Summer Skincare: The Natural Way to Glowing Skin

Summer Skincare: The Natural Way to Glowing Skin

Summer is the season of sun, sand, and outdoor fun. But amidst all the barbecues and beach trips, it's crucial not to forget about your skincare routine. In fact, your skin needs extra care and protection during the hot weather. Here are our top five tips to care for your skin naturally this summer, along with three powerhouse ingredients you can find in our Shia Skin Care products.

1. Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is a must. Water not only keeps you hydrated but also helps maintain your skin’s natural balance. Our bodies are mostly water, so it’s vital to keep replenishing.

2. Apply Sunscreen

The sun’s UV rays can damage your skin and lead to premature aging. Always apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, even on cloudy days. Some natural ingredients have properties that can provide some level of sun protection, but it's important to note that these should not be relied upon as your sole method of sun protection. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Broad-spectrum sunscreen is a type of sunscreen that protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

UVA rays, or aging rays, can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkling and age spots, and they can pass through window glass. UVB rays, or burning rays, are the primary cause of sunburn and are blocked by window glass.

Not all sunscreens offer broad-spectrum protection. The term is regulated by the FDA and can only be used on labels if the product passes specific tests. These tests check that the sunscreen product protects against both types of harmful rays.

So, when you see "broad spectrum" on a sunscreen label, it means that the product can protect your skin from the full range of UVA and UVB rays, which is a significant advantage for skin health and prevention of skin cancer.

3. Use a Good Moisturizer

Despite the heat, your skin can still dry out in the summer. A good moisturizer, like our Rosehip Face Balm, keeps your skin hydrated and protected. Rosehip oil, a key ingredient, is packed with vitamins A and C, which help to boost collagen production and moisturize the skin.

4. Exfoliate

Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, which can clog pores and cause breakouts. But remember to exfoliate gently; overdoing it can irritate the skin.

5. Nourish with Antioxidants

Products rich in antioxidants help protect your skin from environmental damage. Our Hibiscus Infused Facial Wipes are infused with Whole Hibiscus Flowers. Hibiscus often called the "Botox plant" for its skin firming and lifting properties. The antioxidants in hibiscus fight skin-damaging free radicals that speed up the aging process.

Summer also means a lot of sweat, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Our products contain ingredients like French green clay, renowned for its oil-absorbing properties, leaving your skin fresh and clean.


Remember, every season requires a skincare adjustment. The hot summer months are no different. With these natural skincare tips, you'll be on your way to maintaining that healthy summer glow. Visit our store today to explore our products made with these skin-loving ingredients.
