In the last article, we discussed the importance of taking changes in the weather into account in terms of your skincare routine. As the seasons change so do the stresses that your skin is put under, so it is important to adapt your skincare routine to reflect these changes.
In this article, we will look at protecting your skin from damage from the sun and swimming, whether in the sea or the swimming pool:
• You will need to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, and this can be done in a variety of ways. For a start, you should be wearing a sunblock every day on your face, but make sure the SPF is sufficient if you go abroad to hotter climes. If you want to avoid clogging pores and causing breakouts, you will find that Dermalogica products from their Solar Defence System will protect your skin without leaving a greasy residue, and can even help to absorb excess oils.
• If you are heading off to the sun and are expecting to take full advantage of either the sea or the swimming pool then make sure you have a little skin kit to carry with you in your bag. If your skin is going to get wet, you need to reapply sunblock frequently, but you will also need to remove any salt or chlorine from your face afterwards, particularly if you have sensitive skin. The Skin Purifying Wipes are perfect for popping in your bag for cleansing on the go.
