With the summer fast approaching, many people are looking at skincare regimes and must-have summer essentials that deliver maximum results and leave your skin feeling radiant and sun-kissed.
Looking after the skin from the inside is just as important with fresh salads and juices as nourishment. As the temperature rises, start your skincare and body care regimes to replenish and rehydrate your skin all summer long and get the best treatments to optimise the condition of your skin for the summer. Below are some tips:
Scrub: For a radiant glow, after a gentle scrub and wash, put some milk on your face for 10 minutes. If you skin is oily, a natural remedy like rose water is better than milk. It is essential to use sun protection and then moisturize after the scrub.
Hydration: The hydra facials gently cleanses, hydrates and exfoliates the skin, removes impurities and toxins, leaving it fresh, moisturised and healthy. For best results, one must drink at least 1.5 litres of water as skin needs hydration or fresh juices from inside as well.
Get youthful: Try the new innovative and powerful LPG Skin Rejuvenation program, which combines the proven efficiency of new Endermolift with a superficial peel skin care line. It treats the skin surface for supple, glowing, youthful and rejuvenated skin.
Firm up: To correct sagging and loose skin, especially along the jaw line, chin, abdomen and upper arm, get treatments that stimulate new collagen production and leads improvements in lax skin, lines and wrinkles. It is best to shop around for the treatment that suits you best. My favourite is the hypoxy treatments that I do at Body Smart.
Anti-ageing: we can’t run away from the aging process but we can slow it down. My favourite remedy for this is the anti-aging technologies by LPG, which is one of the most effective ways to restore and renew skin cells and improve skin texture.
Treat pigmentation: The Deep cleansing facial or facial peels are effective in targeting dark brown spots on any part of the face, neck and décolleté. They can be done in most salons in the region. It improves skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and sun damage.
Nutrition: Light meals and snacks are best in the summer. Salads and fruits like watermelon that has lots of water can do wonders for the skin. Lighter meals are also great for the body when preparing to approach the mid summer holidays – think holidays on the beach as a motivation.
As long as we stay with the basics like drinking lots of water, regular facials and treatments, sun protection and hydration, we should be able to enjoy the summer without worrying about skin damage it can cause.
