Cooling summer skin saviours

Beat the heat this summer with targeted actives and fresh, lightweight textures that keep your skin hydrated and cool.  Heat and humidity can wreak havoc with our skin causing dehydration which can lead to visible fine lines and wrinkles, another issue commonly found in the summer months is skin feeling overwhelmed and greasy.  Here we look at some of the most common summer skincare concerns with recommendations to keep your skin cool and fresh with a healthy glow this Summer.

How do I keep my skin hydrated without grease?

Change your richer formulas to lightweight, oil free textures that will keep your skin hydrated without an uncomfortable greasy residue which may cause congestion. Our SkinSense Hydranet range has fresh, cooling textures which use lamellar technology to slowly releases actives beneath the skins surface for longer-lasting superior results.

What are the key ingredients in the Hydranet range?

We particularly recommend SkinSense Hydranet formulas during the summer as they contain a carefully selected group of active complexes that work together in synergy to deliver immediate and long term hydration;

Hyalu-cage System® is a cage of Hylauronic Acid that forms an invisible net over the surface of the skin, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and reinforcing the skins natural barrier from external aggressors.

Fucagel® provides both short- and long-term hydration which peaks hours after application.

Hydro-gain™ derived from Barbary Fig Oil and Birch Bark extract is 100% natural and delivers long lasting hydration. The combination of both water and oil soluble ingredients reinforces the skins natural barrier at a cellular level.

Pollushield™ defends and protects the skin from environmental stresses and free radicals.  Pollushield is composed of polymers to provide powerful skin protection.

Which formula is your top Summer pick?

Hydrating Collagen Gel is the perfect summer skin S.O.S. quenching dry, thirsty skin with intense hydration that is touch dry within seconds. This cooling gel forms a protective barrier to reduce trans-epidermal water loss and is infused with vegan friendly acacia collagen to plump the skins surface and an active complex blend of reishi, shitake and maitake mushroom extracts to calm irritation.  Suitable for the face and body, this essential summer moisturiser can be used on the face and body.  Keep this hero in the fridge for added cooling benefits and to reduce excess puffiness.

What can I do for stressed summer skin?

Treat your skin to our Hydranet Energising Face Mask once or twice a week to replenish lost moisture and nourish your skin. Created especially for skin suffering from extreme dehydration, this refreshing mask is bursting with Kiwi and bilberry extracts providing the skin with revitalising vitamins and minerals to defend against future dehydration and skin damage. Skin is soothed and hydrated with renewed energy.

I’m prone to flushes particularly at night which formulas are best?

Switch your day and night cream to our Hydrating Day Cream and Hydrating Night Cream which are packed with double encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid, Acacia Collagen and a unique combination of Vitamin E, Phytosterols and omega-3/6 essential fatty acids, to renew the skin’s barrier at a cellular level. By slowly releasing these powerful actives in a controlled dose, these essential formulas transform dry, dull skin to reveal plumper, hydrated skin without overwhelming reactive skin.

What about Body skincare?

Your body needs special TLC after exposure to harsh environmental stresses.  Hydranet Moisturising Body Cream nourishes and soothes very dry, dull skin with a high concentration of Hyaluronic acid and barbary fig seed oil to deliver long-lasting moisture leaving your skin feeling supple, conditioned and hydrated for hours. 

How can I support my skin from the inside?

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water and to eat a diet high in water rich foods. SkinSense NEW Hyaluronic Acid Gummies help to replace lost moisture in the skin which depletes by as much as 50% between the ages of 47 and 60. By replacing lost moisture, the natural production of collagen is supported which helps promote plumper, firmer skin. These mixed berry gummies are soft and easy to chew making them the most delicious addition to your Summer skin regime.
