Winter to Summer Skin Transitioning Tips

November 10, 2017

In Summer, the climate is hotter and more humid with more exposure to harmful UV rays, making it VITAL you adapt your skincare regime to suit!

During the cooler months, many people are more likely to skip their skincare routine because they’re cold and the days are shorter making them feel more tired and less likely to comply with their daily skincare application. The colder, drier air has a drying effect on your skin, so you must ensure you adopt a high-quality skincare product which has increased hydration properties, such as RejuvAus [M3] Rich Skin Repair Moisturising Cream to protect the skin from drying out. You may also want a gentle cleanser during these months due to your skin being dryer and more prone to flaking and sensitivity. We recommend RejuvAus [C1] Mild Exfoliating Gel Cleanser & Toner.c1

The Summer climate has a higher humidity, which stimulates the oil glands and produces an oilier skin condition. This means your skin needs extra exfoliation to unclog pores and shift dead skin cells in a cleanser with a lighter consistency.

It’s important to use AHA’s to help exfoliate the skin and loosen up those pesky dead skin cells. Activated Charcoal can also help remove impurities.  We recommend RejuvAus [C3] Purify Deep AHA Exfoliating Gel Cleanser & Toner.

For those oilier skin types, we recommend using a post cleansing serum to remove excess oil after cleansing and help to refine the pores. RejuvAus [S6] Clarifying Serum is a leave-on exfoliating serum with AHAs and BHAs to help remive stubborn skin cells and regulate your natural oils.

Just as importantly, it is vital you use a quality Vitamin A serum – Vitamin A is the most important active ingredient in skincare and is shown to be most effective for a myriad of skin problems. Vitamin A helps accelerate your skin cell turnover to produce newer, healthier cells and reduce hyperkeratinisation in which dead skin cells stick together and congest the skin. It also works as an anti-ageing ingredient that helps to promote new collagen in the skin and repair the collagen matrix which acts like the tent that holds your skin up firmly in its youth. Vitamin A can also help normalise over-active sebaceous activity, reducing oil output (again vital in the Summer months). We recommend RejuvAus [S1] ABC Repair & Restore Antioxidant Serum with Vitamins A, B and C. Alternatively, for oilier skin types, we recommend RejuvAus [S7] AB Repair & Restore Antioxidant Serum – Oily Skin & Pores.

Vitamin B is the second most important ingredient in your summer skincare routine. This active antioxidant helps to regulate moisture and soothe inflammation or irritation in the skin. For extra B Vitamins for your skin, we recommend RejuvAus [S5] Super B Brightening & Hydrating Serum.

The third most vital ingredient to include in the warmer months is Vitamin C. This strong antioxidant helps brighten the skin and regulate melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) to reduce the visible signs of sun damage and promote an even skin tone. You can get your Vitamin C along with Vitamin A in RejuvAus [S1] ABC Repair & Restore Antioxidant Serum, or you can apply them separately by using [S7] AB Repair & Restore and adding RejuvAus [S4] Super C Pigment & Hydration Serum.

M1 Super Moisturising UV LotionLast, but definitely not least, the most IMPORTANT addition to your Summer skincare regime is the daily application of SUNSCREEN. UV rays are exceptionally high in the summer (and still present in winter). In addition to skin cancer, the sun is the number one cause of pigmentation, visible damage and ageing. A good physical sunblock with Zinc and Titanium is the most beneficial product you can apply to your skin.

We recommend RejuvAus [M1] Super Moisturising UV Lotion which has skin repair and skin soothing properties as well as physical sun blocking ingredients to protect, hydrate and repair all in one.
