Natural Summer Skincare Tips

Choose Natural Skincare Products
During the hot summer months, it is important to take extra care of your
skin to keep it healthy and glowing. One of the best ways to do this is bychoosing natural skincare products that are free of harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances. These products are softer on the skin and less likely to cause irritation, making them a great choice for summer skincare.

The Skincare Sample Kit - the perfect way to try out each product in our Soapery 21 skincare range, with miniature sized bottles/tins of each product included. This gift box also comes with a bamboo facecloth and short leaflets on how to use each product effectively for the best results.

Inside each kit you’ll find:

Our Nourishing Day Oil - formulated to deeply nourish and rejuvenate the skin, keeping it hydrated throughout the day with the added benefits of uplifting Geranium and Frankincense for skin toning effects.

Our Gentle Cleansing Balm - designed to be gentle yet effective at cleansing skin and removing makeup, suitable for all skin types. Its unique blend of oils nourishes dry and dehydrated skin while clearing congestion and calming irritated skin.

Our Replenishing Night Oil - works overnight to nourish, replenish, and revitalise the skin, with the calming properties of Lavender and Cedarwood, plus the skin-toning effects of Neroli and Frankincense for a rejuvenated complexion.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is essential for maintaining the health and appearance of our skin. Besides staying hydrated from within, it is also important to use moisturisers with hydrating ingredients like aloe vera and shea butter. These ingredients help lock in moisture and keep your skin looking and feeling soft and supple.

Apply Sunscreen Regularly

One of the most important skincare tips for summer is to remember to apply sunscreen regularly. The sun's harmful UV rays can cause damage to the skin, including sunburn, premature ageing, and an increased risk of skin cancer. To protect your skin, make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 before heading out into the sun, and reapply throughout the day, especially after swimming or sweating.

Moisturise Regularly

Moisturising is also key to maintaining healthy summer skin. Regularly moisturising helps to hydrate the skin, improve skin texture, and promote a radiant complexion. Whether you choose a hydrating cream or a nourishing oil, adding moisturisation to your skincare routine can help keep your skin looking fresh and glowing all summer long.

Relax Body Butter - a fast absorbing whipped body butter made with a rich and nourishing blend of oils and butters to intensely moisturise and soften your skin, without leaving it feeling greasy.

Blended with our balancing, calming and restful Relax blend which includes Lavender, Bergamot & Lemongrass essential oils.

Summer Aromatherapy Tips

With these simple summer aromatherapy tips, you can support your body and mind, infusing your days with a feeling of calm and relaxation.

Incorporate Essential Oils Into Your Daily Routine

Summer is the perfect time to embrace the power of aromatherapy and elevate your daily routine to a whole new level of relaxation and rejuvenation. By incorporating essential oils into your everyday practices, you can create a serene and uplifting atmosphere that will help you unwind and de-stress after a long day.

Create A Relaxing Atmosphere With A Diffuser

One of the simplest ways to harness the benefits of essential oils is by using a diffuser to fill your space with soothing scents. Consider using lavender or chamomile essential oils to promote relaxation and reduce stress, helping you create a calm and tranquil environment in your home. Simply add a few drops of your chosen oil to your diffuser and let the aroma work its magic.

SPA DAY Essential Oil Blend - a detoxifying, cleansing, stress reducing blend.

The essential oils in this blend have calming and uplifting qualities to help boost feelings of wellbeing. They also have antibacterial and antiseptic qualities so a great blend for cleansing and refreshing your space.

Try a DIY Aromatherapy Spritz

For a quick pick-me-up during the summer months, try making your own aromatherapy spritz using refreshing citrus oils like lemon or grapefruit. Simply mix a few drops of your chosen oil with water and witch hazel in a spray bottle, and mist your space whenever you need a burst of energy and invigoration. The zesty scent of citrus oils is sure to awaken your senses and help you feel rejuvenated throughout the day.

Use A Natural Body Oil Infused With Soothing Essential Oils

To indulge in a spa-like experience at home, treat yourself to a natural body oil infused with soothing essential oils like lavender or frankincense. Not only will these oils help hydrate and nourish your skin during the warm weather, but they will also create a deeply relaxing experience that will leave you feeling pampered and refreshed. Take the time to massage the oil into your skin after a shower or bath, allowing the calming scents to soothe your senses,
