Skincare is a dynamic process. It is seasonal too. What your skin needs in winter may not be the best routine to follow through summer. This means you have to be constantly up to date on seasonal ingredients, what they do for your skin, as well as if they match your skin’s needs.
What does your skin need this summer? Well, as you plan your skincare routine for the next 2-3 months, let us help you figure it out.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C is known as one of the most important immuno-boosters in our system. In fact, doctors recommend it in the form of OJ all the time for colds, coughs, and mild sickness. For the skin, topical Vitamin C is an elixir. It has some very powerful properties that not only help the skin maintain its health in top form but also contribute to a flawless appearance and glow. Here are the skin-loving properties of Vitamin C that make it a top choice for summer:
- Sun protection and prevention of sun damage.
- Skin brightening ability.
- Lightening of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
- Smoothening of wrinkles, fine lines, and blemish/acne scars.
A coveted product to reap all the above benefits is the Savarnas Natural Vitamin C Serum with 20% Vitamin C + Vitamins B, E, and Ferulic Acid. Very convenient for summer skin.
This is a form of Vitamin B3 and is popularly known for skin whitening. Niacinamide has other properties too, that make it very apt for summer use. Here’s the list:
- It has the potential to strengthen your skin barrier against external stressors.
- It has skin-calming properties and antioxidant capabilities.
- Niacinamide also protects the skin from the loss of moisture and dehydration.
- Salicylic Acid
Salicylic acid is a brilliant ingredient for skin problems like excessively oily skin, acne, blemishes and clogged pores. It is known for deep cleansing, reducing oil production, and sloughing away dead skin debris. In summer, you tend to suffer from blemishes and acne breakouts more than usual. The heat, humidity, sweat, and outdoorsy lifestyle contribute to this. Therefore your skin needs a good dose of salicylic acid. If you have excessively dry skin, then you may refrain. But for all other skin types, especially those who are fighting acne, this one is a must with a capital M.
To get natural and effective spot treatment for your blemish and acne marks, apply Savarnas Natural Blemish Treatment. It is crafted with witch hazel, glycolic acid, menthol, and of course — salicylic acid to give you smooth and clear skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating agent that nourishes the skin’s deepest layers, locks in moisture, and results in a smoother, radiant appearance. This is an all-season ingredient that your skin needs in its moisturizer, but you must especially use it in summer. The oily, sweaty texture of your face may lead you to believe that your skin is hydrated when it is really not. A regular dose of hyaluronic acid helps.
You can check out our line of Hyaluronic Acid products that are completely natural, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and phthalate-free.
Retinol is a strong Vitamin A derivative that does a variety of things for your skin. In addition to exfoliating, it increases cell production, unclogs pores, increases collagen production, and also smooths the skin of blemishes, scars, acne, and wrinkles. Your skin may need retinol this summer if you have mature skin with fine lines/wrinkles or suffer seasonal breakouts.
- Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is popularly known as the plant of eternal youth in India. And why not? This succulent has some very vibrant properties that give you smooth, glowing, and healthy skin. Why is aloe vera a summer must-have for your skin?
- Because it helps soothe any sunburns, and cools the skin.
- Because it has anti-inflammatory properties.
- Because it boosts wound healing.
- Because it lightens blemishes and reduces infection.
- Because it fights aging.
