Now I know you have baking and frying your skin and hair all summer, and by now your skin is over dried, burnt, or worse! Not to worry though, you can still counteract that damage and prevent further damage if you act now. Follow these simple steps, and you skin will be glowing with radiance instead of uv radiation!
Your face has probably had more exposure to the sun/chlorine/salt than any other part of your body, and therefore has most likely had the most damage. I would recommend altering your skincare regimen to include CALMING face wash, moisturizer, etc. (Yes, the same type of product you would use to treat rosacea symptoms!) I really like the UltraCalming Kit from DERMALOGICA. With ingredients including oat, cucumber, aloe, and lavender extracts to calm the skin and Acetyl Tetrapeptide-15 and Red Hogweed extract to target inflammation, reduce pain sensation, and restores tissue integrity, this is the ideal summer damage treatment kit. TIP: My favorite item in this kit is the UltraCalming mist. I carry it with me and use a light mist over my face whenever I am feeling dry and/or irritated and it instantly calms!

DON'T FORGET to top this off with a really good quality sunscreen! It's August and the sun is at its strongest all year, so try to use at least an SPF 30. DERMALOGICA has another great product in this regard...the WaterBlock Solar Spray SPF 30 with vitamins a, c, and e. Its great because you can reapply as needed throughout the day without any hassle. This and the UltraCalming Mist are my two late summer essentials!
