World Skin Care Day is one of our favourite dates, since it gives us the chance to raise awareness about the importance of looking after the skin and keeping it healthy regardless of our age.
If you’re wondering how to look after your skin, the answer is easy: by listening to it, watching it and fulfilling its needs at any given time. For instance, your skin care is different in summer and autumn. The skin is the body’s main protective barrier against external aggressions and, when September comes, it’s essential to have a facial skincare regimen that allows to repair the possible alterations caused by the sun’s rays, chlorine, salt, or air conditioning.
The keys to your September regimen
Why is a tailor-made regimen essential after the summer? From the age of 30, the skin starts to develop certain pigment irregularities. Most of these types of hyperpigmentation are completely harmless, but they can be unsightly, since they happen mostly on the face. After the summer, sun-induced spots are more frequent. This concern increases with age, since they are usually found on areas such as the forehead, upper lip, chin, neck, and décolleté. These blemishes make the skin look aged and dull.
Moreover, in September, the stress of the reentré may cause facial skin to look lacklustre and tired. Therefore, the aim is to recover skin glow and even out the skin tone after the summer with a tailor-made beauty regimen.
Are you ready to reset? Read on to discover the fundamental steps your skin needs after the summer:
As we know from other blog entries, cleansing is a fundamental step in any facial regimen. Besides cleansing the skin in depth and respecting the skin’s lipid layer, SENSYSES Lightening restores skin glow to dull or lacklustre skin thanks to its liposomal vitamin C content. In addition to vitamin C, this formula includes other depigmenting active ingredients which help fight blemishes. Its liposomes capture impurities and make-up traces. It also soothes the skin while respecting its pH, providing essential fatty acids which help restore the skin’s barrier function.
HIDRADERM TRX Mist is indicated for all skin types and helps treat hyperpigmentation thanks to its formula with tranexamic acid, which acts in inflammatory processes in which the production of melanin (skin pigment) is also involved.
Bonus tip: You can use HIDRADERM TRX MIST every morning on clean skin, or take it with you to apply any time of day. Your skin will thank the feeling of freshness and hydration in a single step. It also helps fix make-up and gives your skin a glowing touch.
STEP 3: Apply AZELAC RU Serum
To fight any type of blemish, Sesderma has developed AZELAC RU, the first liposomal depigmenting line that can be used year-round. “In the first place, it brightens the skin because it inhibits tyrosinase and reduces the production of melanin effectively. In the second place, it reduces blemishes by avoiding the dispersion of melanin and getting rid of the excess. Finally, it prevents the appearance of new blemishes. The result is blemish-free, more luminous and more even skin”, states the founder of Sesderma, Dr Gabriel Serrano.
Therefore, after cleansing, apply AZELAC RU intensive serum, formulated with a high concentration of depigmenting and antioxidant active ingredients that improve the appearance of blemishes and even out the skin tone. Its use is recommended as a base treatment, day and night, and is suitable for all skin types, year-round.
AZELAC RU Glowing Fluid is one of our favourites, because it treats and protects simultaneously. How’s this possible? It’s formulated with liposomal active ingredients that improve the appearance of blemishes, and it contains physical and chemical filters that protect against the sun’s UV rays.
Sunscreen is a must year-round to delay skin ageing, prevent sun spots, and also skin conditions. AZELAC RU Glowing Fluid not only is essential due to its triple depigmenting action which brightens, reduces, and prevents the appearance of new spots. Thanks to its SPF50, the result is glowing and blemish-free skin, with an even tone, thanks to its glowing pigments.
