleanse for stubborn sunscreen and makeup removal.

2. Choose a Mineral Rich Organic Moisturiser

In a previous Summer focussed blog I mentioned changing to a lighter moisturiser during the Summer months.  This is something I like to do.  Heavier skincare products along with sweat and humidity can lead to breakouts when combined with Australian summer heat.

Our Balance & Replenish Light Moisturiser is perfect for the summer months, as it is both light and luxurious, containing a mix of vitamin and mineral-rich organic ingredients to hydrate, calm and replenish the skin.

3. SPF Makeup is Key

Sunscreen with a good SPF rating is your best friend in summer whenever you venture out into the elements. However, in addition to incorporating a sunblock into your daily beauty regime, also ensure your mineral makeup includes zinc and titanium dioxide to further avoid incidental sun damage.

My favourite go to Foundation for the Summer months is our fuss-free powder foundation  This loose mineral powder foundation is going to provide the right coverage all Summer long.  Whether you desire a light coverage or more it is buildable.  With the added bonus of and SPF 20 keep this in your beach bag for use on the go. Like going from the beach to a balmy afternoon cocktail. No added fillers allowing your skin to breathe yet additionally protected.

Pressed Powder Foundation with Vitamin E & Jojoba

Our lightweight and long-wearing Mineral Pressed Powder with an SPF15 rating will deliver additional sun protection all year round. Key ingredients include malic acid, a natural AHA, which is found in apples, to assist with brightening and smoothing the complexion, plus vitamin E and jojoba for a healthy, natural glow.

Small yet important changes that I think will really make a difference. They are simple, quick and won’t have you spending hours in front of the mirror every morning.
