What are the important skincare routines during Summer

Q&A with Dra. Eloisa Tulayba

1. How does summer impact our skin?
Summer could be fun but it could also harm our skin. The intensive heat from the sun can increase the activity of our sebaceous glands which can make our skin oilier and dry.

2. What are the important skincare routines during summer?
In summers, oily skin is prevalent. No matter whether you have dry skin or sensitive skin; you will always feel some greasiness. To avoid such a situation, you must wash your face twice a day with a sulphate-free face wash like Glogeous advanced face wash gel and Aveeno dermexa wash. Face washes are necessary to remove excess oil ,dead cells and dirt from the face.Don’t forget to also drink enough water because it aids your body to keep hydrated, refreshed and also helps to balance skin’s elasticity.
The most important thing is that you need to protect your skin from the sun, your skin will age faster and increase your risk of skin cancer.

3. What is SPF? How much SPF does skin need?
The SPF on sunscreen stands for sun protection factor, a relative measurement for the amount of time the sunscreen will protect you from ultraviolet (UV) rays. UVB rays primarily affect the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis. They are responsible for sunburns and some surface-level skin cancers.
SPF numbers typically refer only to UVB rays, but some sunscreens can protect against UVA as well.
Using sunscreen is an important way to reduce negative side effects from harmful UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. Adults of all ages and skin color should use at least an SPF of 30 during all outdoor activities. Additionally, you shouldn’t rely on just sunscreen as a way to avoid the sun’s radiation. Protective clothing and shade can also help protect you from the sun.

4. How many times should we reapply sunscreen?
In general, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours for consistent protection. However, there is an exception to the rule—if you’re sweating or swimming you need to apply more often. To make sure you’re protected even when you’re active, you should reapply sunscreen at least every 80 minutes.

5. Do you have any sunscreen recommendations?
These are my recommendations
Ahaglow Sunscreens, you will be protected be it indoors or outdoors. Ahaglow Sunscreen Lotions SPF 26 or SPF 50 are both broad spectrum sunscreens which protect skin from UVA and UVB, it has antioxidant & moisturising properties, water resistant, and it has auto-adaptation to climate so it’s best for tropical countries like the Philippines. On the other hand, Ahaglow Skin Protect Gel SPF 40 offers additional benefits such as protection from IR damage, prevention of wrinkle formation from photoaging and it corrects dryness and roughness of the skin.
Ekran 30 and Ekran soft. This is one of the best sunscreens for oily skin .It is very light in skin , spreads easily and absorbs very fast. It is broad spectrum , non greasy, non -comedogenic, hypoallergenic, stable and safer sunscreen.
As the first silicon elastomer sunscreen , this provides a high water and sweat resistance.
I would say that this product is really one of its kind and is really promising. It is Matte Finish and cosmetically elegant.
Once the skin gets sunburn, I recommend applying Ahaglow Skin Repair Gel to restore the integrity and barrier functions of the skin. It also provides a calming effect on the
burned skin.

6. What should we eat in summer for good skin and what should we avoid?
Vegetables. Like fruits, vegetables are also essential foods for healthy skin. Vegetables like sweet potatoes and green beans, which contain beta-carotene and vitamin A (retinol), should be eaten during summers. Retinol helps protect the skin from damage caused by sun exposure
Fats are a concentrated source of energy and one gram of fat provides almost twice the energy as one gram of carbohydrate. Hence, during hot months of summer, we should avoid intake of too much fat.

As mentioned, start the summer skincare routine with a facewash and I recommend to use Glogeous Advanced Face Wash Gel. It offers deep pore cleansing without post-wash dryness; it improves skin microcirculation, skin complexion, skin colour & luminosity; it fights skin dullness; it maintains skin Ph balance and it is sulphate-free.

7. How often should we visit a skin clinic?
Depending on your particular concerns and treatment program.The general recommendation is for a facial every three to four weeks or once a month. Those who just need or want light peels can usually get them every month. For more intense treatments, like medium or peels, it’s advisable to wait four or six months in between appointments. Those who wish to get deep peels should only do so once every few years.
Facial once a month is a great supplement to your skincare routine. Just like any part of your skincare regimen, facials are best when they’re done consistently and regularly.

8. Please tell us about your clinic
Cosmederme Aesthetic and Cosmetic Clinic is a posh, stylish and advanced clinic that offers non-surgical and surgical services. It has 2 branches located at Centuria Medical Makati one-stop, outpatient medical-IT facility located at the heart of Century City, Makati, Philippines and at EJRN Cosmederme building at Sampaloc, Manila.

Digital Cover: Gabriella Melrose – Female Life Coach, Author & Entrepreneur

Gabriella Melrose is a female life coach who helps women learn how to love themselves, face fears, reach their goals and create healthy relationships. Recently she released a book, “How To Become A Strong Woman”, that inspires women to go after the life they want and never let anyone use them.

For many years Gabriella was involved in modelling, acting and fitness. She has gained significant social media popularity after posting photos of luxury cars. It seemed like she had it all; luxury lifestyle, red carpet events and magazine covers, but nobody knew the sad reality of her personal life. She had a partner who was unfaithful to her and used violence, which led Gabriella to disappear from social media and start a self-love journey that inspired her to become a life coach. After the breakup with her partner, she disappeared from the media for almost a year to spend time with herself, learning how to love herself and resolve the childhood traumas that led her to a toxic relationship. After she returned, she shared the sad reality of violence and cheating that she suffered, which led her to become a life coach for other women and inspired her to write a book. 

Gabriella has no plans to return to the entertainment industry and wants to dedicate her life to helping other women. Her story teaches us that it doesn’t matter if you are famous and beautiful; you are not protected from toxic relationships. To avoid them, you must set standards, love, and understand yourself. You must prioritise yourself because if you don’t, people might harm you.
