Are you investing time into maintaining your most important asset? Here are five quick and simple solutions to keep your skin & body looking younger, fresher and healthier for longer:
1. Cleanse & Exfoliate
The skin has metabolic waste products and debris which need to be removed on a daily basis. It is, therefore, important to cleanse your face twice a day, cleanse your body once a day and exfoliate your face and body at least 1-2 times a week. Cleansing removes any excess oil, sweat, dead skin cells and metabolic secretions. For the body, try the newly launched Spacology Body Wash, only available at the Renewal Institute.
2. Restore & Hydrate
Facial moisturisers hydrate the skin and boost the skin's natural repair function. Stimulating active ingredients work in the deeper layers of the skin, to treat skin conditions such as pigmentation, wrinkles and uneven texture. For the face, some great options include Lamelle Nourish Revitalise Lite, SkinCeuticals Daily Moistureand Neostrata Sheer Hydration. It is equally important to hydrate the body every day, especially if you are spending a lot of time outdoors. For the body, we recommend Neostrata Ultra Smoothing Lotion.
The importance of sunscreen for both the face and body, can't be emphasised enough. There are some brilliant facial sunscreens, including Lamelle Helase, Heliocare 360 and Neostrata Sheer Physical Protection. For the body, try Heliocare Spray SPF50.
It's highly advisable to make use of supplements that are potent anti-oxidants, not only to protect your skin but also to boost your immune system while you are travelling. We highly recommend Lamelle OvelleD3 or Heliocare Capsules.
5. Drink Water
Our bodies are made up of 90% water, if we allowed ourselves to dehydrate, we would shrivel up. Your body requires water to keep the organs and cells plumped up and fully functional. Water also supports the kidneys and liver, which is important if you're attending a lot of parties, where you inevitably eat rich foods and indulge a little more than usual.
