Summer is still in full swing, and it’s not too late to update your skincare routine! Island products like ours and summertime go hand in hand, and we’re here to help you find your next summer love (when it comes to skincare, that is!). Here are some things you can consider when it comes to figuring out what product works best for you and your summer lifestyle!
What activities do you love doing during the summer?
When it comes to fitting skincare into your lifestyle in the summer, it’s important to think about what it is you love doing during the summer months. Are you more of a chill at home kind of person? Or maybe you love hanging with your family and friends, or doing work around the house or yard now that it’s warm outside. Perhaps summer is your ultimate time to shop ‘til you drop, or you might be the type of person who loves hanging out at the beach day after day. Or, you could be a hiker, or a seeker of extreme outdoor sports.
All of these activities are greatly different from each other, and each one can dictate a certain lifestyle and skincare routine. If you’re constantly out hiking or in the outdoors, you might appreciate a good cleanser or aloe gel for the sun, or if you’re into shopping and spending time with family, a good moisturizer might help you to look and feel your best.
How convenient do you want your products to be?
Another thing to consider when figuring out a product to use this summer is to decide how convenient you want your products to be. Do you want something that’s best used at home, or on the go? Something you can toss in your bag to use later? Our lifestyles tend to change a bit in the summer, so deciding between a lip treatment you can use anywhere, or a lip scrub you have to do at home, is key!
Consider the ingredients!
Here are Hanalei, we love to utilise natural Hawaiian botanicals in our skincare, and we pride ourselves on our ingredients. Taking a look to see what ingredients interest you the most in our products is a great way to go about deciding which products are going to be the best for you and your lifestyle, so that you can get the most out of it this summer!
What is your experience with skincare?
One last thing to consider when deciding what products will work best for you this summer, is thinking about your level of experience with skincare, along with how much time you have for skincare this summer. Are you super busy between traveling and working your side hustle? Choose products that are easy to use like our Sugar Lip Scrub and Makai Marine Hawaiian Face Moisturizer. If you have a little more time, and experience, think about trying out our Lip Treatment instead!
