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 Lotion – PEREFCT 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! 🙂
