But knowing and taking into account the features of your skin, summer or vacation in warm countries can be lived without losing the beauty and health of your skin. 90% of success is the right summer care!

What you need to know about skincare in summer

  1. In summer it is more important than ever to cleanse properly, because during the warm season sebum reproduction increases, sweating increases, which can lead to irritation, rashes, hyperkeratosis. Therefore, it is necessary to cleanse the skin gently, but qualitatively, so that it can function properly and remain healthy. Cleansed skin provides better penetration of the funds that you then apply to it.
  2. In the summertime, antioxidant protection is a must. Antioxidants reduce the effects of free radicals and help your skin stay healthy. They help protect against ultraviolet rays, harmful airborne pollutants and other negative factors. We recommend using antioxidants year-round or 3 months before the warm and sunny period.
  3. Of course, in summer we must not forget about moisturizing, we need to pay special attention to it and remember about the periorbital area, because the mobility of expression lines in summer increases many times over. We squint a lot more in the sun. Skin should be well hydrated in summer, but not overloaded.
  4. Use protective cream in the sun, it should be applied to all exposed areas of the body, as the skin is an integral organ. SPF products should be used all year round, because there is UV exposure to our skin even on cloudy days. Don’t forget that the action of SPF products has time intervals, and the cream should be renewed during the day. This is more difficult if you use decorative cosmetics, but now there are amazing powder textures with SPF protection on the market.
