For weeks LOVE ISLANDERS have graced our screens, flaunting their toned bodies with flawless skin.
It is not easy, and contestants must undergo extensive skin checks before entering the villa.
They will need to protect their skin from the sun as they are in sunny Spain.
Talk to Central Recorder, dermatologist Dr Elif BenarSome of the products and habits they use could be doing more harm than good.
1. SUN EXPOSURE
Dr Elif states that the first mistake they make is to stay in the sun too much.
Since they arrived at the villa, the islanders have been enjoying the sun.
Tan transformations show how their skin has changed over the past few days.
Dr Elif said that you’ll see the love Islanders relaxing outside in many episodes.
Too much exposure to the sun can cause heatstroke, dehydration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
“I recommend that you avoid spending too much time outside, but if it is necessary, you should always apply sunscreen at least every 2 hours.
“When applying sunscreen, the two-finger method is an easy way for you to measure how much sunscreen to apply for you face.”
2. VITAMIN C
Vitamin C offers many health benefits, as well as skin benefits.
Boots, who provide islanders with skin consultations said previously that Gemma Owen, a fan favorite, uses vitamin C serum for a radiance boost.
Dr Elif stated that you should not use only vitamin C for this purpose.
Vitamin C can be combined with other ingredients to give you an additional boost.
“You can absolutely apply it with niaciniamide, peptides, AHA & AHA and retinol too.
“There is no single ingredient Vitamin C shouldn’t be used with. I would recommend combining it with ferulic acid to help diminish redness and protect the skin from long-term damage caused by harmful sun rays too,”She said.
3. USING RETINOL
Retinol can be used to treat skin conditions.
It was revealed previously that this product was one that Tasha had used.
It is recommended to pair it with high-factor SPF during the day, as it can cause skin sensitivity when used in conjunction with sunlight exposure.
A nurse and founder of aesthetics Therapy HouseDawn Attewell, added that: “Retinol has a great effect on the skin. It brightens duller skin and prevents wrinkles.
“However, its worth keeping in mind that retinol is ’sun-sensitive’. The ingredient’s effectiveness is reduced by the sun, which makes it significantly less effective.
“I would recommend using the retinoid at night so it can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.”
