Summer Skincare: It’s All About Green
The sun is shining, the air’s humid and we’re all feeling a little… warm. I adore the summer months, especially when the weather’s as beautiful as it is right now, but looking after my skin through tropical temperatures proves more of a challenge.
Every skin type has its own problems but we all have to contend with the effects of hot, sweating skin. I have combination skin, which means my face feels tight and dry in areas if I don’t moisturise, and it gets oily in the t-zone: forehead, nose and chin. Summertime cleansing and moisturising is tricky and so I find myself reaching for products that will effectively clean my skin with the benefits of leaving me feeling refreshed and clean.
Some of my favourite products that I’m currently using coincidentally have one commonality: they’re all green! The colour green is synonymous with freshness; the great outdoors and soothing botanicals. I love green because of it’s clean connotations so it’s a perfect shade to perch upon your bathroom shelves.
