Heat! We can’t escape it here in Dubai and with temperatures soaring to record highs of 57 degrees during Summer you can imagine the havoc it plays with your skin.
Not only does our skin have to deal with intense heat, but also humidity. Our natural mechanism to deal with heat is to sweat, but to deal with humidity is another story. The struggle of dealing with that uncomfortable sticky feeling is REAL!
Heat and moisture can force your pores to expand and increase sebum production- which leads to congestion, breakouts, oil production, more blackheads, and whiteheads. What do we do to escape the heat? AC. Although this feels amazing on your hot skin, it can cause your skin to overcompensate by drying and pulling the moisture from your skin.
There are several ways heat can affect your skin, below we discuss how the heat can affect your skin:
Even if you are a sun worshipper, direct sun exposure is extremely harmful and the primary cause of wrinkles, ageing and skin cancer. Sunburn is also detrimental and in severe cases can cause blisters, fever, nausea and vomiting.
It is vital you use sunscreen and re-apply every 2 hours. Our mineral defense sunscreen delivers broad spectrum protection against damaging UV rays. It helps guard skin against sun damage, early signs of ageing, and the breakdown of collagen to help maintain a healthy skin barrier.
Overheating can also cause heat rashes, which can cause redness, itching and can be painful. These are caused through clogged channels within the epidermis and lack of moisture retention. Heat rashes usually disappear on their own after a few days, however swelling, discharge and high fever can occur therefore it is important to monitor and consult a specialist if you face this.
Sudden changes in temperature can cause the expansion of blood vessels in the skin, causing skin redness- spider veins and inflammation can also occur. Avoid intense heat outside and inside.
Heat produces sweat and excess oil in the skin- this combination gives us what we all hate- SPOTS! Excess spots and heat exposure can clog pores and its ability to heal. To help prevent this use a cleanser twice a day to treat breakouts. Our oil-free gel cleanser exfoliates the skin for a gentle yet deep cleanse. Formulated with 0.5% salicylic acid, salix alba (willow bark extract) and niacinamide to help fight blemishes and reduce blackheads and breakouts while minimizing excess oil production.
We’re all over wearing masks for 3 years on post-Covid and it’s even more difficult to wear masks in this intense heat. The use of prolonged mask usage has resulted in a new word: MASKNE! The result of clogged pores caused by the build-up of breathing, sweating, speaking and friction. The result = irritation, breakouts, rosacea, and dermatitis. Skip the use of heavy make-up, skincare products and instead invest in products with humectants such as Hyaluronic Acid to help bind water in the skin.
Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum helps to replenish elasticity, plumpness, and hydration with our multi-correctional Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Formulated with the powerhouse ingredient Niacinamide, it helps to soften fine lines, reduces oil production, and hydrates the skin’s natural barrier. This serum delivers a long-lasting reservoir of moisture and radiance.
Our Vitamin B5 Antioxidant Moisturizer is super lightweight and helps to provide long-lasting hydration and healthy-looking skin. Skin will feel instantly quenched and radiant with powerhouse ingredients: hyaluronic acid, camelia japonica flower extract and sunflower seed oil, for a soft matte finish.
Our Hydrafacial is a great facial to pamper your skin and gives you instant radiance with no downtime!
+ Extracts, Purifies & Improves skin tone
+ Lymphatic drainage, LED Blue & Red Light
+ Nourishes the skin with antioxidants and peptides
Using Vortex-Fusion technology, the design of the Hydrafacial tips used in conjunction with the Hydrafacial serums helps to remove any buildup of dirt, bacteria, blackheads, and impurities by exfoliating and extracting whilst simultaneously providing hydration to the skin. Manual extraction and traditional facials can cause damage to the skin and result in enlarged pores, whereas, our Hydrafacial gently removes any dirt and blackheads without damaging the skin and leaves you with smaller pores and locks moisture in to leave your skin looking youthful and hydrated with a glow!
Additionally lymphatic drainage helps with removing toxins in the skin increasing circulation, reducing edema (puffiness), improving dark circles and accelerated the healing of the skin. Also combined with the Hydrafacial is LED blue and red lights:
BLUE: Is antibacterial and helps to kill any bacteria in the skin
RED: Minimises pigmentation and reduces sun damage and LED red and blue lights are used throughout the treatment.
