A summer skincare routine is hard to perfect; the long hot days mingled with the muggy, humid weather we sometimes encounter can play havoc with our skin. Taking care of our complexions during the summer months can prevent the disastrous effects of dry, stressed, and damaged skin. The best products to use throughout these months are hydrating, protective, and gentle; providing a soothing, regenerating routine that can transform stressed skin into a glowing complexion. The following five skincare saviours will keep you feeling fresh all summer long.
Ideal for delicate skin types, the gel make-up remover by La Roche-Posay is a cooling gel cleanser that will calm the complexion and reduce redness. The micellar formula removes make-up without requiring cotton pads or excessive rubbing on the skin, which can cause irritation and dryness. With a rich infusion of spring water, this unique product will soothe, hydrate, and treat your skin with care leaving your complexion feeling fresh and revived after a long hot day in the sun.
Our skin often needs a helping hand to stay hydrated, the La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum is a replenishing, concentrated gel formulated especially for dehydrated and sensitive skin. Applied after cleansing and before the application of a moisturiser, this intense serum will reduce skin tightness, smooth dehydration lines and provide intense, long-lasting 24-hour hydration. The formula contains thermal spring water, which has soothing and anti-irritating properties combined with hyaluronic acid fragments, which provides deep hydration.
Exposing our skin to the sun can cause damage and rapidly increase signs of aging if we're not careful to treat our complexions appropriately.
