That sizzling summer sun is starting to come out of hiding. Before you sit back, relax and soak up all that glorious sunshine, it’s time to show your skin some TLC and sort out your summertime skincare regime.
Scrub, scrub, scrub!
I’m talking about the exfoliating kind, not the guy who thinks he’s fly. A body scrub will help get rid of dead layers of skin, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. Don’t forget to (gently) exfoliate your face, and your lips using a lip scrub - you never know when you might want to pucker up!
Seal the deal with some moisturiser
Keep your skin feeling silky smooth by moisturising all over - we love to use a body balm. For your face, pop a light layer of serum on your face, let it sit for a minute, then lock it in with your favourite face moisturiser. You’ll be looking like a glowing goddess in no time.
Keep those nasty UV rays arms length away
With the help of a little SPF. Slather some sunscreen all over yourself to protect your skin from sunburn, skin cancer and nasty little wrinkles. It is recommended to apply sunscreen (with an SPF of 30 or above) at least twenty minutes before you go outside and every two hours after that. Popping on some sunnies and a cute hat doesn’t hurt either!
Hydrate like there’s no tomorrow
You know the drill, drinking plenty of water throughout the day keeps your body hydrated and your skin happy. Don’t forget to hydrate from the outside too. A hydrating facial spray helps refresh and restore the skin, and they totally help cool you down on a hot summers day.
Show your inner self some love, too
We’ve covered off having plenty of water. But it’s not the only thing that’ll keep your skin looking lush. Cutting back on processed foods and increasing your intake of vitamin rich fruits and vegetables will work wonders for your skin. And, we all know how good protein is for keeping our skin looking and feeling 100%.
Now that we’ve got your skin sorted, you and your best gal pals can sit back and relax at the beach, at the pool, or anywhere really - it’s time to get wild under the summer sun!
