It has been HOT and very humid in certain parts of the world already for the past month or two. And summer hasn't even officially started yet! With summer comes new skin care needs and the need to nourish your skin in different ways, and Sweeter Juice Beauty has been working overtime to give you guys some new products to match the weather we’re having. Some may find that creams are a bit weighing on the skin during these hot days. We wanted to give you guys some good reasons as to why it's important to change up your moisturizer during the summer.
1. You don't need a heavy moisturizer in the summer.
Using heavy creams and moisturizers during the summer can weigh down our skin and contribute to breakouts and clogged pores due to sweat mixing with the oils and emollients of your skin care products. Did you know your skin changes during the seasons? Hydration levels, your location, and the amount of time you’re exposed to the sun can contribute to different occurrences in your appearance as well.
This is why we want to stress the importance of lighting up your routine if possible, and a light moisturizer is one of the ways you can accommodate that. Instead of creams, using moisturizers with a light lotion or gel consistency can give your skin the moisture it needs while not being too heavy.
2. Your skin won't dry out as easily.
In certain places, extra humidity being in the air can be beneficial. The air is moist because of this humidity. Even though the environment has become humid, moisturizing and hydrating your skin is still very important. The same goes for those of you that live in areas where the air is very dry. Dry areas have less humidity in the air and that’s why it's vital to drink water and to make sure to keep your skin moist when applying your products. Less humidity means less moisture in the air. In the winter, dry air can exacerbate skin and the same issue can happen in desert-like lands. No matter the area, hydration is very vital, especially with all the water loss that comes from sweating and exerting ourselves. The loss of hydration can also cause our oil glands to go into overdrive as an attempt to lubricate our skin. These changes can cause a dull and dry appearance!
We have to put in a bit of extra effort to lessen these effects as this can throw our skin off balance. It's very important for our hydration AND oil levels to be balanced no matter where we are. Lack of water can lead to a crepey, dehydrated complexion and no one wants that! Our skin needs help attracting moisture to itself and one way to do that is by using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid LOVES attracting moisture and that’s why we included it in our brand new R E V I V A L Ultra Gel Facial Moisturizers! We came out with four options, each with its own powerhouse key ingredient to help promote beautiful hydrated skin! These lovely Ultra Gel Moisturizers will help to moisturize while plumping, and ensure that your skin stays hydrated with the power of Elderberry, Juniper Berry, Chrysanthemum, and Passion Flower!
These powerful ingredients combined with plumping hyaluronic acid will promote youthful radiant skin, and reduce signs of aging. The hyaluronic acid that we use is botanical, which means that it’s formulated from natural sources. It’s vegan and is carefully selected from the purest ones. Hyaluronic acid loves water and can hold 1,000 times its weight in it. It's like a little sponge. Earlier, we mentioned that it’s important to keep your skin moist when applying products. Since certain areas lack moisture in the air, making sure your face is freshly clean and slightly damp before applying your moisturizer can help immensely and give the hyaluronic acid something to latch on to.
3. You have a higher chance of breaking out as well as having clogged pores.
Having a lightweight routine can make it easier for your skin to breathe. As said before, using heavy creams on your skin while you're sweating and attracting dirt is a recipe for disaster. Our new Ultra-Gel Moisturizers will help to keep your skin balanced and will not clog pores. There is less of a chance that your skin will be suffocated with lightweight products, however it will still be able to get the nourishment it needs.
4. For makeup wearers, using a lighter moisturizer would prevent skin from being too overwhelmed.
Some forms of foundation can weigh down the skin, especially combined with heavy moisturizers. The less layers you have on top of your skin, the better. The R E V I V A L Ultra Gel Facial Moisturizers were formulated with this in mind as well. They’re formulated for all skin types so no matter which one you choose, you’ll get a large dose of hydrating goodness! They’re very lightweight, and promote an even, brightened skin appearance. They can also be used as the last step of your skincare routine and work wonderfully well under makeup!
5. It's beneficial for all skin types and places.
No matter if you're acne prone, sensitive, or dry, everyone needs a moisturizer year round. Most skin types fare very well using gel based products and lightweight lotions. People with combination skin can benefit from these types of products too. Most people with combination skin have oily and dry patches on their face, most commonly in the T-zone versus the cheeks. The R E V I V A L Ultra Gels are able to provide adequate hydration to both areas while keeping things balanced. These Ultra Gels are very adaptable and can be used in any weather at any time of year.
We’ve been enjoying seeing the glowing, radiant skin on you guys that comes from using our products. No matter the season, plump and hydrated skin will always be in.
These wonderful R E V I V A L Ultra Gel Facial Moisturizers are just in time for the start of summer so be sure to snag yours ASAP! Your skin will definitely thank you for making the swap! It's time for a Skin R E V I V A L!
