Skin care: 5 tips to achieve the perfect summer skin

Healthy skin is as much as what you eat as what you put on it. Our skin is our largest organ, so keeping it nourished and highly hydrated brings a multitude of benefits. With summer in the air, our agenda is full of party ideas, and our need for glowing skin and a special skin care routine is more pressing.

Here are some home remedies for glowing skin and the best companion skin care products to help you navigate your party city.

1.EXFOLIATE

Great skin begins with good prep. Imagine your skin is a canvas and laying the right foundations is key. Exfoliating should not be just for special occasions; it should be built into your weekly skin care routine. A good scrub will not only take care of dead skin cells to reveal smoother and younger looking healthy skin, it will also allow your moisture products to work even better for maximum hydration. Using a body exfoliator not only helps with getting rid of dead skin cells, but is also the best foundation for oily skin.

Exfoliate your damp skin once a week with our Verdure Hydrating Body Scrub. A little goes a long way. Apply in light circular motions, paying attention to dry skin areas such as heels, elbows and knees. Smaller circular motions and a little more pressure will smooth, nourish and get ready to party.

  1. ADD A SPRITZ OF LIFE TO THE PARTY

We’ve all been there – you’re caught in the middle of an exciting party and you lay your eyes on everyone else who is full of life, but the spark in you just isn’t there. You don’t feel like your usual confident self, but you’re not sure why. Sometimes you just need a spritz of something special. Something invigorating. Something fundamentally Malée. Give yourself that well-deserved pick-me-up and awaken your senses with our bright, energising Eau de Perfume to help you become the life of the party.

Bursting full of bright citrus with hints of crisp mint and comforting patchouli, one deep breath of the fresh, full-bodied Verdure scent immediately helps you find the deep-rooted energy that you never knew existed within you.

  1. HYDRATION

Depending on where you live, summertime can mean humidity or dry heat. Either way, sweating is definitely something that we all contend with. Parched skin and dehydrated skin not only looks dull but will also prevent your night outfit for looking sexy. Locking in moisture and hydration is the key to plump, smooth skin that is youthful looking and soft to touch. Build this into your daily routine. Our Verdure Hydrating Body Cream will do just that.

For added moisture, apply liberally on damp skin after you step out of the shower or bath daily. A rich but non-greasy formula which will penetrate the skin and sink into deeper layers to hydrate from within. A little goes a long way.

  1. DON’T FORGET ABOUT YOUR HAIR

After party, the early hours of the morning are nothing for the Malée lioness – she emanates confidence and has a voluminous hair that makes her ready to take on the world. Our multipurpose moisturiser packs a punch in hydration without feeling heavy or greasy. Our Verdure Moisturising Oil is a miracle worker as a pre-shampoo moisture treatment and moisturiser; massage onto the ends of your locks, leave on for at least 20 minutes, shampoo and rinse off. A day before that special party, apply the oil to damp hair for the slicked back model look. This is for you too, gentlemen. A little goes a long way.

Our oil is a very versatile product because it actually helps the skin and nails as well. Add a few drops of oil to your bath or alternatively apply on your skin directly. 

  1. PROLONG YOUR TAN

You have heard this before: you should drink a lot of water. Not only to calm hangovers, but also to hydrate your skin from the inside as well. After all, we are 70% water. Mix our moisturisers with your UV filters for protection before heading to the beach so your skin looks tanned on your white night dress.

Well-moisturised skin is key to a beautiful and glowing skin. Our top tip: stick your moisturisers in the fridge while in the sun. Apply the cool moisturiser before dressing up for the party. Your skin will thank you for the cool drink. It will get the boosted mood of the Malée lioness who embraces the Verdure scent that doesn’t shy away from the party chaos.
