Summer Skin SOS
Hot weather, air travel and sunscreen can upset our skin in the summer. We set out to solve the most common complaints.
Q: After a long flight, my skin feels so tight and dry. What can I do?
Humidity in the cabin is far lower than we're used to at sea level, leading to dehydration. Start defending against this before your journey even starts by hydrating and fortifying the skin with customer favourite Superglow Serum before take-off.
It contains powerful humectants including Hyaluronic Acid to attract and retain moisture and Vitamin C antioxidants to scavenge free radicals, helping protect skin from environmental damage. Light and breathable, Superglow Serum also works well under any make-up you might choose to wear.
Then, during your flight, make sure you drink lots of water. The Aerospace Medical Association recommends about 250ml for every hour you are in the air to combat the dehydrating effects of high altitude.
Consider options such as eye drops and nasal sprays to help prevent that dry, scratchy feeling, and keep your lips cared for with our multi-award-winning Rose Hydrabalm. Nourishing natural ingredients including Rose Hip Oil and Beeswax lock moisture in and keep lips beautifully smooth, whatever the altitude.
Rehydrate and replenish when you arrive at your destination with the light yet intensive moisture surge of Radiance Restoring Rose Oil.
A potent blend of Rose Otto, Rose Hip and Jojoba oils have a similar profile to your natural sebum, and bring instant relief and softness to dry and irritated skin.
Q: Wearing sunscreen always gives me breakouts. What do you suggest?
It's essential to protect your skin from the sun. But the ingredients that prevent sunscreen being dissolved by perspiration can also occlude the skin, blocking pores and creating lumps and bumps. Combat this by cleansing carefully every day, even if you don't wear make-up.
Total Lift Off will help keep your skin clear. Our micellar water cleanser for face and lashes - powered by botanical Meadowfoam Seed Oil - effectively removes makeup and sunscreen residue, supports skin's natural resilience and gently promotes cell turnover.
We also offer a 100ml travel size bottle that's perfect for your travels.
Q: Any tips for looking less red and shiny?
Cool down and refresh your complexion and mood with one spritz of refreshing Rose Hydramist, for face and decolletage.
With the charming natural scent of Rose Otto, it's an instant pick-me-up on humid days - and perfectly sized for your handbag.
