Everything You Need to Know About Skincare This Summer

Myconian Collection's guide to protect your skin from sun damage

Elite treatments at the Myconian Collection’s state-of-the-art spas will meet all those holiday needs by making sure that you look gorgeous while lying by the pool, or dancing at full moon parties.

Here you are, stepping out of an airplane on Mykonos after a long flight, with all the signs of jet lag etched on your skin! We all know from experience the dehydrating effects of long flights on our organs, including our skin, so be proactive and follow the experts’ advice and treat yourself to a beneficial facial, in order to reverse all the damage. The next day, summer can officially begin.

Fun at the beach, dancing day and night, delicious Greek food, long hours in the sun… You don’t have to miss a thing, just as long as you tend to your skin afterwards, since this is the “map” on which all signs of aging – fine lines, wrinkles or even spots – will first appear.

Unlimited spa treatments at the Myconian Collection’s seven spas and thalassotherapy pools are here to calm your senses. Elemis Pro-Definition Lift & Contour helps restore the structure of the face using potent, active nutrients found in plants that help support the extra-cellular matrix. Elemis Superfood Pro-Radiance Facial is a nutritional boost, rich in superfoods and essential minerals designed to nourish stressed, dull skin with energizing, detoxifying active ingredients. Join in this amazing journey for a healthy, radiant glow in the Mykonos sun.

Elemis’ Co-founder and creator of the brand’s therapies, Noella Gabriel shares her precious knowledge along with some small but effective beauty “tweaks” that will make all the difference.

What is your ‘must have’ ELEMIS product?

The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. It delivers what it promises! From the same range, and for those who prefer the serum texture, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum is a real jewel that impacts an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin.

What should we look out for in our skincare products?

I’m an ingredient junkie! Look out for Stem Cells, Peptides, Enzymes, Seaweeds (yes, all those fancy ones), but what is more interesting to me are textures.

Why is oil such a great product to take with you when on holiday?

When we travel, our skin becomes dehydrated due to the change in climate and diet. By using oily textures, your complexion will look supple, nourished and cared for at all times. I strongly recommend the ELEMIS Superfood Facial Oil after a day in the sun, and of course the divine ELEMIS Frangipani or Sweet Orchid Monoi Body Oil. Also try our Moringa Oil, which has 1700% more antioxidant power than any other oil!

Which ELEMIS treatment would you recommend to the Myconian Collection visitor?

Definitely one of the massages that combines expert techniques with a laid-back attitude, and of course an anti-ageing ELEMIS Facial, such as the Pro-Definition Lift & Contour Facial, either to target lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, or to bring radiance to uneven skin tone. I also strongly recommend trying the ELEMIS Detox Treatment Trio: Thousand Flower Detox Wrap, Cellutox Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap and the Targeted Toning Tightener. This can be your kick-start to a healthier living.
