Confused about where to start with your summer skin regime?

Even though we’re now slap-bang in the middle of summer, there are still some individuals who have yet to sort out their summer skin care regime, and for those who are guilty of this it’s important that it is addressed as soon as possible.

There are several reasons why some people are still solely using the same skin products which they use all year round- from lack of time to confusion- and as there are so many different sun protection products on the market nowadays, it certainly isn’t difficult to get confused.

Although it’s important to keep skin protected from the sun’s harmful rays whatever time of year it is, it’s even more important during the summer months, as skin is far more likely to burn.

Addressing your summer skin care situation doesn’t mean that you have to throw out all of your old products though- you should simply tailor your regime to suit different scenarios.

When you’re out and about in the summer sun- whether sunbathing or shopping- it’s vital to adequately protect exposed areas of the body. Failing to do so could result in long term skin damage (not to mention the potential health implications).

Dermalogica’s fantastic Solar Defence System range offers a number of quality, effective products for the face and body- which are great for different skin types.

If you want to try out a range of the products in order to determine which best suit your needs, invest in the Dermalogica Daylight Defence Kit, which contains Dermalogica After Sun Repair, Dermalogica Multivitamin Bodyblock, Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster and Dermalogica Solar Shield- and start protecting your skin before it’s too late.

Relax whilst refreshing skin with Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque

There’s nothing quite like enjoying a relaxing night in front of the television after a long day in the office, and a facial masque is the perfect way to enhance that big box of chocolates and drama box set.

Facial masques have been used as a form of relaxation for many years now, and the fab masque’s available today really can work wonders when it comes to offering skin benefits.

Those with troublesome skin often shy away from using masque’s, as many believe that they may irritate the skin and make its’ condition worse. Whilst this may be true for cheaper masques, it certainly not the case when it comes to Dermalogica products- which have been specially formulated to tackle a range of different skin types.

Those whose skin is susceptible to regular breakouts can really benefit from the use of the Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque, as it makes a fantastic addition to the skin care regime.

This masque provides an extremely deep clean, and tackles a range of skin nasties which can contribute to breakouts- including excess surface oil. Cooling and soothing properties help to make skin feel in its most refreshed state ever.

Treating blemish prone skin has never been so relaxing…

Worrying about the sun shouldn’t get in the way of your fun

If your idea of fun in the sun is splashing about in the pool or partaking in some strenuous water sports rather than lying on a lounger sunbathing, your skin protection regime will need extra attention.

Standard sunscreens are great for when you’re just sat out in the sun, and some of the fantastic products which are available only need to be applied once a day. However, this doesn’t apply to you if you’re intending on coming into contact with water or exercising vigorously, as non-waterproof products won’t be 100% effective in these scenarios.

This doesn’t have to put a stop to any fun summer sports and activities though, as there are some very effective waterproof sunscreens available on the market nowadays- such as the Dermalogica Waterblock Solar Spray.

Dermalogica Waterblock Solar Spray is perfect for the more active individual, and it contains an SPF 30 which can maintain its effectiveness for up to 80 minutes after coming into contact with water.

This great spray is ideal for all skin types, and absorbs quickly and invisibly without leaving behind an annoying or pore-blocking sticky residue.

Arm yourself with Dermalogica Waterblock Solar Spray and enjoy all of your favourite summer sports and activities, as you never know when the typical British summer will return!

Follow in Freida Pinto’s footsteps and achieve an amazingly clear complexion

Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto has revealed how she achieves such stunning skin- and surprisingly, it doesn’t involve an airbrush or hours in the makeup artist’s chair!

Achieving skin as clear as Freida’s just requires a little time and effort- and thankfully you won’t need the bank balance of an A-lister either. Stunner Freida recently explained how plenty of water and fresh fruit and vegetable are key in keeping skin in tip-top condition, in addition to following a strict cleansing regime.

She revealed:

“I always wash my face before bed. I can’t sleep with make-up on, even just a little bit. I like my skin clean. I wear sunscreen every day, that’s my cardinal rule.”

If you want to follow in Freida’s footsteps and be the proud owner of the most amazing skin around, there are some great cleansing products around on the market today which are suitable for use morning and night.

Dermalogica’s line of cleansers is renowned for being the best in the business. So much so that many A-listers have revealed that Dermalogica products are a staple part of their skin care regime.

Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution and Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel are just two of the very popular products that are snapped up in their thousands every day.

Look as fantastic as Freida and make that little added effort in getting your skin looking gorgeous.
