With the arrival of summer, more and more people are paying attention to their skin, especially female friends. Due to excessive sweating and strong oil secretion in summer, combined with strong ultraviolet rays from the sun, it is easy for the skin to sunburn, accelerate skin aging and pigment deposition, and in severe cases, even develop spots. Therefore, summer skincare is particularly important. This article starts from three aspects: sun protection, cleaning, and moisturizing, and introduces how we should take care of our skin in summer?
Sunscreen is one of the essential steps in summer. Generally speaking, it is widely believed that sunscreen is to prevent sunburn. In fact, preventing sunburn is only a superficial phenomenon, and it is to help us prevent skin aging, pigmentation, skin diseases, etc. Therefore, using sunscreen skincare products in summer is essential. When choosing sunscreen products, it is best to choose sunscreen with an SPF value greater than 30. During use, attention should be paid to the completeness and uniformity of the application to achieve better results.
In summer, everyone knows that sweat and oil are secreted vigorously, and the body is prone to sweating and acne. Therefore, the cleaning steps in summer are also crucial, especially after applying sunscreen products, it is important to clean and repair before going to bed.
The correct method is: 1. Before cleaning the face, you need to wash your hands to remove bacteria. 2. When cleaning, you need to wash your face with warm water, as the temperature of the water can affect the skin’s water and oil balance. 3. If you are applying makeup. Make up removal must not be omitted, and after cleaning, use toner facial mask to repair. 4. According to different skin types, choose your own cleaning products. Mild facial cleanser is more suitable for summer.
The high temperature in summer will lead to water evaporation, and the skin is more prone to water shortage. Proper hydration can help the skin maintain water oil balance. It is recommended to use spray moisturizing or moisturizing facial mask. To choose a moisturizer that is suitable for oneself, it is necessary to identify the skin type and issues, as well as the skin needs after cleansing, in order to be more effective in moisturizing.
However, how to choose cosmetics that are suitable for oneself has become a challenge for most girls. In stores, we often see many girls feeling distressed, and there are also many sales guides promoting their products. What ingredients of cosmetics do we choose that are beneficial for our skin? We all know that herbaceous plants are pure natural and non irritating Faced with increasingly healthy lifestyle habits, experts have developed the application of corresponding ingredients extracted from herbaceous plants in whitening and anti-aging cosmetics. The ingredients of plant extracts are more gentle and efficient than those synthesized by chemical synthesis. Below, we will introduce what plant extracts are.
What is a plant extract?
Plant extracts refer to substances extracted or processed from plants (all or a part of them) using appropriate solvents or methods, and can be used in the pharmaceutical, food, daily chemical, and other industries.
Why choose plant extracts?
With the improvement of living standards, people are increasingly resistant to chemically synthesized products, and more people are pursuing more gentle and efficient skincare. Therefore, plant active substances have become increasingly important. Experts have conducted experiments on some plant extracts. They are not only powerful in basic functions (whitening, anti-aging, anti-oxidation), but also may have additional functions such as soothing and repairing. As long as they are well purified, formula stability and other processes, they are really no inferior to chemical components! One of the most typical examples is the glabridin from liquorice.
In recent years, with the increasing attention paid to natural plant extraction, the market demand for plant extracts may experience significant growth. In response to this phenomenon, our company’s R&D department has developed a series of functional plant extract products:

In short, sometimes we may overlook it due to its name (such as various plant extracts), but the true whitening function, safety and reliability, and so on, still rely on various data to prove. Summer skincare is a task based on the premise of hot weather and unstable temperature. As long as mild and non irritating herbal skincare products are used regularly, and attention is paid to daily care and diet, the optimal skin condition can be guaranteed.
