Summer Skin Saviours

Top Tips for Great Summer Skin From The Best Hair & Beauty Salons in West London

The summer months can be harsh on your skin, heat, humidity and harmful UV rays increase your risk of sunburn, premature skin ageing and poor skin condition – although you should ensure that you look after your skin not just during summer, but throughout the entire year.

Check out these top tips from the experts at Fresh Lifestyle Salons & Spas in Blackheath, Islington & Fitzrovia to keep your skin looking and feeling in great condition.

TIP 1: Wear a Sun Protection Factor 30-50 to protect your skin from sun damage and slow down the ageing process.. At Fresh Lifestyle Salons we recommend a high SPF sun cream all year round – not just over the summer months. 

TIP 2: Tanning greatly increases the risk of skin cancer as the sun’s ultraviolet rays destroy and damage some skin cells. Tanning also leads to premature skin ageing, sun spots and wrinkles! If you still want to look tanned, you should expose yourself to the sun in small doses, use a high SPF and ensure that you keep your skin hydrated with a moisturising product such as Aveda Stress-Fix™ Body Lotion following sun exposure. 

TIP 3: Even if you wear a high SPF cream, you may see an increase in skin pigmentation during the summer months. We highly recommend the Botanical Skin Resurfacing Facial
Reveal, which will give you a truly radiant complexion, smoother skin and to help reduce the visible signs of ageing and pigmentation. This treatment is Aveda’s alternative to microdermabrasion; all the benefits of a 30% glycolic peel without the irritation. 

TIP 4: Replenish the skin with Green Science™ Anti-Ageing Facial. Lift and firm your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with this renewing facial that combines Aveda’s clinically proven Green Science™ system with unique rejuvenating manipulations.

TIP 5: Get plenty of sleep to aid your skin’s recovery. Before you retire for the evening, slather on Tulasāra™ Wedding Masque Overnight cream. Wake up with luminous, wedding-day skin—every day. The ultra-rich creme masque brightens skin overnight, and contains a potent turmeric extract to help even the look of skin tone over time, leaving skin luminous and radiant. A powerful blend of plant stem cells and organic apricot seed oil work together to help support skin’s natural repair processes that happen at night.

TIP 6: If your lips have become dry, cracked and sore, invest in a nourishing lip balm with SPF such as the Aveda Lip Saver™. Nurture your lips with this moisturising balm containing naturally derived waxes.
