How to restore your post-summer vacation skin?
What the sun does to our skin
Summer holidays are almost over and you feel totally recovered and balanced. Unfortunately, your mirror picture tells a different story. The first tan has disappeared and numerous sun bathes, chlorine, wind and air conditions make your skin look pale and stressed.
The callused skin has thickened because of the sun and a light callosity has been built. That is why the skin is rougher and flakier as usually and needs more moisture. Furthermore, free radicals are built by the UV radiation and collagen fibres, the supporting tissue of our skin, are reduced. Especially during the summer months, many people also complain about small brown pigment spots looking like freckles which are caused by UV radiation.
Whether you were home or away, wore plenty of sunscreen and even made good use of the shade, chances are you picked up some incidental UV exposure this summer. And, with autumn just around the corner, there’s no better time to take stock of any damage to your skin.
The proper after-care for summer skin
Generally, your skin should not be neglected at any time of the year. Nevertheless, it is particularly important to take intensive care of your skin after the summer and the annual beach holiday. Take this as an opportunity to have a professional beauty treatment at your aesthetician.
Peelings restore radiance to the skin
In a first step, you should free your skin from dead skin cells. Peeling should start with the Face-It Peeling Gel designed to clarify a dull, clogged complexion, Face-It Peeling Gel gently absorbs and removes dirt and dead skin cells, promoting a clean and fresh appearance.
Enriched withRosemary, Sage and Basil infusion and boosted with Ginger & Chamomile extracts, Aloe Vera leaf juice and Vitamin E, this wonder working rejuvenating formula provides your skin with the ultimate cleansing ritual. A peeling, stimulates the blood flow and thus the regeneration of your skin.
Afterwards, the skin is very receptive and ingredients can better penetrate into the skin. A high supply of moisture is now very important. Products with moisturizing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, allantoin as well as alginates are perfect. So called hydration boosters are ideal for a quick care effect: highly-concentrated serums or ampules.
Treat your skin with a moisture treatment
Even if we do not realize it immediately, our skin steadily loses moisture during the warm and sun intensive months. Nevertheless, please do not follow the principle “more is more” by using greasy and very rich products. They often only operate superficially and do not penetrate into the deeper skin layers.
You will first get the impression that your skin has been moisturized, but you will wash away many ingredients with the next shower and thus a sustainable effect cannot be guaranteed. Rather go for products which bind and feed moisture.
Cure treatments are strongly recommended within these days besides the daily care. For best results, applying an intensive moisturizing mask, such as Herbeautiful Facial Mask once a week is recommended.
