Summer Ready Skin Guide
A healthy glow and smooth, plump skin is a common goal for the Summer. We encourage a less is more look that will take you from beach to bar, office to bbq and everything in between during the warmer months. The key? The right skin products combined with in clinic treatments where possible.
The most essential product in any Summer skincare regime is a sunscreen - whether you’re spending time outdoors or simply walking to and from work, protection from UVA and UVB rays will keep your skin looking younger for longer.
Our top products for every makeup bag this Summer include:
Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush On Sunscreen: With a self-dispensing brush, this mineral finishing powder provides safe, non-irritating and instant UVA and UVB sun protection as well as light coverage for the skin. Colorescience Sunforgettable is a self-dispensing brush on powder, making it easy to apply and reapply throughout the day, whatever your activity may be.
Colorescience Even Up Primer: An advanced 3 in 1 formula, Colorescience Even Up is a mineral makeup with a powerful brightening complex that is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of pigmentation. Ideal for daily use as a sunscreen, primer for makeup application and skin colour corrector.
Aspect Envirostat Dry Touch Sunscreen: This SPF 50 is a daily essential in any skincare regime. Providing broad-spectrum dry-touch protection, this chemical sunscreen is suitable for facial and body use offering four hours water-resistant protection that feels dry to the touch.
As well as these topical treatments, it’s also important to consider what is penetrating the skin. Now is the time to change your active. Dropping Retinol during the Summer is often a good idea as it can make you more sun sensitive. Instead, we recommend Simply Brilliant for pigment protection - a gentle yet powerful brightening serum that eliminates dark spots and pigmentation for more evenly toned skin; Defy for exfoliation - an effective exfoliating cream that uses a gentle, triple acid formula that sloughs away dead cells and resurfaces the skin to create a luminous complexion; and Vitamin C for brightening. We love Aspect Dr Active C Serum and Societe Triple C Vitamin Therapy Serum.
When it comes to in clinic, you want to look for treatments that slough off dead skin cells and help to create a fresh, clear complexion. Dermablading is a great option as it helps moisturisers and serums work to their full potential, and leaves your complexion smooth and primed for makeup.
Right, your skin’s all ready, now all you need is a cocktail by the poolside.
