As summer sets upon us, it’s important to focus on restoring and repairing our skin after over exposure to the summer rays. It’s essential to understand how we can keep our skin looking healthy and smooth ahead of season change.
SOS – Save overexposed skin
We all love sun-soaking and building that bronzy look during summer days, but we need to be aware of the toll it takes on the skin. These are some of the most common implications of sun exposure:
Premature aging: sun exposure can accelerate the aging process, leading to fine lines and a loss of skin elasticity.
Hyperpigmentation: basking in the sun can also lead to dark spots and uneven skin tone, making your skin look mature and fatigued.
Dryness: the sun is an excellent source of Vitamin D and can be beneficial for skin conditions such as: psoriasis, acne, and eczema. However, it can cause moisture loss that can leave your skin dry and flaky.
Hair damage: sun rays, along with humidity, chlorine and salt water can weaken your hair, causing it to be dry, dull and prone to breakage.
Our Guide to Restore and Repair Your Sun-Exposed Skin
Restore from head to toe with our quick and effective tips that will keep your skin and hair looking healthy, glowing and soft for the upcoming autumn season.
- Bye bye dead skin
Exfoliation is key to keeping your skin looking healthier and revived. Exfoliation helps remove the dead skin cells and promote skin rejuvenation. It’s important to remember to cleanse the face and body; we recommend starting with our Stimulating Body Scrub in the shower and cleansing your face with our Balancing Tonerand revived complexion.
- Brighten up!
Struggling with dull skin? A brightening booster or a glowy serum can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Use after cleansing the face and before your moisturizer. A consistent – purify, hydrate, relax routine promotes glowing skin.
- Nourish, moisturize, repeat!
Replenish lost moisture on the face and body with our Hydrating Day Cream and Moisturizing Body Lotion. These two products can help restore your skin’s hydration and keep it toned, nourished and supple. And don’t forget to treat yourself to our Rich Nourishing Mask every now and then for an added hydration boost! We recommend using it twice per week for maximum results.
- Skin protection
As we move towards autumn, we can often forget that sun rays can still be harmful during the colder months. It’s essential to apply UVA and UVB SPF daily; even when you’re indoors you can still be exposed to UVA rays. Protect your skin and keep it moisturized with our Age Defying Regenerating Day Cream SPF 30.
- No more dull and damaged hair
Don’t forget about your hair! Give those strands the nourishment and restoration it needs with a complete and extra-pampering hair care routineo keep it soft, shiny and healthy. We suggest our Nourish and Repair Shampoo and Conditioner for ultimate hydration. For extra silky tresses, apply the Nourish and Repair Hair Mask twice a week to keep the frizz at bay.
Having fun in the sun and soaking up every bit of summer is a feeling we wish would never end. When you’re relaxing and having fun in the sun, we can often forget how harmful sun exposure can be to our skin. UVA and UVB exposure can affect us even when we least expect it. That’s why a thoughtful post-summer skincare routine is key to getting you ready for the upcoming fall season.
As we transition into the new season, your skin can struggle to adapt to the change in temperature. We know it can be quite difficult to find the right skincare regime to stick to during the colder seasons.
