It FINALLY seems like we might be seeing some sort of summer, here in the UK, which means that no sooner have we packed our brollies away, us Brits will be griping about how hot it is (seriously, are we never happy with the weather?!). There are, however, several products which can help us stay cool at this time of year so we thought we’d take a look at the best of what Decleor and Dermalogica has to offer.
One of the more inconvenient aspects of getting all hot and bothered is the sweat, which can rapidly become body odour if you don’t use a bacteria-killing product to keep things under control. Dermalogica’s Environmental Control Deodorant is a completely natural product which controls bacteria, kills under-arm odour and won’t irritate your skin in the process, perfect for helping you to feel secure about your scent at this time of year.
Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist is a fantastic multi-functional product which can be used to soothe sensitised skin which is feeling red and inflamed, especially after resurfacing treatments or waxing, but is also fabulous for hot weather. Spritzing yourself with this Aloe-based product will keep you cool, help your skin to stay fully hydrated and will offer maximum comfort when you’re getting hot under the collar.
If you’ve capitalised on the warmer weather and spent the day outside, you may well have caught the sun and be feeling in need of a soothing treatment for burned skin. This after sun balm from Decleor is a rich, 100% natural formula which will intensively repair the skin after sun exposure and reduce redness, as well as the tight or burning feeling you’re left with after too much sun.
If you’re a youngster and want a product to keep you cool as well as actively helping to deal with acne or hormonal breakouts, then this toner from the Clear Start range is ideal. As well as offering a calming spritz to keep the face and neck refreshed in warmer weather, this product also contains ingredients to help control sebum, reduce the over-all appearance of excess oil and spots and and anti-microbial ingredient to kill spot-causing bacteria.
Aftersun for your face is essential, but so is something for the rest of your body – ever burned your shoulders in the sun and spent the rest of the evening in agony, every time you move?! Decleor’s Soothing After Sun Milk for the Body offers the skin a gentle, soothing layer of hydration to intensively cool and nourish the skin. It helps you to develop and even tan, prevents peeling and will repair damage done by over-exposure to the sun.
