Stepping out onto a beach can be a daunting prospect if you are not body confident, so the important thing to remember before you jet off on holiday is to ensure your skincare regime is up to scratch and most importantly, that your face shows no signs of the long, hard winter that is now thankfully done and dusted. Below are some tips as to how to rejuvenate your face before heading for the airport.
Have a regime and stick to it
One of the most important ways to ensure that your face and general complexion is radiant is to have a suitable skincare regime that you stick to religiously. Adjust to the weather though and if you’re starting to notice that your skin is becoming more oily, swap your cream cleanser for a foaming face wash, for example.
Don’t forget the sun cream
Wearing sun protection every day is essential during the summer. But as well as making sure that you have a cream with a suitable sun protection factor (SFP), it is crucial to remember that reapplying regularly is essential. Slapping on some factor 30 in the morning and forgetting about your skin for the rest of the day is not good enough.
If you’re keen to rejuvenate your skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and décolletage then Dermaroller is a popular option. The device uses thousands of micro-medical needles to penetrate the skin, which once stimulated begins to regenerate, resulting in natural and long lasting improvement in skin quality.
Consider reducing dairy intake
If your skin is prone to breakouts then consider cutting down on the amount of dairy in your diet. Products such as milk, cheese and ice cream might just be causing more problems for your skin than you realise.
If you suffer from dry-looking, dull skin then a skin peel could be one answer when it comes to rejuvenating your look. There are various forms of treatment available but the general idea is to encourage the stimulation of collagen and elastin to make skin look brighter and smoother.
Opting for a full face lift might seem like an extreme option when it comes to rejuvenating your look in time for summer, but it is actually a very commonly requested procedure. Both men and women who want to look as young as they feel turn to the procedure which is designed to reduce or remove skin that is no longer as elastic as it once was, resulting in a tired appearance. You can find out more about getting a face lift by doing your own research on the internet, but it is always best to seek professional advice from a specialist that deals in cosmetic surgery and non-invasive treatments.
Watch out for the shower
The thought of a long, hot shower at the end of the day might be appealing but unfortunately it’s not that good for your skin. Hot showers will strip the moisture from the epidermis – the outer layer of your skin – leaving it dry and red. Keep hold of your precious moisture by turning down the temperature and cutting down on the amount of time you’re in the bathroom.
Consider making use of the fridge
The hot summer weather can leave you hot and bothered, but if you have refrigerated some of your skincare products then you could help to reduce redness. The low temperature of creams will help to reduce the dilation of the capillaries in the skin which leads to redness.
Line and wrinkle treatment
Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles quickly has become a lot easier thanks to dermal fillers. They can help to smooth away unwanted lines and lead to a far more youthful appearance.
Don’t take a holiday from your skincare!
Just because you are away from home does not mean that you should take a holiday from your skincare regime. Sun, humidity and salt water can all take their toll, so ensure that you stay on top of your beauty regime.
