Transitioning seasons, particularly from Spring to Summer, can significantly impact those dealing with redness and rosacea. The rise in temperature and increased sun exposure during the harsh Australian Summer can exacerbate these conditions. Increased humidity, higher temperatures and more UV exposure affects the skin and worsens redness symptoms in sensitive skin. However, with the right skincare routine, it's possible to manage and minimise redness flare-ups effectively.
TIPS FOR MANAGING REDNESS IN HOT WEATHER:
1. Gentle Cleansing
We recommend using gentle cleansers suitable for sensitive skin that will not strip the skin's natural oils. Our Anti Redness Cream Cleanser is effective in hydrating, nourishing and calming redness in an incredibly gentle approach. Traditional cleansers (such as foaming cleansers) can be quite harsh and abrasive for those with sensitive skin, which normally leads to irritation. The Milk Thistle is our hero active ingredient in our Anti Redness Cream Cleanser, immediately going to work addressing redness whilst balancing your skin without stripping it of good oils.
As we lead into the warm Australian Summer, it’s important to keep in mind how the hot weather naturally impacts our skin. Warmer temperatures will strip your skin of moisture, causing your skin to become dehydrated - when the protective upper layer of your skin lacks moisture. During Summer, particularly in climates such as Australia, it is important to be mindful soapily more hydrating and moisture to your skincare regime to combat this harsh weather. Heat can become your skin’s worst enemy - it can dry out the skin and cause breakouts. Furthermore, if your skin is dehydrated, your skin will become dry, flaky, and full and will make our fine lines become more noticeable. Our Sleep With Me Hydrating Gel Mask is our absolute saviour for this Summer. Consider this a big drink of water for your skin. Incredibly hydrating and cooling, this gel-based mask contains vegan hyaluronic acid and a plant-based peptide to provide even the most dehydrated skin with moisture.
