Heat, Sun & Air Conditioning Skin Damage - there's help.

Heat

Hot weather increases water loss from the body, leading to dehydration. This can cause skin to feel irritated, red and dry, so make sure to hydrate your skin and keep water levels topped up. Summer heat tends to mean more sweat, more oil and speedier skin cell production too. When dead skin cells mix with this excess oil and sweat, it’s hello, acne breakout. Outsmart summer skin sensitivity and switch to a summer skincare routine at the start of the season.

Sun

We know too much sun can damage your skin’s moisture barrier, leading to lost elasticity, dryness and even premature aging. It doesn't have to feel hot for your skin to feel the sun’s damaging effects: rays can reach through glass, so don’t forget the SPF when you've on your road trip. Spending summer by the lake? Water can mean double-trouble for skin, bouncing UV rays onto your skin twice, so keep slapping on that SPF! Lastly, don’t save the SPF for hotter moments. Slot one into your everyday routine (and reapply regularly too!) to stay sun savvy.

Time Saver for you this summer: Are you sick of shaving, don't have the time to shave as often or suffering from skin irritations caused by shaving? Well, maybe it is time you try waxing! Waxing removes hair in a way no other non-permanent method can. It leaves the skin clear of stubble and re-growth for weeks at a time, which can be more comfortable as well. Hair that waxing removes won't start to grow back for several weeks. Whether cold or hot, wax removes hair so well and keeps it from growing back quickly because it actually pulls hair from the shaft where it grows. And it doesn't just take out hair one at a time.
