Summer is setting in, which is evident with the late sun sets and rising temperatures. As exciting as this may be, maintaining the perfect Summer skin care regime may seem daunting.
As your skin starts to get more sun (which is great for all those selfies you will be taking), your skins molecular functioning will change drastically too. Evolve Day Spa shares some tips on how to take care of your skin by following the best skin regime for the hot, sunny months ahead.
During the hot, Summer months your skin may experience more oil than what it would in the cooler Winter months. You may find that you perspire more than usual, which is why it is important to cleanse your face twice a day. According to experts, the best way to keep your skin matte, yet moisturised is to cleanse twice daily with a foaming or gel-based face wash. First thing in the morning, to wash away the oil and perspiration that accumulates overnight, and then before bed, after thoroughly removing your makeup.
Regular exfoliation enhances the removal of dry or dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin and is therefore one of the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy skin care routine. Exfoliation not only helps increase blood circulation in the face and body, but also helps to achieve a healthy glowing skin. Evolve Day Spa recommends visiting one of their branches to receive one of their fantastic exfoliation treatments such as the ZO Exfoliation Polish, valued at R1490.00. Some of the great benefits include; Magnesium crystals which provides impressive exfoliation benefits, the treatment instantly polishes skin to restore smoother texture and healthy glow and removes dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores.
Importance of SPF
Not only can UV rays accelerate skin ageing factors such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin but is harmful to your skin at any time of the year, even more so in the Summer months when our exposure levels are higher. Evolve Day Spa suggests incorporating your sun block cream as part of your daily ritual. A minimum of SPF 30 should be used daily and on days where you spend most days in the sun, a SPF 50 should be used, and constant re-application is a MUST. Evolve Day Spa recommends Lamelle’s Helase (retail cost R500.00) SPF 50.
Drink lots of water
It is important to drink 6 – 8 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration. Not only is it necessary for your overall health but it also plays a vital role for your digestion and circulation as well as maintaining your skin’s health and beauty.
