Are you struggling to keep your glow on this summer? From sunburn to dryness, the warmer weather can bring many unwelcome changes to our skin. But with our three summer skin saviours, you can have hydrated, calm and smooth skin this summer (and every summer after!)

Protect your skin from sun damage

Although living in Australia can be wonderful for all its sunshine and warmth, the ozone layer is greatly depleted here. This magnifies the strength of sunburn and increases the surface UVB levels. So it’s no wonder that daily sunscreen is our first summer skin saviour.

Sun damage is accumulative and although you may not notice it in the form of an immediate sunburn, sun damage will show up later like that uninvited party guest at your summer barbecue. Most of the time sun damage will appear in the form of wrinkles, pigmentation, blood vessels, brown spots and open pores. A light, oil-free sunscreen such as the ARx Face and Body Sunscreen is a must. This lotion provides an excellent skin feel and is make-up compatible and suitable for sensitive skin and children. This unique sunscreen utilises a patented technology to simultaneously protect from the sun whilst allowing for the production of vitamin D in the skin. 

Hydrate with a professional moisturiser 

The change to summer weather often results in a change in your skincare routine. Your skin can become easily dehydrated from humid weather, sweat, chlorine, salt water and even makeup. Beat the heat and make sure your skin doesn’t look like a desert this summer by drinking plenty of water and upping your moisturiser game.

It’s important to make sure you avoid harsh products and soaps that can cause damage and dehydrate your skin too. Although you may be sweating plenty, it doesn’t mean your skin can skip moisturiser. If you’re not sure how much moisturiser to put on or which products to use, book a complimentary advanced skin consultation at your local clinic. We will assess your skin and design a personalised skincare regime just for you, for FREE!

Soothe your skin with the ARx H20 Lipid Balm

With weather as gorgeous as this, it’s hard to stay out of the sun completely. In case sunburn and redness result, one of the best ways to immediately soothe your skin is with our final summer skin saviour, the H20 Lipid Balm. This incredible product works by protecting, healing and regenerating the skin. Apply this after any skin irritation to prevent discomfort and maintain hydration!
