Why using moisturiser is crucial this summer

17 November 2015, 12:27African Extracts

Just like we need water to survive, our skin needs moisture in order to protect itself. Fortunately, blood vessels are constantly delivering moisture to the surface. So why do we get dry skin?

There’s a perception that in the warmer months there isn’t a problem with our skin's moisture levels. But because of perspiration and greater exposure to the sun (and air-conditioning), it’s just as important to moisturise in summer as it is in winter. It all comes down to losing the vital moisture that our body can’t easily replenish.

Thankfully, we have moisturisers.

Moisturisers vary in how they work and exactly what they do, but simply put, they soak into your skin to return lost moisture. And that’s why it’s important to be picky about which products to use. Trends in medical research clearly point in a particular direction: 1.) Too many chemicals are bad for you and 2.) nature often has all of the answers.

The Natural AdvantAGE

African Extracts Rooibos makes a wide variety of skin care products, all cruelty-free and bursting with natural ingredients and their signature additive, Rooibos. The AdvantAGE range in particular makes use of Bio-Active Rooibos to pack its products with powerful antioxidants - naturally occurring chemicals that protect your skin from ageing, UV rays, pollution and general degradation.

The AdvantAGE range features two moisturisers, an Intensive Day Cream with SPF15 and a Firming Night Cream. More than just moisturisers, both are liberally packed with natural ingredients that nourish, rejuvenate and firm your skin. The Intensive Day Cream’s horse chestnut lady’s thistle and germinated wheat help reduce puffiness and tighten your skin while the SPF 15 rating protects from harmful UV rays.

Packed with even more nutrients and vitamins, including ginseng, apple, barley, and vitamins A, C and E, the Firming Night Cream is quickly absorbed and focuses on providing your skin with moisture while minimising the visible signs of ageing in the most natural way possible.

Try to moisturise day and night with a product that has more natural ingredients and you’ll feel the difference.

But in the end, your routine needs to fit you because it’s all about being comfortable in your own skin!
