During the summer, hot temperatures, high humidity and lots of sun exposure all contribute to water evaporating from your skin, leaving it dry and sometimes even burnt. Here are four fabulous tips to getting holiday-ready, radiant skin during the summer months!
Four key steps to beautiful skin this summer
#1: Use a gentle cleanser
Bin the harsh cleansers for the season and switch to a gentle one that won’t dry out your skin. The sun can be harsh enough on your complexion!
#2: Exfoliate twice a day
Get a good base and a radiant glow by exfoliating your dull skin away twice a day. This leaves your pores prepped and ready to add in extra moisture.
#3: Take cold showers
Sure, long, hot showers or baths are divine, but they can dry your skin out immensely. Try to take short, cold showers or baths instead. I add essential oils to my bathwater for silky-soft skin!
#4: Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!
Try to moisturise your skin twice or three times a day. The best time is immediately after a shower or bath, when your pores are open. Thick, rich moisturisers are best for maintaining the skin’s protective barrier.
Happy summer, everyone!
