There is a lot to love about summer: dream vacations, long days spent soaking up the sun by the pool or on the beach, warm nights, and delicious food. But as with any good time, what comes next is not always as enjoyable (hello, hangover). Since we won’t be sacrificing our fun in the sun, CASSINE’s experts have curated a selection of tools ,treatments ( and steps) to soothe, revitalize, and renew so that you can move towards autumn sporting your best skin ever.
Step 1: Hydration
Step 2: Masking Magic
Step 3: Skin is IN
The summer heat, plus increased sun exposure and constant air conditioning can wreak havoc on even the healthiest of skins, which is why you might be finding your skin feeling dehydrated this time of year. Luckily, hyaluronic acid, a hero ingredient no matter the season, is especially useful to treat parched skin. Naturally occurring in the body, it holds 1,000x its weight in water and won’t clog pores for those with oily skin. Opt for serums loaded with the stuff, like our Province Apothecary Hydrating + Rejuvenating Serum which replenishes your skin’s health while hydrating and stimulating skin on a cellular level. High in antioxidants and powerful anti-inflammatory oils, Neroli and Frankincense reduce the appearance of fine lines and improves skin tone.
For a hyaluronic-acid-packed serum that also stimulates the skin’s own renewal process, reach for The Age Defy Collagen Boost + Vitamin C serum ffrom Green People . This clean-beauty innovation hydrates deeply while repairing skin on the cellular level and defending against both environmental stressors and blue light damage.
While serums and moisturizers work to keep our skin hydrated and healthy on a daily basis, sometimes we need an extra boost, particularly if we have spent a little too long in the sun. Masks serve up an extra-large helping of beneficial ingredients, and provide the added perk of instant gratification. For skin that is dry and irritated, try our Age Defy Hydra Glow Sleep Mask immediately calms and quenches Caesalpinia Spinosa delivers intense skin hydration and long-term firmness ,Green Macro Algae brightens and soothes, while vitamins and lipids restore healthy barrier function - along with stimulating collagen. For best results, apply a thick layer one to two times per week (at night) , and wake up with the most beautiful glowing skin.
If dull skin is bringing you down, will be the perfect pick-me-up. try our Jillian Dempsey Hydrating Eye Mask. These masks are made of biocellulose, which has a skinlike texture, so they’re pliable and don’t feel like anything on—and they bathe your skin in a milky serum that’s smoothing and firming and doesn’t drip,” says top makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, who created them for prepping her red-carpet clients and realised they work to make anyone look subtly (but significantly) more rested and fresh.
A blend of hyaluronic acid and almond and camelina oils saturates the masks to hydrate, calm, and nourish skin, leaving the undereye area supple and glowy.
To use them, simply unpeel the paper on both sides and stick one under each eye. And for the ultimate experience, put on the masks and use Dempsey’s brilliant vibrating roller over the top.
