Summer Skin Secrets: Keep Your Glow All Season Long

by Vicky Grammatikopoulou

With the sun shining brighter and the days getting longer, summer is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. However, summer brings with it increased sun exposure, higher humidity, and the potential for dehydration, all of which can affect our skin. Issues such as sunburn, hyperpigmentation, acne breakouts, and dryness are all common during this time. This guide is full of Summer Skin Secrets to help you  adapt your skincare routine and effectively combat these challenges, thus maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion all season long. 



Prioritise sun protection for healthy radiant skin

1.Prioritise Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is crucial during the summer months. Prolonged sun exposure can lead to premature ageing, sunburn, and an increased risk of skin cancer.

Dr Liakas, our Medical Director, emphasises:

“Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen is non-negotiable. It should be reapplied every two hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating.”

  • Use a Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen: Choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 that offers broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. We recommend the ZO Skin Health Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30, which provides excellent protection and a smooth base for makeup. Another hero product is the Alumier Sheer Hydration SPF 40, which comes in tinted and untinted.
  • Wear Protective Clothing: Opt for lightweight, long-sleeved shirts, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses to shield your skin from the sun.
  • Seek Shade: Whenever possible, stay in the shade, especially during peak sun hours (10 AM to 4 PM).


2. Hydrate Inside and Out

Dehydration is common during the summer months, leading to dry,dull skin. To keep your skin hydrated and glowing, Nicola, our Advanced Nurse and Aesthetic Practitioner, advises:

“Hydration is key to maintaining a radiant complexion. Drinking plenty of water and using hydrating products can make a significant difference.”

  • Drink Plenty of Water: Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to maintain hydration levels.
  • Use Hydrating Skincare Products: Incorporate hydrating serums, moisturisers, and masks into your skincare routine. Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and aloe vera. We recommend the AlumierMD HydraBoost Cleanser and DIBI Milano Hydra Perfection Face Cream.
  • Try an AquaFacial: The Vie AquaFacial treatment deeply cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin, leaving you with a refreshed and radiant complexion.

3. Exfoliate Regularly

A major summer skin secret is Exfoliation, as it helps remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and promote cell turnover, resulting in smoother and brighter skin. However, be gentle to avoid irritation. Amie, our Head Aesthetician, suggests:

“Choose a gentle exfoliant suitable for your skin type and avoid over-exfoliating, as this can strip your skin of natural oils.”

  • Choose a Gentle Exfoliant: Opt for a mild exfoliant that suits your skin type. Our ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish is perfect for a gentle yet effective exfoliation.
  • Frequency: Exfoliate 1-2 times a week to maintain a healthy glow without causing sensitivity.

4. Treat Hyperpigmentation

Increased sun exposure can exacerbate hyperpigmentation and dark spots. To address this issue, Sophia, our Skin Therapist, shares her summer skin secrets:

“Incorporate brightening products with ingredients like Vitamin C and Niacinamide to even out your skin tone.”

  • Use Brightening Products: Incorporate products with ingredients like vitamin C, niacinamide, and licorice root extract to brighten and even out your skin tone. We recommend AlumierMD EverActive C&E + Peptide.Another excellent brightening and Illuminating serum AOX by ZO.
  • Professional Treatments: Consider treatments such as chemical peels or Lumecca IPL therapy to target hyperpigmentation effectively. Our Polynucleotides Treatment is excellent for reducing pigmentation and improving overall skin tone.
