Summer is often synonymous with relaxation and vacation. However, weather conditions, such as intense heat and prolonged exposure to the sun, can present challenges for your skin. To counter these effects, you need to adapt your facial care routine. With the right products and the right habits, having perfect skin this summer is not an insurmountable task.
1. Deep cleansing: a must for facial care
The first step to healthy, radiant skin is deep cleansing. It is an essential step in facial care that can easily be done at home or in a beauty salon. In summer, the skin produces more sebum and tends to attract more dirt. This is why thorough cleaning with a mild cleanser is ideal. It effectively removes impurities without drying out your skin. This is what we do at Sobella Paris before any treatment in our range.
2. Regular exfoliation: get rid of blackheads and dead cells
After cleansing, the next step is exfoliation. It is a crucial part of facial care, especially for removing blackheads. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, impurities and blackheads that can clog pores. It also stimulates cell turnover and improves blood circulation, which can give your skin a natural, healthy glow.
Regular use of an exfoliator, such as our "Revitalizing Exfoliating Scrub" from Sobella Paris, can help prevent the appearance of blackheads and keep the skin soft and smooth. This institute-grade scrub is designed to be gentle enough for frequent use while still being effective at removing dead skin cells.
By applying this exfoliator to your face, you will not only notice a reduction in blackheads, but also an improved absorption of skin care products that follow in your routine. It ideally prepares the skin to receive the benefits of serums, moisturizers and anti-aging treatments.
Remember, when exfoliating, it's important to be gentle. Do not rub too hard as this can irritate the skin and cause redness. Simply apply the scrub to damp face, gently massage in circular motions, then rinse with lukewarm water.
Now that your skin is perfectly exfoliated and pores are free of clogs, you're ready for the next steps in your facial care routine. This regular practice will help you maintain healthy, radiant, blackhead-free skin this summer.
3. Daily hydration: keeping the skin supple and radiant
In the summer, the skin can easily become dehydrated due to the heat and humidity. This is why hydration is an essential step in facial care. We recommend using a Lightweight Moisturizing Lotion with a non-greasy formula that deeply hydrates while letting your skin breathe.
In addition to its moisturizing effect, prefer a Light Moisturizing Lotion infused with natural and nourishing ingredients that help protect the skin against environmental aggressions. It should be fortified with antioxidants that help fight free radical damage, as well as vitamins and minerals that contribute to overall skin health without weighing your skin down, making it ideal for use in summer.
To apply it:
1. Pour a small amount of the lotion into the palm of your hand;
2. Rub your hands together to warm it up;
3. Apply it to your face using gentle circular motions. This will help the lotion penetrate your skin and provide optimal hydration.
Remember, the key to healthy, radiant skin is hydration, both from inside and outside. So, in addition to using a Light Moisturizing Lotion, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day.
4. Sun protection: an important step in facial care
No summer facial would be complete without adequate sun protection. The sun can cause significant damage to the skin, including premature aging. This is why it is essential to apply sunscreen before going out. Prefer Broad Spectrum Sun Cream SPF50+ for optimal protection against UVA and UVB rays.
A sunscreen not only protects your skin against the sun's rays, it is also enriched with nourishing ingredients that moisturize and soothe your skin. Prefer a light and non-greasy sunscreen, which will not leave you with unpleasant white residues. It must be, water resistant, which means it remains effective even after swimming or intense sweating, ideal for active summer days.
To use it:
1. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen to your face and neck 15-30 minutes before going out in the sun.
2. Remember to reapply every two hours, or more frequently if you're swimming or sweating.
By protecting your skin from the sun, you not only prevent sunburn, but also premature signs of aging, such as wrinkles and age spots. So whether you plan to spend your day at the beach or just take a walk, never forget to apply your sunscreen.
5. The importance of internal hydration and a balanced diet
Hydration isn't just important on the outside, it's also crucial on the inside. Drinking plenty of water is essential to keep the skin hydrated. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, packed with antioxidants, will also help your skin fight free radical damage and maintain a healthy complexion.
Along with a balanced diet and proper hydration, sleep plays a vital role in the health of your skin. During sleep, your skin repairs and regenerates itself. It is therefore important to ensure quality sleep so that your skin has enough time to renew itself. A good night's sleep can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and improve your skin's radiance.
Also, remember that every skin type is different and has specific needs. Tailoring your skincare routine to your unique needs is key to achieving the best results. It is recommended that you consult a skin professional, such as an esthetician or dermatologist, for advice on the products and techniques that will work best for you.
Finally, and most importantly, healthy skin is a reflection of a healthy lifestyle. A balanced diet, regular exercise, proper hydration, adequate sleep, and adequate sun protection are all essential to maintaining healthy, radiant skin. So don't forget, take care of yourself and your skin will thank you!
6. Sleep: a natural facial treatment
Never underestimate the power of a good night's sleep. Sleep is when your skin repairs and regenerates. Be sure to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night to help your skin recover from the day's assaults.
Summer is a time for soaking up the sun and having fun, but that doesn't mean you have to neglect your skin. With these facial care tips, you can enjoy the summer while maintaining radiant, healthy-looking skin. Remember, facial care isn't just about applying products, it's also about taking care of yourself from the inside out. So hydrate, eat healthy and get enough rest for perfect skin this summer!
