The Ultimate Summer Skincare Guide

on

The summer sun brings warmth, adventure, and the promise of unforgettable moments. Yet, as the temperature rises, so does the need for a thoughtful skincare routine that preserves your skin's health and radiance.

With the right approach, you can enjoy the sun's embrace while ensuring your skin remains hydrated, protected, and luminous throughout the season. A simple read through this blog can help you tackle your summer-skin, head on!

 

Always Remember, Hydration is Key:

The sun's rays can decrease your skin's moisture, leading to dryness, inflammation, redness and discomfort. To combat this, prioritise hydration from the inside out. Increase your water intake and include water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon, and oranges in your diet. Consider lightweight, hydrating serums to lock in moisture and create a healthy barrier against dehydration.

Our go-to serum is the Eliqsur Hydrating Serum that keeps your skin hydrated, giving you a smooth, dewy, and plump look while keeping you moisturised.

 

SPF- Your Best Friend:

Sunscreen is not only a summer accessory; it's a year-round necessity. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least SPF 30 or more, daily, even on cloudy days. Reapply every hour, especially if you're swimming or sweating. Protecting your skin from UV rays not only prevents sunburn but also reduces the risk of premature aging and sun damage including dark spots as well as skin cancer.

 

Lighten Up Your Routine:

Swap heavy creams and thick foundations for lightweight, oil-free alternatives. Consider tinted moisturisers with SPF as they provide a sheer coverage while shielding your skin from the sun's harmful effects. The goal is to let your skin breathe while maintaining a polished appearance.

 

Exfoliating:

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, allowing your skin to absorb products more effectively. Opt for gentle exfoliants containing fruit enzymes or alpha hydroxy acids. However, be cautious not to overdo it – 1 to 2 times a week is usually sufficient to achieve that summer glow.

The exfoliators we are loving right now are the Skin Creamery Powder to Foam Cleanser and Deep Cleansing Powder

 

Cherish the Cleansing:

Frequent cleansing is essential during summer. Sweat, oil, and pollutants can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Choose a gentle cleanser that removes impurities without stripping your skin's natural oils. Cleanse morning and night to keep your skin fresh and clear.

Our go-to cleanser is the Skin Creamery Oil-Milk Cleanser.

 

Eye Cream :

The skin around your eyes is delicate and prone to sun damage. Invest in a good quality eye cream with SPF to safeguard this sensitive area. This step not only prevents sun-induced wrinkles but also reduces the risk of skin cancer around the eyes.

 

Repair and Replenish:
After a day of sun exposure, treat your skin to a rejuvenating treatment. Serums rich in antioxidants like vitamin C can help repair sun damage and boost collagen production. These antioxidants fight against free radicals, preventing premature aging.

The O Nutricia Collagen + Vitamin C Capsules are a game changer and our favourite way to get a daily dose of the supplements ! 

Alternatively, you can try out the Eliqsur Brightening Serum which contains Vitamin C, the star of the show.

 

Summer should be about carefree enjoyment, and a well-crafted skincare routine can ensure you relish every moment without worrying about your skin's well-being. By following these tips, you'll not only achieve a radiant summer glow but also maintain skin health that will serve you for years to come.
