This year is likely to prove troublesome for those of us who suffer from hay fever and other allergies; the relatively mild winter and unsettled spring weather will increase the risk of high pollen counts which, when combined with the effects of pollution, can leave your complexion looking red and feeling sore and itchy.
If this is the case for you, then think about adapting your skincare routine to combat the aggressive effects of seasonal environmental factors. You may find that your usual skincare products simply make your skin feel worse during this time, but rather than cutting back on your regimen, go for products that will help to reduce sensitivity and protect your fragile complexion.
Dermalogica’s UltraCalming System could provide your skin with the relief it so badly needs during the summer months, and can also help to alleviate the symptoms of eczema flare-ups, leaving your skin soothed and soft.
It is important to maintain your skin’s natural protective barrier during this period, so you will need a cleanser that can get the job done without stripping or irritating your skin. Try using the UltraCalming Cleanser morning and night for an effective but gentle cleansing action, followed by a cooling spritz of the UltraCalming Mist.
Make sure you apply the UltraCalming Barrier Repair before you expose your face to the world: it soothes the skin, repairs its natural barrier and provides a shield against further environmental aggression.
There is no need to put up with uncomfortable, reactive skin during the summer months; invest in a Skin Treatment Kit to keep your symptoms under control and see you through the summer months.
