5 Natural Beauty Tips to Prepare Your Skin for Summer
Summer is the season of fun. It is when we spend time outdoors and enjoy the holidays with family and friends. As restrictions begin to lift around the world, many of us are eager to spend these months sunbathing at the beach, exercising in nature, and lounging by the pool.
During lockdown, many of us gave our skin a much-needed break from daily makeup. Before going back to your old makeup routine, why not take the opportunity to consider how you can upgrade your routine for clean beauty this summer? To keep your skin in top condition, opt for organic skin care ingredients to ensure you properly nourish and replenish your facial skin cells.
With these five tips, you can make your skin glow with the sun this summer:

1. Stay hydrated
You can maintain a healthy balance of water in your body by drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day. It is crucial to stay hydrated when spending time in the heat, especially before and after exercising. Drinking enough water helps the body flush out toxins and aids nutrients in reaching your skin through proper blood flow. Try adding mint, lemon, or lime to your water for extra flavor and vitamins.
You should also hydrate your face and body topically with a moisturizer. Choose a lightweight lotion that won’t clog your pores in the summer weather.
The light yet powerful JK7® Day Face Lotion uses the precious oil of the Vanilla Planifolia Fruit and rich Moroccan Rose for soft and silky skin with visible restorative results. Enriched with soothing Hawaiian Kukui Oil, known for centuries for its healing properties, this lotion moisturizes and balances your skin.
2. Remember to exfoliate
Your skin renews itself every 28 days. As skin cells are produced at the bottom of your epidermis, they take about a month to reach the surface and naturally slough off as they are replaced by new cells. You can support this process by exfoliating regularly. Now is the time to shed dull winter skin and remove dirt and oils for a smooth, healthy complexion.
Exfoliation is also an effective way to prepare your skin before going under the sun. This will help you achieve a glowing, even tan.
Use a gentle scrub once a week for optimal results. Avoid over-exfoliating, as this can strip your skin of its natural oils and worsen dryness.
The JK7® Facial Scrub gently removes dead skin cells and impurities, helping to minimize pores, even skin tone, and promote a natural glow. Unlike other scrubs which contain abrasive exfoliants that can leave micro-cuts on the skin’s surface, this Facial Scrub uses Bamboo Powder and Vanilla Bean from French Polynesia to produce a gentle yet effective scrubbing effect.
3. Cleanse morning and evening
While it may be ideal to cleanse just once a day in the winter to prevent dry skin, the summer heat can often leave your complexion looking oily. To slough away dirt, oils, and sweat, cleanse your skin morning and evening as part of your daily skin care routine during the summer season. This will help you look and feel fresh throughout the day. Follow your face wash with a lightweight face lotion to prepare your skin before makeup.
For clear skin, opt for products that use all-natural, chemical-free ingredients.
This light, mild, and deep cleansing JK7® Foaming Face Wash with Patchouli and Ylang Ylang leaves your skin fresh, clear, and smooth, preparing it for the next step of skin care. Self-processed extracts from organic herbs, Rose flower buds, Calendula, and German Chamomile flowers balance your skin and alleviate redness after cleansing.
4. Add a mattifying face mask to your skin care routine
In the warmer months, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on your skin, leaving you looking overly oily. To avoid a greasy look, add a mattifying face mask that uses clay to your weekly summer skin care regimen. Clay face masks will absorb excess oil from your skin and prevent acne. They also detoxify your pores, naturally preventing blackheads and whiteheads.
The JK7® Detox Face Mask cleanses your skin deeply with natural Hawaiian healing clay and Zeolite Earth. Essential Oils from distilled Citrus Fruits and organic Hamamelis are purifying and astringent. Together, these ingredients draw out dead skin cells as well as toxins and impurities.
5. Cut back on makeup
Summer is the perfect time for minimal makeup. When it’s hot outside, the last thing we want to do is apply heavy makeup, as this can clog your pores, causing acne and an uneven skin tone. Having a natural skin care routine that promotes your natural radiance will empower you to feel confident without makeup.
This Beauty Moisturizing Mist is perfect for every day use to refresh your skin in the summer heat. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body, this mist helps your skin look and feel smooth, plump, and hydrated. For those using light makeup, this spray has a setting effect for a lasting finish.
