The summer season in the Philippines can be very hot and humid. You need to take extra care of yourself, so you don't get dehydrated. The summer heat can damage your hair and skin, especially when exposed to the sun. So apart from drinking lots of fluids, you need to do the following using self-care essentials from Kultura for a Philippine summer.
Use a natural moisturizing shampoo
Your hair can get very dry and limp because of the summer heat. This is why you need a shampoo that moisturizes your hair and scalp while also helping add body and volume to each strand, keeping it from being dull and limp.
Daila’s Gugo Shampoo with aloe vera and gugo bark is specially formulated with natural ingredients to keep your hair and scalp healthy. The gugo bark helps add volume to your hair, giving it a bouncy feel and soft texture.
Zenutrients also has a moisturizing shampoo that’s specially made for dry hair. To seal in the moisture for smooth, healthy hair, use the Zenutrients Aloe Vera Moisturizing Conditioner after shampooing.
Include natural coconut oil in your self-care routine
Kultura has 100% pure Philippine coconut oil, which you should include in your self-care routine. Apart from coconut oil being an effective skin moisturizer, hair conditioning treatment, and makeup remover, it can also soothe itchy, dry, and flaky skin.
Often, the summer heat causes allergies and skin irritation to break out. Just use Laurin pure coconut oil or this extra virgin coconut oil from The Tropical Shop, and you can keep your skin healthy despite the heat. It is also great to dab some coconut oil on your lips, especially if they are dry and chapped.
Cleanse your skin with natural soap
Spending a lot of time under the sun can cause your skin tone to be uneven. This natural dalandan soap can help even out skin tone while keeping the skin nourished and moisturized.
You can also cleanse your skin without drying it using this Snow Flower soap by Jabon Jabon. It has tea tree oil, guava extract, and grapeseed oil, among other natural and safe ingredients. The same brand also has a feminine wash bar rich in natural oils.
Cleansing your skin with these natural soaps ensures that your skin does not get dried out by too many chemicals, worsening the effects of the summer heat. It is always a safe choice to go for what’s natural.
Get massages using natural oils
When you get a massage, the oil used on your skin is more deeply absorbed than when you simply apply it to your skin after a shower. This is why it’s essential to use only oils with natural ingredients. Even if the oils contain a fragrance, it’s still made with natural extracts and safer on your skin.
Choosing these natural self-care products from Kultura makes your summer even more enjoyable. You won’t have to worry about your skin and hair nor suffer skin breakouts, an itchy scalp, and other skin irritations caused by the heat.
