01 Jun Your Summer Skincare Essentials
Summer is just around the corner and with life getting a little more ‘normal’ it’s time to enjoy all the things you’ve been missing. And of course, with beach days, barbecues and brunch with your girls back on the cards, you’ll want to look your very best. Follow my top tips below to step up your summer skincare routine and invest in the best beauty treatments for 2021.
How can I get my skin ready for summer?
Exfoliating twice weekly will ensure your skin is bright and radiant. It gets rid of dead skin cells and prevents your pores from getting clogged with sun cream and tanning products. For your face, I recommend using an exfoliating toner like the Medik8 Press & Glow.
Side tip – Don’t forget to exfoliate your feet and get them flip flop ready! The SkinRepublic Foot Peel is great for exfoliating and moisturising dry calluses, with results in just 7 days.
Equally as important as exfoliating your skin is keeping it hydrated. Use a moisturiser on your face and body to nourish your skin and give it natural softness. And just because you’ve got youthful skin (teens – early 20s) doesn’t mean you can skip the moisturiser. Choose a product like the Ark Age Protect Skin Vitality Moisturiser to hydrate your skin and benefit from its antioxidant properties.
Looking for the best body moisturiser? I love the CND Hand & Body lotions. The Scentsations Mango & Coconut body cream has the perfect summer scent.
No matter your age, the condition of your skin or the weather outside, you need to apply an SPF. The sun’s harmful UV rays can shine through and harm your skin even on cold and cloudy days. Protect your skin from signs of ageing (dark spots and wrinkles) and life-threatening cancers with a sun protection lotion. On your face, I recommend using a good SPF like the Ark Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer. Simply apply it over your moisturiser and before any makeup. For extra sun protection, try the Cryobloc SPF 50. This has a much thicker consistency and is particularly effective on skin that has undergone cryotherapy treatments.
Tan the safe way with self tanning products. There’s really no need to scorch your skin in the sun or on a sun bed when you can create a lovely glow with the Sienna X Gradual Untinted Self Tan Rose Water.
