Summer Skincare Essentials
The mercury is off the scale, the sun is blazing and we’re all making the most of the little summer we get. However, summer is a particularly testing time for your skin. Heat and humidity combine to send the sebaceous glands haywire, exacerbating existing skin ailments. Oily skin will appear even more oily, drier patches will show more acutely. Also, while the sun-kissed look of a fresh tan is something we all desire, the sun’s ageing and cancer-causing effects are often overlooked. Furthermore, heat causes pores to open. Open pores, perspiration and increased outdoor activities will cause pores to become clogged with bacteria. These bacteria are what cause acne, spots and outbreaks in the skin. At LPG Clinics Wholesale, we’re here to advise on summer skincare essentials, to help ensure you skin health.
Hydration is the key to good skin health. A good hydrating mask which you need to use a few times a week will do much to mitigate the harmful effects of the sun and heat. Face masks help to repair, rehydrate and soothe your skin. So, make sure you use this valuable tool during summer.
Antioxidant serums help provide hydration to your skin. They also offer added protection against the harmful effects of the sun and the heat. Furthermore, helping to boost the skin’s own collagen production, antioxidant serums will help control free radicals, preventing them from damaging your skin. Antioxidant rich foods, such as citrus fruits, leafy greens and nuts, added to your diet will also go a long way to helping protect your skin in the summer.
With the sun and heat battering down on your skin, exfoliation helps accelerate the natural process of the shedding of dead skin cells. Also, with debris and potentially bacteria clogging up your pores, exfoliation will help your skin breathe and give it a more radiant appearance.
