Hi Everyone 👋🏼
I hope y 'all are enjoying this fine weather we are having, long may it last! Due to the fact that summer has finally arrived (yeah!) and many of you will be heading off on your holidays or better yet having a stay-cation here on our lovely Emerald Isle - either way you will be exposing your skin to the sun. ️
So, today I want to share with you some helpful tips on how you can protect, prevent, prepare & repair not only your skin but also your little ones' skin from the harsh rays of the sun.
One of the many reasons why I love Guinot Professional Skin Care is because of the variety of products they has to offer . Within their range they have a fabulous collection of sun care products known as "Sun Logic". I'm hoping we all know of the dangers the sun has on our skin and why we should always be wearing an SPF but what is equally as important is knowing the strength (SPF) to be using.
Did you know that your skin reacts differently to the sun, based on your skin tone, hair colour and skin reactivity?
Here is a quick helpful guide on what SPF you should be using:
☀ very light skin tones that are extremely sensitive, burn easy, and have difficulty tanning (Kids should always be included in this category) = SPF 50
☀ light skin tone that is sensitive & may burn frequently = SPF 30/50
☀ med/dark skin tones occasional sunburn, tans easy = SPF 20
One of the key reasons why this range is super advanced is; it not only does the job of protecting us from the UVA/UVB rays but it's unique quality allows it to protect us from "blue light"which actually comes from artificial sources of light such as our mobile phones, computer screens any electronic appliances that sheds light your skin will be protected....impressive! ️
When you breathe in the tropical scents that this range has to offer, all you need to do is close your eyes and your are instantly transported away to the Caribbean Islands - they smell divine! They also come in a variety of different textures and after trying them ALL, the couple that I was immediately drawn to were these beauties:
SELF TANNERS ☀
I'm a girl who loves a good fake tan and their gradual tans are fab, they are either cream based or gel (face included ). They will give you that bronzed Goddess show stopper look and also they have the ability to keep you skin nourished and hydrated so it looks silky and smooth.
ANTI-AGE DRY OIL ☀
This oil is in a spray bottle....Handy and has an SPF 50, so after you apply this oil your skin, it looks instantly glossy and sun kissed. It 's a dry oil so if your hitting the beach the sand won't stick, life saver!
BODY MIST ☀
This is in a spray bottle too so it's so handy for those hard to reach areas or ideal for kids. It's quick, efficient and will protect your babies from the sun giving you peace of mind. That pool can look so exciting for the kids - so you gotta be fast on your feet getting the factor on them - the quick mist is ideal!
These are basically 30 capsules you take for a month prior to exposing your skin. They are loaded with vitamin A and will basically prepare you skin for the heat . Bye bye prickly heat rashes 👋🏼👋🏼 you will tan easier and your skin will stay tanned for longer!
And lastly my final recommendation is from our beautiful Guinot Facials range. The ultimate luxury facial to go for is the Hydradermie Langue Vie Soleil. This machine based facial will prepare the skin before sun exposure which is guaranteed to maintain youthfulness and will prepare the skin for tanning. Ideally two applications BEFORE your holiday and two AFTER to repair and regenerate the skin from the sun - it will help smooth and restore hydration.
All of these Products & Treatments are available right now, here at The Salon Howth. We hope to see you all soon and in the meantime make sure to stay safe in the sun & most of all enjoy!
