Without sounding terribly English…it’s HOT! No, we don’t want to moan and we love the sun (safely), but the hot weather has got us thinking about the best way to keep skin hydrated in the rising temperatures.
Anyone else struggling to sleep in this heat? If the lack of sleep and hot sleeping conditions is causing your complexion to look a little puffy when you wake up, start your routine with Skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels. The targeted patches are applied to freshly cleansed skin on the forehead and smile lines, delivering an instant cooling and hydrating effect with added antioxidant protection.
Mists are a great way to keep skin cool and hydrated without ruining your makeup. We love Omorovicza Magic Moisture Mist, the two-phase oil and water components combine to deliver weightless, long-lasting hydration for the skin. Keep spritzing throughout the day to keep moisture levels steady.
Top tip! Keep your face spritz or mist in the fridge for double the cooling & refreshing effect.
SPF is a no-brainer regardless of the weather, but when it’s hot the thought of lathering on a thick creamy SPF might not be ideal. We love the light texture and easy application of Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen SPF 50 or Susan Posnick Brush On Block SPF 30. The lightweight powder formulations can be applied under or on top of makeup, making re-application super easy!
Another great way to keep your skin protected and cool in the hot weather is a spray SPF. We love Coola Sport Sunscreen Sprays, with a variety of scents & SPF 30 or 50 to choose from, there’s an option for everyone.
You’ve battled your way through the sweaty commute, spent a little too long basking in the sun on your lunch break and now your skin is feeling thirsty. Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Water Burst is the tall glass of water your skin needs! Upon application, the lightweight gel and innovative emulsion technology transforms into a burst of hydration, flooding skin with brightening nutrients, protective polyphenols and anti-ageing peptides for a radiant and hydrated complexion.
You can’t get much better than Vitamin B5 for rehydrating and replenishing skin’s moisture levels. The brand new Beautycoll Vitamin B5 Hydrating Gel is fast becoming our new favourite hydrating serum. It’s enriched with Vitamin B5, B3 and Sodium PCA for plumped and hydrated skin. Sodium PCA is a naturally occurring component of skin and is responsible for the natural moisturising factors that keep skin hydrated. It works by attracting moisture from the air and uses that to deliver hydration.
Vitamin B5 is a natural humectant and helps to plump, hydrate and stabilise skin’s barrier function. Vitamin B3 helps to brighten and improve skin’s clarity, elasticity and barrier functions whilst also erasing discolouration for an improved skin tone and texture.
This serum is suitable for the majority of skin types thanks to its ability to combat dehydration, fight signs of ageing as well as reduce oil thanks to Niacinamide.
Another must-have ingredient for boosted skin hydration is Hyaluronic Acid. SkinCeuticals HA Intensifier is formulated with a high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid to dramatically increase firmness, elasticity and hydration.
The 1.3% high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid delivers long-lasting hydration, helping to reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles for a smoother skin texture. SkinCeuticals HA Intensifier is also enriched with a blend of 10% Proxylane™ and 2% Licorice Root Extract, which work together to preserve and support the Hyaluronic Acid levels.
