How to Maintain Your Summer Glow Year Round
Written by Courtney
We all love that gorgeous glow that happens so effortlessly in the summer months, however keeping that glowing skin all year round is not so easy. As we head into the cooler months, our skin becomes increasingly dry and dull due to a lack of moisture in the environment and our changing habits. We’ve put together a guide on how you can look after your skin to maintain your shimmering summer glow year-round.
Exfoliate the Skin Regularly
Exfoliating the skin has many benefits: it unclogs pores, prevents acne, helps other skincare products to penetrate the skin deeper, evens the skin tone, boosts circulation, and helps lymphatic drainage. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells encouraging skin renewal and revealing the bright skin underneath. For a hydrating and brightening treatment, use Neutriderm C Scrub and Copper Activator three times a week to unleash your best skin.
Use a Hydrating Moisturiser Daily
Moisturisers that help the skin radiate glowing health are free from fragrance, parabens, alcohol, and other preservatives that rob the skin of moisture. Keeping the skin hydrated and healthy can reduce the appearance of blemishes and prevent premature wrinkles and fine lines. Smooth, hydrated skin reflects the light differently and adds to the illuminated from within effect. Neutriderm Moisturising Lotion with Vitamin E is perfect for daily use to hydrate the skin and protect against external pollutantseeds to cool down and recuperate. Cold reduces swelling and inflammation. Soak a towel or cloth in icy water and press it onto any areas that are red.
Use Products that Brighten
Dull skin can be difficult to combat with just a regular skin routine alone. The best way to achieve a glowing complexion is with products that are targeted to brighten. Retinol is one of the most effective brightening ingredients. The Neutriderm Brightening Bar contains retinol to gently cleanse the skin to combat dull complexion and leave a natural glow. Consult your dermatologist before using any new products and do a patch test on your hand or arm to test for any reaction.
Practice Healthy Habits
Our overall health affects the appearance of our skin. It is important to avoid habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol that dry out the skin and lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness. It is recommended to eat a healthy balanced diet, exercise daily, drink 8 glasses of water a day and get 8 hours of sleep each night.
Healthy skin reflects an overall healthy lifestyle. Skin that is nourished from within by good hydration, nutrition, exercise, and good skincare, radiates youthful beauty that we all desire.
Use SPF Daily
The Australian government recommends using skin products with an SPF between 30 and 50 to block both types of damaging UV rays. Using skin products with the proper amount of SPF protects skin, minimises sun damage, and reduces the chances of contracting skin cancer. No matter the season, it is always important to practice sun safety by wearing SPF, protective clothing and avoiding the sun at peak times of the day.
As the end of summer approaches, now is the time to kick your skincare routine into high gear to keep that healthy, glowing complexion into the cooler months. By following our easy guide, you will be on the way to healthy beautiful skin in no time.
