FEELING HOT, SWEATY AND SPOTTY? THE ROUTE TO SUMMER SKIN SALVATION LIES HERE…
The problem: You’re hot, bothered and red. Even if you’re not prone to Rosacea, (which often worsens during the summer months) increased sun exposure can cause blood vessels to dilate, causing flushing and prolonged redness.
The solution: Keep cool and carry on. Carry a bottle of face mist with you to spritz on whenever, wherever – then apply a cold compress when you get home. Did you know that Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner can be kept in the fridge and used to spritz for maximum refreshment? Elemis Daily Redness Solution also soothes blotchy skin, helping to calm flushing whilst simultaneously providing much-needed hydration.
The problem: Spots. Increased sweat production mixes with old make-up and the general grime of daily life, clogging those pores. Before you know it, your usually blemish-free complexion is looking more than a little spotty.
The solution: Firstly, resist the temptation to use your hands to wipe the sweat off – you’ll only add to the mounting bacteria and create more breakouts. Secondly, avoid the tendency to strip the skin with an overly harsh cleanser. Elemis Smart Cleanse Micellar Water intelligently removes all make-up, plus draws out both water and oil-based impurities from the pores. It also contains soothing Chamomile and helps maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier. So you’re treating skin kindly in order to clear it.
The problem: Dryness. Whilst trains, cars and houses can get sweat-inducingly hot, conversely, hotels and office spaces can be chilly with air conditioning pumping out. The effect is to draw humidity from the air, which in turn, causes the skin to become dry.
The solution: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream has been formulated for those times when your skin just seemingly cannot get enough hydration. Providing continuous moisture, it contains extracts from desert plants able to withstand hot, dry temperatures to get your skin looking plump and dewy once more.
The problem: Smudged make-up. All that sweat and humidity literally starts to ‘melt’ your make-up – particularly around the eyes. So no matter how carefully you applied them in the morning, mascara, eye shadow and liner have become smudged and smeared by lunchtime.
The solution: Prime and set. First, create the perfect canvas for make-up by applying Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm. The cooling applicator, combined with Chamomile, Arnica and Bird of Paradise flower helps soothe puffiness and dark circles – reducing the need for as much make-up. After you’ve applied your make-up, set it with a very light loose powder to help it hug the skin, even in the heat.
The problem: Sunburn. We all know that we should be wearing sunscreen – more so in the summer months than any other time of year. That’s why Elemis created Elemis Liquid Layer SPF 30 – to help prevent sun damage, which can age the skin and cause pigmentation.
The solution: A cool milk compress is an excellent way to start calming the skin and relieving the inflammation. Then let Elemis S.O.S Emergency Cream come to your rescue with its ability to deliver intense hydration and comfort to dry, irritated skin – and help re-balance it, putting it back on the road to recovery.
