Tips for The Perfect Summer Skin
Now the summer is officially here it's time to switch up your new skin care regime to suit the
new season. The usual holiday trend for minimalistic beauty calls for a flawless complexion.
Swap Out Heavy Creams
It is really the time to lighten up! The reality is that the extreme heat of summers makes our skin
dry and prone to damage and you need to make up for the moisture loss. But your heavy winter
lotions won't help. Trade richer moisturizers for featherlight lotions and gels to hydrate without
being occlusive and keep your skin moisturized.
Make SPF your BFF
The importance of sunscreen can not be stressed enough. With exposure to sun comes a variety of
problems that can only be tackled by protecting the skin from the sun.
Environ's RAD is an ultra-light version officially recognized by CANSA - it is suitable for all
skin types and ages including babies! Contains titanium oxide which reflects the sun's radiation and,
is safe and more effective than chemical absorption. Also contains most important antioxidants -
beta-carotene, Vitamin C and E.
Give Yourself a Vitamin C Boost
Vitamin C helps combat SPF rays adding an extra layer of protection to the skin as well as
create a brighter complexion and evens out skin tone while diminishing the appearance of fine lines.
After all, without layers of make-up to hide behind, your skin has to look lovely all on its own.
In addition to these, adequate sleep, exercise and a well-balanced diet work wonders for the skin.
Sleep refreshes the body and allows the skin to repair itself whereas while exercising, many toxins are
flushed out of the pores.
