Is your skin prepped for the summer?
We’ve all been there, haven’t we? A long-awaited summer holiday that seems an age away suddenly draws closer and before you know it, you’ve less than 2 weeks to get yourself ready!
Don’t be that person any longer! Take the time to get your skin ready for warmer climes and you’ll settle in to holiday mode in a flash!
Drink up, feed up for Summer!
Skin reacts differently in the warmer weather, so first up it’s important to start hydrating it more than usual in the few weeks approaching your departure date. As well as drinking plenty of water and cutting back on alcohol (you WILL look and feel better for it we promise!), remember to feed it like you might a plant; using products containing vitamins and hyaluronic acid which will improve the look and feel of your skin with continued use.
Hyaluronic acid is a major component of skin, particularly helping with tissue repair. Your skin can become inflamed and sore, leaving you with nasty sunburn when suddenly exposed to excessive UVB rays. The cells in the dermis stop producing as much hyaluronan, meaning it degrades more quickly. Using a suitable product both morning and night will help to repair any damage and keep the skin ‘topped up’.
Vitamin-infused products are also key to healthy skin. It’s common knowledge that adding extra vitamins – either orally or applied in products – can improve the tone and texture of the skin and this guide has some useful information for you.
In the video below, Josna, gives you a short overview of the Aspect Dr range.
Give dull skin the brush off!
In addition, we recommend sloughing off those dead skin cells to brighten your skin prior to travel. A couple of exfoliating treatments should be sufficient to give your skin the chance to ready itself for the sunshine. Both a refreshing microdermabrasion or a ‘no scrubbing’ chemical peel treatment will remove those outermost dead skin cells and allow new skin to shine through. Who wouldn’t like some time out relaxing and being pampered before enduring the stuffiness of an airline cabins?!
Here in the clinic we stock a range of products alongside our treatments to aid with the repair and rejuvenation of your skin. Just call us on 01565 651832 or pop in to have a chat with us and find out what is most suited to your particular skin type.
