Summer Skin Rehab
Is your skin dry and dehydrated from the long hot summer?
With cooler days and brisker mornings on the horizon, Autumn is a good time to give your skin some TLC before the party season begins.
The first step is to soothe any burnt, sore, red, sensitive damaged skin. Sun burn not only damages your DNA but also depletes collagen and elastin fibres. These effects are cumulative and increase with exposure. The results, aside from risk of cancer are sagging skin, wrinkles, pigmentation and rough patches.
Treatments to try:
If you are treating recently damaged skin, try a lotion or cream that glides onto the skin containing anti-inflammatory ingredients such as niacinamide.
CULT51 Night Cream is cooling, soothing and deeply moisturising; containing actives to reduce inflammation, comfort sensitive skin, reduce UV induced cell destruction and promote your skins natural healing process.
Repair your skin using regenerative ingredients to quench and calm. Creams rich in vitamins E repair, protect the barrier function and facilitate the regeneration of the epidermis.
Even though the weather is no longer gloriously hot, you still need to protect it from UVA and UVB rays. Make sure you are extra vigilant with any previously burnt areas as your skin will still be very sensitive. CULT51 Night Cream has a cumulative build, so the more you use it as part of your regular routine, the more effective your skins process of repair and renewal
The damaging effects of the sun can cause your skin to feel tight, and rougher to the touch. Once you have quenched your skin for a few weeks and allowed it time to recover, try a gentle exfoliator to remove all old dead skin cells – face and body.
We recommend products without microbeads, egg shells or sensitizing agents. Getting rid of dead cells helps your skin absorb moisturisers and serums more effectively.
Hyaluronic Acid is a great ingredient for its hydrating and regenerating properties.
Did you know that during the hours immediately after sun exposure, UV free radicals can still cause damage. It is important to use active ingredients during this time and also when you are sleeping or resting. When you are resting, your body is naturally repairing.
Vitamin C protects collagen fibres and strengthens your defences, facilitating collagen renewal. Vit C also assists with evening skin tone, lightening dark patches thus improving pigmentation.
Try our CULT51 Day Cream which contains SPF15, Hyaluronic Acid, vitamin C (called Asorbic Acid on our inci list), Niacinamide and many more actives; these ingredients will repair and protect your skin long term.
