Summer Series 2 – Lisa shares her secrets for glowing summer skin

During the Summer months, my essential daily skincare routine includes products that are anti-ageing and contain antioxidants and SPF protection.

I can’t get enough of Obagi Vitamin C range – my favourite being the C-Exfoliating Day Lotion (with Vitamin C) that combines the powerful combination of 10% l’ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and hyaluronic acid which is a light but intensely hydrating and smoothing formula. It’s also perfect for more sensitive skin types as a rejuvenating exfoliant because it doesn’t contain any retinol (Vitamin A). The glycolic acid contained in the lotion is known to slough off dead skin cells to reduce the signs of sun damage, hyper-pigmentation and minimise fine lines. Vitamin C enhances collagen synthesis and firmness and protects against premature ageing.

C-Exfoliating Day Lotion (with Vitamin C) is great for most skin types as a day moisturiser and goes on beautifully under makeup. What I notice is softer, smoother and more radiant skin.

As the summer months approach and sunnies are foraged from the bottom of our handbags, it’s always a timely reminder for some anti-ageing wrinkle injections around the eye area. A small amount in the frown or eye area lifts the brow, opens the eyes and softens the squints. Conservative doses can keep the crows feet at bay and maintain the delicate eye area without looking like you’ve seen a ghost, in fact… this Christmas, it’ll be our little secret.
