It’s that time of year again when we finally get to switch up our chunky knits for flowery summer dresses. Summer is here but your wardrobe isn’t the only thing you should be switching up. Your skin needs a summer switch up too and Epionce have you covered…
Summer can take its toll on our skin – more sunshine means spending more time outdoors exposing our skin to those harmful UV rays.
The good news?
Well, US skincare brand, Epionce, has finally arrived in Ireland right on time for summer skincare. The brand, which is loved by beauty editors, celeb facialists and aestheticians across the world, is a scientific skin care system and works to repair and strengthen the external skin barrier without causing any irritation – even to the most sensitive of skins.
Launched in 2002, it’s been a long wait for the brand to make its debut here in Ireland but the wait is finally over! Its mission? To support the prevention of early signs of skin-ageing as well as treat common skin concerns such as Psoriasis, Eczema, Hyperpigmentation and Rosacea.
Its founder, dermatologist, Dr Carl Thornfeldt has shared his expert advice on how to care for your skin this summer.
“Of course we should be using sun protection every day and summer is a great reminder of how to protect our skin from harm. One of my top summer skincare tips is to use a sunscreen that contains anti-inflammatory and barrier-repairing ingredients. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection of at least SPF 30 is best.”
- Refresh– The humidity and hot temperatures can contribute to some summer skin issues such as, extra oil and shine, Dr Carl says, “help reduce surface shine and blemishes with a refreshing toner”. The Epionce purifying Toner is an active, non-stripping, soothing formulation that helps control excess oil production and destructive microbes, while balancing your skin’s natural pH.
- Calm- With Higher temperatures and more time outdoors we must up our regimens hydration levels to prevent dry and sensitive skin. Dr Carl says, “It is important to hydrate extremely dry, sensitive skin with a rich, soothing cream” and least we forget H20, our new best friend. Drinking 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day can help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin,
- Fortify– When it comes to achieving that summertime glow, Dr. Carl says, “Smooth skin and improve radiance with a botanically based body lotion”. The Epionce Renewal Enriched body Lotion is formulated to help protect against dryness and chronic inflammation on the more vulnerable areas of the body.
- Protect- Stay flawlessly protected with use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen that has a light tint. The Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 provides broad spectrum protection that evens out skin tone while imparting a natural-looking healthy glow. This is a light weight, self-adjusting, blendable tint that works for most skin tones. It is wonderful under makeup or can be used alone for soft, diffuse coverage.
