You Asked: How To Tackle Post-Summer Dehydration & Hyperpigmentation

We recently asked you to tell us your biggest post-summer skincare blues and no surprise the top answers were hyperpigmentation and dehydration! All that summer fun, those sun-kissed days and salty swims have left our skin and hair needing a reset.

We’ve lined up the superstars you should add to your routine to say goodbye to post-summer problems and hello to glowing skin and glossy locks! 

Rediscover Radiance For a Post-Summer Glow

Summertime, especially in Australasia, means sun-time. Months of spending long days outdoors, even when avidly applying sunscreen, can cause an increase in hyperpigmentation, i.e. freckles and dark patches. This is caused by the UV rays hitting your skin and creating an excess of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. After the damage is done, hyperpigmentation can stick around for years to come and darken every summer, luckily we’ve got just the products to reverse the effects.

Vitamin C is your ally against hyperpigmentation. It inhibits the enzymes that promote melanin production, whilst lightening the dark spots without affecting the rest of your skin. This clever antioxidant also promotes an even skin tone, boosts collagen production and leaves your skin glowing and bright. What’s not to love? 

We’ve got a whole Vitaminc C Brightening range dedicated to this super ingredient, but here are our two favourite products to specifically target UV-induced pigmentation.

Advanced Brightening Vitamin C Serum: This premium, high-potency formula helps brighten skin tone and improve the appearance of dark spots. Rich in antioxidants, the low-irritation serum leaves your skin glowing and energised.

Vitamin C Super Glow Facial Oil: Harnessing the power of Vitamin C Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, turmeric and jojoba, this low-irritation oil evens out skin tone, lightens dark spots and leaves your skin looking brighter. >

Saving Your Skin Post Summer? Hydration Is Key!

Increased sun exposure, socialising and salty air can be a rough ol’ time for our skin and the cool, dry air and indoor heating heralding the start of autumn bring their own unique issues. It's important to have a skin regimen geared towards both healing the damage of summer and protecting from future problems.

The essano hydration+ range is powered by skin-loving actives that nourish and moisturise. Rosehip Oil and 4-weights of Hyaluronic Acid target dry and dehydrated skin, leaving you glowing. The amazing line-up includes seven game-changing products that will become your skin’s new AM to PM go-to.

As now’s the time to truly treat your skin, these are our top three picks to create a luxurious mini spa day at home.

    1. Clinically proven to flood the skin with thirst-quenching actives, the hydration+ Rosehip Super Serum offers 24-hour hydration. The silky-soft serum is packed with Rosehip Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalene to nourish the skin, while Niacinamide and Ceramide Complex strengthen its natural barrier for plump, dewy, glowing skin.
    2. The 2-in-1 hydration+ Pink Clay Exfoliator works as both a gentle exfoliator to buff away dead skin cells and as a weekly detoxifying mask to reveal a smooth & bright complexion. As well as our star ingredients Rosehip Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, the scrub has natural pink clay and Rosehip granules to draw out and get rid of impurities.
    3. Sit back and relax with the hydration+ Moisture Sheet Mask. Nourishment in a flash, it’s made with Ceramide Complex to deliver a burst of hydration and lock in moisture.

    Experiencing ‘Snow’ A Little Early In The Season? 

    Dehydration doesn’t just happen to your face and body, your scalp is skin too and after summer could really do with some extra TLC. Although dandruff and a dry scalp are year-round issues, caused by the microbe Malassezia globosa, the warmer months can aggravate the problem thanks to heat, sweat and being in contact with more pollutants due to being outside more.

    The most effective way to keep dandruff at bay is to regularly use a specially formulated haircare regime. Our Exper+ise Detox + Exfoliate range is designed to cleanse and detoxify your scalp and hair, whilst drenching it in hydration.

    Packed with all the skin-loving actives you commonly find in expensive salon brands, this affordable three-step regimen exfoliates the scalp by removing dandruff flakes.

  1. Exper+ise Detox + Exfoliate Pre-Rinse Treatment
  2. Massage this treatment generously into dry hair and the scalp-balancing actives Niacinamide and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) help to reduce dandruff, relieve discomfort and exfoliate the skin. 

  3. Exper+ise Detox + Exfoliate Balancing Shampoo
  4. This gentle shampoo harnesses the power of Niacinamide, Amino Acid Complex and AHAs to remove dandruff flakes, product build-up and discomfort without stripping the hair of essential moisture.

  5. Exper+ise Detox + Exfoliate Balancing Conditioner
  6. Finish up by smoothing this nourishing conditioner through the lengths and ends of hair, to leave it moisturised, manageable and glossy. It uses the same skin–loving actives and is pH-balanced so that it doesn’t irritate the scalp.
