The skin and hair after the summer require special care and hydration.
Harmful exposure to sunlight, temperature changes and wind cause irritation, redness and an unpleasant feeling of skin tightening. The salty water in combination with sun rays that give our hair the beautiful summer look, might make a lot of damage too.
Now it's time to get back to routine and restore your skin and hair balance with few simple steps:
Focus on proper cleansing both your skin and hair.
We recommend a two-stage cleansing. First, remove make-up with a make-up remover, milk or micellar water. Then wash your face with a gel or foam dedicated to your skin type. Avoid using body soaps or gels as they can irritate the delicate skin of the face.
Wash your hair as often as needed using shampoos dedicated to your hair type. We recommend a stronger cleansing wash once a week between gentle, moisturising washes.
After thorough cleansing, it is worth treating the skin with a toner, mist or hydrolate. The choice is yours. They all provide a quick hit of hydration. It is a good prep for your pores, and a primer for the rest of your skincare routine.
Take care of proper hydration and nourishment of your skin and hair.
After proper preparation, we can start further care. Every skin needs hydration and nourishment. There is a huge amount of serums and creams available on the market, which should be selected to suit the needs of your skin. Always remember to keep your balance and not overload your skin.
When it comes to hair care, pay attention to maintaining the balance of PEH, i.e. Proteins, Emollients and Humectants. All three substances can be found in hair cosmetics or intermediates. Applied in the right amount and with the correct frequency, they keep the hair in perfect shape.
Remove dead epidermis regularly with peeling or gentle scrub.
Regular peeling can improve the skin’s colour, clarity, tone and texture. Enabling skincare products to be more effective because a peel can remove dead skin cells build-up and congestion, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Take care of yourself also from the inside and stick to a healthy diet and supplementation.
You are what you eat as they say. The foods you eat play a great role in the health of your skin, including in how your skin changes as you get older. A diet high in sugar and processed foods can lead to inflammation, acne breakouts, and premature aging of the skin. You should pay attention what ends up on your plate. Following a healthy, balanced diet helps make sure that our bodies get all the nutrients needed to work well and can also reduce the risk of diseases like heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer in the longer term. If our body get all nutrition it needs, it means our skin and hair get them too.
At last, but not least - drink plenty of water.Water keeps your body hydrated and refreshed and helps maintain your skin's elasticity. Intake of water helps maintain a healthy gut and aids in proper digestion. It also helps to remove toxins from your body.
If you have a little more time to devote to skincare, you can supplement the steps above with additional self-care treatments like face and hair masks, hair oiling etc.
