NEED TO GET YOUR SKINCARE IN CHECK FOR SUMMER?

here’s everything you need-to-know before the hot weather is upon us
By bM ‘skincare expert’ Emma Hobson


* Thorough cleansing is really important in summer; it removes the sunscreens off the skin as well as the sweat, dirt and debris. Don’t forget to cleanse down the neck, into the hairline and around the ears to prevent congestion forming.

* Beat dehydration by simply topping up the skin’s moisture levels with hydrating products that contain Hyaluronic Acid, a great ingredient that can hold a 1,000 times its own weight in moisture. Then seal the moisture with a moisturiser that also repairs the skin’s natural barrier.

* Carry a travel size spritz toner in your handbag and give your skin a spray every hour or so. Try Dermalogica’s UltraCalming Mist!

* Change your weekly body exfoliation to a daily body buffing session in the shower, this will keep the skin soft and silky smooth.

* For your face, try using a microfoliation product each day, it will polish the skin and remove any dirt or debris without causing increased sensitivity.

* Since you can experience more congestion and breakouts in summer, use your clay based cleanser (for oily skin) as a mini masque by leaving it on for 5 minutes. This will draw out the impurities and absorb excess oil, alternatively use a refining masque, 2-3 times per week.
