The Re-Birth Issue: A Post-Summer Skincare and Wellness Guide to Get Back on Track
It feels like yesterday when we were planning our holiday destination for this summer, savoring the exact moment we would send that last office email and set our OOO automatic reply for the upcoming days and already envisioning ourselves on a digital-detox week cocooned by the sound of waves. And then, in a blink of an eye, here comes the end of summer. As much as we enjoyed our holidays, let’s face it, they can be a stressful time for our skin and body.
Hot temperatures, hours spent sunbathing, sun-soaked boozy brunches, a dip in the pool and a swim in the sea later, our body and skin start to show the side effects of the summer season. Think about, for example, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, dry skin and messed-up digestion.
But don’t worry, with a little extra TLC and our tips, you will be able to restore a balanced skin and health routine and to fully enjoy those wonderful summer memories!
FIRST AND FOREMOST: THE CLEANSING ACT
The best place to start on your road to recovery is with a gentle and mild cleansing routine.

NEVER CEASE TO EXFOLIATE
