Healthy summer skin goes beyond a golden glow - it means ensuring that our skin is being protected against short- and long-term damage, as well as actively improving skin health. These are the top three goodies you won't want to face the summer without...
Our top pick is the Daily UV Defence SPF50, which provides effective, broad-spectrum protection with a light, non-greasy feeling on the skin (if a sun cream is greasy, it won't get used - or definitely not as often as it should). To ensure this product goes above and beyond, we've also included vitamin B2 and Superox-CTM (the world's richest source of vitamin C) to help reduce the signs of age spots, protect against free radical damage, smooth the skin and improve radiance.
For those of us who want to do the absolute best for our skin (especially important if you have fair skin, go on holidays, or spend a lot of time outdoors), you can help to support skin's environmental defence with the Tan & Defend Skin Supplement - suncream's sidekick, with patented ingredient NutroxSunTM: a combination of citrus and rosemary extracts.
You will have noticed that despite all the talk of skin's oiliness and shine during the summer, the skin on our arms, legs, feet and hands are often left feeling dry, thanks to a cocktail of air conditioning, chlorine, salt water, air travel and sun exposure. Remedy dry, uncomfortable, lacklustre skin with the luxurious, fast-absorbing Replenish Body Butter, packed with shea and cocoa butters to moisturise, phytoestrogens to help re-densify skin and REFORCYL to improve skin's firmness, wrinkle depth, elasticity and smoothness.
