Guide to the perfect beauty routine after holidays Tips, step by step and shopping advice with specific products

Although summer officially extends to the end of September, let's face it, we all said goodbye to the summer after the last weekend in August. This means that it is now time - for almost everyone - to return to the daily routine, including our skin, which in this period needs extra pampering to regenerate and recover from the stress caused by the sea, swimming pools, sand, wind and sun at all hours of the day.

These factors can only weaken our skin which, once back to normal, will then be subject to redness, spots and other annoying side effects accompanied by a general sense of skin dryness. Restoring his normal health is therefore essential. How? Restoring skin balance and normal skin care routine.

One of the first objectives to be set upon returning is to implement a specific designed beauty routine, even before moving on to the winter one. It is essential in this sense to get back into the right rhythm by applying a moisturizer in the morning and a nourishing cream in the evening. Green light for beauty treatments like face masks, to be done a couple of times a week and weekly scrubs. Since the skin is in conditions of dehydration, it is also better to avoid all those gestures that can increase this state: prefer the shower to the bathroom and do not use too aggressive detergents.

Nutrition also plays an important part: increasing the consumption of foods containing water such as fruit or vegetables and drinking specific herbal teas with a purifying action, are actions that help restore hydration to the skin and purify it of accumulated toxins. Also pay attention to the air conditioning which favors drying of the epidermis.

That said, let's now see the step by step to follow and the right products enclosed in a mini shopping guide.

 

1. EXFOLIATE

Exfoliation is always important, but it is especially necessary when you are looking to regenerate your skin after a hot and long season. A late summer scrub on the body and face will in fact serve to promote a deeper cleansing that acts on impurities, such as make-up residues, soap, limestone, bacteria. In this way you will make the skin smoother, softer and above all brighter.
