Summer is officially underway and with that comes more time spent outdoors, regular beach escapades and lounging around the pool soaking up the sun’s rays. As much as we enjoy summer, the humidity and heat can wreak havoc on our skin, often resulting in dry or dehydrated skin.
To keep your skin looking healthy during the summer months, it’s time to hydrate, exfoliate and moisturise.
An easy way to keep your skin protected during the summer is to exfoliate, preferably on a weekly basis. Dead cells sit on the surface of your skin and make it look dry, dull and rough. Exfoliating removes these dead cells, allowing the more radiant, healthy skin underneath to shine through.
During hot summer months our skin loses moisture. Investing in a good body lotion or moisturiser will help replenish moisture and keep the skin soft and smooth. Moisturisers don’t just add water back into your skin, they also trap in the water you already have to plump it up and protect it.
Using only the purest ingredients sourced from the raw African earth, Bodycare from Africa offers an extensive range of both exfoliating products (gels, body scrubs and salt scrubs) and moisturising products (body lotions, hand and nail creams and foaming hand washes) in various variants that will leave your skin feeling cleansed, moisturised, soft, silky smooth and radiant.
