6 Products You Need For Summer Ready Skin
Want to achieve summer ready skin? Read on to uncover the skin care you need this season to gain that two-weeks-on-a-beach radiance...
Despite the weather's inevitable ups and downs during a British summertime, we still all crave that 'summer glow', even if it is pouring down outside. In fact, it makes us even more determined to maintain glowing skin in summer, don't you think? As we all know, too much sun is extremely damaging for your skin, so you're much better off ditching the harmful UV rays for a summertime skincare routine to achieve that sun-kissed luminosity. As the Summer solstice makes an appearance once again, the Face The Future team have curated a new edit below of the holy grail products you need for summer ready skin.
A first aid kit for a pasty, sallow complexion, the Pestle and Mortar Glowing Duo contains the Hydrate lightweight moisturiser and the Glow Drops self tanning serum. Keep your skin illuminated and hydrated and switch up your face care in summer with this super duo, charged with Hyaluronic Acid to lock-in moisture. This perfect pair also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and protect against environmental damage. If you haven't tried tanning drops before, they're a revelation. All you have to do is mix a few drops in with your moisturiser and you're good to glow.
Summer skin care fact: you can still catch a beautiful tan whilst protecting your skin from UV radiation. Just don't sit in the sun for hours, perhaps. If you've applied your Factor 50 and the sun has given you a bit of a natural tan, the HydroPeptide Nourishing Glow Body Shimmer Oil is the ideal enhancer. Its nourishing, glimmering formulation is charged with Mica illuminating minerals and a concoction of moisturising oils like Jojoba and Sunflower for skin that feels deeply conditioned as it radiates shine. Simply swipe the non-sticky oil across your entire body for a golden sheen to be envious of.
As skin experts, we do believe that nutrition plays a part in the health of our skin and that oral supplements can most definitely improve your inner and outer glow. Top up on your Vitamin D if the sunshine isn't playing ball this Summer with the Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Glow Synergy Duo. Containing the Skin Omegas+ 60 Capsules and the Skin VIT A+ 60 Capsules, this powerful pairing will boost collagen and hydration in your skin whilst also taking care of your wellbeing so you can feel great on the inside, too.
There's nothing worse than a streaky tan. There's also nothing worse than when it dries your skin out. If you do experience dry skin in summer, this is your Summer godsend in a bottle. The Organic Pharmacy Self Tan is a self-tanning cream that reveals a faux yet natural-looking tan after just three hours, offering the most safe approach to tanning without a UV ray in sight. It is formulated with an EcoCert-approved DHA (the ingredient that makes your skin darker) which is derived from natural Sugar Beets. This spectacular vegan formula is also enriched with trusty Shea Butter alongside Coconut Oil and Sesame Oil for an ultra-moisturising finish. It is also infused with Apricot for a subtle fruity fragrance ideal for the summer months without that 'biscuity' scent.
It is incredibly normal for your skin to dry out in Summer. The extra sunlight absorbs the moisture from your skin and makes it dehydrated. This can leave your skin looking a little dull and parched of the hydration and glow we all crave in the hotter months. Get your skin illuminating again with the Codage Exfoliating Balm. Supercharged with large sugar crystals and fine rice particles, this oily balm works to slough away dead skin cells for velvet soft skin that holds a shine. As you exfoliate, your skin will also absorb moisture from nourishing Shea Butter and Macadamia Oil for even more natural radiance.
If there's one skincare product you need to stock up on this Summer, it's SPF. You should be wearing SPF protection on your face every day of the week but it is even more vital when the Summer months roll by due to the huge increase in sun exposure. Yes, a little sun if good for you, but only when you have SPF on. This Ultrasun Glimmer SPF 30 is charged with antioxidants to protect and neutralise free radicals caused by sun rays with a broad spectrum protection of SPF 30. Its gel texture is formulated with shimmer particles to give your face and body a beautiful sheen as you apply for instant bronze goddess vibes.
