Skincare; Oily, dry, combination, sensitive, who knows where to start? It is not an easy thing to get your head around that’s for sure! Not made any easier by the fact that what works for you in winter then only then corrupts your skin in the summer. Endless conversations over coffee dates about stress-related flare-ups, breakouts you thought you’d be too old for now and then of course the inevitable heartbreak that comes with ageing.
Our skin can be less challenging through the summer months, the oil prevents any dryness you experience through the winter and if you’re a sun worshipper then there’s no denying the instant improvement with a tan. However, here are some much-needed tips to get the best from your skin, for it to be at its healthiest from the inside out and allow us to revert away from makeup to cover up these mishaps.
Here’s our super quick summer skincare guide that will help prevent sun damage, oil build-up, dirt, premature ageing, acne and open pores.

We all now know the importance of SPF for preventing skin cancer but if you want to remain to look youthful this is the secret weapon. We can be put off due to the thought of wearing something super oily and heavy on our skin every day but there are many products for every skin type so we can find the right one for you.
The daily recommendation for everyday is a minimum of SPF 30
The reason SPF is so crucial is that the UV rays from the sun degrade collagen in the skin, this leads to unnecessary wrinkles as well as an overproduction of ‘melanin’ (our skin pigment) creating pigmentation flaws and age spots. Allergy or acne-prone skin will benefit from non-fragrance and preservative-free products, while those with dry skin will want to seek out daily moisturizers with sunscreen added.
