It is Summer time and the weather is fine. Here are some of our tips to get gorgeous summer skin
Switch it up.
The hot summer weather means more humidity which equals more oil and grime on your face. You will need to adjust your regimen to match the summer time conditions. For example you may need to change your cleanser to something with glycolic to aid in a deeper cleanse. To further assist in removing dirt, excess oil and sunscreen. Also try to seek out ingredients like Vitamin C and E as these guys aid in neutralising free radicals from the sun and pollution.
Exfoliate your entire body.
It is even more important to exfoliate in summer to help get rid of sunscreen and oil that builds up on your skin. Your skin can handle more frequent exfoliation in summer as it is not as dry and sensitive. do this 2-3 times a week from head to toe.
Wear Sunscreen EVERYDAY!
Ensure that everyday you have SPF 15 to 30 above and below the neck. Wearing makeup is not enough protection, layer sunscreen under your makeup to make sure you are covered. Ensure you also cover your arms and legs if you are out and about during the day.
