Our skin requires different things at different times of the year here in Canada. In the summertime we need lighter weight moisturizers and more SPF protection. In the winters, we need richer moisturizers and protection from the cold elements. When switching over our products during this time of the year, keep in mind that includes our serums as well. You may have been on something like the;
Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum which is great for hydration and plumping the skin, as it rehydrates by pushing outside moisture back into the skin. If you feel like you’re not struggling for hydration anymore, you may want to try the Eminence Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum to start boosting your vitamin C to protect your skin against free radicals and the signs of aging.
Summer is a great time to up your Vitamin-C intake, as it helps to repair the skin from the damaging effects of the Sun. This vitamin is great for so many reasons, especially for after sun, for brightening, and feeding collagen.
If you’re on one of the richer moisturizers from the winter time, i.e- the Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer, or the Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream, it may be time to switch over to a lower oil version, such as the Guava Bamboo Age Defy Moisturizer, or the Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer. That is why I love Eminence so much! The line is so customizable, with options to choose from for every skin type!
This is also a great time to mention Eminence’s new Lilikoi Mineral Defense SPF collection! Defend your skin from drying environmental stressors with this all-mineral SPF sun protection line. Their newest release, reef-friendly, completely natural sun protection is a great addition to your skincare routine for a day-time product that ensures you are protected from the sun’s harmful UVA/ UVB rays and their damaging effects. Choose from the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer (SPF 33), Lilikoi Light Defense Face Primer (SPF 23), and the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen (SPF 30) for the body.
If you need help with customizing your regime, or if you have any questions, please come see us at the spa and we would be more than happy to assist you!
Happy Spring everyone!
