6 tips to protect your skin during summer

Summer is coming, can you feel it?! The days are getting longer, dinner has been consumed al fresco & everyone is getting their (spray) tan on! Who doesn’t love summer, eh? However, with all the ice-creams, sunshine & outdoor movie nights, its easy to neglect our skin during the summer months. Summer calls for special attention to your skin, to keep it looking glowing, fresh & healthy. Here are 6 tips:

Apply sun-cream religiously
An obvious tip, but many people forget to apply sun-cream throughout the day. Make sure you still apply it on cloudy days too, as there are still UV rays in the atmosphere, even if the sun is nowhere to be seen. The Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster (SPF 50) & Guinot Crème Solaire Hydratante (SPF 20) are our favourites so pick them up when you next come and see us.

…and moisturiser
Your skin goes through a lot in the summer sun – heat, humidity, air conditioning, so make sure you protect it with a light moisturiser, that doesn’t make your skin feel heavy and oily but still keeps it healthy. A great summer product is the Dermalogica Active Moist as its lightweight and oil-free but still hydrates the skin without making it greasy.

Skip the sun-bed & have a spray tan with us
It’s no secret that sun-beds are harmful and dangerous as they give out UV rays that damage your skin, make it look wrinkled, leathery and older and also cause skin cancer. Instead, why not have a St Tropez spray tan with us, to give you that gorgeous summer glow but also protect your skin!

Don’t forget to protect your eyes & lips
Harmful sun-rays affects your delicate skin the most, so make sure to protect your lips with an SPF lib balm and use the Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair around your eyes.

Drink water
Keep hydrated throughout the day and try to take a bottle of water with so you can take small sips to prevent dehydration and heat stroke.

Exfoliate at least once or twice a week to help shed dead skin build up and slough off previous sun damage. Exfoliating helps to rejuvenate your skin and leaves it soft and brighter.
