A weathered complexion usually occurs when your skin has been exposed to the elements, such as harsh wind conditions, prolonged sun exposure, and even water that has been treated, such as in swimming pools. Although we are often more outdoorsy during the summer months, all that sun and fun can come at a cost, potentially forming deep wrinkles, sagging skin, spots and blemishes that can make our complexion look worn down.
Luckily, there is a solution to giving your skin new life after environmental conditions have taken a toll. With the right products and technique, you can plump up deep wrinkles, alleviate irritated dry skin and even diminish blemishes that have occurred over time. The most important factor of any skin care regimen is protecting your skin, so you can put your best face forward. Here are some after-summer care tips to keep in mind.
Hydration Is Key
Dehydrated skin occurs when it isn’t getting enough moisture. Sometimes even the products that we are exposed to daily, or those that we leave on our skin can lead to rough, itchiness that is both uncomfortable and unsightly. Your skin requires daily moisturization and protection to keep it looking its best. Janssen Rich Nutrient Skin Refiner noticeably decreases the appearance of wrinkles, creates a moisture barrier and protects the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.This may be obtained by consuming hydrating foods and drinking plenty of water, applying a moisturizer that will not only hydrate but will also lock in moisture and steering clear from drying elements such as the sun, which can also deplete your skin of important essential oils that naturally occur within the skin.
Exfoliate To Perfection
Exfoliation is a very beneficial method of clearing the skin of dead skin cells that no longer serve a purpose in creating the complexion that we desire. Your skin has a lifespan and typically regenerates itself each week, allowing deeper layers to come to the surface, as top layers fall off. As we age, our skin regenerates itself less often, making the exfoliation step that much more important. There are many ways to exfoliate, from deep medical-grade chemical peels, to light scrubs that you may perform at home. Janssen Cosmetics has it all. With our pore-refining Enzyme Peel, smooth skin with more clarity is a possibility. However, if you need more out of an exfoliant, applying a serum such as the Trifolia Complex, will not only visibly improve the structure of the skin, but adds more elasticity and encourages your own skin’s natural regenerative process.
Clean to Maintain Clarity
Clean skin is the first and one of the most important steps that not only sloughs away dirt and debris that accumulates daily, but without this crucial step, buildup would occur, blocking your pores and causing breakouts. Proper cleansing methods prevents the buildup of dirt and oil, to reveal fresh, renewed skin. All skin have pores, which enables the naturally-occurring sebum to come through to protect our skin but sebum can also attract dirt and debris. Since we have varying skin types, from dry, combination, to oily, using the proper cleanser can balance out your face’s delicate complexion and cleanse it the right way without stripping it.
Basic proper skincare is the building block of healthy and beautiful skin, but unless you are born with a perfect complexion, there is likelihood that you have some trouble spots that need to be addressed. From eyes to lips to acne spots, spot treatments create clarity that basic skin care may not thoroughly get to. Ampoule, masks and serums work wonders for brightening, strengthening the skin, no matter what issue may be ailing you. Even if you are lucky enough to have clear skin, we all get the occasional breakout from time to time. At any rate, breakouts are a sign that something may be going on internally, or perhaps it’s due to stress. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to what your skin is trying to tell you.
Protect From The Sun
Natural sunlight has amazing benefits for the skin,r mental health, and can actually help add a beautiful glow to your complexion. However, too much sun can have adverse effects that potentially lead to wrinkling, skin spots, premature aging and even skin cancer. The sun contains both UVA rays, which contributes to aging, and UVB rays, which causes sunburns. 90% of premature aging is caused by the sun, while 20% of the sun’s rays can penetrate your skin, even when the days are overcast. Apply a daily SPF to help prevent the harmful effects of the sun. Choose and SPF that is at least 15 or higher to reap some protective benefits. If you are spending more time outdoors, SPF 30 will do your skin some good.
Summer skin doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Treat your skin right with the correct products and you’ll see a vast improvement in its texture and feel
