When the holiday is over: skin balancing essentials

Why is it that we often get spotty skin after our summer holidays?

Changes in our hormones, sweat, sunscreen and a less than healthy diet can all invite those spots and large pores to rear their less than attractive heads post-holiday.

You can overcome your problem skin with a few easy steps. Exfoliating will help to make sure the skin has been thoroughly cleansed and pore-clogging debris removed. I would then make sure that you are applying a mask directly after exfoliating. The mask I like to recommend to my clients is Herbal Lavender Repair Mask as it will balance, calm and soothe the skin (especially if you've had a bit too much sun). I would also recommend that you are double cleansing - I love to use Smart Cleanse Micellar Water as it’s quick, easy, and ensures the skin is completely clean: the perfect pre-cleanse choice. You don't need water so it can be used if you’re at a music festival or camping.

The simple action of double cleansing is a great pore un-blocker and it also helps to prevent the inflammation that leads to spot outbreaks. I would avoid any sun products or make-up, which can clog up your pores, and to really give your skin the healthy kick start it needs with a month’s treatment of Superfood Facial Oil. It’s power-packed with Omegas 3,6 and 9 will is the perfect skin treat as it delivers all the vitamins and minerals your skin needs to get back on track.

Uneven skin tone and brown sunspots can become all the more prominent after our summer holidays due to the UV rays from the sun that trigger our melanin (pigment) producing cells to misbehave, scattering uneven patches of brown pigment all over the face and body. At ELEMIS we have the solution.

The latest formulation for targeting pigmentation in a three-stage programme containing a White Brightening Complex that harnesses potent melanin inhibitors and white brightening actives, designed to synergistically combat age spots, dark spots, uneven skin tone and irregular pigmentation.

ELEMIS’ NEW White Brightening system is a truly innovative solution for the treatment of pigmentation and for a whiter, brighter, more even skin tone. Dark spots, age spots and excess pigmentation formed through a combination of UV exposure and hormonal changes can cause skin to look dull, uneven and aged. ELEMIS White Brightening delivers a unique skin compatible system that will help fade the appearance of pigmentation you can see and inhibit further pigmentation occurring.

Finally, does your skin look wrinklier since your summer holidays?
Think of what a grape looks like when it has been starved of hydration and how your skin is feeling now - are there any similarities?

Now is the time to introduce your night time treatment of Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream. The exceptional blend of Laminaria Digitata and Red Coral helps to maintain optimum skin condition and work with the skin’s natural renewal cycle during the night, while the unique
