The summer months can be busy, either enjoying yourself on holiday or at home which makes it easy to overlook your skincare however the summer exposes your skin to a whole range of conditions including sun, swimming pool water, salt water, dust and humidity.
So it’s really important that you maintain your good routine and don’t compromise on your skincare in the summer, here are a few of our tips to help you maintain a healthy glow throughout the summer.
From the beach to the camping don’t forget to apply quality sunscreen to your face, sun exposure can be harmful whatever the location and is a primary cause of ageing and skin damage. We absolutely love SPF version of bestselling Pro-Collagen Marine Cream it’s literally as simple as applying your daily moisturiser with the Benefit of SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection. The unique blend leaves no white streaks on the face is it evenly distributed and offers excellent protection without compromise to texture of the cream.
Whether you are spending time on the beach, walking in the peak district or sat in an office with aircon using a face mist will help to protect your skin as it refreshes and hydrates. Our favourites are the Soothing Apricot toner which is brilliant for sensitive skin and the Rehydrating Ginseng Toner for dehydrated or mature skin and the brand-new superfood Kefir Tea Mist which is proving very popular with our clients. A good facial mist is a great solution for tired skin and can help with refreshingly restore the glow of your skin after a long day on the beach when you want to look and feel ready to party the night away.
During holiday’s exfoliation should be your top priority, we recommend that you incorporate exfoliation as part of your weekly beauty regime. This is the step that’s going to ensure that the canvas that you’re applying all of your creams and make up to is going to be at its optimum condition, there is no point applying the amazing Elemis skincare if your skin is not ready to receive them so this is where an exfoliator comes in.
Our favourite is the Papaya Enzyme peel it works hard without harshly scrubbing the skin just apply the cream and let it work it let it work its magic removing dead skin. You will feel the difference immediately the natural fruit enzymes of the exfoliating Papaya and calming Pineapple smooth and clarify the complexion you just simply rinse it off.
