Our Spa Manager, Phoebe Wilson, shares with you her Summer Skincare tips.
Phoebe has been in the Spa & Beauty industry for a number of years. Phoebe has worked with Elemis products for over 5 years and has shared her tips for keeping your skin looking fabulous.
Changes in weather and temperature can cause skin to dry and lack radiance. By exfoliating the skin you keep it looking fresh and smooth by removing dead layers of cells and revealing fresh plump skin. Try the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel (£33), which contains papaya and pineapple to gently nibble away dead skin.
Moisturise your skin morning and evening to keep it supple and help protect against harsh winds. We recommend Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich (£82), which contains powerful seaweeds, cocoa and sunflower oils to plump, hydrate and restore the skin. For the evening, try the Elemis Peptide 4 Night Cream-Oil (£49), which supports the skin’s renewal process while you sleep, containing Tera Peptide and night-scented stock oil. In a test, 100% of users agreed their skin looked rested and 99% agreed it looked five years younger!
Layer a serum or oil beneath your moisturiser. We recommend an oil : try Elemis Superfood Facial Oil (£45). Containing over 20 anti-oxidant and superfood ingredients including flax seed, lemon, zinc and even broccoli seed oil, it truly feeds the skin and ensures it is plumper and more radiant.
• Be Healthy
The life is busy for everyone but especially for mums, so it’s important to take time for yourself to re-charge and relax. Run a warm bath and concentrate on relaxation breathing to lower stress levels instantly. Switch your usual tea and coffee for a lemon and ginger herbal tea. – lemon will cleanse and energise while warming ginger will help alleviate muscular aches. We also recommend relaxing in a sauna and steam room for 10 minutes each, followed by an Elemis 60-minute Body Nectar Nourishing Frangipani Wrap (£60), a warming Deeper than Deep Hot Stone Massage (£75) or a Biotec Facial ( from £65).
Use SPF throughout the year. Even when the sun isn’t shining, powerful UVA and UVB rays will penetrate and damage the skin, so if you’re planning a fresh countryside walk or outdoor activity, always apply a SPF to your skin. We recommend Elemis Liquid Layer SPF30 (£30) – this super-light texture provides perfect year-round protection.
