Summer Skin Rehab

Summer Skin Rehab

The summer is now over and if the summer has taken a toll on your skin with too much sun cream, sun exposure, late nights, been on holiday and didn’t have your usual skincare routine to hand, long flights, BBQ food, Pimms or just too busy to spend some time on your skin? Don’t worry, we will help you restore and bring your skin back to life.

We all know the power of an exfoliant on your skin and the benefits it has. If you want a recap, click here for that blog post. Exfoliating can make the skin look instantly brighter and can be a helping hand to reveal radiant skin that will make you look well rested and ready to go! Dermalogica have introduced their first at home peel – the AGE Smart Rapid Reveal Peel. A maximum-strength exfoliant that delivers powerful results with no downtime. Rapid Reveal Peel is a light peel and is the highest-strength exfoliant in the Dermalogica retail line and has multiple benefits;

– Kick-starts cell turnover and cell renewal to reveal newer, firmer skin.
– Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
– Helps even skin tone.
– Brightens for a more radiant complexion.

A kick start phase of this peel will provide you with accelerated results and will get your skin looking radiant again in no time. Use 1 tube every day for 3 days then after the third day/ use transition to using 1 per week for maintained results.

To help maintain the brightening effect from your peel, making your skin look alive and banishing dull skin, add a vitamin C based product into your routine. Vitamin C has multiple benefits and will brighten, refresh the skin, help with pigmentation and help to combat sun damage that may have occurred over the summer.

Bring balance and hydrate.

Get a hydrating cleanser. If your skin has been suffering, then this is a good time to go back to basics and a product you know your skin likes without all the fancy and added extras. This will do the job, keep your skin clean, fresh feeling and will bring it back to normal. If you are someone who wears a lot of makeup and a high SPF then we would still recommend a double cleanse to make sure all the grime is washed away however, follow with something gentle and effective. The Decleor Essential Cleansing Milk is a light cleanser to help protect, repair and soften all skin types or the something like the Elemis Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser which replenishes moisture, removes the day’s impurities and adds life to your complexion.

Masque Away

Feeling Spotty and clogged? – The summer sweat, SPF and sangrias may have clogged and blocked your pores causing spots, uneven texture and a dull appearance. Use a pore cleaning mask like the Medik8 Natural Clay Mask to gently detox the skin and promote a clear, radiant complexion. Impurities are removed and the skin’s natural oils are brought back into balance. Pores are undeniably refined.

Skin feeling damaged and stressed? Dermalogica AGE Smart Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque is a powerful masque of concentrated antioxidant vitamins to help skin recover from damage while enhancing barrier properties and promoting healthy tissue regeneration. A great restorative masque to help boost skin hydration and suppleness after exposing skin to stress and sun.
