Top Tips for Great Summer Skin from Bishop’s Stortford’s Best Skin Clinic & Beauty Salon
The summer months can be harsh on your skin so check out these top tips from Bishop’s Stortford’s best skin clinic, beauty salon & spa to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
Heat, humidity and the sun’s harmful rays increase your risk of sunburn, premature skin ageing and greasy, sweaty, blocked pores – so make sure you look after your skin!
Read on to find out which treatments we recommend to ensure you look your best over summer!
TIP 1: Wear a Sun Protection Factor 30-50 to slow down the ageing process and keep your skin in optimal condition. We recommend a high SPF sun cream all year round – not just over the summer months.
TIP 2: Avoid tanning your skin but, if you MUST, make sure this is a gradual process. Tanning greatly increases the risk of skin cancer as the sun’s ultraviolet rays destroy and damage some skin cells. Tanning also leads to premature skin ageing, sun spots and wrinkles!
TIP 3: Even if you wear a high SPF cream, you may see an increase in skin pigmentation during the summer months. We highly recommend the SkinCeuticals Expert Skin Brightening Facial (60 mins (includes consultation) | £85) designed to correct hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. We offer several high-tech treatments for sun spots including IPL skin rejuvenation which can tackle single age spots or the whole face.
TIP 4: If the summer sun has left your pores clogged up and resulted in a break-outs, have an anti-bacterial LED Light Mask treatment at our skin clinic in Bishop’s Stortford.
TIP 5: If your lips have become dry, cracked and sore, invest in a nourishing lip balm with SPF.
TIP 6: Once summer is over, book in to The Skin Clinic at Urban Spa in Bishop’s Stortford for a high quality Dermalogica or Espa facial so we can clear clogged pores and prevent breakouts through expert exfoliation and extraction. Your body may also be in need of a nourishing massage – we particularly recommend the Decleor Toning & Firming Massage as well as the Decleor Leg Treatment to help with swollen, puffy legs.
