Summer Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin Over 50

As summer approaches, it’s time to revisit and revamp your skincare routine. For us women over 50, the change in season calls for adjustments that not only protect the skin but also enhance its natural beauty.

  1. Prioritize Sun Protection

The most crucial aspect of any summer skincare routine is sun protection. The sun’s UV rays can accelerate skin ageing, causing wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Here’s how to shield your skin effectively:

 Use a Broad-Spectrum SPF: Choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 that offers broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Apply it generously on your face, neck, and any other exposed areas. Remember to reapply every two hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating.

 Incorporate SPF in Your Skincare: Opt for a moisturizer or foundation with built-in SPF for added protection. The Antarctic Sun Defence with SPF 50 not only provides sun protection but also keeps your skin hydrated. 

  1. Switch to Lighter Moisturisers

Summer heat and humidity can make heavy creams feel greasy. Transition to lighter, moisturiser that hydrate without clogging pores is really important.

Prebiotic Moisturising Cream: Products like our Prebiotic Moisturising cream offer deep hydration with a lightweight feel, perfect for keeping your skin cool and comfortable in the heat. This moisturiser also protects the skin barrier and supports healthy microbiome function, so that your skin can have a healthy glow. 

  1. Focus on Hydration

Keeping your skin and body hydrated is essential during summer.

Drink Plenty of Water: Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day to maintain skin elasticity and flush out toxins.

Hydrating Serums: Use a serum with hyaluronic acid to attract and retain moisture in your skin. Our Rose Youth Elixir provides a burst of moisture, leaving your skin plump and youthful. It also contains Bakuchiol (it doesn’t make your skin sun sensitive) and rose oil which have anti-ageing benefits to help you achieve rejuvenated skin. 

  1. Gentle Exfoliation

Exfoliation is key to removing dead skin cells and promoting a radiant complexion, but over-exfoliating can lead to sensitivity, especially in summer.

Exfoliate Wisely: Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week. Look for products with mild exfoliating agents like aloe vera or fruit enzymes. Our Hydraterende reiniger is perfect for mature skin, offering a smooth and refreshed look without irritation or leaving your skin dry.

  1. Adapt Your Makeup Routine

Summer calls for a fresh, natural look. Here’s how to adjust your makeup routine:

Lightweight Foundation: Swap your heavy foundation for a lightweight BB or CC cream that provides coverage and sun protection.

Cream-Based Products: Use cream blushes and eyeshadows as they blend seamlessly into the skin and withstand heat better than powder products.

Minimalist Approach: Embrace a minimalist makeup approach. A touch of tinted moisturiser, a swipe of mascara, and a dab of lip balm can enhance your natural beauty while keeping your skin comfortable.

  1. Healthy Lifestyle Tips

Your lifestyle significantly impacts your skin’s health. Here are some summer-specific tips:

Balanced Diet: Eat a diet rich in antioxidants, such as berries, leafy greens, and nuts, to fight free radicals and promote healthy skin. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish like salmon also help maintain skin elasticity.

Regular Exercise: Engage in moderate exercise like walking, swimming, or yoga. Exercise increases blood flow, which nourishes skin cells and keeps them vibrant.

Adequate Sleep: Ensure you get 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night. Sleep is crucial for cell repair and regeneration, giving your skin a fresh, youthful appearance.

Embracing the summer glow is all about adjusting your skincare routine to protect and enhance your skin’s natural beauty. With the right products and lifestyle choices, you can enjoy a radiant, healthy complexion all season long.

Remember to stay hydrated, protect your skin from the sun, and opt for lightweight, hydrating skincare and makeup products.

Here’s to a beautiful, sun-kissed summer!
