With the arrival of summer, you’ll find yourself spending a lot more time than usual outdoors so you can soak up the rays, the blue skies and everything else this gorgeous season has to offer.
While summer can certainly boost your spirits, it may not be as beneficial for your skin…
The hot temperatures can cause you to sweat a lot more than usual and this can cause clogged pores and an increase in blemishes, which is something no one wants to deal with.
Fortunately, we have put together a few helpful ways to manage this issue along with a few more of the most common summer skin care issues, so you can enjoy the season without worrying about your skin!
Sweaty skin and clogged pores
This is one of the most common problems we hear of and it makes sense, especially if you love soaking up the rays poolside or on the beach.
Our tip here is the same we offer for a heavy sweat fest at the gym. Keep your hair up and out of your face and avoid wearing makeup if you’ll be spending time at the pool or the beach, as this will only clog your pores up more. Keep some of our Antioxidant Toning Infusion on hand and spritz whenever your skin needs a refresh or hydration boost.
Once out of the sun, be sure to immediately cleanse away excess oil with our Gentle Cleansing Milk before following up with some more toner and your moisturizer or serum. Keeping your skin clean is key.
Dry skin is just as common as oily skin during summer thanks to the drying effects of the sun and chlorine pools.
Always be sure to rinse your skin with cool water after swimming in a chlorine pool and apply a serum morning and night to keep your skin hydrated and balanced. Our Fresh Start Serum is brimming in antioxidants to fight free radicals and prevent skin aging as well as to keep your skin perfectly hydrated.
Redness and irritation
Redness and irritation may affect you even if your skin is not sensitive due to too much time spent in the sun, sweating and even bug bites as bugs and insects all come out of hiding in the warmer months.
Treat your skin to some real love by indulging in a weekly mask filled with soothing and loving ingredients. Our Perfect Complexion Masque contains incredibly soothing and calming colloidal oatmeal along with antioxidant rich Vitamin C to reduce inflammation and calm any redness or irritation in the skin. Vitamin C also has the added bonus of boosting collagen production for firmer, plumper and more youthful skin.
Nothing ages the skin faster than years of unprotected sun exposure. UV rays break down structural proteins contributing to saggy skin, increases the risk of lines and wrinkles and even contributes to hyperpigmentation (dark spots on the skin).
To prevent and treat any current damage you may have, we recommend our Fresh Start serum morning and night followed up with our Hydrating Face Fluid packed in hydrating and antioxidant ingredients like Vitamin E to neutralize free radicals and aid in skin repair and renewal.
We hope these tips help you to enjoy your best summer yet!
