As summer passes, the warmth and humidity in the air cause the skin's glands to produce excess oils. These oils stick to the surface of the skin, causing grease and blocked pores as a result of sweat. UV light causes the skin to produce melanin, a pigment that aims to protect your skin from sun damage. Often, this can result in darker, tanned skin, but most of the time this leads to sunburn, rashes and itchy skin. It is important to nourish and soothe the skin once summer has passed to ensure your skin is protected for the autumn and winter season. Here are some top tips to take care of your skin to ensure it is hydrated for the coming months.
1. Seek a good face wash to remove excess oils.
Arlene’s soothing face wash provides the perfect formula to purify your skin. It is important to use it in sweeping away any dry or dead skin cells. This will reveal a fresh layer of a healthier and glowing complexion. The face wash works well in removing traces of dirt and oil in the pores of the skin. This is essential during summer as the heat and physical environment means there is plenty of bacteria and pollutants which absorb under the surface of the skin. It is guaranteed that by using a good anti-pollution face wash, your skin will be revitalised after the summer months.
2. Wear sun cream every day
Despite the sun not being very visible in the autumn and winter months, sun damage is a year-round concern. Ultraviolet (UV) rays are an invisible form of radiation that can damage the skin even on cloudy or rainy days. Using a trusted SPF will ensure ultraviolet rays are blocked and scattered from being absorbed into the skin. It is important to follow these steps as it reduces the chances of sunburn and skin cancer.
3. Change your moisturiser
With winter approaching, you may want to consider using a thicker but no greasy moisturiser. The cold weather can often dry and crack the skin, making it flakier. Arlene’s renewing face cream works in correcting moisture levels and refreshing the skin’s appearance due to its high level of antioxidants. Its anti-ageing action is empower by the collagen and vit A in the formulation. Moisturising after you have washed your face is essential to ensure full hydration and smoothness of the skin’s texture.
4. Get a good eye mask
Wearing a silk eye mask when you sleep has many advantages for the skin. The refined silk material is known to soften the skin’s texture, preventing the exposure of wrinkles and puffiness. Silk contains natural amino acids to improve skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. It adds to your skincare routine because it contains moisturising properties which retain the smoothness and moisture in your skin.
5. Keep hydrated and drink plenty of water
The cold, crisp air often leaves our skin looking dry and tired. Drinking plenty of water will keep your skin looking hydrated and fresh all year round. It works in removing impurities from the body which are released via our pores. This includes blemishes, spots and rashes which often cause irritation or peeling. Keeping hydrated is essential in helping your digestive system flush out toxins from the body to improve overall health and skin complexion.
