Get The Glow: Your Summer Skincare Routine

You’ve got your summer wardrobe sorted – but have you thought about your summer skincare?! From making sure you’ve got enough UV protection to swapping out heavy creams for lighter options, these are our top tips for seeing your skin through the sunnier season.


Treat yourself to regular face masks

If you’re like us, we like to keep our make-up minimal on hot summer days – which means our skincare has to do some of the heavy lifting! A hydrating face mask is a great way to pack in a bit of pampering while also taking care of your skin and helping to keep your look healthy and refreshed. The Sakura Hydrating Tissue Mask is designed to give dull skin an instant summer glow using a formula enriched with plant extracts and hyaluronic acid.

Keep a good cleanser in your kit

Days spent sweating in the sun can leave your skin feeling oily and your pores clogged up. A good-quality cleanser is an important part of your skincare arsenal to make sure you feel fresh at the end of each day. A simple micellar water cleanser helps to gently remove dirt and impurities while boosting glow. Apply it after removing your makeup to restore your natural radiance.

Don’t forget the SPF

We’re all for having fun in the sun but staying protected in the sun is extra important in summer! While SPF products are a good idea all year round, it’s especially important to make sure you limit sun damage with your summer skincare. Look for moisturisers and day creams that incorporate SPF protection for an easy routine that uses minimal products.

Invest in anti-pigmentation products

Similarly, anti-pigmentation products should always appear in your skincare routine but become extra important during summer. Sun exposure can trigger excess melanin production, which can result in dark spots and an uneven skin tone. Ingredients such as Vitamin C can help improve the appearance of dark spots to keep your complexion smooth, even on days you’ll be out in the sun.

Hydrate – inside and out!

Of course, the summer heat means you need to up your water intake – not just for your parched mouth, but for your skin! Making sure you drink enough water is key to keeping your skin feeling fresh and hydrated, but you can also boost the effect with a good quality moisturiser. Ingredients such as aloe vera and hyaluronic acid are designed to lock in moisture to leave your skin feeling hydrated and re-plumped.

Swap heavy creams for lighter options

Increased temperatures often mean you don’t want to feel weighed down by heavy creams or products. Try swapping out essentials in your skincare routine with lighter alternatives, such as changing a day cream for a gel or lightweight moisturiser. The Rosy Glow cream is a perfect summer pick, featuring rosy pigments that give you a fresh-faced summer glow.

Try the Garnier BB Creams

An essential part of our summer makeup kit, Garnier BB creams combine SPF protection with ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and mineral pigments. The result is a soothing, moisturising and lightweight cream that gives a subtle summer glow. It’s easily incorporated into your everyday skincare or can even act as a one-product routine that ticks all your essential boxes.
