Acne Breakouts – With the warmer weather we sweat more, combine this with bacteria and blocked pores and yes, you guessed – it can mean more spots and breakouts. To help prevent spots, clean and cleanse your skin every morning and night. Don’t wait until bedtime, cleanse as soon as you’re home from your day. Use products like our Best Cleanse Forever that include ingredients such as Witch Hazel, Oregon Grape and Nettle. Powerful on spots but kind to your skin, they will remove unwanted dead skin cells, bacteria, sweat and dirt leaving your skin feeling clearer and bright.
Going between the heat of the sun and air conditioning or fans to stay cool, being in the sea or pool can cause your skin to dry out. Take a warm/cool shower and use gentle cleansers on your skin. Moisturise every morning and night and apply to slightly damp skin so that you absorb extra moisture. ‘Soothe Operator’ contains Babassu, Macadamia and Hazelnut that are collagen boosting and nourish the skin.
Heat Rash – Sweat glands get blocked and cause a red, hot, bumpy, prickly, itchy skin and it can drive you mad. Have cool showers and pat your skin dry, where loose fitting clothing.

Sunburn can range from mild to blistering. Moisturise the skin whilst it’s damp and stay away from oil based products as they may trap the heat and make it feel worse.

Insect bites, stings, rashes and hives
Going for walks in the sunshine and staying outside into the evening is what we love about the summer months. And with this comes the mosquito bites, nettle stinges, rashes from grasses or sand. A cold compress, witch hazel, aloe vera will help to calm and don’t cover the area (if possible!). Always carry ‘Hits The Spot’ for emergencies as it takes away the sting, itch, redness and helps to calm the skin. Apply as many times as needed.
