Summer Holiday Skincare Tips


Hydration is Key.  During the summer, it’s important to stay hydrated both internally and externally. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from within. Additionally, use a lightweight and oil-free moisturiser to maintain moisture levels on the surface of your skin.   Our Perfect Prep Serum will leave your skin soft and moisturised…without blocking pores.

Sunscreen Protection.  Sunscreen is a must-have during the summer months. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Look for mineral-based sunscreens with ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which are gentle on the skin and provide effective sun protection.

Lightweight Coverage.  Swap heavy foundations for lightweight mineral makeup during summer. Mineral makeup is known for its breathable and natural finish. It provides coverage while allowing your skin to breathe, reducing the risk of clogged pores and breakouts in hot weather.  You can check out our collection of mineral makeup here.

Exfoliation.  Regular exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, radiant complexion. Opt for a gentle exfoliator                  that suits your skin type and use it once or twice a week to avoid over-exfoliation, which can lead to irritation.

Cleansing Routine.  With increased sweat and exposure to environmental factors during summer, maintaining a proper cleansing                    routine is crucial. Use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and sweat from your skin without stripping away its natural moisture.                      Did you know the loose minerals are naturally healing and allow pores to breath…even during hot weather and exercise!

Cooling Facial Mists.  Keep a refreshing facial mist handy during your summer travels. Look for mists with natural ingredients like                    cucumber or rosewater, which can instantly hydrate and soothe your skin while providing a refreshing sensation.

Eye Care.  The delicate skin around the eyes needs special attention. Apply an eye cream or gel with soothing ingredients like aloe                  vera or cucumber extract to reduce puffiness and keep the area hydrated.

Lip Protection.  Don’t forget to protect your lips from the sun. Use a lip balm with SPF to prevent sunburn and keep your lips                              moisturised. Look for lip products with natural ingredients like shea butter or coconut oil for added hydration.  We are OBSESSED                    with our Lip Moisture Drench.

After-sun Care.  If you’ve been out in the sun for an extended period, make sure to soothe your skin afterward. Apply a cooling gel                    or aloe vera-based product to calm and hydrate your skin, providing relief from any potential sunburn.
