Treat your skin to a vitamin bomb
Having flawless skin in this weather is pure art. With all the sunburn, dry skin, puffiness and redness, we should pump our skin with vitamins that will keep it in its best shape no matter what.
Our number one favourite product is Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enrich Face Base under makeup, which includes a whole mixture of beneficial ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B, squalane, shea butter and hyaluronic acid for skin hydration and wrinkle reduction. This non-oily base not only nourishes the skin, but it leaves it soft, refreshed, moisturized and perfectly foundation-ready.
Fade the age spots
Hand in hand with sunny weather goes unwanted pigmentation. Sunspots also called age spots may vary in size but most of them can be effectively treated at home. Institut Esthederm Intensive Vitamin C cream treats hyperpigmentation, uneven skin and fights against signs of ageing such as wrinkles, collagen loss and dry skin. A big plus of this cream is that it does not include any comedogenic ingredients, so it can be applied also on oily and problematic skin.
Fight against skin ageing
Naturally, the most effective way how to deal with sunspots, wrinkles and signs of skin ageing is to delay their appearance and protect our skin at all costs. This all starts with an SPF 50 applied regularly on your skin. The harmful UVB rays (B for burn) and UVA (A for ageing) follow us everywhere. The truth is the UVA rays that cause skin ageing reach Earth’s surface all the time, through the clouds, in the shadow, during the rain and it also penetrates the glass so you are not safe even behind the window. In this case, you might find La Roche-Posay Anthelios Refreshing Mattifying Facial Spray with SPF 50 very handy. This lightweight refreshing facial spray can be applied anytime during the day without smudging your makeup and it will effectively protect your skin from UV rays.
Our tip: Always check for some nice free gift with purchase or special offer for sunscreens while shopping at Notino.
Exfoliate for a glow
With all the sweat, dead cells and dirt from the urban jungle most of us live in, good skin exfoliation needs to become a part of your weekly skin routine. Origins GinZing™ Refreshing Scrub Cleanser cleans the skin deep down and gets rid of all the dirt so your skin can soak in all the nourishing ingredients from your favourite beauty products. Thanks to the caffeine included, it also brightens the skin and leaves it radiant and silky smooth.
Protect your crown
Well, you have guessed it. Our hair is as vulnerable to sun damage as our skin is. If it is exposed to the sun, the harmful UVA and UVB rays may harm the cuticle (the outside cover of the hair). Multifunctional Kérastase Soleil Crème UV Sublime cream helps easily protect your hair from sun rays and also damaging chlorine and salt water. The cream includes UV filters, vitamin E and nourishing coconut water that hydrate the hair fibres, prevent frizz and hair breakages.
