Holidays to the sun can be just what our body needs, but they can also wreak havoc on our skin – exposure to intense sun, salt water and chlorine can leave our skin looking and feeling dry and irritated and cause pigmentation problems. Sun exposure can damage the upper layers of the dermis causing it to thin and become more likely to wrinkle. Collagen and elastin fibres start to break down, causing a loss of elasticity, contributing to the aging process.

It is very important to use a good anti-oxidant after sun exposure – I would recommend SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF gel, a serum-in-a-gel which protects skin from the range of free radicals which cause DNA mutations and damage among the integral cell types. It also accelerates cell turnover and stimulates collagen synthesis to boost skin’s structure for a firmer, brighter complexion.

The skin will also need to be hydrated through effective treatments and product use. Our jet peel is an ideal way to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin through a gentle, moisturising jet stream that cools and comforts your skin. By infusing oxygen into the deep dermis to recharge and revitalise these cells your body produces new collagen for truly effective skin rejuvenation results. SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 is also an excellent way of hydrating the skin – enriched with vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid, known to help with tissue repair, Hydrating B5 replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and appear younger.

PURIGENEX’s Collagen Mask is a fantastic way to prevent and repair skin from aging, sun damage, discolorations, and acne scarring. It boosts the skin’s own collagen integrity, to make it appear plumper, smoother, more supple, and more youthful.
