Your guide to Summer Skincare

Summer is fast approaching and it may come as no surprise that the weather can have a huge impact on our skin. 

Our skin has to deal with hotter temperatures, humidity and increased sun exposure, which can lead to pigmentation, clogged pores and dehydration. 

At Wildcrafted we believe you should change up your skin regime with the seasons to avoid any unwanted skin issues. Below are our summer skin tips to help your skin thrive through the warmer season! 

Less is more 

Push aside the thick and heavy moisturisers. Opt for a lightweight serum like our Wild Plum C Serum. Serums are able to penetrate the skin deeper than thick moisturisers that tend to just sit on the surface and not offer the skin any hydration whatsoever. The consistency of our Wild Plum C serum is a light gel cream which can be used on its own or for extra hydration immediately after misting with the Wild Rose Botanical Mist. It contains a concentrated elixir of active Vitamin C,  Australian super fruits, Knotgrass extract and Hyaluronic acid. Specifically formulated to repair & protect the skin from infrared induced photo-ageing/ sun damage while at the same time increasing hydration and reducing the depth of fine lines.  The perfect lightweight hydration booster for summer. 

If you feel you need a little more nourishment then the Wildflowers serum being a light oil based serum can be applied over the top of the Wild Plum - it absorbs immediately feeding the skin with a multitude of vitamins.

Save your Anti Ageing Bakuchiol Cell Regenerating serum and extra nourishing Everlasting Beauty Balm for night time use when it’s particularly humid - it’s during our sleep that our skin goes into overdrive healing and replenishing our skin cells.  

Practice Sun safety 

We know that over exposure to those harsh UV rays contributes to pigmentation, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Using an SPF daily is essential in preventing unwanted skin concerns. Sunscreen should be one of the most important steps in your regime.  

Use a facial mist 

Face mists are a beautiful way to put that lost hydration back into the skin during summer. Typically used after cleansing, before your serum, a hydrating facial mist should be an essential part of your daily skincare ritual. Our Wild Rose face mist will help hydrate, restore the PH balance of your skin and brighten your complexion.  Face mists saturate the skin to ensure your products are better absorbed and delivered deep into the skin, but you can also use them over your makeup for a freshen up! You can keep our Rose Mist in the fridge for a refreshing summer spritz! 

Careful with the exfoliation 

Although you might be feeling more sweaty and oily than usual, be careful not to get “scrub happy” Over exfoliating especially with products containing glycolic or lactic acid can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun.  We would recommend using either our Wild Berry Honey Mask or Native hibiscus polish no more than 1 -2 times per week.
