Malaysia is known for its hot and humid weather, tropical climate, and tropical rain showers throughout the year. The hottest months of the year are usually from June to August. Throughout these months, we sweat frequently and our skin gets irritated more than ever.
Taking care of our skin in Malaysia’s hot and humid climate can be challenging. One of the reasons we get sunburns and acne appears out of nowhere. All of this contributes to skin imbalance and has an impact on our mood. In order to achieve healthy skin, we must take extra care of it by allowing it to breathe.
What happened to our skin when it is exposed to hot weather?
The skin becomes dry and loses moisture, causing it to feel dehydrated, sensitive, and the skin is inflamed easily. The loss of moisture causes the skin to be imbalance. That is why keeping your body hydrated by drinking enough water is very important during this hot weather season to keep your skin hydrated too!
Many of us prefer to stay in a cold room and drink cold beverages to cool off from the heat outside. Our skin needs that too! To cool down from the sun and the heat. How to do that?
Skin Calming Ingredient: Chamomile
Chamomile is well-known for its calming properties and is an essential ingredient in our skin care products. Not only does it soothe the skin, but it also helps to relieve the redness, inflammation, and irritation caused by heat. Chamazulene is a compound found in Chamomile that helps to relieve redness, irritation, rashes, and burns.
Argital’s Chamomile Cream works wonders on the skin, not only calming it but also moisturizing it from the dryness caused by hot weather. Chamomile is also considered as a natural skin brightener. It can also be used as a sun care cream because it protects against UV light. It’s refreshing scent relaxes the mind.
Cleanse with Green Clay and Chamomile
Our skin requires regular cleansing to remove dead skin cells, excess oil, and dirt from our outdoor activities, which can clog pores. While we wear mask all day, our face accumulates all the dirt especially if we wear makeup underneath.
Proper cleansing clears the skin and provides sufficient hydration, as our skin tends to be dry and frequently sweaty in hot weather. Using less makeup, such as foundation, allows the skin to breathe while also lowering the risk of breakouts (caused by the sweat, bacteria, oil and dirt on the skin), making you feeling uncomfortable.
Green Clay is used in Argital’s Brightening Cleanser to keep the skin moist while cleansing. Centifolia Rose is also included in the cleanser to provide a natural glow. Phytic Acid has antioxidant properties that help to enhance the natural glow. This cleanser also contains Chamomile, which helps to calm the skin. All of the ingredients are formulated to keep the skin moist without drying off the skin.
Calm down with Sicilian Green Clay
Sicilian Green Clay works wonders on the skin in both hot and cold weather. The active sea minerals are beneficial to the skin and body. Sicilian Green Clay moisturizes the skin, balances the oil, and cleanses the pores to fulfill the needs of the skin. Most importantly, it calms and stabilizes the skin.
