Summer Skin Care Tips

sun protectionAs we enter July and the weather forecasts promise sun on the way just in time for the summer holidays, it’s time to review your skincare regime.

While we all love the feel of a bit of sunshine and the look of a healthy glow of tan, the sun is the number one enemy of those that want to retain young looking skin for as long as possible.

Top Tips for DIY Summer Skincare

  1. SPF! Use a high protection sun screen every day. Protecting against the sun’s UVA/UVB rays will help to delay the signs of ageing that can appear early with sun damage
  2. Drink plenty. Keeping hydrated has a big impact on the skin, but avoid too many fizzy drink or tea/coffee – water is the purest drink
  3. Cleanse. As you are probably perspiring slightly more or spending longer outdoors, ensure that skin is kept clean with a good quality gentle cleanser to remove grime that can block pores
  4. Moisturise. A good moisturiser day and night will help to protect and nourish the skin

Cosmetic Treatments

A professional cosmetic treatment can help skin look fresher and younger. Here are our top picks for the summer:

  • Quinntessential medical facial, which combines peels and microdermabrasion for a relaxing, gentle yet effective exfoliation and skin conditioning
  • Sun damage treatment, don’t ignore pigmentation, rough skin or premature lines and wrinkles. The skin can be improved dramatically by treatments that boost renewal of skin cells and collagen production. Dermaroller microneedling or facial peels can be very useful
  • Laser technology such as the CO2 fractional laser or IPL laser are very effective in tackling signs of sun damage
  • Pelleve radio frequency treatment also works to promote skin renewal, for a soft dewy skin
