Prep and protect your skin for summer

10.07.23

Get your skin summer-ready and protect it from the number one cause of skin ageing: the sun. As summer is in full swing, it's time to achieve that healthy sun-kissed glow while being mindful of the harmful effects of sun exposure. While the sun may feel amazing on our faces, it can accelerate skin ageing, resulting in wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of premature ageing. This process is known as photo ageing, and research indicates that up to 90% of visible skin ageing is attributed to sun damage.

Embrace the sun-kissed look without compromising your skin's health with these helpful tips:

Consider incorporating supplements: Enhance your skin's resilience to UVA and UVB rays by taking supplements that contain beta-carotene, selenium, and vitamin E. These will help you tan more easily and protect against photo ageing.

Adjust your skincare routine: Minimise the use of active ingredients that can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid using retinol throughout the summer season and limit the use of AHA's for exfoliation. Instead, opt for a gentle physical exfoliator, like a scrub, to remove dead skin cells without fading your tan. Exfoliate only at night to allow your skin to recover and reduce sensitivity. Well-exfoliated skin tans more evenly and imparts a deeper glow.

Prep your skin for sun exposure: Boost your skin's resilience with a vitamin C serum that combats free radicals. Additionally, use a hydrating moisturiser or serum to keep your skin nourished and moisturised. Opt for lightweight textures to prevent greasiness, especially if you're applying moisturiser more frequently. A hydrating mist is a convenient way to refresh your skin throughout the day.

Apply sun protection: Start with a higher SPF, such as 50 or 30, and adjust accordingly based on your skin's response to the sun. Keep in mind that the intensity of the sun's rays varies depending on the country you're in.
