No matter what season it is, the weather seems to take a toll on our skin!
In winter, we’re battling cracked, itchy, dry skin, whereas in summer, we’re protecting it from harmful UV rays that could damage our skin and boost ageing. This, mixed with heat, sweat and sunburn, doesn’t require a total overhaul from your winter skin regime; the devil is in the detail with 4 key pieces to swap in for summer!
One of the most vital parts of summer skincare is the SPF. We would recommend wearing SPF all year round, but it is particularly important in summer as the sun’s harmful rays premature ageing, creating wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and of course increase the risk of serious illnesses like melanoma. This day moisturiser features SPF50+ which keeps your skin protected from UVA and UVB rays without the sticky feeling sun cream gives you! This moisturiser is suitable for all skin types, and keeps your skin firm, supple and soft.
As we mentioned, the sun can cause extra damage in the form of wrinkles, so if you have sun damage, the Lift XL is the perfect ‘cure’! This serum helps firm, tighten and lift the skin for four hours, perfect for evenings out or holiday snaps. We know, we thought this was too good to be true too, but the 5 star reviews say otherwise!
Temperature changes and heat cause our body to use up more water quickly, causing dehydration, new fine lines, and less of a gorgeous glow! Proto-col’s Miracle Balm intensly hydrates and soothes dry or damaged skin, and comes in a handy travel container perfect for lips. The hyaluronic acid adds an extra touch of intense hydration, whilst also repairing the skin at the same time.
If the sun is seriously affecting your fine lines and wrinkles, collagen is the answer! This targeted eye filler provides an instant plumping appearance with the hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and plant-based collagen. The 5 star reviews says this bargain gets to work instantly, and the vitamin E even helps to protect against environmental pollution!
