Seasonal Skin

As we drift in to the end of summer, gone are the breezy sunny days of mid-summer and in its place is hazy and humid February and March. It is no myth that the skin (much like the leaves on a tree) changes with each season. If you are noticing that you skin is going through a period of problematic change, here’s why -   Humid days play havoc with your skin as perspiration remains on the surface rather than evaporating.  This spells double trouble for your skin because of: 1. Excess oils and moisture on the surface can actual magnify the sun’s harmful rays, causing sun damage and premature aging. This can lead to dryness, flakiness and sensitivity. 2. Perspiration on the surface mixes with bacteria and natural oils to form a layer of biofilm. This can lead to excess shine, black heads and spots particularly on a break out prone skin.   So what are the best ways to combat the humidity and keep your happy, natural skin glow?  

  • Remove all the grime and oil from  the surface of the skin with a good quality cleanser.  Skinstitut’s Gentle Cleanser is rich in antioxidants and is perfect for sensitive skin. It is also the perfect choice to gently remove make – up, even around the delicate eye area.
  • If you suffer from acne or excess oiliness try a Lactic or Glycolic Cleanser to aid decongesting the blocked follicles.
  • Use a light weight, nourishing vitamin, mineral and peptide based serum to replenish and rejuvenate a stressed out skin. What to use? Well Skinstitut’s Rejuvenate 15 of course!
  • Protect yourself with a good quality, non-oily SPF 50 in the day time to shield your skin from UV damage, pigmentation and premature aging.
  • Use a restorative leave on treatment at night to gently soothe, smooth and refine the skin. Try Skinstitut’s Enzymatic Micro Peel, a perfect combination of papaya enzymes, anti -oxidants and vitamin B3 to treat redness, uneven skin texture, sun damage and congestion.

  So it is true. The skin really does change with different seasons. By simply adjusting your skincare regime to suit your skins response to a fluctuating climate, you can wave  a fond farewell to summer with a radiant healthy glow.   MMx
