Summer is finally here! Whether you are in a hot country that can enjoy the sun with relaxed lockdown rules, or in the UK where you are currently able to meet up to 5 other people outside - now is our chance to get rid of our isolation skin. For some, summer is one of the hardest times of year to keep your skin looking subtle and soft. The harsh UV rays from the sun and baking dry heat can cause havoc with our complexion. Then there's pollution and dirt to add into the mix. If you take away only one thing from any beauty routine or skincare ritual - let it be hydration.
Say goodbye to dull, flaky dry skin and embrace your natural glow for summer 2020. How you may ask? Well here are 3 easy steps for hydrated and healthy skin.
Use a light moisturiser
As well as drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day (or 2 full litres) and eating the right foods to keep your skin hydrated, a light moisturising cream or gel is ideal for the summer months. A lightweight formula will settle nicely and be able to sink into your pores without leaving a sticky residue or clogging your skin. If you choose to wear makeup in the summer, make sure you use a moisturiser underneath to avoid the flaky, cakey look from dry skin build up.
Exfoliate your lockdown skin away
It comes as no surprise that over lockdown our skin has been wreaking havoc in more ways than one. Some have complained of dry and dull looking complexions from lack of vitamin D, where others have broken out and seen blemishes re-appear from the sweat and heat of a very warm few months stuck inside. However now it’s all about to change. As lockdown rules ease across the world we can now enjoy unlimited time outside - hurrah! And now summer is finally here, it’s time to exfoliate all the dead skin and dullness off our faces. Leaving behind a fabulous, glowing complexion.
Keep your skin glowing with SPF
In order to keep your skin safe from harmful UV rays during the summer this year, you need an SPF. This can come in the form of a cream, gel, spray or combined into other skincare products for dual action. SPF acts as a barrier between your skin and the sun, it helps you as though it were an anti-ageing product, meaning collagen can keep your skin looking plump and youthful. As well as this you will find your skin to have a healthy glow after using an SPF, and it lasts all day!
