SUMMER – SUN – SUNSHINE, SKIN THAT FEELS GOOD WITH FILSUISSE.


Summer is approaching and temperatures are soaring – and so is our good mood. We're enjoying more time outside and letting the sun shine on our faces. 

I receive a lot of questions about skincare during the summer, and to ensure that you radiate along with the sun, I've put together some of my tips for you here.


SUN PROTECTION IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST.

My daily skincare regimen includes applying sun protection on a daily basis starting in the spring. Because I want my skin to feel good in the morning too, I use FilSuisse as soon as I get up. Then I apply a bit of sun protection and begin my make-up routine.

One great side effect of this is that by using the gentle FilSuisse peel I tan more evenly from the morning throughout the day.

But when I want to lie in the sun, the gentle sunscreen also serves as a good sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF 30 or SPF 50), which I reapply several times throughout the day in order to stay protected.


SUNSCREEN WRAPS AROUND YOUR SKIN LIKE A FILSUISSE.

This is essential because you want to protect your skin against harmful UV rays. But it also means that in addition to protecting your skin outwardly, it also acts as a sealant. This prevents your skin from breathing and excreting, which is an invitation to spots and other skin blemishes to appear.


CLEANSING IS ESSENTIAL.

Another factor that comes into play during the summer in addition to sunscreen that seals your skin is the «sweat factor». This causes our skin to become sticky and the pores to clog. The most important thing for avoiding the stress of blemishes and allowing your skin to recover from sunbathing is to cleanse it.


YOUR DAILY FILSUISSE BEDTIME REGIME.

Here's what I recommend you do right before going to bed: Maintain and cleanse your face, throat, chest, shoulders and neck with FilSuisse so your skin can breathe cleanly and freely, while also keeping your skin hydrated.

It doesn't matter which FilSuisse option you choose.


AFTER A BIT OF SUN, IT'S TIME FOR BED - OR BETTER YET, A PARTY!

Our routines are different when we're on holiday. During the day we enjoy lying in the sun or going for a swim, we come back from a climb or a hike, and then it's time to freshen up.

Not to get ready for bed, but rather for dinner and then a party.

My holiday maintenance routine with FilSuisse

- Applying FilSuisse in the morning allows me to be carefree, ensuring my skin will feel good all day. In the morning I use Moisturizing

- Then I apply sunscreen with a high sun protection factor, at least SPF 30

- I put more on from time to time, especially after going in the water

- After spending some time in the sun, I shower and get ready for the evening

- Before I go to bed, I use Anti-Aging


AN ADDITIONAL TIP FOR OILY SKIN.

If you have somewhat oily skin and tend to get spots, I have a wonderful solution for you.

After you've laid out in the sun, I recommend you use Moisturizing to remove any residual sunscreen as well as dirt and sweat from your skin. Then, before you go to bed, cleanse and maintain your skin with Skin Clear.


WHAT ABOUT AFTER SUN PRODUCTS?

In principle, of course, there's no reason not to use an after sun product. You should choose the one you think is best. I'd apply it right after lying out in the sun, and then I recommend using a FilSuisse product right before you go to bed in order to maintain and cleanse your skin.

I prefer an aloe vera gel over an after sun product because it cools and soothes your skin, and to me it feels better.


THIS RULE APPLIES TO EVERYONE: DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE A SUNBURN!

If you get a sunburn, please do NOT use FilSuisse wipes.

My secret tip in this case as well is to use a gel with a high concentration of aloe vera. This will soothe your skin, and the sunburn will heal more quickly. If you have a serious burn, you should consult a doctor. Once your skin is fully healed you can start using FilSuisse again as usual.


POWERFUL FACTS:

  • The ideal time to cleanse your skin is in the evening after you've been in the sun, as sunscreen acts as a sealant to your skin and often leads to skin irritation. Skin cleansing is particularly important here!
  • More even tanning, as your skin is free from skin flakes and dirt
  • Top up, especially before applying self-tanners. Your skin will tan more evenly and won't appear blotchy.
  • Fewer clogged pores, which can lead to skin irritation when you perspire

I hope you enjoy your time in the sun and that your skin feels great.
