TEI Spa’s Top 4 Summer Skin Tips
Director of Education
Now that Summer has finally arrived it’s time to begin to treat your skin a little differently.
As the seasons change so does your skin which means you should change up your skin care routine a bit to meet the needs of your skin. During the Summer months we are exposed to more harmful UV rays since the days are longer this time of year. Remember to take it easy on your skin, especially after a long day out in the sun.
I have put together a few tips to help you adjust your skin to the upcoming Summer months.
EXFOLIATE, TREAT, HYDRATE AND PROTECT
1. EXFOLIATE – And no we don’t mean go out and get a chemical peel!! This time of year is not the ideal time to try and treat your hyper-pigmentation. By exfoliate we mean light exfoliation a couple of times a week to help remove any excess oil, dirt and debris. This will increase penetration of any serums, masks & moisturizers.
We recommend incorporating TEI Spa’s Sonic Spatula (exfoliation mode) after you cleanse your skin. Lightly spritz TEI Spa’s Lavender HydraMist all over and use the Sonic Spatula to exfoliate.
2. TREAT – After a long day of sun exposure your skin needs to be replenished. UV Exposure causes photo-aging. Whether you have a sunburn or not photo-aging does occur and will show up on your skin in the form of brown spots, coarse skin & wrinkles. Also, stripping your skin of its natural lipid barrier therefore sensitizing your skin and causing inflammation.
*TREAT With TEI Spa’s OxyCalming Serum. TEI Spa’s unique OxyCalming Serum contains a concentration of ingredients that will moisturize to soothe the skin after sun exposure and facial treatments. Natural organic botanical extracts aid in the relief of irritation as they reduce redness, and inflammation to instantly deliver lasting results and comfort.
**Simply apply a few drops all over and allow to penetrate.
3. HYDRATE – You will need to up your level in hydration, in these warmer months. Sun and heat exposure with dehydrate your body internally and externally. **Adding in a hydrating mask one – two times per week for 15-20 minutes will help replenish your skin. Also, making friends with good old H2O will help replenish your body’s internal hydration level.
TEI Spa’s Hydra Skin Bio Cellulose Facial Mask is designed to increase moisture content, smooth fine lines and reduce pore size. Scientific data has proven that the use of Hydra Skin for 15 -20 minutes can provide an average of 72% increase in moisture content. Hydra Skin may decrease the appearance fine lines by an average of 22.8% and shrink pores by an average of 35.5%.
With concentrated ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera it’s the perfect recipe to aid in replenishing and repairing that sun exposed skin!!
**Did you know that you can use TEI Spa’s Sonic Spatula for added product penetration?
Well you can, over the OxyCalming Serum and over the Hydra Skin Bio-Cellulose Facial Mask to achieve maximum results! The Ultrasonic technology creates natural micro jets which pushes any product deeper in the lower layers of the skin. Maximum penetration equals maximum results!!
4. PROTECT – When in doubt apply, and reapply your sunscreen!!!
You need to protect your skin, especially after all the work we have just put into it.
Studies have shown, people do not apply enough sunscreen let alone reapply when needed. You should be applying sunscreen every 2 hours when in direct contact with the sun and applying at least one teaspoon of sunscreen to your face.
There are so many options out there with today’s technology. Be sure to choose a sunscreen that meets the needs of your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin be sure to chose an oil free matte, or if you have sensitive skin choose a chemical free formula.
My favorite chemical free sunscreen is Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 by Dermalogica.
I not only use it on myself but it’s gentle enough for my baby’s skin!!
Remember as the seasons change so will your skin!
