Finally, summer is here in the UK.
We have waited patiently for the sun to come out and the clouds to drift away, but this doesn’t mean you can throw caution to the wind and forget about looking after your skin.
Whilst it is tempting to bare all and let your heat starved skin soak up the rays, this isn’t going to do you any favours in the long term.
We have put together a guide of some of the best Dermalogica products that will let you make the most of the warm weather but not at the cost of harming your skin, or hair.
If you are heading to the beach, running track or pool, don’t forget your Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50. This sheer lotion uses ‘oleosome microspheres’ to help enhance the SPF performance of the product, which means it can counteract moisture loss caused by exposure to the sun. This is a water-resistant, broad spectrum wonder lotion that can be used on all skin types and is best applied at least 15 minutes before heading out into the sun.
If you want to really look after your complexion and prevent burning, premature ageing and pigmentation, Dermalogica Pure Light is your friend. This is a medium-weight, daytime broad-spectrum moisturiser that treats hyperpigmentation while protecting the skin from UV light. For the best results, smooth a generous amount of the lotion of onto your face and neck (avoid the eye area) at least 30 minutes before you go out in the sun but remember, you can actually use this all year long for ongoing protection.
If you want some colour in your face but don’t want to wear full make-up in the heat, why not try the Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint? This is a Broad Spectrum sunscreen that’s infused with tinted earth minerals and offers protection, colour. This lightly tinted sunscreen is bursting with natural humectants that protect against moisture loss. The tint blends easily on face and neck and can be used on even the most sensitive skin.
You might not be able to control the weather, but you can take charge of your lips. The intense heat can really dry out your lips so take care of them with the Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment. Shea Butter softens your lips whilst a combination of Vitamin E and Oat Extract boost the skin’s natural defense system. Lavender Extract helps ensure antiseptic application and the overall outcome is smooth, kissable lips all summer long.
As the temperature rises, it is only natural we sweat. The Dermalogica Environmental Control Deodorant can be used on even the most sensitive skin and is a safe alternative to irritating antiperspirants. The cool, invisible formula smoothly glides on and is quickly absorbed, leaving no pesky residue or stains. A blend of Rosemary, Lemon Peel, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oils fight odour and leave you smell fresh rather than stale.
Whilst we cover our arms and legs in sun-cream, we often forget about looking after our hands, which is crazy as they are in the sun at a lot of the time. As well as using sunscreen on your hands, also treat them to a little pampering with the Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment. This gorgeous, non-greasy cream is packed with nourishing, pure vitamins that help to repair chapped hands and strengthen nails. Provitamin B5 and Algae Extract are mixed with Sweet Almond Oil to help heal dry, rough hands and provide an invisible barrier against further damage.
Be sure to wear sunglasses and a hat, to drink plenty of water and stay out of the sun between 12 and 3pm.
Happy summer everyone and if you need any advice on which products would work well for you this summer, get in touch and we will be very happy to help.
