When the summer holidays are over, special attention must be paid to skin care because there has been overexposure to the sun and the chlorine and sea salt affect our skin. Continue reading this blog to take note of 7 tips to take care of your skin after the summer!
Chlorine from swimming pools irritates our skin and attacks its natural hydrolipidic film. The result is dehydrated and dry skin. On the other hand, seawater reduces the skin’s natural oils and promotes dehydration.
Here are some tips on how to look after your skin after summer:
Face cleansing is a fundamental step because if it is not done, any moisturising product (face serum, facial cream, etc…) will not penetrate properly.
Our 4 in 1 antioxidant face cleanser is perfect for cleansing the face in your daily skincare routine. If you already want to do a professional deep facial cleansing at home, we recommend using our purifying detox mask with ice effect as a first step once a week, you will feel a super nice Mediterranean freshness on your face!
If you want to remove impurities and dead skin cells you must exfoliate your skin, this step is essential after the summer to restore the health of your skin. If you have oily skin you can do it up to twice a week with a mild exfoliator but if you have sensitive skin, it is preferable to do it every 10-15 days, depending on how you tolerate it.
You can use an AHA exfoliator (sensitive skin) or a scrub (combination or oily skin).
Hyaluronic acid retains moisture in the skin and has multiple benefits, for example it stimulates collagen production, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, is an antioxidant because it reduces free radical damage and improves skin hydration, and by moisturising your skin you will prolong your tan!
If you already want a professional skincare routine, we encourage you to apply our illuminating anti-blemish serum before the nourishing face cream.
This is really important both during the holidays and the rest of the year because these sunscreens create a protective barrier between the skin and the sun’s harmful rays.
It is essential that they have UVB and UVA filters, and now there are also filters for blue light from the sun. They should be reapplied every 2 hours or so on the face and body because sweating, bathing or rubbing against clothing reduces their effectiveness.
Remember that ultraviolet radiation accelerates skin ageing, especially on the face, décolleté and hands, and irregular pigmentation can appear in the form of solar lentigines, couperose, actinic keratosis, etc.
A depigmenter (either in cream or serum format) lightens and reduces blemishes, but also regulates melanin production so that they do not appear again. Keep an eye on your moles and freckles because melanoma (skin cancer) usually appears in areas of accumulated melanin, as is the case with them.
Our intensive anti-blemish and moisturising treatment can be very useful for you. Enjoy its natural and organic Mediterranean ingredients!
If you want to prepare your skin for autumn you must exfoliate, cleanse, moisturise and nourish as we have explained before, this is the key! This is the only way to get rid of white spots, brown spots or rough patches caused by chlorine, sea salt or the sun and avoid any acne outbreaks.
A thorough cleansing of the skin, a repairing face serum (preferably one rich in vitamin C) and a moisturising face cream for day and night, if you have spots, use resveratrol (one of the essential ingredients of our face serum). Intense hydration of the face and body after the summer is essential.
If you want to enjoy a 100% healthy and perfect skin, follow the steps above and also add these other aesthetic medicine face and body beauty treatments:
A visit to your dermatologist after the summer is very important to check your moles, so don’t hesitate and go for a consultation!
Obviously you will also need to increase your water intake and increase the amount of fruit and vegetables in your diet, especially those containing vitamin E. Doing sport, not smoking and sleeping is also essential, in short, leading a healthy life. Do you already do this? Tell us about it, we’d love to hear from you!
