The first Summer sun on ones face means taking a serious look at ones skincare and while we love to bare it all we need to pay extra attention to our skin especially after the long winter cover up.

Stepping into Summer

75% of premature aging and unhealthy skin is caused by unprotected exposure to the sun and the use of beauty products that contain chemical ingredients, fragrances, mineral oils and colorants which are dangerous and damaging to the skin.  This damage is not just short term.  You’re in for the long haul.  Just as winter weather makes us pay special attention to our skin - summer skin has its own requirements. 

You surely already know that you should wear sun protection daily to avoid premature aging and skin cancer.  If you spend lots of time outdoors always apply Dr Baumann Bionome Sun Care with (minimum) Spf 20.  The cancer-preventing benefits are obvious, but protection is also a must for those of you who don’t want to look old before your time.

 If your skin is dry, it may look and feel better in the warmer months.  But if it’s only, the heat and humidity of summer can make it feel more so.  Change your creams according to the “feel good scale”.  Light textures are more comfortable in warm weather.  Fluids and lotions may be your best choice.

 Protect and treat your skin in a safe healthy way by only using Dr Baumann Sun and Skin Care products that uphold the Bionome Quality Standards of skin compatibility and effectiveness.

Be on the summer “A List”

Multi Vitamin Lotion - A light protection for oily skin.  It is a cocktail of Vitamins A, B3, C, E, F and D Panthenol.

Intensive Lotion - For dry skin Evening Primrose Oil, Vitamin A and C an optima “treater” for face and body.

Liposome Multi Active E+C - Contains high concentrations of vitamin E and C - A perfect free radical protection and hydration for sun damaged, sun exposed or aging skin.

Protect and treat your skin in a safe healthy way by only using Dr Baumann Skincare products that uphold the Bionome Quality Standards.

  • The secret of a can’t-tell-it-from real tan is in the application.  So follow these how-to guidelines and your fake tan will last longer, and have your friends wondering about your weekend get aways.
  • The day before applying your self tan, exfoliate well.  the smoother the canvas, the more even your tan will be.  Concentrate on thicker areas of skin for example the knees, elbows and ankles.  Use the Mineral Sea Peel Oil for a deep exfoliation, do circular movements in the direction of the heart to increase the blood circulation.  A body brush or exfoliating gloves can also be used in conjunction with the Sea Peel Oil.
  • Don’t apply within an hour of bathing or showering, as the skin needs to cool to its normal temperature for foolproof application.
  • Use the Bath and Shower Gel to cleanse the body, as soap, which is alkaline, can make the tan look more yellow.
  • Moisturize the skin before you apply your self tan, or drier areas of the skin will soak up more of the self tan and be darker, for example the knees, elbows and ankles.  Apply moisturizer about and hour or two before applying the self tan.
  • Warm the self tan in your hands, and massage the self tanner in, using long, smooth strokes and applying even pressure with your fingertips.

Shower and Bath

A particularly gentle cleanser for the body with mild cleansing substances. Afterwards we recommend the application of one of the Body Lotions. For very dry, flaky skin the Intensive Lotion and Body Lotion Super is recommended.

APPLICATION TIPS: Diminish and avoid crows feet!

  • The skin under the eyes is much thinner and contains fewer oil glands than the rest of your face, and so as a result can be drier and more prone to wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
  • Do not fall in the trap of slathering eyes with a super-rich cream to replace lost moisture and restore suppleness.  That is too much for the eye area to cope with and can lead to puffiness or sensitivity.
  • Protection from sunlight is the most important precaution against aging the eye area to remember.  Wear sunglasses or an eye shade every day.
  • Tips on preventing fine lines from forming:
  • Cleanse the eye area very gently, using an eye make-up remover, or cleansing milk.  
  • Apply a Liposome of choice to the eye area.  The Liposomes will transport active ingredients deeper into the skin.
  • Apply 2 drops of the Humidity/Moisture Ampoule around the eye area, to supply the area with sufficient moisture.
  • Stipple a drop of the Eye Gel just above the cheek bone, and above the eyebrow. The Eye Gel contains Ceramides to protect and act as armor against moisture loss in this area.
  • Stipple Eye Cream on the same areas after the application of the Eye Gel. The Eye Cream contains Jojoba Oil to nourish and protect the delicate eye area, and create suppleness to prevent fine lines from forming.

Humidity/Moisture Ampoule

(Moisture Ampoules)

The tightening effect of hyaluronic acid and the good compatibility of these ampoules with the eye area make them an ideal intensive treatment for skin around the eyes. Regular application of these ampoules is the perfect supplement to both DR. BAUMANN eye care products.
