The Sun, wind, sea or even pool water have a wonderful effect on our morale but our skin doesn’t have the same opinion. Dried, damaged, thickened, it demands our attention
7 tips to moisturize and rebalance in depth while retaining its Sun-kissed glow.
1 - To rid your fragile skin of toxins and dead cells but also moisturize, use a botanical non-abrasive peel without grains, 3 times a week for a month.
Depending on the nature of your skin:
• Normal to oily, opt for GOMMAGE 303
• Dry and sensitive, select GOMMAGE 305

Sun-deprived Britons lack vitamin D, say health experts.
People between 11 and 64 should ensure they reach 10 micrograms of vitamin D every day. It was previously assumed that exposure to sunlight would enable most people to reach this target, but new scientific evidence shows “this is not the case”.
Vitamin D is synthesized by the skin under the action of sunlight. In our body, it acts as a hormone and plays a key role in bone mineralization, however "the action of sunlight on the skin in the UK is highly variable for different populations depending on the time of year and the latitude – you’ll get more UVB in Brighton than in John O’Groats – and finally, how much skin is exposed and the colour of skin. SACN was right to say that we can’t rely on sunshine in the UK to meet the vitamin D requirements. That’s a major and important change. It’s a big step forward that this is now officially recognised.”
