Sun, sea and sand join forces to battle against your skin in summer, it’s time to shake up your skincare routine and make sure you’re prepared to protect and perfect your skin.
If you’re basking in the Summer sun on holiday this year (whether it be in your back garden or jet setting around the world) make sure you have everything you need to hand to keep your skin protected.
The main thing to remember during the Summer months is sun protection, it will keep you from burning, reduce the risk of sun damage and help you avoid early ageing, it’s a miracle product!
Choose a product that suits your needs with at least SPF15 protection to make sure you’re suitably protected, but there is a range of different options that you can use.
If you have dry skin, opt for a cream based product like Ambre Solaire Moisturising Protection Spray SPF 20 which is enriched with Vitamin E, this will keep your skin hydrated and protected for the sun’s harmful rays. Plus, you can use the spray upside down to make sure you’re covered!
If you have oily skin, try a clear spray such as Ambre Solaire Clear Spray SPF30. This will keep you fresh, plus it’s entirely transparent, non-greasy and instantly absorbs into the skin. Perfect.
Don’t forget, the skin on your face is different to the skin on your body so it needs a different kind of protection. Try using the Phytomer Sun Solution Sun Screen SPF 30 which is specifically formulated for face and sensitive skin, it’s light but keeps you completely protected.
It’s important to look after your skin from the start to the end of the day, so when the sun goes down, whip out the after sun to soothe and cool. We love the Ambre Solaire Calming After Sun Gel which has 24 hour hydration as well as aloe vera to soothe any pesky sunburn.
But if you want to get glowing without the UV rays there are plenty of products out there to choose from, opt for a gradual tan product in Summer. These are perfect for those of you who have never used fake tan as they’re easy to use, look natural and offer a gradual bronze rather than an instant tan so you can tailor it to your taste. We love the St Tropez products available on The Hut, especially the St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan for Face and the St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan for Face.
