Summer skincare with KOHA Beauty
In the summertime, there’s only two rules you need to abide by if you want great skin.
Rule one: Never forget your sunscreen.
Rule two: Always remove your sunscreen.
Yes, SPF is great for protecting our skin and is an essential in the summertime, but it’s not without its problems. We should all be using SPF every day, even in the chillier months, and in the summer, it becomes a non-negotiable. We all need it to protect our skin from the sun’s harsh rays, but typically, using sunscreen can induce other issues, such as irritation, redness and worst of all, breakouts.
The only way to avoid it? Thorough, gentle cleansing, remove every last trace, every morning and evening.
Sunscreen's heavy formulation means that it sits on top of the surface of the skin, and throughout a hot summer’s day, it starts to mix with sweat, your other skincare products, your makeup and general daily dirt and grime, gradually blocking pores and therefore creating blackheads and spots. The longer it’s left on, the higher the risk of blemishes blossoming.
Sunscreen is notoriously tricky to remove, and your usual cleansing routine just won’t be up to scratch, so this summer, make some changes to your routine to ensure clear, glowing and healthy skin. Firstly, make sure you’re using a non-comedogenic sunscreen, to protect the skin without clogging it up. Secondly, cleanse as soon as you get home for the day, instead of sitting around for hours at home with a full face of makeup and skincare – give your skin a chance to breathe.
And finally, get rid of those cotton pads and flannels – the only thing you’ll need to erase all evidence of sunscreen and debris is our Bamboo Charcoal-Infused Konjac Sponge. Used with water alone, our super-soft sponge deeply cleanses the skin and gently exfoliates at the same time, thoroughly sweeping the surface of the skin and removing all traces of grease, grime, makeup and sunscreen. Use morning and evening to ensure your skin is healthy and radiant, and pay extra attention to areas prone to oiliness, such as the chin, forehead and around the nose, to eradicate any leftover product and ensure you’ll achieve beautiful skin all summer long.
