Summer for many of us means lounging on pool chairs, tanning on a beach, and days on end of fun under the sun.
Unfortunately, the warm and bright days (and toasty nights) can also mean excess humidity, sunburn and stressed skin. As we’re all focused on catching rays, it’s also important to protect ourselves with a simple skincare routine.
Here are six easy-to-implement summer skincare tips to follow:
1. Keep it fuss-free
Do you normally have an elaborate skincare regimen? Summer is the perfect time to simplify and bin (at least temporarily) some products from your routine. For instance, if you regularly use heavy oil and cream cleansers, opt for something gentle and foamy. Remember, if you don’t need that heavy winter coat, neither does your skin.
Give it a try: Soft and light, Physio Radiance Gentle Foaming Cleanser is designed to remove oil and other impurities while maintaining the skin’s hydrolipidic balance.
2. Don’t forget the sunscreen
Despite it being vital for the production of Vitamin D, the summer sun can also do serious UV damage to your skin as well as contribute to wrinkles and spots, and increase the risk of skin cancer. This is why you should always protect exposed areas of the body such as the ears, hands, neck and of course, face with sunscreen.
Give it a try: Any broad-spectrum sunblock with at least SPF 30. Also, consider Physio Radiance Firming & Lifting Double Serum to address hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone that comes with too much sun exposure.
3. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
The air may not be as dry in the summer as in the winter, but your skin still needs moisturising. Excess humidity means you should deal with the stress that sweat, oil and other pollutants can put on your skin and make sure it’s nourished, both during the day and at night.
Give it a try: Developed with all-day moisturisation in mind, Physio Radiance Restoring Day Cream and Physio Radiance Regenerating Night Cream work to hydrate and protect the skin from chemical and physical stressors while brightening, nourishing and restoring suppleness.
