Countdown to summer

Why is it important to prepare your skin for summer?
As the summer season approaches, it's essential to prepare your skin for the sun's harsh rays and the potential damage they can cause. By taking the necessary steps to protect and nourish your skin, you can ensure a healthy and radiant complexion all summer long.
1. Exfoliate for a fresh start
Before exposing your skin to the sun, it's crucial to exfoliate. This process removes dead skin cells, allowing for better absorption of tanning products and ensuring an even tan. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or brush to slough off any dry or flaky skin. How often you should exfoliate depends on your skin type and the product you're using. Generally, 1-3 times a week is a good starting point for most people. If you have sensitive skin, start with less frequent exfoliation. Polish Exfoliating Cleanser will promote cell renewal, help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while immediately improving skin texture.
2. Choose the right tanning products
When it comes to achieving a sun-kissed glow, it's important to choose the right tanning products. Look for self-tanners or bronzers that suit your skin type and provide a natural-looking tan. TOUCH & GLOW self-tanning body cream gives you a natural tan without the damaging effects of the sun. The Cosmetic Factory offers a wide range of high-quality tanning products suitable for all skin tones.
3. Apply sunscreen religiously
Sunscreen is a non-negotiable step in your summer skincare routine. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Remember to reapply every two hours, especially if you're spending time outdoors or swimming.
4. Hydrate your skin from within
Proper hydration is key to maintaining healthy skin during the summer months. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and plump. Additionally, incorporate hydrating skincare products into your routine, such as moisturizers and serums.
5. After sun care for soothing relief
After a day in the sun, it's essential to provide your skin with soothing relief. Look for after sun care products that contain aloe vera or chamomile to calm and hydrate your skin. The Cosmetic Factory offers a range of after sun care products that can help replenish and rejuvenate your skin.
6. Protect your lips and eyes
Don't forget to protect your lips and eyes from the sun's harmful rays. Use a lip balm with SPF to shield your lips from sunburn and dryness. Wear sunglasses with UV protection to prevent damage to your eyes and the delicate skin around them. Renew Eye Cream is enriched with probiotics that optimizes the strengthening of biological defences and peptides to reduce puffy eye bags and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
7. Stay in the shade during peak hours
To minimize sun exposure and reduce the risk of sunburn, it's advisable to stay in the shade during the peak hours of the day, typically between 10 am and 4 pm. If you need to be outdoors, seek shade under an umbrella or wear protective clothing.
