7 tips for beautiful skin this summer
We spoke with a few of our Professional Skin Therapists to find out their top tips for beautiful, clear skin this Summer.
1. Clean your pillowcases weekly.
This is a very simple, yet super effective tip to prevent breakouts from bacteria that might be harvesting on your pillow cases.
2. Incorporate Essential Fatty Acids daily.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) help with the quality of oil being produced in the skin and regulates a healthy oil-flow which helps to prevent breakouts. EFA’s also help your skin retain moisture, which is vital for preventing fine lines, wrinkles and can assist with collagen production.
3. Clean your makeup brushes every week.
We recommend washing your makeup brushes once a week if you are a daily makeup wearer. Use an antibacterial wash like The Ultimate Tea Tree Wash. Air dry brushes flat and keep them stored in their container.
4. Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Drinking the recommended daily water intake will help rid your body and skin of toxins, resulting is a healthier complexion. The suggested amount of water to drink a day for women is approximately 8 glasses.
5. Exfoliate twice a week.
Exfoliation buffs off any dull, dry skin cells on the surface on the skin and speeds up the process in which your skin renews itself with healthy and fresh cells. We recommend the helping hand of an at-home weekly exfoliant such as ASI’s AHA Power Exfoliant or regular visits to your salon for a deeper professional exfoliation to achieve a bright, clear and fresh complexion.
6. Eat a nutrient-rich diet.
Healthy skin starts with correct nourishment from within. By eating the correct balance of foods, you can feed your skin with the vital nutrients it needs to help your complexion stay fresh, healthy and blemish-free. Generally speaking, the best food you can be fueling your body with to help clear your skin are fruits and vegetables that are packed with Antioxidants. Berries are one of the highest antioxidant foods you can eat.
7. Protect your skin.
The sun still takes reign as the number one cause of premature ageing. In fact, 90% of skin ageing is caused by the sun. Invest in a good quality broad spectrum spf. We love Kosmea’s Moisturising Lotion SPF30+ with 20% Zinc Oxide, it provides a strong protective barrier to the sun. You will find this product at your closest Brazilian Beauty clinic.
