Five tips for minimizing the effects of summer party fever!
When it comes to summer holiday fun, festive holiday occasions are a highlight in everyone’s diary. Whether it be the office year-end bash or spending time with family, late nights and a change in routine; it can leave your skin feeling as drained as your body. To make sure that you make the most of your holidays while keeping your healthy complexion, here are some tips from OPTIPHI®:
- Don’t compromise on your skincare routine
Late nights might make you feel tempted to skip your regular skincare routine which can cause breakouts and leave your skin feeling dry. Make sure that you don’t compromise on cleansing and moisturizing your skin, no matter what!
- Keep your skin hydrated
Alcohol, smoking and environmental elements easily dehydrate your skin. When we over indulge our skin suffers. Make sure that you replenish your skin with vital moisture, vitamins and minerals. This helps to restore skin density, support the structure of the skin, promote elasticity, activate collagen and replenish lost moisture.
- Make sure you get enough sleep
Lack of sleep causes our bodies to release the stress hormone cortisol, which breaks down collagen. A lack in collagen adds to the loss of skin firmness and elasticity. It may also makes your face look sallow and causes dark circles around the eyes. To target puffiness, dark circles and aging around the eyes try OPTIPHI® Eyesigns Activegel
- Ease redness and keep your complexion looking radiant
Skin stressors can leave your skin looking red and feeling uncomfortable. Frequent dips into a chlorinated pool can cause skin inflammation – but by all means cool off and enjoy the Summer weather just be sure to apply your OPTIPHI® Rejuvenating Revitaliser to replenish and revitalise your skin.
- Don’t forget to wear sunblock
Not only does the sun dehydrate the skin, it is one of the major causes of hyperpigmentation and premature aging. Even if you don’t plan to spend much time in the sun or will only be outdoors in the late afternoon, it’s very important to wear a sunscreen, such as the Protect the Canvas, daily & continuously re-apply every 2-3 hours.
