With summer almost on its way, we can hardly wait for a taste of sunshine.
However, with temperatures set to soar, chances are you’ll experience some form or ‘summer skindrome’; think redness, sweaty skin and melting make-up.
That’s where these cooling skincare heroes come in. Packed with active ingredients to help refresh, soothe and hydrate, these refreshing power players help your skin to look and feel cool, even in the heat.
A HIT OF HYDRATION
Whether before, after make-up or on-the-go, this hydrating hero is one you’ll want to have with you at all times, especially in summer. With soothing Organic English Rose Hydrolat to help comfort dry, dehydrated skin, this high-performance serum-mist hybrid is clinically proven to provide instant and intense hydration that lasts up to 24 hours*. Whether you’re susceptible to redness or craving a cooling sensation on the skin, in just seconds this mist helps soothe and comfort.
Thanks to its fast-acting results, it also helps to set and stop melting make-up in its tracks, adding a boost of radiance for a perfect summer glow. We recommend combining it with New Pro-Collagen Insta-Smooth Primer for the ultimate flawless finish.
SAY GOODBYE TO SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
At night your body temperature tends to rise as it goes into repair and recovery mode. Combined with hotter temperatures during the summer, it’s a recipe for disaster for your skin – with increased water loss leading to dehydration and difficulties sleeping giving skin less time to carry out vital recovery processes.
With Peptide Plumping Pillow Facial, tired-looking, thirsty summer skin is a thing of the past.
Forming a bio-mimetic cooling veil on the skin’s surface to help prevent overnight water loss, it seals in hydrating actives such as Red Algae, Omega 3-rich Star Avensis™Oil and wild-harvested Indian Night Jasmine. Powerful Peptide⁴ works in sync with skin’s natural overnight processes to revitalise and replenish, while dreamy botanical extracts of Night Scented Stock, Ylang Ylang and Sweet Orange help you to drift off into a sweet slumber.
Come morning, you’ll look well-rested and radiant, with a complexion that feels plumped with moisture. Why not pop it in the fridge before bed for an extra-cooling feel on the skin, perfect for those sticky summer nights.
During the summer months, dry heat and air-conditioning can cause skin’s moisture barrier to lose water at a more rapid rate. Plumpness and dewiness disappears and the fine, dehydrated lines appear much more prominent.
The latest addition to ULTRA SMART PRO-COLLAGEN; our most innovative skincare collection yet, ULTRA SMART PRO-COLLAGEN Aqua Infusion Mask is a must-have for delivering intense hydration when skin needs it most, whilst reducing the appearance of deep set lines and wrinkles.
Clinically proven to improve hydration by up to 250% in one hour*, thanks to ULTRA SMART Aqua Shuttle Technology and advanced seaweed complexes, it continues to ensure skin is kept topped up with moisture throughout the day and maintain the moisture barrier. What’s more, an ULTRA SMART Line Fighting Complex, using a blend of three potent algae and Orange African Bulbine improves the appearance of deep set lines and wrinkles, for a smoother-looking complexion.
Headed on holiday? It’s also a perfect mask for giving a much-needed hydration boost during travelling; pop on in-flight, leave on skin for twenty minutes, removing any excess with a cotton pad or mitt to reveal a complexion that looks smoother and firmer.
PUT YOUR FEET UP
When you’ve been on your feet all day, especially in the heat, there’s nothing that feels more revitalising than ELEMIS Instant Refreshing Gel.
With a powerful synergy of Arnica, Birch and Witch Hazel extracts, this instant revitaliser relieves tired, swollen limbs and muscle tension. Massage from your feet and ankles upwards to provide immediate cooling relief – it can even be applied over tights on hot days in the office.
An essential for your holiday packing list, Camphor and Menthol provide a burst of cooling refreshment, and you can even use it for scalp and head tension by massaging into the temples and breathing deeply.
Whether home or on holiday, we won’t be without this multi-functional instant revitaliser to beat the heat.
