How To Rescue Your Skin And Hair From Summer Dryness
Summer days are long, warm and often filled with outdoor activities such as swimming and playing sports outdoors. Our skin and hair are affected by sun exposure — such as skin and hair becoming more dry and also feeling dehydrated. There are ways to help your skin from looking drier than usual in the summer season and also skin care products to help your skin rehydrate if it’s looking dull. Find out how below.
If your skin seems duller and drier than usual it could be from prolonged sun exposure, higher temperatures or spending time in a pool (chlorine can dry out skin) look for hydrating products for your skin and help restore moisture in your complexion.
1. Daily SPF Moisturizer
“A good broad spectrum SPF (at least SPF15 or higher) is recommended especially during the summer,” says Dr. Angelike Galdi, Chief Scientific Advisor of Garnier SkinActive’s skin care labs. Help your skin by applying a brightening and hydrating moisturizer formulated with a broad spectrum SPF. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 has a fast absorbing, non-greasy formula which can shield your skin from the sun. Infused with antioxidant Vitamin C, it also helps reduce the look of visible sun-damage, revealing radiant, more even-toned, younger-looking skin. Use it to protect skin from sun damage and also fade the appearance of previously sustained sun damage.
2. Overnight Peel For Dullness And Dark Spots
Renewing the surface skin layer is crucial to dried out summer skin and can make it appear less flaky as it is gently exfoliated. A good way to do this is by using an overnight peel such as Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Peel formulated with Vitamin C to help refine and brighten skin.
3. Lotion Cleanser
If your skin is experiencing dryness in the summer use a lotion cleanser to remove make up. A lotion cleanser such as Garnier SkinActive Clean + Make Up Removing Lotion Cleanser is perfect for skin that needs to be cleansed but also needs extra moisture. Remove make up and dirt off your skin. Its hydrating formula is infused with plant extract and leaves skin feeling moisturized.
4. Hydrating Lotion
Finish your nightly skin care routine with a hydrating lotion. Garnier SkinActive’s Moisture Rescue Actively Hydrating Daily Lotion Fragrance Free SPF 15 has a moisturizing, non-comedogenic formula infused with glycerin that deeply hydrates your skin and helps strengthen skin's barrier to protect against moisture loss.
Chlorine and salt water can wreak havoc on hair so if you’re spending time in the ocean or pool this summer make sure to hydrate your hair so that it looks healthy and doesn’t dry out.
1. Hydrating Shampoo
Look for a shampoo that can help restore moisture while you wash out salt or pool water. Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Shampoo is formulated with Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk Extracts and has a moisturizing yet refreshingly lightweight formula. The tropical fragrance of coconut water and vanilla milk is delightful and it quenches and softens de-hydrated hair.
2. Hydrating Mask
A hair mask can help restore precious moisture to your dry hair. Try Garnier Whole Blends Hydrating Mask formulated with Coconut Water & Vanilla Milk Extracts to give strands a deep dose of hydration without weighing it down. Hair will feel delectably soft with a silky shine.
With the right products your skin and hair will make it through the summer without looking dry and instead looking healthy and moisturized.
