How To Keep Your Skin Happy Through The Summer

Friday, 18 August 2017

As it is well into the summer season and we’re all making the most of the sun, getting a tan and some Vitamin D; we still have to protect our skin from excessive sun damage. Here are some tips to help you prepare and protect your skin from the sun.

Water: 
This tip might seem like a no brainer, but it is super essential to know. Drinking plenty of water is really important throughout summer, not just for internal health but for the health and appearance of the skin. Try to drink at least 8 glasses of H2O throughout the day. Although if you feel like you’re forgetful or don’t get thirsty that often, set hourly reminders to make sure you stay hydrated.

Protection:
This tip, too, is a no brainer. Please keep your skin protected from the sun by using sun blocks or sunscreen - to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. When you don’t use a form of sun protection, an immediate reaction you get is sun burn. However, sun damage can occur over a lifetime and can lead to skin cancer. So it’s important to use sun protection of SPF 30 or higher.

After Sun:
Along with sun protection, it’s important to look after the skin after you’ve been out in the sun. If you would like a lovely tan, you need to keep your skin moisturised and hydrated as your tan will last longer. We also recommend using our Nzuri Chamrhi cleanser and Merakhi Face Oil on a night to help repair the skin after a long day in the sun. Nzuri Chamrhi can help to remove any extra grease and oil from the skin, giving it a deep clean! Merakhi will help to balance the skin - especially if your skin is naturally a bit more on the oily side, add moisture and keep you looking glowing.

Exfoliation:
To keep your face and body looking smooth, radiant and in tip top condition - exfoliation is a must. Try to exfoliate once a week, or twice if your skin can handle it. Exfoliation helps to get rid of dead skin cells, remove trapped dirt and prevent breakouts. Opt for an organic exfoliator, as the natural ingredients in it will work their magic to make your skin look amazing!

We at Bonita Biaan are all about Ayurveda, and keeping our products as natural as they can be. We have made sure to formulate our products using the highest quality and purest of oils, using only cold pressed and organic oils. All of our oils have been sourced from vegan and cruelty free backgrounds. 

As our oils are 100% natural and pure, they have quite an earthy scent - as opposed to a sweet fragrance like other oils on the market. The reason for this is that we have kept our oils as pure as they can be, without any sort of bleaching or refining - which makes for an earthy scent! 
Also, we do not have any nut oils in our products either, making them suitable for those with nut allergies.
