The secrets of skin care in summer
During summer, it is highly unlikely to have a perfect complexion with no efforts. Most of the time, the skin is oilier or more dehydrated and irritated. There are a few factors to blame for this, and among them, we can mention the UV rays, the heat that often causes an increased production of sebum, dry wind, and even the seawater or the water in the pool. If your skin tends towards dryness, the dehydration that can occur in summer can lead to premature wrinkle occurrence, as well as skin peeling and over sensitive skin.
However, there are specific skincare rules for summer that you can follow to get glowing skin and a bright complexion, even when it’s hot outside.
Secrets of skin care in summer:
1. Use moisturising creams with SPF

3 Anti-aging serums you should try in your 30s
Skincare is what makes all the difference between a dull, prematurely aged skin and a glowing, fresh complexion, whatever your age might be. As you age, your skincare routine becomes more and more important, starting in your 30s when certain skin conditions tend to accentuate, and collagen production starts to decrease. This translates into fine lines and wrinkles, not to mention dull and lacklustre skin. Skin elasticity and glow are associated with a younger age, but we can make this last past your 20s. Our skin specialists advise women to start investing in good quality serums once they get to their 30s. More than this, keeping a healthy and balanced diet, as well as regular facials, can considerably improve the texture of your skin.
Of all the skincare products we have available for the skin on your face, the anti-aging serums are probably the most sought-after products. They have

If you’re like me, you would have noticed that ‘enzymes’ seem to be the flavour of the month for both clinic treatments and skincare products. With some enzyme based products reading more like a food label, it is difficult to separate the wood from the trees and work out if these enzyme skincare products actually do work. But, before you read on you should know that enzymes in skincare are NOT a fad, I repeat, this is not fad!
So what are enzymes anyway?
As Shannon from self.com puts it, enzymes are the chemicals that hurry up the rate at which other chemical reactions occur. These enzymes are incredibly useful in biological processes, and are also used in the food industry to speed up the ripening and tenderising process.
How do enzymes work in skincare?
Enzymes have two main functions when used in skincare formulations. Some enzymes such as fruit enzymes work to gently exfoliate the skin. Enzym
