Although you might be hoping to rock a killer tan and look all golden and beachy this summer, the reality is your skin might be desperately crying out for help once the seasons change. We’ve got some simple solutions to help you revive your skin from its dry, flaky and damaged condition that will make your skin feel as good as new.
Problem: Dry Skin
To rid your skin of its flaky surface, gentle exfoliation is key. Opt for a soft scrub like that will remove old cells without harming new ones that are developing. Avoid harsh scrubs that can abrade your skin even more and add to the damage. A word of warning: While you may instinctively opt for a peel to rid your skin’s surface of its summer damage, we recommend you keep them away from your face. Instead, opt for an option that’s a bit gentler like the L’Oréal Paris Pure Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub or the Skinceuticals Micro Exfoliating Scrub.
The sun has a way of zapping essential moisture from our bodies, and it’s important to recharge with a hydrating solution in the form of a moisturizer or serum. But don't just slap any old cream on your delicate skin, especially if you’re suffering from a sunburn that has left your face irritated and inflamed. Go for a product that will regenerate cells, replenish moisture, calm and rebalance your skin, we love the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition or the Skinceuticals Epidermal Repair for this.
Solution: Color CorrectionIf time in the sun has caused hyperpigmentation (patches of skin darkening), try a brightening serum to even out your skin tone. It might take some time for the skin to even out, but the wait is worth it and the La Roche-Posay Dark Spot Correcting Serum or the Skinceuticals Advanced Pigment Corrector can help you get there.
Problem: Unwanted Rays
It’s important to keep your skin protected from further damage all year long, rain or shine. Keep a strong SPF handy and apply to your lovely face at least twice a day like the Kiehl's Super Fluid Daily UV Defense or the Lancôme Bienfait UV SPF 50+.We guarantee that these will help your skin feel healthy and safe from unwanted rays.
