How To Save Your Skin & Hair After The Summer Season Is Over


I am pretty
sure that summer has left you with a bunch of great memories – sleepless
nights on the beach, endless parties, glowing sun-kissed skin and the sweetest question, that still echoes in your head
“Where
is my next piña colada?!”
Nevertheless, if I ask your skin how it feels
after the sunniest season is over, it will definitely answer “Well, not my
best…” But, hey, lovely – have no worries! We are here to help!

Let’s go through some of the most common post-summer skin issues and ideas how to deal
with them.

Hyperpigmentation

If your sun
freckles are not going away and you don’t like the idea of them staying forever
(I personally do – I think sun freckles are super cute!) vitamin C will even
your skin tone and help you get rid of dark spots. Vitamin C
protects your skin from free radicals, maintaining its youthful look. It also
reduced UVB damage, lightens hyperpigmented areas and boosts collagen synthesis
(active collage synthesis means more elasticity, firmness and strength).

La Mav’s Daily Brightening Serum is a highly concentrated Vitamin-C serum that improves skin’s clarity and boosts radiance. Formulated with Bearberry extract and Melissa officinalis extracts that have been shown to promote healthy, glowing and evenly toned skin; our brightening serum will help to even skin coloration and tone of discoloration and lifestyle damage. Daily use will also help counter pigmentation while strengthening collagen and elastin for luminous and younger looking skin.

Dry Skin

“On a scale of 1-10 of
flattering-ness I have to say that dry skin does not measure up very well.
Actually, it very much sits around the 1-2 mark on the scale (along with
Monday’s)”

Well, I
couldn’t agree more with Yadira.

Unfortunately,
one of worst side effects from excess sun exposure, chlorinated pools and
too-many-piña-coladas is reptile-like skin (I know this comparison sounds a bit
disturbing, but please – touch your legs and tell me I am wrong…) Here is where
a good, deeply moisturizing body lotion steps in. I am not talking about a
lotion, full of 
petroleum byproducts that will provide only temporary relief – I am talking about an organic one, full of rich oils and bio-active
ingredients, that will actually help your skin regenerate and restore its softness and elasticity.

La Mav’s Nourish Body Moisturizer is a moisture-locking blend of beautiful organic ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Oil and Aloe Vera Leaf Juice. It hydrates dry, dehydrated and neglected skin while restoring and maintaining the moisture barrier of the skin to improve skin tone. La Mav’s Body Lotion is ideal for skin that is dehydrated, dry, neglected and sensitive. For even better results you can combine it with La Mav’s Coffee Bean Body Scrub that gently exfoliates your skin, leaving it smooth and ready to absorb all nutrients from the lotion.

Sadly, it’s
not just the skin on your legs, right? If recently, you have been finding it
particularly hard to get that oh-so-flawless-look when applying your makeup,
I’ll tell you why – your skin needs water! And what softens rough skin best? – A
good, rich moisturizer! Autumn is the perfect season to start the transition to
more nourishing creams – creams that lock moisture in and deliver important
nutrients to your skin, so it can regenerate faster and maintain its balance
during the colder seasons ahead.

Oh, and have you thought about switching to 
cream cleansers? Non-foaming
cleansers are less likely to over dry your skin, because they are enriched with
oils that soften and hydrate. Did I mention they feel super nice and
luxurious on your skin!?  

Damaged Hair

While you
were having “fun in the sun” there was one part of you that was definitely not feeling its best – your hair. Apart from the usual summer favorites “salt, sand and sun”,
most likely, your locks also got the-not-so-sexy-and-exciting split ends and
brittleness. What can you do to fix this? Two things – see your hair dresser
for a quick trim and add some natural oils to your hair care routine. 

My favorite post-summer hair saving oil is Jojoba oil. Thanks to its waxy like properties, jojoba oil forms a thin protective layer around the hair strand, that keeps the water locked in, maintaining your locks hydrated and healthy. I use it as split end sealing serum and I swear by it – my hair has never been so shiny, manageable and strong! Be careful with the quantity though and focus on the lengths (if you want to avoid weighting your hair down). Jojoba oil is also famous for having long-shelf life (without 
nasty preservatives!) which makes it totally worth the money.

PS: And
don’t grieve over the fact that the summer is already gone! Sadness causes
wrinkles. Besides that, another even more exciting beach season is coming!
