Tips for Young, Fresh and Glowing Summer Skin
Here are 5 tips to keep your skin young, fresh, and glowing throughout the Dog Days of Summer.
Start your day with the sun-kissed Look
A little tint in your sunscreen can take years off your face by evening out your skin tone. We love iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50 for broad spectrum protection, it even comes in PerfectTint Brown – perfect for that sun kissed look
Remember, sunscreen stops working in less than 3 hours so reapplication is key. For easy touch-ups, try POWDER-ME SPF® DRY SUNSCREEN from Jane Iredale… This chemical-free broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen for body, face and scalp is water-resistant.
Spritz away dryness
An occasional misting will assist in elevating your skins moisture levels. We love iS Clinical’s Copper Mist as it’s great for regulating sebum production and assisting collagen growth. Just keep one in your bag so you can reapply throughout the day as needed.
High levels of tension can spike hormone production that leads to breakouts or aggravates conditions like psoriasis. Finding a way to control your stress keeps your skin calm. Try taking a 10-minute time-out to apply a face mask and relax – we have a lot of great options. Or better yet, make an appointment for a facial with one of our aestheticians and put yourself first for an hour or so.
Wash off your makeup before bed
Did you know that sleeping with your makeup on means all the free radicals that accumulate on the skin throughout the day linger all night? Doing this regularly can prematurely age the skin by encouraging the breakdown of collagen.
Get lots of rest
Sleep is nature’s most powerful beauty treatment because Skin makes new collagen when you sleep, which prevents sagging. The optimal seven to nine hours a night is key… Only getting 5 hours a night can lead to twice as many fine lines as sleeping 7 would. It also leaves skin drier, which can make lines more visible
