Must Have Products for Summer

Prodermal Team Must-Have Products For Summer

Summer is nearly here – the sun is shining, the weather is getting warmer and we are all looking forward to the end of year holiday break. We asked the Prodermal Team what their must-have products are for summer skin and put together their top answers:

Sunscreen. No surprise that sunscreen is on the list!. Recommended to wear 365 days a year, sunscreen should be the staple product of any skin care routine. Sunscreens have come a long way from the thick, oily creams of the past and are now formulated into moisturisers, makeup, body lotions and as stand alone products. The formulations are more advanced, refined and easy to use. Our team favourites include: anything from the new Coola Suncare rangeASAP Hydrating Defence SPF50, Cosmedix Peptide Rich Defence SPF50.

Serums. Including a hydrating or calming serumwill help keep summer loving skins hydrated and soothed. Our team picked ASAP Super B and C. The Super B Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide to both hydrate and calm skin whilst the Super C Serum will help to protect against environmental aggressors from time in the sun and help to calm redness. Another team favourite PCA Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum or Cosmedix Surge. Both perfect for hydrating post sun skin. To help combat any pigmentation from too much sun our team chose Aspect Pigment Punch+ as their go to serum.

Nourishing night treatment. Giving your skin some TLC at night is one of the best ways to keep the summer glow happening. Our two must haves – Aotea Harakeke Seed Oil Night Cream. Soothing and nourishing after a day in the sun, and Cosmedix Resync Revitalising Night Cream – deeply hydrating and revitalises the skin overnight.

Lighter moisturiser. For some skins swapping to a lighter moisturiser as the weather heats up can prevent the skin from feeling too oily or clogged. The team’s two must-haves are Aspect Sheer Hydration, an extremely hydrating and anti clogging moisturiser without the heaviness and Cosmedix Shineless Moisturiser which reduces shine and hydrates whilst controlling excess oil.

Use gentler retinols. Heat and sun can make any skin a little more sensitised. So if you are using a retinol it is worth considering a swap to a gentler retinol formulation or a retinol alternative product in summer. As retinol can naturally cause some sensitivity, using a gentle formulation will help to ensure you still get the skin benefits but without added irritation. Our team will be using – Cosmedix Bakuchiol Complete. A plant based retinol alternative serum that delivers the same benefits of retinol without the irritation. Cosmedix Serum 16. Designed for dry or sensitive skins, the formulation is gentle enough to help prevent too much irritation whilst delivering close to prescription strength benefits. Our caution: Retinol is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women or highly reactive skins.

Pre-party treatments. Party season is upon us. Christmas parties, Work parties, New Year parties, summer barbeques or no-reason-at-all parties! To keep our skin glowing, fresh and party ready, the Prodermal team loves the following products. Cosmedix Glow Mask. The perfect summer pre-party fix. Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask. Gently exfoliates and hydrates to reveal smooth, glowing skin. Revitalash. For the perfect brows and eyelashes!

Everyday gentle cleanser. Cleansing is the first step to great skin. Using a gentle cleanser in summer will not only help remove all the day’s impurities but will hydrate, soothe and set your skin up ready to receive all the nourishing serums and moisturisers. The Prodermal team is using – ASAP Gentle Cleansing Gel. Perfect for every skin type and condition. Cosmedix Benefit Clean. An extra-gentle gel cleanser that will soothe and hydrate the skin. Aspect Purastat 5 Cleanser. One of Aspect’s most popular products, this cleanser will gently exfoliate, cleanse and hydrate the skin all without causing irritation.

Neck and Decolletage treatment. With warmer weather comes flirty summer dresses, tank tops and togs. The neck and decolletage is on display but it is also one of the most delicate and first to show signs of ageing. Protecting this vulnerable area is essential in summer. Always use sunscreen when in the sun. Other targeted treatments we will be using include PCA Skin Perfecting Neck and Decollete. Targeting sagging, loose skin and lines, this cream will hydrate and revitalise the neck and chest area. Definitely on our must have list! Another must have is Cosmedix Illuminate and Lift. Firms the skin and helps reduce age spots and pigmentation.

Our last must-have is a special mention.The Omnilux LED mask. New to Prodermal and our team is already loving this easy to use device. Omnilux is the world leader in medical grade LED devices. Providing professional treatment results at home this is one of the team’s must-haves for summer. Regular use will help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce redness and improve overall tone and skin firmness. An investment in skin health.
