Water ’essential for summer skincare’
During the summer months it’s easy to think skincare is all about suncream, but there’s actually far more to be aware of!
Thomas Mueller, an ayruvedic practitioner and member of the Ayurvedic Practioners Association (www.apa.uk.com) claims that the essential thing to remember during the warmer weather is drinking plenty of water.
He explained: "The importance of proper hydration cannot be overemphasised, as it supports the release of water-soluble toxins from kidneys.
"Plus, a hydrated skin looks and feels better, with improved elasticity."
To achieve this healthy skin, then you’ll need to drink one to two litres of water a day, helping to flush out toxins and give your body the hydration it needs to keep you cool and functioning properly.
Pure water is certainly the go-to liquid for hydration, however Mr Mueller also advises that as part of your daily routine you might want to try drinking a little coconut water as well, "as it will help cool you down and hydrate".
Coconut oil is also especially useful in the summer months, as the ayurvedic practitioner suggests that a daily dry massage followed by the application of this fragrant oil will help to seal in moisture and leave skin with a healthy glow.
Rubbing oils into troublesome areas such as elbows, knees and heels is also a great idea after spending time outdoors, especially while on holiday.
If hot flushes tend to flare up during the warmer weather then there are some handy solutions you might enjoy trying.
Rose petals have a cooling effect when in contact with the skin, so spraying a little rose water on your face and chest can really help reduce your temperature - leaving you relaxed and smelling beautiful.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
