Live beautifully: our top tips this summer for healthy-looking skin for life

Posted on July 4, 2018

You only get one skin in your life. Whilst you can’t hide from the sun, you can reduce its effects by replenishing your vitamin A and using an SPF daily. Live beautifully with radiant, healthy-looking skin for life.

Did you know that even on a cloudy day in the UK, the sun is impacting your skin? Any area of skin exposed to sunlight has a vitamin A deficiency. Most people only think of sun protection when they are on holiday but it’s important to be aware of the effects of sunlight upon your skin each day – a shortage of Vitamin A leads to serious skin problems that people often mistake for ageing and sun damage.

During the summer months there are several different ways that we can support you in the quest to live beautifully with healthy-looking skin for life. Read on for our top tips!

Use an SPF daily

We’ve already said it but it is worth repeating… any exposed skin leads to a vitamin A deficiency. It’s important to also consider sunburn being burnt by the sun can increase the risk of skin cancer. In the UK we really should be protecting our skin all year round – sadly many people just don’t take the time to think about skin protection!

An SPF should be worn throughout the year, not just when it’s sunny. Fortunately, it is now common to include SPF in makeups so you can get pretty andprotected at the same time.

We personally recommend jane iredale, which is available at our salon. Jane formulated the first SPF mineral base over 20 years ago when it was not common to put sunscreen in makeup. Using this make-up will enhance your natural beauty whilst helping reduce the damaging effects of UV rays.

Another fantastic product available at Principal Beauty is RAD, a light and creamy SPF 15 sunscreen formulation from Environ Skin Care. Unlike most sun creams it also contains essential antioxidants that work together with the sun reflectors and absorbers to protect face and body skin from the damaging effects of the sun and harsh environmental factors.

This is a must have product to have on hand throughout the year.

Tackle your vitamin A deficiency everyday

Due to light exposure most adults have a vitamin A deficiency.

There are several simple ways pioneered by Environ Skin Care that tackle this deficiency and help your skin repair the damage caused by the sun. Vitamin A is the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ Skin Care philosophy. By replenishing the vitamin A in your skin each day it will appear healthier and more resilient.

Firstly, you can normalise your skin with the Skin EssentiA or Youth EssentiA Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM range of moisturisers from Environ. As official Environ partners, you can get these products at Principal Beauty. Using a moisturiser like this will help improve your skin’s overall wellbeing and begin to replenish your vitamin A.

There are other Environ products that help target specific problems and enhance your skin. We can help you develop a skin care routine that is perfect for your skin.

Replenish vitamin A with our luxury facials

Visit Principal Beauty and treat yourself to one of our Environ Skin Care anti-ageing facials.

We particularly recommend the Active Vitamin Treatment which is packed with nourishing ingredients that will leave your skin looking radiant. The advanced technology uses sound waves and small electrical pulses to drive not only vitamin A but also vitamin C and other anti-oxidants into the deep and lower layers of the skin.

It’s the kind of treatment that is effective at addressing sun damage, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and premature ageing.

One of the Environ slogans is to live beautifullyby helping people realise the negative impact of vitamin A deficiency. It’s something we fully support – we want all of our customers to be able to live beautifully with healthy-looking skin for their whole lives.
