Angela’s Approved Guide to Summer Skin Care

It's important to focus on sun and heat protection, but also to adapt and change your regular skincare routine for the harsh UAE summer conditions”

1. Lightweight Cleansers

Throughout the day, the skin is exposed to a lot of things such as bacteria, pollution, dirt, oil on the skin and our dead skin cells. It is important then to cleanse the skin twice daily. A perfect cleanser for the summer months would be a lightweight/ water-based cleanser such as the ESSE Gel Cleanser.


2. Lightweight Moisturizer


Moisturizing the skin creates a protective layer on the skin that lasts all day, and helps to seal and lock in moisture, leaving the skin well hydrated and nourished. It’s good to use a lightweight moisturizer in the summer months that won’t be too heavy yet will give you just the right amount of moisture, like the Perris Skin Fitness Active Anti-age Face Emulsion.

3. Don’t Forget Sun-Screen
