Should you use skincare oils in summer?

Should you use skincare oils in summer?

The short answer is YES.

Although putting oil on your skin in summer might seem like a bad idea, modern skincare oils are very different to the dangerous tanning oils we might have used in the past.

They are packed with skin-loving ingredients and are easily absorbed, helping your skin deal with the effects of increased UV exposure and air pollution during the warmer months.

They keep skin hydrated

Hydrated skin is healthy skin and skincare oils are excellent hydrators. Good hydration signals to the skin that it does not need to produce excessive amounts of its own oil (or sebum), which can cause congestion and breakouts.

They deliver antioxidants

Our skincare oils contain potent antioxidants including the essential vitamins A, C and E. These counter the effects of free radical damage that comes with exposure to things like UV light and air pollution, which increases during the summer. Some ingredients can become less effective in sunlight, so we recommend our Facial Serum is only used at night. Our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil can be safely used in the morning however, underneath your usual sun protection.

They are easily absorbed

Modern skincare oils have a “dry” texture, so a couple of drops smoothed across the face and décolletage will absorb very quickly. This means they are excellent at delivering nourishing ingredients to the deeper layers of the skin and do not sit on the surface causing shininess or congestion.
