Heal & Hydrate with Herbal Essentials
**Keep your skin healthy this summer, the natural way **
With sizzling temperatures on our doorstep this summer, preparation is key to ensuring our skin doesn’t suffer. Going from air conditioned homes and offices to exhausting heat certainly doesn’t help matters either! Throw in perspiration to the mix and you need a skincare SOS – fast!
Ultimately staying hydrated is the priority. We should be aiming to drink at least 2.5 litres of water per day, even if we don’t feel thirsty. Fruit and vegetables also have a high water content and so contribute to your daily intake too. Avoiding exposure to the sun between 12 noon and 4:00pm is also beneficial as this when the sun is most damaging to the skin. It goes without saying that SPF is a daily must-have and should be a part of your every day beauty regime, along with a targeted range of hydrating skincare.
Herbal Essentials brings you their top 3 ‘Herbal Heroes’ to make this summer a little kinder to your skin:
