Your essential guide to protecting your skin this summer

If you're going on holiday to a sunny climate, this will be the perfect guide for you. If you're staying in the UK this year, this will probably be the perfect guide too. Let's face it, we've had weather that has had us looking at air conditioning and measuring up the garden for an outdoor swimming pool. 😂

Everyone knows that wearing suncream is a must. Especially when you go on holiday to more tropical climates. We've all experienced sunburn. It can be very painful, it's not a good look, but more than anything, it's incredibly dangerous to your skin and can result in skin cancer.

But other than plying yourself with suncreams, how else can you protect your skin from the sun?

#1 Sunglasses

Sunglasses are great when you need to shade your eyes from the bright glare of the suns powerful rays. Sun glasses come in especially useful when you're reading a book, driving, or accessorising that perfect summer outfit.

Sunglasses are also really effective at protecting the delicate skin around your eyes from the suns harmful rays. Have you ever heard anyone say, "your eyes give you away" when they are talking about the age of a person? Protect your eyes and avoid ageing them in the sun.

#2 Lip balm

Like most people you probably associate the use of lip balm with the winter, cold months. It's true, winter weather definitely takes its toll on your skin and your lips in particular. 

Lips are usually moist and protrude from your face. The dryer they get, the more you tend to lick them. This leads to them drying and cracking.

The same thing happens in the sun. They can dry out, crack and blister. Keeping your lips moisturised will ensure they stay soft and supple. If you have lip fillers, you'll need to take extra care of your lips, so using lip balm will be a great idea for you.

#3 Daily Capsules

So far we've discussed how you can take care of your skin by protecting it from the outside, but what about protecting from the inside?

Each sunscreen pill works by improving the body’s tolerance to UV rays, preventing sun-damaged skin. The key ingredient in these tablets is Polypodium leucotomos extract, a potent plant with antioxidant properties that has been tested for efficacy for leading American and international dermatologists. This extract helps the skin maintain its structure and immune response against sun damage.

#4 Hydrafacial

The Hydrafacial has always been a very popular treatment at our clinic.

Loved by the medical community, beauty editors and celebrities alike, the HydraFacial MD® resurfacing procedure is an incredible non-invasive treatment that utilizes award-winning, patented technology to detoxify, rejuvenate and protect your skin. It delivers immediate results & long-term benefits without downtime or irritation.

 

#5 Prepair and Protect creams

We can't recommend this step highly enough. Using suncream and aftersun isn't enough if you want your skin to glow, but also to have protection.

Many people will take to the beaches, gardens and parks to soak up the suns rays. Some will use no SPF protection, some will use just suncream and others will use suncream and aftersun. But what if you want glowing skin that is protected from the suns rays and its ageing effect?
