It’s quite refreshing coming back to work having had an amazing Summer holiday.. While we’re still clutching at the renewed form of energy and rejuvenated appetence to resume what’s on our agendas, we tend to look forward to routine and settle accordingly. However, one look in the mirror, and reality hits. Something is disrupting this new found recovery and balance and our skin start telling a different story…
Now that the first tan has disappeared, we are left with the aftermath of sun exposure. Those numerous sun bathes, chlorine, wind and air conditions resulted in skin looking pale, dull and stressed. Despite the fact that you might have been very adamant at super caring and protecting your face, or not, you will notice that your body skin has suffered and thickened as well, callused and in bad need for some TLC.
Well, today I will be suggesting a very helpful routine that will bring your skin back to its moisturized and optimal condition. Whether its dryness, flakiness, pigmentation or dullness, this plan will reverse any damage you’ve been exposed to and rejuvenate your skin..
1 || Peel That Dull Mask
For starters, and in hopes of reaching into the deeper layer of the skin, it makes total sense to gently peel off the dead skin layer that has built up. By using a gentle peel on a daily basis which contains glycolic acid, dead skin cells will start shedding only to reveal the new, more youthful skin underneath.. My top recommendations would be the following..
2 || Nourish and Prevent
Now that you are applying AHA’s on a nightly basis, your skin is ready to absorb in the potency of vitamin C. Renown for its anti oxidative properties, applying a vitamin C infused cream or serum every morning before your preferred sunblock will maximize your recovery process.
My favorite vitamin C products and supplements are the following…
3 || Prevent
An extra strength and intense age defying cream or tonic will improve the appearance of skin texture and reduce the signs of aging. Loss of tone, wrinkles and fine lines will diminish upon incorporating the following creams into your nightly routine. Retinol being the targeted ingredient, below are my favorites..
4 || Control Pigmentation
By applying anti pigmentation creams, you will be targeting dark spots, uneven skin tone and hyper pigmentation. With their stimulating powers, those creams I chose promote skin radiance, harmonize the skin complexion and regulate the production of melanin.. As there exists no magical potions that completely annihilate pigmentation, these options control and highly inhibit their appearance..
