TIPS for Pretty Summer Skin!
1. Exfoliate for Clearer, Smoother Skin
What it does:
Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from moisturizers.
Perform in the mornings prior to moisturizer, SPF and make-up application.
Tip: Make-up will last longer on an exfoliated skin!
After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating cream to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with a Broad Spectrum SPF.
2. Keep Skin Hydrated
Drink lots of water! Keeping your body and skin hydrated in the summer is very important.
Up your regimen’s level of hydration with Hyaluronic Acid. This universal booster provides all day moisture retention, and quenches dehydrated skin to impart a supple, smooth complexion and instant correction.
Tip: works best when layered underneath moisturizer.
3. When in Doubt, Apply (and reapply!) Sunscreen
It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen, you must apply enough, and apply frequently. Studies indicate that most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should.
A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass.
Re-apply every two hours.
Tip: Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.
Today’s sophisticated formulas and technology let you select sun protection that works with your skin condition. That means you can choose from oil-free, mattifying formulas for oily skin, or moisturizing formulas for dry skin. Whichever skin type you may have, always choose a Broad Spectrum sunscreen!
4. Repair and Treat Sun Damage
What causes skin damage:
UV light causes photo-aging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin and wrinkles, whether you have burned your skin or not. When sunlight comes in contact with skin a cascade of damage results (including the stripping of barrier lipids) causing inflammation, production of reactive oxygen molecules that affect healthy cell growth, and stimulation of collagen destructing enzymes.
What to do: A tan may be a popular summer look, but it indicates damage. Bombard your skin with age-fighting ingredients to help undo any damage that may occur, and to further protect it from the aging effects of UV.
