Cleansing & moisturising: the perfect summer regimen

The essential summer regimen consists in cleansing and moisturising the skin to counteract dryness and tightness, the appearance of wrinkles and premature expression lines, redness, and dullness.

During the summer, different factors can damage the skin’s health: higher temperatures, greater sun exposure, and dips in the pool all alter and dehydrate the skin.

Why does my skin need special care during the summer?

“In summer, the sebaceous glands increase sebum production. Together with environmental humidity, this leads to greater dehydration. As a result, in the summer, the skin needs greater hydration to ensure optimal barrier and protection functions. Skin cleansing is also fundamental, since it boosts penetration and effectiveness of the moisturising products. This way, the skin is kept in perfect condition”, states Dr Gabriel Serranodermatologist and founder of the Sesderma Laboratories.

Therefore, the essential summer regimen includes proper cleansing and hydration to avoid skin issues: “There are different skin signs that are accentuated in the summer and indicate that there is an important lack of hydrationSigns of alert are skin dryness and tightness, the appearance of premature wrinkles and expression lines, and irritation”, explains Dr Serrano.

The perfect regimen

To fight dryness, we recommend using moisturisers and follow a nourishing regimen with textures that adapt to every skin type. According to dermatologist and president of Sesderma: “This skincare regimen must be performed twice a day: in the morning and at night, before going to sleep. The first step is to cleanse the skin in depth, then apply serum, facial cream, and eye contour cream. Try to use moisturising formulas. In addition, to manage to keep the skin renewed in the summer, we recommend exfoliating the skin once a week. This accelerates natural skin turnover, thus reducing imperfections and signs of ageing, and regulating sebum production”.

This moisturising skincare regimen is essential for all skin types. “Hydration is fundamental for any skin type, at any age. Many people with oily skin avoid using moisturisers because they believe this leads to increased sebum production. This is a big mistake: optimal skin hydration helps control sebum production. Therefore, even oily skin needs daily hydration”, explains Dr Gabriel Serrano.

The power of the ocean in your skin

In order to boost and maintain natural skin hydration, Sesderma has developed the OCEANSKIN line, formulated with marine-origin active ingredients. As Dr Serrano states: “Its active ingredients, such as SES HYDRA COMPLEX, based on natural oils such as argan and avocado oil, shea butter, or kokum butter, as well as other marine-origin active ingredients such as spirulina, collagen and marine elastin, seaweed and caviar extract, restore natural skin hydration. In addition, these prevent the appearance of the signs of ageing, delivering luminosity and an instant fresh-face effect”.

To obtain the perfect skincare regimen, try OCEANSKIN Cleansing Gel, one of the most-awarded products in the company. This product cleanses, comforts, and relieves the skin thanks to its three transformation phases and its moisturising gel texture, which does not dry out the skin. Together with the Moisturising Serum and Cream, it helps regenerate the skin and restore elasticity, and it’s the perfect combination to keep the skin hydrated during the summer.
