It’s possible to experience dry skin issues during the height of summer. In most places, summertime manifests as longer days, increased humidity, and rising temperatures. But if you live in the desert or heading somewhere exotic like Egypt, the hot dry summer climate can cause rough, parched, and peeling skin. Quite different from a humid climate like say, Hong Kong, where one may encounter oilier, more active skin issues.
While it makes sense switching to lighter products to keep active skin under control during the summer months, be mindful about keeping your skin adequately hydrated and protected. If you experience dryness in summer, be sure to use the right products to cool and moisturize your skin. It's also wise to drink enough liquids, get plenty of rest, and use a right SPF.
Did you know that you can always mix two of our seasonal oils to multiply their benefits? For example, if you are traveling from Florida to San Francisco during summertime, you can either switch from Lucent to Enlighten or double oil by mixing a little bit of both together! We often find this helps with balancing and stabilizing your skin to a new environment. Each seasonal oil was created to complement their neighboring season (Lucent blends well with Enlighten or Grace, Grace blends well with Lucent or Quiescent, etc.) Personalized your beauty ritual with so many possibilities! Note: We do not recommend mixing more than two beauty oils together, otherwise the scent can get a little muddled.
Perhaps you have combination skin that is oilier and congestion-prone with a few troubling dry spots. Keep your complexion clear and fresh with our Lucent Beauty Oil and spot treat with our perennial favorite, the Divine Beauty Balm . Our favorite all purpose balm is light, smooth, and nourishing; never greasy or heavy. This Death Valley-proof balm, is wonderful to layer over any of our seasonal oils to seal in extra moisture by forming an occlusive healing layer.
