Let your skin breathe in the summer sun

Layering on heavy foundation, concealer and powder in the hot summer sun is nobody’s idea of fun, and not only is it likely to slide off and feel greasy after a ridiculously short time, it’s also not the best for your skin.

Wearing lots of makeup in hot weather could lead to your pores becoming blocked- which could leave you with less than clear-looking skin. This could turn into a vicious cycle, and worrying about the state of your skin is certainly no way to spend your summer.

During the summer months, it’s always good to try and give your skin a little extra breathing space, and it is likely to look and feel much better for it.

Cleansing, toning and moisturising morning and night is essential for keeping your skin in the best condition possible, although there are many other products which you can use to give your skin- and your confidence- a little extra boost.

Give your pores a deep cleanse with a fantastic Dermalogica Masque, or opt for one of their great exfoliants for a smooth, bright complexion.

If you really can’t do without a base, try using a light tinted moisturiser in place of your usual foundation, and give your pores a real chance to breathe.

Solar Defence System

Controlling excessive oil control in the summer sun

With the sun now shining brightly on a more regular basis, it finally looks as though the good old British summer is here! Although you can never guarantee how long the sun is intending to stick around for, temperatures are certainly much warmer than they were a few months ago during the ridiculously long winter.

However, although you can always guarantee on the sun to raise spirits, its appearance isn’t always appreciated by those who suffer with oily skin.

Those with oily skin know just how difficult it is to keep shine at bay at the best of times, so when the sun is shining and the temperatures are soaring, you can only begin to imagine just how much excessive oil can potentially make an appearance.

Luckily, with a little help from Dermalogica, keeping shine under control doesn’t have to be tediously time consuming, and by using a couple of key products you can keep your skin looking magnificently matte all day long.

Dermalogica Oil Free Matte Block is perfect for use during the summer months, and not only does it keep shine at bay, it also contains an SPF 20, so the negative effects of the sun’s rays are reduced even further.

Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion is another very popular product, and it’s great for those cooler days spent indoors.

Have faith in Dermalogica, enjoy the sun and feel confident in your skin.

Is your cleanser working effectively?

As far as your skin care regime is concerned, the cleanser that you use is one of the most important aspects in ensuring that your skin looks as good as possible. Men and women alike need to make sure that they’re using a good cleanser, as day to day dirt and excess oil can quickly build up. If your cleanser fails to serve you properly, you may find yourself falling victim to regular spots or blemishes- which are unwelcome additions whichever way you choose to look at it!

For women who wear make up, using a cleanser which can get rid of every last trace is even more important. Otherwise, you could find yourself applying even more makeup to cover up any skin imperfections.

If you feel that you’re cleansing properly morning and night, yet are still finding that blemishes are appearing, it could be that your cleanser isn’t working hard enough and you need to start looking for one that offers better results.

In addition to this, if your skin feels tight and dry after cleansing, the cleanser that you’re using may be too harsh for your skin type. Although it’s vital that skin is cleansed properly this doesn’t mean dehydrating it altogether.

Dermalogica have a great line of cleansers, which are tailored to suit different skin types and provide deep and effective cleansing without making any compromises.

Get your skin on the road to recovery

Many things can lead to the appearance of less than healthy looking skin- including poor diet, ill health, climate, stress and general skin neglect.

As your skin is one of the first things that people notice about you, it’s little wonder that if you feel that your skin is looking less than its best, it can make a dent in your confidence.

Determining and following a good skin care regime that meets your personal requirements is vital, and will keep your skin in the best condition possible for as long as possible. Even if you’re still in your early twenties, it’s still important to think about combating the premature signs of aging, and the skin care regime that you follow now will have a big impact on how your skin looks in years to come.

If you feel that you need to take action against the state of your skin, there’s no time like the present to get started. Before you start your skin rescue mission though, it’s important to determine whether there are any underlying causes that could be contributing to the condition of your skin. Combined with the right products, this will have a sizeable effect on its recovery.

A fab product to kick start your skin salvation is Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery. This moisturiser is great for dry and prematurely ageing skin, and really does help to restore that all important hydration. As it can be used on a daily basis, you’re provided with lasting protection to guard against future skin spoilers.

Give your skin a fresh lease of life and restore your skin self confidence.
