Whether you choose to heed the reality or not, the fact of the matter is that summer ushers in a lot of aggressive environmental stressors that can wreak havoc on your skin, and hair, and make a lasting impact on your personal health.
Warmer summer weather opens the pores, which not only increases sebum production but also allows dirt and pollution to get in. Also, if you have air-conditioning inside, the skin will then cool down, the pores will close, trapping the dirt inside.
Swimming in the ocean or chlorinated water and cooler showers will also sap the natural moisture from your skin. You’ll certainly need extra nourishing after summer activities.
So with all this going on – increased sebum but feeling dehydrated – what is the answer?
Cleanse: Rose Hip Seed Facial Cleanser will get deep into the pores, balance and tone all at the same time. Great for all skin types, this cleanser will leave your skin hydrated and supple.

Tone: This not only helps to close the pores after cleansing but is also great for a cooling spritz any time of the day and a quick freshen up.
