Summer Skin the Sensio Spa way

We need to take care and treat our skin accordingly during the changing seasons. Now summer is upon us our skin is exposed to different elements and in order to not let them get the better of us, we need to take the necessary precautions and adapt our skincare routines accordingly.

The biggest threat to our skin during summer is of course, the sun! Probably 80% of our skin ageing is due to sun exposure…the sun's heat dries out areas of unprotected skin and depletes the skins supply of natural oils and collagen levels. Therefore, when our skin is exposed to the sun it develops wrinkles and fine lines because of dehydration and changes in collagen in the deeper layers of the dermis.  In addition, the sun's UV rays can cause burning and long term changes in the skins structure. So if the risk of skin cancer isn’t enough to persuade you to take preventative measures against the sun, maybe the effect it has on your skin might. You must wear a minimum of SPF 50 on your face; I suggest using a broad spectrum one that contains zinc and constant application is necessary, especially if you’re in and out of the sea.

After a week in the sun the skin generally feels dehydrated and needs a good exfoliating.  Even if you've taken the necessary precautions as advised you still need to give it a good cleanse, exfoliate and implement a ritual. The Sensio Spa Sonic Facial Cleanser is the ideal product to tackle all of your after sun problems! Not only will this product get rid of that excess dead skin, it will allow the new skin underneath to brighten as it regenerates. What’s really great about this product is the three interchangeable heads, if you have normal skin use the dermabrasion head when you get back from an extended period of sun exposure to really get a deep cleanse and exfoliation and to slough off all of the dead skin cells that make your skin look dull and old.  It is also really worth investing in a rich and nourishing moisturiser that you can put on after your cleanse to put back in the moisture you would have lost.

 

 

Another summer skin saboteur is air-conditioning. Air-conditioning is incredibly drying on our skin and also acts as an irritant, especially if you already suffer from skin conditions like eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. However, air-conditioning is unavoidable when the temperatures increase, therefore it is important to give our skin some extra therapy to avoid the negative effects it can have. Steaming is a wonderful way to rehydrate and soothe the skin. The Sensio Spa Complete Hydrotherapy Facial Steamer contains an ionised steamer, which means the steam particles are much finer– allowing them to better penetrate through into the skin to create excellent hydrating benefits and allow a much deeper cleansing and soothing process. If you make sure you follow the five step routine with this product; cleansing, opening the pores, steaming, closing the pores and moisturising, you won’t be able to see or feel the effects from those drying air-conditioning units.

If you follow my advice then you’ll be sure to have beautiful and glowing skin this summer. And remember- be kind to your skin!
