Summer is here, and with it comes hot weather with temperatures well above 20 degrees. This is the time of year when skin concerns spike due to sweating and excess sebum. In addition, wrinkles and sagging skin that has lost its elasticity due to photoaging caused by strong UV rays are also a concern. This is because UV rays accelerate the synthesis of collagen-degrading enzymes, which are the building blocks of the skin's dermis layer, leading to collagen reduction and degradation. Under these circumstances, summer is a time when our skin needs extra care.
Luckily, the beauty industry has come up with the perfect self-care routine for summer skin: the "L.T.E." regimen. What does "L.T.E." stand for? It stands for "Lifting," "Tightening," and "Energizing," which refers to treatments that plump up sagging skin, help improve pores and skin texture, and boost skin condition, respectively. As our skin becomes more sensitive during the summer months, there are a number of beauty items that are perfect for this "L.T.E." treatment.
First up is the Ampoule Stick. This product from a Korean A-list brand provides elasticity care for skin tired from strong UV rays and hot and humid climates. It contains ingredients that nurture the flexibility of the skin, and the highly concentrated essence helps to maintain the skin's elasticity. The beads on the top of the product help the active ingredients to be absorbed quickly and easily, even in curved areas, and the refreshing formulation provides relief from the summer heat. It can be worn on top of makeup, and its compact size makes it easy to carry around.
Next up is the Toner Pad. Launched by a Korean B-brand, this product is a toner pad that gently removes dead skin cells and sebum from pores that have been enlarged by sweat and sebum while improving skin texture. The pads are made of unbleached, non-fluorescent, pure cotton sterile pads that wipe the skin smoothly without irritation and are safe for sensitive skin. This minimizes skin discomfort and provides refreshing daily care.
The last product we will introduce is a 'super serum' from a Korean C-brand, which focuses on skin elasticity and provides a powerful elasticity effect on the skin. It also consists of a formulation that can be applied without any adjustment period for convenient daily use.
As you can see, our skin is more sensitive during the summer months and needs to be taken care of. With the right products, you can maintain your skin's elasticity and keep it healthy and beautiful. Have a happy and energetic summer with summer skin care! :)
