While you may be looking forward to long summer days, lots of things can wreak havoc on your skin if you’re not careful. The skin is our largest organ, and it is essential to take care of it, especially during the summertime when UV levels can wreak havoc.
Although it might seem strange because it’s the time of year when we tend to have more contact with water, our skin does get dehydrated in summer. Add in the effects of humidity, high temperatures, air conditioning, chlorine from pools and salt from the ocean…. it’s easy to see why all this might have an impact on our skin.
How can we reduce blemishes?
Heat and humidity may cause oil glands to work overtime. Although you can't stop your oil glands from producing oil, there are ways to control excess oil.
- Add a Toner to extract and gently peel away/ remove dead skin cells, excess oil, make-up debris, and free radical pollution.
- Use a lighter moisturizer that works from the inside out. Powerful peptides harnessed from non-embryonic human stem cells work to lift skin, tightening and firming. Plant extracts, enhanced by science, work in concert to help diminish lines, reduce wrinkles, prevent dehydration, and replenish soothing moisture.
- Use an oil-free sunscreen daily of at least SPF 15
- Shower after you work out or sweat
Is it necessary to use a specific cream after being out in the sun?
After sun exposure it is always important to moisturize the skin with a product that has multiple functions. Lifeline ProPlus Advanced Recovery Complex contains peptides from stem cells that support collagen and elastin production, while utilizing B complex nutrients and antioxidants to support healthy cell metabolism and minimize free radical damage that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Peptides and antioxidants work with the body’s natural healing cycle to help strengthen the moisture barrier for a softer, smoother and younger looking skin. This product will help to restore and repair all skin concerns from dry and dehydrated to sensitive and sensitized.
Another best way to avoid summer skin trouble? Block harmful rays when you're out during the day; even during cloudy days use sun protection. Sun rays can penetrate light clouds, mist, and fog. The danger exists in all seasons, and the damage builds up each year.
