The long, dark and dry winter days are finally over. Summer is just around the corner, and you are ready to bask in its warmth and sunshine. However, before you do that, think about how the extra hours in the sun can affect your skin. Specifically, how will they impact the delicate skin of your face that is going to be exposed the most?
There will the occasional summer sun burn, UV rays are particularly dangerous and threatening as they can accelerate typical signs of aging that include fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin. Add to that the threats of humidity and hot temperatures that cause their own set of skin problems such as extra oil and shine. In order to protect your skin, in order to foster the most beautiful summer skin all summer long, follow the best skin regimen for the hot, sunny months that are ahead of us. The Genucel skin care line by Chamonix has devised a skin care routine that will leave you feeling beautiful inside and out
- Cleanse twice a day and exfoliate for radiant skin
The hot and humid air may cause your skin to be more oily than usual. You may also experience more sweat than during the previous spring and winter months. In order to maintain your skin both matte (read: not oily) as well as moisturized, cleansing twice daily with a natural wash is the best approach. In the morning, the wash will help remove oil and debris that may have accumulated overnight, while at night it may help remove residue that has built up during the day. Exfoliation is one secret to smoother and younger looking skin. Whatever your age, exfoliation is beneficial to help keep skin clear of blemishes by removing dead skin. Every day, dirt and skin cells build up and clog the pores. Microdermabrasion is like deep cleansing the skin. Genucel’s Cristalles Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin for a younger and smoother appearance. This treatment reveals radiant, smooth skin, and the best part is that you do not have to go to the spa for this. Cristalles Microdermabrasion uses Magnesium oxide which is the same ingredient spas use for microdermabrasion. As such, it encases the exfoliant in a rich cream base – this luxurious cream moisturizes and soothes the skin to improve the appearance of roughness, acne, age spots, skin discoloration, fine facial lines, and wrinkles. Regular exfoliation may even enable your skin to better absorb other products.
- Light Daily Moisturizer
Given the summers humidity and hot temperatures, you no longer need the thick and greasy moisturizers that you have turned to during the winter. The key to maintaining glowing and radiant skin during the humid and hot summer months is a light moisturizer that will leave your skin hydrated without making it too greasy and/or clogging your pores. Chamonix’s Genucel XV is a soft and silky moisturizer that is also an advanced wrinkle treatment and perfect to use during the summer time. The cream is based on the latest Plant Stem Cell technology with new peptides, hyaluronic acid and a few other ingredients that not only moisturizes effectively but also offers powerful anti-aging effects. The proprietary base of calendula flower and essential oil extracts help you achieve the difficult combination of moisturized skin and breathing and free pores.
- Eye Cream
The skin around your eyes always needs more TLC than the rest of your face, and this is especially true in the summer heat. Using regular moisturizer under the eyes may be too think and heavy and therefore wear them down. What you want to use is something light that will leave the area under your eyes moisturized but also light at the same time.
Genucel is the industry leader’s latest under-eye product that will help make tired eyes look younger instantly. The secret is in a. blend of Beautifeye and Meadowlactone that will help improve the appearance of your eyes. Beautifeye is a mix of rare botanica extracts, while Meadowlactone is an ingredient that is extracted from meadowfoam seed oil, one of the most effective moisturizers on the market.
- Wrinkle Care
Protecting your face from the heat and humidity of the summer months should be a priority. However, just because you are focused on that, it does not mean that you should not think about anti-wrinkle treatments. Given that the summer heat can leave your skin dehydrated, this can only enhance the appearance of wrinkles, especially those around your eye area.
Genucel’s Immediate effects reduces the appearance of wrinkles, bags, and puffiness around the eyes. It is based on the Relaxoderm technology that helps relax your facial muscles without harmful side effects while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and bags around your eyes for up to 24 hours. Other ingredients such as GABA and Gynostemma combine nicely to help relax the skin. We recommend combining it with Genucel Plant Stem Cell Therapy for the best results.
- Beauty Sleep and night creams
Now that you are cleaning your face twice a day and exfoliating on a regular basis, using an effective night cream is a great way to maintain your skin’s moisture, elasticity, and firmness. The Genucel Revitalizing Face Crème for night repair is a powerful firming and moisturizing product. It enhances the appearance of healthy, vibrant, and youthful-looking skin and works really well for mature and dry skin. The best part about this is that it all takes place while you sleep.
The sun’s UV rays are always damaging to the skin and can lead to more wrinkles as well as spots. You want to look for something that will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays so that your face does not burn and is not exposed to aging factors. Look for a sunscreen with a broad spectrum and a SPF of at least 30. For your body, a sunscreen of SPF 30 or more on any exposed skin is always good. Also, make sure to protect your shoulders, arms, hands or legs. For lip protection from the sun’s exposure, try SPF-rated lip balms or makeup.
Summer’s higher temperatures and generally longer days outdoors in the heat can lead to internal dehydration. This can result in headaches, dizzy spells, lack of concentration and dry skin. In order to prevent all that, eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water a day may help maintain a moisture balance inside and outside. Drinking enough water every day can also help with detoxification. Also, be aware that if you are drinking caffeinated beverages (read: diuretics that are dehydrating), make sure that you drink at least three times the recommended amount of water.
Chamonix Skin care is a natural, antioxidant-based, and transformative line of products. The company creates their products around antioxidants as the primary ingredient with the confidence that elements such as grape seed oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Ester-C and others fight free radicals, boost collagen production, nourish, and moisturize the skin.
