Heading off on holiday this summer? We’ll bet you’re investing plenty of time ensuring you look your very best for the beach, but have you put any thought into how to make sure your complexion looks just as good come September?
We asked Cosmetic Doctor Natalie Blakely for her summer vacation skincare tips so that you can be confident that your ‘healthy glow’ is actually as healthy as it looks.
Time For Take Off
Cabin air can dry out your skin, so it needs a hydration hit before you board. Opt for a deeply hydrating day cream that will increase moisturisation levels and help to maintain the moisture levels in the skin. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water while on board too.
To ensure that you are looking fresh-faced the moment you touch down, apply some Immediate Effect Serum 15 minutes before you landing. The serum quickly brightens dark circles while minimising fine lines – just perfect for hiding the signs of a long flight or an early start!
With limited suitcase space, you have to choose your skincare products wisely when heading on your holiday. That’s why I recommend the multi-tasking CULT51 Day Cream. Not only does it prime and perfect your skin, it also protects it against future damage. Combining SPF with anti-oxidants, this moisturiser helps minimise free radical damage caused by UV rays.
As many of the signs of ageing are the result of UV exposure, it is vital that you stay safe in the sun. So don’t forget to invest in a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and, of course, plenty of sunscreen. Your skin will thank you for this caution in the future!
