Summer Proof Your Skin With These Easy Tips

24th May 2017

 

The all too welcome arrival of summer has us peeling back layers in everything but skincare. While we neatly box up sweaters and scarves, our skincare regime requires vital extra steps to accommodate the changing season.

 

Why? Because increased sun exposure causes a myriad of problems for our poor skin. It works overtime to protect itself from free radical damage; It fights to slow down the overproduction of melanin (pigment) to prevent pigmentation. Plus, heat causes a surge in oil production. With that in mind, this is the best summer routine you can do for your skin.

 

 

Cleansing is more important than you think

Heat sends oil glands into overtime often leaving you with unwanted shine. Combine that with increased sweat and you’ll understand why cleansing in summer is crucial. All of this can throw off the pH balance of skin which is why we turn to the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm. Once in contact with water, it transforms into a milk which returns skin to a healthy balance.

 

Don’t forget about evening skincare too

On a summer day, your skin is in the boxing ring fighting extreme heat and defending against sun damage. This means your night skincare is more important than ever before. Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil is a skin recovery cocktail that’s packed with antioxidants and 10 times more vitamin E than any other oil. Combined, this killer duo work to fight free radicals from prematurely aging skin while the peptides work as cell whisperers telling every cell to repair itself and work at peak performance. The result? Brighter, revitalized and healthier-looking skin.

 

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Increased air conditioning and skin working overtime is thirsty work so causes increased moisture loss. Although you might feel hot and sticky, skin is often dehydrated in summer. Despite hydrating for twelve hours, Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has a light gel texture so won’t feel heavy and instantly absorbs without any greasy residue.
