ADÉ TO DRY SKIN IN SUMMER!
Finally the time has come, summer is here! With the summer always comes a lot of fresh energy and a lot of good mood. But our skin is particularly stressed in the summer, we go swimming, enjoy the sun and are outside longer. For this reason, depending on the season, our skin always needs a certain, respectively adapted care. In the summer, the skin can occasionally dry out and become taut. Even if the glands produce more sebum, we still usually have to deal with dry skin. This is due to summer activities such as sunbathing, frequent showers, salt water or splashing around in the swimming pool: All of these deprive the skin of moisture.
The longer your skin is in the sun, the thicker its horny layer becomes. This is because UV-B rays accelerate cell division in the skin. More young skin cells are produced and the horny layer becomes thicker, a protective mechanism of the skin that ensures that sun rays cannot penetrate the skin as easily. However, this thicker skin layer also requires more care to keep it from drying out.
Are you also struggling with dry skin in summer? Then we will now tell you how you can quickly counteract this with small tips and tricks as well as effective little helpers from the bathroom, so that you and your skin can fully enjoy the summer.
TIP NO. 1: GIVE YOUR DRY SKIN ENOUGH MOISTURE.
In summer, dry skin needs one thing above all: moisture! And it's usually not found in rich creams, but in more liquid fluids, since they have a higher water content. The more water the facial care has, the lighter it feels. It is also easier to spread and absorbs more quickly.
Our "HYDRATION HYPE" moisturizing gel is particularly suitable for this purpose. The gel-like, fast-absorbing, light formula combined with aloe vera and niacinamide provides a real moisture boost on hot summer days.
TIP NO. 2: PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM AIR CONDITIONING.
Not only heaters in winter, but also air conditioners in summer can remove an enormous amount of moisture from your skin. If you can't avoid air conditioning, for example at work, you should take special care of your skin.
TIP NO. 3: USE A MOISTURIZING SERUM.
Use a moisturizing serum in addition to your daily moisturizer. The molecules in creams are usually so large that they cannot penetrate the skin. Instead, they coat the skin with a moisturizing layer that protects against external influences. Unlike the protective function of creams, serums serve a specific purpose: they are moisturizing, firming, brightening or much more. Serums are usually light fluids made of small molecular structures that can penetrate deep into the skin layers and work there. They also contain a more concentrated amount of active ingredients. Our "HAPPILY HYDRATED" serum with an effective triple hyaluronic acid combination is perfect for this. It replenishes your moisture depots, prevents the first signs of wrinkles and fine lines, and gives you a natural glow and new freshness. Thus, your skin is doubly nourished, your complexion looks fresher and you glow all day long from the inside out.
For particularly dry areas or after extensive sunbathing, an oil serum or coconut oil can also be dabbed onto the still damp face overnight or as needed after cleansing. The oil closes the moisture in the skin and also provides it with the valuable ingredients contained. Suitable serums here would be, for example, the "PERFECTION BOOST" serum or "THE YOUTH BOOST" serum with high-quality argan, grape seed, wild rose baobab, apricot, avocado and jojoba oil combined with selected active ingredients.
TIP NO. 4: NEVER FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN
It is important that you protect your dry skin daily with a sunscreen and a sun protection factor of at least 30 to keep it from drying out and to prevent sunburn and skin cancer. As summer temperatures rise and you spend more time outdoors, a single application of sunscreen is often not enough to effectively protect your skin from sun damage. To protect our skin from the long-term effects of UV rays, we should reapply it several times a day.
TIP NO. 5: CLEANSE YOUR FACE GENTLY
When cleansing your face every day, don't use dehydrating cleansing lotions, but those that provide your skin with an additional moisture boost. Our "FOAMY & FAMOUS" cleansing foam is particularly suitable for this. It reliably removes dirt and sebum from your skin and provides additional moisture. Its light, airy foam formulation makes it particularly pleasant to apply to the face in summer.
TIP NO. 6: DRINK ENOUGH WATER
Even in the summer months, it is particularly important to drink enough water. At least two liters a day, or three to four liters if you sweat a lot - that's the rule of thumb. Drinking in large quantities ensures the elasticity and suppleness of the skin and strengthens its resistance. It is also visually noticeable - well hydrated skin looks rosier and plumper!
TIP NO. 7: WATCH YOUR DIET.
Skin needs special care during the hot months, but proper nutrition is often overlooked - it can go a long way toward supporting skin health. Vitamins A, B and C are essential in the summer as natural sunscreens. Vitamin A is particularly important for cell division and ensures that new skin cells are replenished and skin damage is repaired. Likewise, B vitamins accelerate skin regeneration. In addition, vitamin C is mainly needed for the formation of collagen, which gives the skin its elasticity. A salad with lentils, quinoa or couscous together with sufficient summer vegetables and plenty of fresh fruit is perfect to meet this need!
