Get Your Glow Back: The Best Treatments to Revive and Repair Summer-Ravaged Skin
Who doesn’t love summer? The warm sunshine, a dip in the pool, iced tea in hand, the pure fun under the sun—it’s arguably the best season. But just because we love it doesn’t mean our skin does too. In fact, the summer season can cause some damage to our skin.
Don’t worry, though. Your skin doesn’t have to miss out on the summer fun this time. We’ve compiled the best skin and body treatments for you to get your glow back.
What Damage Can Summer Do to My Skin?
We’ve heard about sweat clogging our pores, but there are a handful of other skin issues we need to watch out for. Too much sun exposure can lead to early signs of ageing and UV dangers. Others have also experienced sun spots, skin discolouration, fine lines, and wrinkles. Here are other ways the summer heat can damage your skin:
- Oily skin
With the sebaceous glands becoming more active in hot weather, high heat and humidity can make the skin oilier.
- More active swear glands
Summer can result in excessive sweating. Additionally, sweating more mixed with bacteria and friction from clothing can lead to breakouts.
- Eczema flare-ups
Summer’s hot temperature can aggravate eczema as it can trigger itchy and prickly feelings. Additionally, the heart can trigger increased skin irritation and redness.
What Can I Do to Repair My Skin?
The treatment you should go for depends on the condition that your skin has gone through. Be sure to also consult with your dermatologist before you undergo any major procedures.
- Chemical Peel and Microdermabrasion for Sun Damage
A chemical peel procedure is when a chemical solution is applied to your skin, removing the top layer and allowing smoother skin to appear. On the other hand, microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses an applicator with an abrasive surface. This sands away the thick outer layer of your skin.
While it’s not advisable to go for these procedures during summer, a chemical peel or microdermabrasion is a good idea after. Feel free to choose between microdermabrasion, a glycolic acid peel, or a salicylic acid peel.
After your facial peel, give further TLC to your skin by applying a detoxification mask.
- De-Ageing Body Treatment and Skin Joy Night Repair Serum for Premature Ageing
It’s no secret that the sun can prematurely age our skin. Dermatologists refer to this kind of sun damage by various names: photodamage, photoaging, or solar damage. When ultraviolet light hits our skin, especially when it doesn’t have sunscreen, there could be DNA changes at a cellular level.
For premature ageing, we recommend anti-ageing skincare products such as the Mayerling De-Ageing Body Treatment. It has the necessary ingredients to help reverse the effects of skin ageing. Glycolic acid helps plump the skin, while retinyl palmitate and bearberry extract help in reducing pigmentation and rejuvenating the skin.
We also recommend the Skin Joy Night Repair Serum, which is easily absorbed by the skin. It can help undo, reverse, and protect against free radical damage and premature ageing.
Remember, don’t make the mistake of only applying sunscreen on your face. This may lead to some sunspots on your chest, arms, and other body parts. Other parts of your body, specifically your chest, neck, and hands, get their share of UV exposure too, so never skip body lotion.
- Adec Vitamin Facial Moisturiser for Dry Skin
As you already know, when our skin is exposed to UV rays, especially when it’s not protected, it can get damaged. This leads to dryness and skin pigmentation. Mayerling skincare products such as the Adec Vitamin Facial Moisturiser can help in rehydrating your skin.
It provides time-released moisture that can smoothen and nourish the skin’s appearance, giving it a radiant finish. We suggest using it under Day or Night Creams for extra moisture and hydration.
- Bonus: Drink lots of fluid
Yep, it’s not just to quench your thirst. Making sure that you keep hydrated keeps the skin from being dehydrated. It replenishes lost hydration from sweating and prevents dry skin manifested through cracks and patches.
As much as we love summer, we also love healthy skin. Bring back your glow with these treatments and products, and you’ll be ready for the fall season in no time. Get the best anti-ageing products and treatments at Bliss Skin Care to make your summer even more memorable!
