With summer just around the corner, it is important to treat your skin to a different routine than the one you have had all winter. Lighter, more hydrating products will help nourish the skin after long days in the sun so you can achieve healthy, glowing skin all summer long. Here’s how to care for your skin throughout July and August to achieve a perfect glow.
1. Gently Exfoliate Your Face And Body To Revive The Complexion and Skin
You don’t need to break the bank with exfoliating beauty products. There are some great ones you can order online such as St Ives Apricot Face Scrub, as used by model Gigi Hadid. This scrub really lifts impurities and deeply cleanses the face. Formulated with vitamin c-rich fruit acids and walnut shell, this product is the ultimate skin re-newer. For best results, leave on and relax for 10 minutes. Remove with a warm, damp cloth. Once exfoliated, The Live Well Sweet ORANGE Lip Balm is perfect for moisturising your lips before you begin any skincare or makeup application.
For your body, Mrs Frisbee’s All Naturals’ Exfoliating Body Wash with Juniper Berry, Grapefruit, Aloe Vera & Sea Buckthorn is a perfect gentle exfoliating body wash to remove dead skin cells, with a fruity uplifting fragrance. This natural blend of active ingredients can also help boost circulation, improve skin tone, the appearance of cellulite and detoxify your skin. The natural pumice exfoliates, leaving your skin feeling polished, renewed and silky smooth.
2. Lock in Moisture and Keep Skin Hydrated All Day Long
Following your deep yet gentle cleanse, use the Live Well Marula Facial Oil for added nourishment and always remember to moisturise to lock in hydration. It is a must-have moisturiser. A natural facial serum containing a blend of Marula and Apricot oils helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles resulting in younger, more radiant skin. The combination of oils helps keep the skin hydrated for longer, giving the skin a healthy glow.
Directions for use: Using the dropper, apply two drops and gently pat the serum onto cleansed skin and blend in until fully absorbed.
3. Restore Hydration and Reveal Firm, Plump Skin
The plant based Hyaluron Serum Moisturiser by Susanne Kaufmann is amazing but expensive at £107. It contains molecules of two different sizes, which helps the skin cells to store moisture. Topping up the moisture reserves reduces wrinkles and leaves the complexion looking rejuvenated, refreshed and smooth. Top tip: Use as an overnight treatment together with the Moisturising Mask for an extra boost of hydration. The perfect solution for dry or dehydrated skin after pro-longed sun exposure.
4. Achieve an Instant Glow
The Green Tea Mask by Live Well as part of its Home Spa package is the ultimate in stimulating the skin and leaving the complexion clear with a perfectly natural glow. Top tip: Use this face mask once or twice a week to give your skin an extra treat. You will begin to see the glow after just 15 minutes. Applying the mask in the morning and remove with cold water will give the complexion a cooling refreshing feel. The Live Well Pamper Hamper (natural skincare) is all-natural vegan soap and cruelty-free skincare. Their luxury soap and skincare range is hand-crafted in the UK, using only the finest quality natural ingredients. The products contain no chemicals, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances; making them especially kind to your summer skin and the environment too.
5. Replenish your summer locks with Mrs Frisbee’s All Naturals Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo
Last but not least, many forget that selecting the right haircare products ultimately contributes to clear skin, especially during the summer months when pores are susceptible to acne. And of course, healthy hair starts with a clean scalp and well-conditioned roots. Mrs Frisbee’s All Naturals Organic shampoo on Buy Britain is mild and gentle and is made using aloe vera leaf juice and a plant-based foaming agent. Suitable for the heat of summer and the most delicate and sensitive skin including people with eczema on the scalp or face or other skin conditions, who have problems using regular shampoos. In addition, it is also fragrance-free and allergen-free. Suitable for use all summer. Aloe Vera is naturally soothing and healing and promotes cell regeneration. Furthermore, when applied topically it is especially beneficial in helping treat skin irritations, burns, scalds, sunburn, wounds, eczema, psoriasis, acne, dermatitis and skin ulcers.
A sun-kissed glow requires so much more than a long afternoon under the summer sun but with the right steps and routine you can ensure a glowy look all summer. And don’t forget the sunscreen (SPF30)!
