Restore & Revitalize your post-summer skin
Summer is nearly over, whether you were home or away, wore plenty of sunscreen and even made good use of skincare products, your skin needs to be spoiled. And, with autumn just around the corner, there’s no better time to get rid of dead skin cells and damage caused by summer time.
During the summer, we are more exposed to sunlight, and although it is necessary for good health, it can also be dangerous, causing diseases in our skin. The best way to start taking care of the sun is from a very young age. When in the summer avoid prolonged sun exposure and choose to be in the shade instead of direct sunlight. Wear protective clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. m. and 4 p.m. m. Sunscreen is especially important between these hours, when the sun’s rays are most intense.
Too much tan, sun, chlorine, wind and air conditions can lead to long-term consequences on the skin: hyperpigmentation, fine lines and dryness; so it’s worth doing some damage control to limit the effects.
The best place to start on your road to recovery is with a gentle and mild cleansing routine. To help minimize the signs of sun-damaged skin, we suggest investing in one infused with vitamin C, which not only gives you great antioxidant protection but also improves skin firmness.
If your skin is feeling tight and looking dry or flaky it’s probably because the sun’s sucked all the moisture out of it, so opting for a gentle, controlled formula will help to slough off dead skin while hydrating it too. Exfoliating also helps any reparative skin treatments to be able to reach deep enough below the surface to have long lasting results.
This is Ideal for dehydrated or damaged skin. Serums deliver a more potent dose of hydration and anti-ageing benefits because they are lighter and contain a higher concentration of ingredients.
Professional peeling treatments
“Professional” peelings done by an aesthetician such as organic peeling treatment, fruit acid peelings or even micro-dermabrasion are ideal too. A peeling stimulates the blood flow and thus the regeneration of your skin. Afterwards, the skin is very receptive and ingredients can better penetrate into the skin.
Even if we do not realize it immediately, our skin steadily loses moisture during the warm and sun intensive months. Moisturizers repair skin that feels weak and fragile while keeping your skin hydrated with the added bonus of soothing acne too. A high supply of moisture is very important, so use products that contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and aloe vera. Applying also an intensive moisturizing mask once a week is recommended to have best results.
Professional laser treatments are strongly recommended within these days, besides the daily care. Spending too much time in the pool and on the beach can damage a few layers of the skin, as time passes, these damages appear on the upper surface of the skin in the form of age spots, sun spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and other imperfections. By getting laser skin tightening, which is a customized treatment to each person’s needs, skin tone and skin types, our experts can treat pigmentation without damaging the outer layer of the skin.
Fall is the perfect season to get laser as daylight hours are shorter, so your skin gets plenty of time to recover and restore complexion without being exposed to UVB and UVA rays most of the day.
