Glowing Skin in Summer
While enjoying summer days, taking care of your skin is more important than ever; the environment and air conditioning can make your skin dry during summer. The heat and humidity of summer means than you can swap some of your skincare products for light summer-friendly textures. Always remember that hydration is critical!
Tips for Glowing Skin in Summer
Cleansers - Gel Cleansers are a great alternative for summer. Make sure that your cleanser has some hydrating properties; sticky weather might inspire you to over-cleanse but don’t get tempted stick to your twice-daily routine – the correct cleanser will help anti-ageing treatments to work correctly. Our Suggestion is the RC Cleanser, it leaves the skin feeling hydrated and renewed since it has a mild exfoliating property.
Serums - Vitamin C Serum (ascorbic acid) is a must! It is a fantastic ingredient that helps prevent further damage from the environment and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Try the C Anti-ageing Serum with 20% ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and other essential ingredients to hydrate the skin.
Moisturizer - summer months need products that let your skin breathe, go for a lighter cream or serum as a moisturizer. Try the Hyaluronic Serum if you have normal to combination skin. Our Hyaluronic Serum is rich in Hyaluronic, with Niacinamide and critical ingredients like peptides for anti-ageing benefits. A tinted Moisturizer is also always a good option so try the Urban Essential Zinc SPF15 alongside.
SPF - when going out to the beach/golf or any outdoor activity, apply a sunscreen. Essential to re-apply every couple of hours so make sure you carry one with you – always check directions on the sunscreen bottle in particularly if you are swimming or perspiring (sweating)!
