Moving to Dubai can be an exciting and transformative experience. The bustling city offers a unique blend of traditional culture and modern amenities. However, one thing that many people overlook when moving to Dubai is the impact it can have on their skin. The harsh desert climate, high temperatures, and humidity can all take a toll on your skin, so it's important to make some changes to your skincare routine. We at Science and Tradition have rounded a few important things you should change in your skincare routine when you move to Dubai.
First and foremost, it's important to choose products that are suitable for the climate. The hot and humid weather can cause skin damage, wrinkles, sagging, and dark spots due to UV radiation and harsh pollution. There are two things that are scientifically proven to combat this and reverse sun damage- Antioxidants & Sun Protection (sunscreen).
Antioxidants have powerful anti-aging benefits that protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and environmental destroyers like UV and pollution. Use as many antioxidant-infused products as possible. Our Antioxidant Infused Cleansing Gel is filled with skin-loving antioxidants like Kale, Aloe vera, Moringa, Green tea, Holy Basil, Licorice Root and different vitamins like Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5. This anti-aging cleansing gel uses innovative, coconut-derived surfactants instead of harsh soaps like SLS to ensure your skin is hydrated, bright, and fresh. It is also pH balanced and has a jelly texture that glides over skin! A gentle cleansing gel like this will remove impurities and excess oil from your skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
We all know we should double cleanse as much as possible- especially while using makeup. Use an oil that not only removes makeup but also adds antioxidants to your skin at the same time! Our Antioxidant Infused Replenishing Oil is 100% pure oils that are non-comedogenic (meaning it does not clog pores). This means that we chose each and every oil in the Antioxidant Infused Replenishing Oil to hydrate and transform skin without clogging your pores. Moreover, the oils also help reduce acne flareups and dark spots so it can even be used by oily and acne prone skin!
The Antioxidant Infused Replenishing Oil is used by thousands of people all over the world for different purposes! It can be used to remove makeup, it can be used as a relaxing facial massage or body massage oil, or even as a final-step facial oil for that glow and extra boost of hydration.
Last but not the least, use a Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen that has SPF50 every single day to ensure you protect your skin. There is absolutely no use in incorporating antioxidants if you don’t protect it using a sunscreen.
In addition to using the right products, there are other things you can do to take care of your skin when living in Dubai. For example, you should avoid spending too much time in the sun, especially during the peak hours of the day. If you do need to be outside, make sure to wear a hat and sunglasses in addition to using a sunscreen to protect your skin and eyes from the sun's harmful rays.
You should also drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. The hot and humid climate can cause you to sweat more, which can lead to dehydration. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and consider carrying a water bottle with you when you're out and about.
