As summer approaches, as well as sorting out your vest tops and flip-flops, this also the ideal time to reassess your beauty regime.
Yes, you can keep your smoky eyes, nude lips and dry shampoo in the bathroom cabinet, but as the sun rises high and the pollution levels increase, it is worth taking note of what you put on your skin and how you look after it.
Dermalogica offer a fantastic range of products for all year round skin care and some really come into their own as the temperatures rise and bare shoulders come out.
First things first and you need to start and end the day with totally clean, clear skin and for this we recommend the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. Perfect for all skin types, this is a soap-free, foaming gel that removes impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. Used morning and night, natural Quillaja Saponaria gently foams away toxins and deep-cleanses debris while calming agents purify and sooth the skin.
With your skin clean, using a toner won’t dry it out (as many people think) but instead offer additional hydration. Perfect for the summer, Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist improves skin texture as well as bringing dry, dehydrated skin back to life. White Tea, Licorice and Vitamin E fight damaging free radicals and rose and clove extracts comfort and refresh skin. You can use this morning and night, and can apply anytime of the day for added benefits.
You have a great base, so next up is to moisturise and in the summer you need UV protection that really works. We love Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 because not only does it keep skin hydrated but keeps it safe thanks to an added SPF30. A clever, patented polypeptide has been blended with Glucosamine and Soy which stimulates the production of collagen and helps prevent ageing. White Tea, Vitamin C, Yeast Extract and Phytoestrogens have all been added into the mix so you have a cream that leaves you with incredibly soft, non-sticky skin that is safe from the sun and the perfect base for make-up.
Speaking of make-up, over the warmer summer months, it can be great to let your skin breath and switching from a heady foundation to something more lightweight can be the perfect answer. The Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20 is a beautiful lightly-tinted product that gives you just right amount of colour for summer. Light-diffusing iron oxides provide translucent colour and broad spectrum sunscreen offers added protection against UV rays. Hydrolyzed Pearl amino acids, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and Walnut Seed extracts all help improve the texture of your skin as well as easing fine lines. This product comes in light, medium and dark and because it is fragrance free, it is perfect for all skin types.
If you feel like your skin needs an added boost you can bring a masque into the mix. New to the Dermalofica family of products, is the Charcoal Rescue Masque. This lush all-in-one treatment detoxifies, brightens and invigorates tired, lacklustre and dull skin, leaving you with a soft, dewy complexion.
If your skin still feels parched, we recommend trying the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster. This super-saturated fluid revitalises parched skin and minimises fine lines thanks to a blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and Algae Extract.
