While there’s a lot to love about summer, too much exposure to the sun can actually be harmful to our skin. That doesn’t mean sunbathing and beach holidays are out, it just means you need to make more of an effort to prepare and care for your skin in the summer. From choosing the right everyday skincare products to being sensible when out in the sun – we share our advice for tip-top skin this summer.
You should wear face cream with SPF all year round and especially in the summer months. This should be applied at least 20 minutes before heading outside. A face cream with SPF will offer protection from the sun’s harmful rays and help prevent issues like sun spots, freckles, and early signs of ageing.
It’s also worth remembering that direct sun exposure should always be avoided between 10 am and 2pm – even if you are wearing your SPF.
One of our favourite product ranges with SPF is Heliocare. Available at AP Skincare, the product range includes all your essential, everyday skincare products. Featuring an SPF of 50, it helps to minimise environmental damage and protects against UV attack.
Older, ageing skin needs just as much protection as younger skin. The signs of ageing can also be reduced with a good anti-ageing skincare product. Products in the Endocare and Retriderm ranges have been developed with those aged 35 plus in mind. Packed full of ingredients to tackle all the usual skin problems, the products ensure hydrated, rejuvenated, and younger looking skin.
During the summer months, it’s a good idea to give your skin a boost – especially after a holiday abroad. An AP Skincare Derma-Facial treatment is one of the best options to revitalise and tone your summer skin. Our specially chosen ingredients will start to protect your skin and tackle the signs of ageing while our muscle-sculpting massage will ensure that youthful, plumped look.
If the sun has really started to take its toll on your skin and affected your confidence, it may be worth considering anti-wrinkle treatments. Our specialist Botox treatment will soften and erase fine lines on your face for up to 4-6 months – leaving you line-free all summer.
Just like your skin, your lips need appropriate protection too. Look for lip balms and lipsticks with an SPF of at least 15. Lip balms are usually a better option over lip gloss.
