Skin and hair care for warmer climes

Attention: open in a new window.  E-mail| Print | Bookmark Added: 01.03.2016, 22:02

Spring and summer are upon us, and with the departure of cold, drying air comes a new set of challenges – hotter, more humid air, the UV rays of the sun, and chlorine from the pool. From the right make-up and moisturiser to the perfect, protective hair-care product, here are some to try this season. And yes, Baz Luhrmann was right, everybody’s free to wear sunscreen.


Hair: Aveda Sun Care Range

This three-step range is an essential spring/summer hair-care survival kit, especially for those who plan to be swimming and lounging in the sun. The lightweight, water-resistant, UV-defence Protective Hair Veil spray provides invisible protection from sun exposure for up to 16 hours, minimising colour fade, damage, and dryness. The Hair and Body Cleanser then whisks away chlorine, salt, and product residue, replacing it with essential moisture. Finally, the After-Sun Hair Masque is an intensive cream masque that moisturises and restores sun-exposed hair.


For the men: Lab Series MAX LS Power V Lifting Lotion

A lightweight option designed specifically for men living in more humid climates, this lotion creates a thin veil on the skin that mimics the microstructure of the skin. It then tightens contours, lifts the appearance of skin and improves firmness and elasticity.


Make-up and sunscreen: La Mer SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid

Along with powerful UVA and UVB protectants this lightweight fluid features semi-precious tourmaline and Brazilian malachite that work together to capture green light and help enhance antioxidant benefits. Meanwhile, an array of Hollow Photonic Spheres help reflect light to create that flawless, dewy summer glow.


Skin and lips: Elemis Hydra-Balance Day Cream

Thanks to its key ingredient, hyaluronic acid, this lightweight cream is perfect for essential hydration without the facial oil slicks that are all too common in the humid, hot months. Calming meadowsweet extract has unique anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that work to prevent redness and breakouts of blemishes while reducing pore size to ensure a smooth, radiant, and shine-free complexion, perfect for that dewy, fresh spring/summer look.


Make-up and sunscreen: Clinique SPF 30 Mineral Powder Makeup

With essential built-in sun protection and a lightweight feel, this powder incorporates minerals that are essential for maintaining a healthy complexion. Best of all, it keeps high humidity and sweat at bay.
