BEACH LIFE – The most effective routine for your skin in summer

Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to start conditioning our skin for sun exposure and holidays by the sea or in the mountains.

Your main objectives at this time of year will be:

1. Curb premature ageing and prevent blemishes

Hours in the sun, although relaxing and enjoyable, involve prolonged exposure to UVA and UVB rays that can cause sunburn and destruction of collagen and elastin which are the main cause of blemishes, devitalised skin and wrinkles.
The key is to incorporate antioxidant actives into your beauty routine that work in synergy with your sunscreen to create a total shield against free radicals.
A perfect morning routine could include 3 steps that guarantee you fresh, protected skin

  • Cleansing
  • Serum with antioxidant actives (Vitamin C)
  • Intelligent sunscreen that cares and protects at the same time.

Our selection of naturally sourced Vitamin C Serums with antioxidant effect brighten skin, even skin tone, minimise pores and improve the appearance of wrinkles.

2. Keeping the skin hydrated

High temperatures, sun exposure and swimming pool water tend to dry out the skin. Your great ally to keep your skin hydrated is Hyaluronic Acid. You can include it in both your morning and evening routine and carry it in your handbag to reuse it throughout the day whenever your skin feels thirsty.

Take note of something important!

You should always seal in your hyaluronic acid serum with a facial cream or oil so that it retains moisture and doesn’t create the opposite effect of drying out your skin.

If you decide to incorporate it into your morning routine and use single active serums the correct order of application would be:

  • Cleansing
  • Vitamin C Serum
  • Hyaluronate Acid Serum
  • Sunscreen

You can also opt for one of our smart serums that include Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid in the same formulation.

3. Prevent acne breakouts and blemishes.

The absence of a proper beauty routine, combined with chlorine from swimming pools and the use of chemical sunscreens can upset the skin’s balance in summer and lead to unwanted acne breakouts.

As soon as the first signs of breakouts appear, incorporate some of these active ingredients with proven efficacy.

4. Use your night routine to repair and nourish

Use your night routine to mitigate the ravages and aggressions caused during the day by nourishing and repairing the skin.
Include products rich in peptides and ceramides to restore the skin’s natural lipid layer and stimulate collagen production to maintain elasticity and firmness.
