We’ve now reached that confusing seasonal phase of the year where heat and humidity can play a major role in your clients’ skincare routine. Regardless of what their skin needs or what you might prescribe them, there’s a big chance they may abandon certain products if they feel too heavy or sticky, and concentrated creams, balms and oils can become unbearable to apply.
For those seeking fast-absorbing, lightweight hydration that won’t feel sticky in response to humidity but also doesn’t sacrifice concentration, here are some of our tried and tested favourites:
The only 100% active organic plant serum in the world, created by renowned skincare chemist Ross Macdougald. There are three products in the range, for face, eye and body, and each formulated completely from a single plant extract. This means they are super concentrated, pure, vegan, and packed with vitamins and antioxidants, but with an incredibly light, absorbent, water-like liquid texture.
Organic Nation More Than Rose Hydration Mist
Mists are of course ideal refreshers for summer skin, but this isn’t just any old mist – as the name suggests. This mist is ultra hydrating, full of aloe vera, sodium hyaluronate and damask rose. Riberry and Mutari Berry also give a boost of antioxidants.
Alpha H Liquid Laser HA
Known for retaining up to 1000 times its own molecular weight in water, this smooth HA gel provides cooling, concentrating hydration. Ideal not only for use after needling treatments, micro, chemical peeling or laser, it’s also perfect for immediate soothing and cooling on a hot summer’s day or on burnt or sensitised skin.
Herbs+Heart Cell Gel
Using a water based gel-cream formula, Herbs+Heart Cell Gel provides a wonderful cooling effect on dry and/or sun-exposed skin. Combines refreshing cucumber, soothing neroli, and revitalising rosehip for a boost of moisture while drawing lost hydration back into skin. Rich in vitamins B5, C and K to reduce inflammation and limit melanin production causing pigmentation.
Gernetic Cells Life
A light gel-serum, Cells Life instantly boosts moisture and revitalises skin with a concentrated cocktail of essential proteins, peptides, proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid. It will quickly relieve feelings of tightness and dryness after too much time in the sun, or perhaps over-pumped office air conditioning!
