Summer is finally here! What's better than feeling the sun on your skin, wearing a summer dress that's been sitting in your wardrobe for months, enjoying long evenings with a glass (or two) of rosé or having a glowing skin? But be careful, sun can cause skin damage. Here are some tips to keep your skin beautiful and sun safe this summer.
During summer, your skin is busy fighting dehydration and holding moisture in. Drinking a lot of water and using face and body moisturiser is really important to keep your skin hydrated.
During winter, temperatures are lower and the air is drier. As a result, your skin becomes incredibly sensitive. You need to use repairing and nourishing products. During Summer, your skin is sweating and tends to be dehydrated. Pores are dilated and sebum production increases. What your skin needs now is hydration.
Your skin has a 24-hour natural cycle that can be broken down into 3 phases: morning, evening and night. During summer, we recommend you start the day with a moisturising cream, along with a mattifying formula to keep shine at bay. To regenerate the skin in the evening, use a richer cream and complete your routine with a night cream, mask or serum.
