Summer Skincare Essentials

Summer Skincare Essentials – Ah, Summer! Now that it’s nearly July I thought it would be a good time to write about some of my summer skincare essentials and to give you some tips on what products are good for keeping your skin smooth, nourished and refreshed during those hot summer days!

Summer Skincare Essentials – Cleanser

Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser – I have a review on this very soon so I’ll keep it short and sweet! It’s a product that leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. Removing all traces of make-up and dirt it can be used in the morning and evening.

Lacura Moisturising Face Wash (Soap Free) – I will be using this more in the evenings with cool water to really refresh my skin. It’s soap free and doesn’t contain any colours or perfumes – it’s gentle but thoroughly cleanses your skin.

Lacura Facial Cleansing Wipes – Cleansing wipes are used all year round and are perfect for fuss-free people! Cleanse, tone and moisturise – suitable for sensitive skin too!

Summer Skincare Essentials – Face Cream

Clarins Ultra Matte Rebalancing LotionPEREFCT if you suffer with oily skin in the summer, this mattifies and nourishes your skin leaving it feeling soft, smooth and hydrated.

La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra Light Cream (SPF 50) – Wonderful to use in the summer as this not only hydrates and moisturises your skin but it protects against pollution, sun and daily stress.

Summer Skincare Essentials – Serums

Lacura Aqua Complete Face Serum – I have a full review on this coming soon but this is my favourite serum at the moment. It’s a gel-cream like consistency and is absorbed by skin immediately leaving it feeling baby-soft and smooth! I just love it!

Argan 5 Lifting Radiance Serum – This is great when your skin needs a moisture-boost! It hydrates and lifts your skin for a radiant glow.

Summer Skincare Essentials – Acne/Scar Treatment

Sometimes we get the odd breakout and need a cream that we can count on!

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo – A highly-raved about cream that helps improve the appearance of scars and reduces breakouts! Use it on blemishes alone or scars your want to brighten, a little goes a long way and I’d recommend using it in the evening.

What you need to look out for when picking your summer skincare essentials?

So, above you can see some of my summer essentials and you might have noticed a little pattern – all the products hydrate and nourish your skin to the max!

It’s good to look for products that have hydrating, nourishing and revitalising formulas to ensure our skin is feeling fresh during the summer days but also to rejuvenate.

We also sweat more during the summer so I’m obviously going to write that you also need increase the amount of water your drink to make sure you don’t feel dehydrated or ill but this will also help the appearance of your skin too! 🙂

So there we have my summer skincare essentials and a few things to look out for when selecting products to take away on holiday with you.

Cooling, soothing and hydrating products are what you really need and anything that contains SPF is a bonus!

Take a few items with you and mix up your skincare routine – use different things during the day compared to the evening, this will also allow your skin to absorbs ingredients better!

I would LOVE to know if you use any of the above and what products you can’t live without in the summer! 🙂

    Great that they contain SPF, Layla! I love to use Clarins and La Roche Possay every now and then too! My summer essential would be the Avene Thermal Water Spray or that one by Evian! Absolutely a must when travelling! At least for me… Haha! Such a great post idea, sweetheart!! <3

      Awww thank you so much for your comment!!! Yes They’re great brands and I love the Evian water too but don’t use it as much as I did as I now opt for serums and gels haha! Thank you so much for your lovely comment though! 🙂 xxx

    I actually just bought Clarins for the first time and really like it. I got the sunscreen and really impressed, so I would look to try other items from their line for sure. I also recently started using serums and didn’t even know much about them before. Really glad I did because I can already see the difference already. This is such a great post – so informative! Love it.

    Have a great Sunday-).

      Awww I am SO happy that you like Clarins too – it’s a brand that I really love and haven’t been disappointed with anything from them!!! All their products are wonderful quality and really work well for me! Serums are wonderful too – they’re much more lightweight than moisturisers which is great but they hydrate, nourish and just give your skin a well-needed boost especially in the summer! Thank you for your lovely comment 🙂 xxxxx

    I have never used any of these products; but they sound great. I was still looking for a summer face cream, and La Roche Posay sounds great!
