Why You want to use a Lighter Moisturizer in Summer

Wearing a winter coat in summer is similar to not adjusting your facial routine during warmer months. Throughout sunnier months your skin needs to be hydrated, soothed, and stimulated to speed up healing and repair. As well as better protect from pigmentation. Key to this is ensuring your skincare products contain the correct balance of oils, antioxidants, amino acids, and retinyl. While simultaneously remaining light enough not to weigh your skin down or cause it to sweat and clog up pores.

Therefore, the ideal approach when tweaking your skincare routine for summer, is to look at a product’s active ingredients. Active ingredients which have multiple purposes are particularly advantageous in warmer months. For example, Aloe Ferox has a high level of amino acids, which assist with pigmentation. It’s also known to stimulate faster and better skin repair, hydrate, and lock in moisture. Thus, light moisturisers that contain Aloe Ferox are both effective and efficient.


Choosing between a Lotion or a Cream

The difference between a lotion and a cream is their water and oil contents. A lotion is lighter, with more water and less oil. Whereas a cream tends to be denser because it has a higher content of oil and less water. Having both on hand and adjusting your product routine to external factors, like summer months, is a great approach to caring for your skin. Thus, opting for lotions in summer and creams in winter is worth considering when determining your skincare routine.

Lotions that contain Persia Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, have the advantage of remaining light and will help to nourish your skin. They additionally assist in preventing and treating acne. This is particularly useful for those who suffer from maskne. Maskne is acne caused by wearing a facial mask. The condition is often exacerbated by warmer temperatures. The antioxidants contained in Avocado oil also work well to soothe and assist in the repair of sunburnt skin. Combined in a lotion with Allantoin, this duo makes a fantastic formula for both healing and stimulating new tissue growth.


The Advantages of a Day-Night Facial Lotion

We tend to be out and about as well as go away more during the summer months. Some facial lotions can be used as part of both your day and night skincare routine. These provide you with the advantage of packing less, when you need to, but not compromising on the quality of your skincare routine. Both the Aloe Unique Everyday Facial Lotion and Light Body Lotions are available in 100mls, which enables them to be packed into hand luggage. Moreover, Aloe Unique’s Light Facial Lotion has been specially designed to be able to be used as a day and night moisturiser. Thereby, providing you with added versatility while still protecting and nourishing your skin.


Exploring Your Options

Skincare products should be derived from ingredients that are good for your skin, don’t contain chemicals, parabens, or traces of pesticides. Aloe Unique products are scientifically formulated from plants through Phytochemistry and contain naturally extracted Aloe Ferox from free-range sustainable farms. This means that Aloe Unique skincare ranges are designed to maximize hydration as well as stimulate repair and rejuvenation.
