Summer Skincare Swaps
With summer already in full swing, we asked our clinic team about the changes they are making to their skincare routines during the warmer months. Here's what they had to say
Switching up the SPF
Kimberley, our Senior Practitioner, is loving the new Mesoestetic Mesoprotech Antiaging Facial Sun Mist SPF 50+. This SPF is perfect for topping up your sun protection during the hotter months and even applies over makeup. The aerosol mist is very light weight, non-sticky and refreshing.
Kate, our Nurse Practitioner likes to add extra hydration into her routine during the summer and the new Hyaluronic Acid serum, HA Densimatrix from Mesoestetic is ideal for all skin types and can be included into anyone's routine for a real hydration boost.
Kate uses the serum both in the morning and evening for that hydrated and fresh feeling!
Non-greasy body oil
Julie, our Laser Specialist, says her go-to product for the summer months is Olverum The Dry Body Oil. As it is a dry oil, Julie says it leaves her body feeling soft and hydrated without a greasy feeling, which is not ideal in the warmer summer months! The Dry Body Oil is great if you're in a rush as it dries quickly and it contains quality ingredients to feed the skin and at a reasonable price!
Swap foundation for tinted SPF
Suzanne, our Front of House Manager, tends to change from a heavier foundation to a tinted SPF during summer. Suzanne uses Heliocare 360 Colour Gel Oil Free SPF 50 in Bronze, she says: "It gives me a full coverage and protects against all harmful rays, including blue light from computer screens, I feel like I've got a sun kissed glow whilst also protecting my skin."
Hydrate from the inside
Clare, our Front of House Receptionist, takes care of her skin from the inside by boosting her hydration levels with Rejuvenated H3O Hydration. The berry-flavoured supplement boosts cellular hydration and offers nutritional support for skin by enhancing water absorption.
Hydrated cells are healthier and work more effectively, which is especially important during the hot weather.
Jess, our Skin Practitioner, is a busy working mum, so when her daughter heads to bed, she takes every opportunity she can for an at-home pamper! Jess uses the Croma Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask and Eye Mask to boost hydration, elasticity and moisture levels.Jess says: “I like to pop the Croma Hyaluronic Acid Eye Mask in the fridge for a couple of hours before use, which makes it the most soothing and refreshing treatment for the delicate eye area.
And finally me, Claire, Senior Skin Practitioner. Well this summer I'm trying the new serum and night cream by Emepelle, which has been created especially for ladies who are pre and post-menopausal. It's formulated with a host of top ingredients to fully support the changes to the skin during these hormonal changes.
It is known that the loss of collagen can accelerate during the menopause - another added problem we don't need! - and the Emepelle products are designed to mimic hormone receptors, keeping cells communicating so that collagen is stimulated to keep regenerating.
The products are also packed full of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid as well as Vitamin A in the night cream, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything in my routine. I've only been using the products for around a week now, but love the texture and feel of them, they are slightly more expensive, but I believe they are definitely worth it! Emepelle is only available in clinic, so ask for more information at your next appointment.
