Summer, the perfect time to get away, recharge, and relax. Though as the temperature changes, so should your skincare routine. No need overhaul your entire regimen, just follow these simple tips to bring out your best summer skin.
1. Alternate Cleansers: With warmer weather approaching, consider alternating your sensitive or hydrating face wash with a more purifying oil-absorbing cleanser. Avoid cleansers with sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), that’s commonly found in detergents! Look for ingredients such as healing silver ions and salicylic acid (clarifying and brightening) as well as resveratrol (super anti-oxidant and detoxing). These cleansers will not only dissolve make up and dirt, but will leave your skin calm, clean and clear.
2. Exfoliate More Often: Your body is constantly shedding skin that if not exfoliated, will accumulate and create a dull and lifeless complexion.
To reveal a fresh young complexion, grab a gentle facial exfoliator and hit the shower. The steam will gently soften your skin and allow the scrub to easily slough off dead dull skin! Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements and leave on for 2 minutes. If your skin tends to be oilier in summer, add an extra exfoliation to your weekly routine.
3. Treat & Prevent Discoloration: Summer is the season for effortless and minimal make-up. We’d all like to avoid piling on cover-up to hide an uneven complexion. With sophisticated new active ingredients, we can not only lighten uneven discoloration- but prevent it as well. Our amazing Fade Away dark spot corrector contains a daisy flower extract that visibly lightens spots and brightens complexion as well as protects skin from future damage. Use it in the AM under your moisturizer and sunscreen to prevent sun spots and in the PM to reverse previous damage.
4. Nourish & Protect: While it might seem counterintuitive, do not hesitate to use your facial oil during warm or humid season. Oil-free products can starve your skin of nutrition, while super-potent flax seed oil is rich in anti-oxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that your skin needs. Just a few drops morning and evening will give you that sun kissed glow you’ve been waiting for all year.
