Contrary to popular belief, humidity can be a great thing for the skin. Using the right products and adjusting your routine according to the weather, ensure your skin stays in balance. Naturally, as the humidity rises, our bodies produce more oil, which provides your skin with an increased barrier protection, allowing you to use lighter products to hydrate and protect the skin. Below are the best ways to bring your skin back into balance during the hot, sticky summer!
Gentle dry brushing is a great way to wake up your lymphatic system. Dry Brushing increases blood circulation and promotes lymphatic flow and drainage. The action of dry brushing helps to prevent congestion by supporting your skin’s natural detoxification process.
Hydration is vital to help balance the skin in the humid months. Province Apothecary’s Invigorating + Balancing Toner contains Rose Flower Water to help cool and protect the skin, while Geranium works to balance sebum protection. For added cooling benefits, let it chill in the fridge for a few minutes before spritzing the skin.
Switch up Your Oil-Based Serum
Oil is one of the best ways to balance the skin, even in hot, humid weather. Province Apothecary’s Clear Skin Advanced Face Serum is the perfect blend to hydrate the skin without being too heavy. The molecular structure of Camellia Seed Oil allows for better penetration into the deeper layers of the dermis. At the same time, Sea Buckthorn Oil helps decrease inflammation in the skin and supports our skin’s natural cell renewal process. Add a few drops of water to the oil before applying it to the skin to ensure deeper penetration.
