skin care after summer
Summer vacation is over and you feel totally recovered. Unfortunately, your image in the mirror tells a different story. The first tan has disappeared and numerous sunbaths, chlorine, wind and air conditions make your skin look pale and stressed. The callused skin has thickened due to the sun and a slight callus has built up. This is why the skin is rougher and flakier than usual and needs more moisture. In addition, free radicals generated by UV radiation have reduced collagen fibers, the support tissue of our skin. Especially during the summer months, many people also complain of small brown pigment spots that look like freckles caused by UV radiation.
The right aftercare for summer skin
Generally, your skin should not be neglected at any time of the year. However, it's particularly important to take care of your skin after the summer and annual beach vacations. Take this opportunity to have a professional beauty treatment at your beautician.
Peels restore radiance to the skin
A peel, whether performed by a beautician or at home, stimulates blood flow and therefore skin regeneration. Afterwards, the skin is very receptive and the ingredients can better penetrate the skin. A high moisture supply is now very important. Products with moisturizing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, allantoin, and alginates are perfect. So-called hydration boosters are ideal for a quick care effect: highly concentrated serums or ampoules.
Treat your skin with a moisture treatment
Even if we don't realize it right away, our skin is constantly losing moisture during the hot, sun-intensive months. However, don't follow the "more is more" principle by using rich, greasy products. They often only work superficially and do not penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. You will first have the impression that your skin has been hydrated, but it will remove many ingredients with the next shower and therefore a sustainable effect cannot be guaranteed. Instead, look for products that bind and feed moisture. Healing treatments are highly recommended within these days in addition to daily care. For best results, it is recommended to apply an intensive moisturizing mask once a week.
Reduces hyperpigmentation successfully
To counteract pigment spots, called hyperpigmentation, you should use creams with brightening ingredients. Classic ingredients such as vitamin C, salicylic acid, arbutin, etc., as well as herbal complexes of olive leaf extracts, ascorbyl glycosides, and zinc PCA pursue these kinds of effects. It is very important to avoid light and use the care products permanently for at least 3 months. This is the only way the skin can perfectly recover and dismantle the excess melanin that causes hyperpigmentation.
