A long, hot summer affects more than just your energy levels - it also takes a heavy toll on your skin. Intense heat and strong UV rays can dehydrate and damage the delicate dermal tissue, leaving it feeling dry, dull and sensitive.
Luckily there are some simple techniques you can employ to restore a beautiful complexion and promote a healthy glow. Here are three tried-and-tested tips to naturally detox and re-energise your skin:
1. Exfoliate regularly. Dead skin cell build-up can leave your complexion looking dull and lifeless, and can also contribute to excess oil production. Remedy this by exfoliating twice a week with a microplastic-free organic exfoliant, like zk’in’s Clarifying Exfoliator.
2. Hydrate from within. To achieve a beautiful glow on the outside, you have to nourish your skin from the inside. Drink lots of hydrating liquids like filtered water, herbal tea and coconut water, and eat a balanced diet containing healthy fatty acids, which can be found in foods like avocado, salmon and chia seeds.
3. Apply a restorative masque. Treat your skin to a weekly face masque to restore moisture levels and promote a brighter, healthier complexion. Look for a masque that contains nourishing natural ingredients like vitamin E, aloe vera and kaolin clay, such as zk’in’s Brightening & Hydrating Masque.
Here’s to a beautiful autumn – and beautiful skin!
