Summer is the perfect time to re-think your beauty regime. During the summer your skin needs lots of TLC, the perfect excuse to try a few new products. To help you make the right choices, let’s consider a few summer beauty regime essentials, from gentle cleansers to homemade face masks.
1. Use gentle cleansers
During the summer you won’t need such a heavy cleanser, if you’re using an oil or cream you might want to switch to a light foaming cleanser. When you’re choosing a cleanser, these considerations may come in handy.
- If your skin is oily you may benefit from a cleanser that contains lactic acid, light-gel-based cleansers are a good option for oily skin.
- If you have dry skin you might prefer a creamier cleanser, without acids.
2 . It’s all about sun cream
Sun cream is a real must during the summertime, it’s best to wear a factor 30 or higher, to ensure the best level of protection. When you’re choosing a sun cream, prioritise eco-friendly and ethical brands. Mineral sun creams are considered a greener option compared with traditional chemical sun creams. If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to choose a mineral-based product. Colorescience has a great range of mineral-based sun creams, as well as an array of different make-up for sensitive skin.
3. Natural freebies
During the summertime, many of us go for a more natural look. We also tend to look for skincare products that are made with natural, plant-based ingredients, just like this eyelash serum from Borboleta. There are plenty of natural products you can use to get a beautiful summer glow. Try these face mask recipes to get started:
To get younger-looking skin, try using a green tea face mask. Simply make yourself a pot of green tea, cool the tea, and then add a dash of baking soda. Once you’ve mixed the ingredients, you can apply them to your face using a thick make-up brush. Leave the mask on for at least fifteen minutes.
To get healthy summer skin, coconut oil is a great moisturizer. It’s packed with vitamins that will keep your skin healthy and smooth. Add a dash of honey to make this face mask extra special. Honey has anti-aging properties, meaning it’s a great ingredient for skincare.
4. Vitamin C
To perfect your summer skincare regime you’ll need some vitamin C serum. When you use a vitamin C serum you’ll reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C can also help the skin to produce collagen. There are many more benefits of using a vitamin C serum, including:
- Can help you to ensure an even skin tone.
- Added protection against UV rays.
- Vitamin C can brighten up your skin.
5. Keep it green
When you’re creating your summer beauty regime, it’s important to keep it green. Focus on earth-friendly brands, and be mindful of how many products you purchase. Choose biodegradable products where you can, and recycle all your packaging.
During the summertime it’s so important to take great care of your skin. Now’s the perfect time to test out a few new products, and create a beauty regime that you love. Finding new skin care and make-up products to use is great fun, and it’s a lovely way to treat yourself at the beginning of summer. I love using Makeup Muddle blog to find good makeup recommendations. One great way of discovering new beauty products is via a beauty box subscription. Whether it’s summer fragrances or a new sun cream there are plenty of ways to treat your skin.
