Summer time is a time of renewal and rebirth. This time of year requires special attention and care for the skin of the face and body. From the sun, the skin may look overdried and tired. The moisture and elasticity, tonus and color of the skin are lost. Most women who think that their skin is too dry, use a very fatty, tight cream texture to restore the water balance.
