CODAGE firmly believes in the reality of cutaneous biorhythm and the need to provide a season-adapted skincare. In the summertime, the sun and the heat are your skin’s number one priorities: exposing your skin to sunlight and summer heat without proper preparation equals to exposing it to irreversible damages. Rashes, dry skin, lack of comfort and premature skin aging are to be expected without anticipation of sun exposure. To avoid these mistakes, CODAGE is keeping you up to date on the specific needs of your skin during this summer season.
Spring to summer transition: what happens to my skin?
- Dehydration: the skin does not have the ability to produce water; therefore, it is the hydrolipidic barrier that ensures its hydration by holding the water inside the tissues. When exposed to heat, this protective shield loses its power: skin is then dehydrated, tugging and does not feel comfortable. The cure? Drinking lots of water and provide your skin with the right hydrating care products to compensate for this water loss.
- Oily skin: as a result of this heat-linked water loss, the cutaneous metabolism increases its sebum production. Add this to unavoidable summer perspiration and you can say hello to disgraceful oily skin. Then again: hydration combined to mattifying products are key.
- Sunburn: these are the perfect illustration of how unprepared sun exposure can damage your skin. The face especially is a delicate zone that deserves extra care in the matter. Choose an adapted SPF, do not overexpose and focus on heat shield and soothing, antioxidating and hydrating care products.
- Wrinkles, dark spots, rashes: there is a certain kind of sun radiations that is responsible for allergic reactions, small irritations or even hyperpigmentation spots on the skin. On another level, dehydrated skin is more likely to get wrinkles and fine lines. Complexion gets dull and uneven… Far from ideal sunkissed summer skin! That also explains the need for summer adapted skincare.
