In the high and late summer heat, the skin easily becomes extra hot, which can be followed by various complaints. Through what is called Cooling Skincare, you can give the skin the relief it needs through thin, cooling textures, gel products and cooling sheet masks. Perfect as after sun or after a laser treatment!Cooling products are also pore-contracting because the pores expand with heat, and thus they shrink slightly when cold is added. All skin types benefit from using Cooling Skincare when needed, but especially a more sensitive skin type and that which often becomes red, swollen and experiences irritation. It is also well suited for the more oily skin type or combination skin that prefers light and thin textures.
Nice gel creams
Vitamin Tree Water Gel from I'm From is a balancing moisturizer with a gel formula. It is anti-inflammatory, soothing and skin-smoothing at the same time as it cools nicely. The ingredient Niacinamide counteracts fine lines and enlarged pores and improves skin elasticity. Can be advantageously used as a night mask with a thicker layer that is washed off in the morning.
Cica Regen 95 Soothing Gel from Dr. Ceuracle consists of 95% centella asiatica (cica), which immediately soothes and calms the most irritated skin.
