We’re all going on a Summer Holiday … or maybe not!
Even so, in the Summer season it is so important to look after yourself and your skin! Wanna know the reason the amazing Joan Collins looks so well at her age? Since she turned 21, she’s not let the sun see her delicate skin – especially her face! Yep, that’s the whole secret. Skincare and prevention of aging from the sun. Now, you’ll probably be aware that I am a bit of a Sun seeker, I love that blazing ball of heat and happiness as much as the next person! But it’s dawned on me that, at the grand old age of (almost) 25, I need to step up my Summer Skincare to ensure I don’t enter the latter part of my life looking like a baked potato!
The FIRST thing you need to think about is wearing a suitable SPF in your everyday skincare/make up regime. My life changed when I discovered Garnier’s BB Cream – I haven’t worn foundation ever since, and it comes with a built in SPF to help save your skin all day long!
That first step is so key to keeping your skin safe and to stave off premature aging! Once the basics are mastered, you can explore a little more!
In the past few weeks I’ve been lucky enough to work with the amazing Chemist UK – an amazing Family Pharmacy, on some skincare and Spring/Summer Must Haves – major post coming soon! But I thought I’d take some time to spread the knowledge and the best products from Chemist UK to get your skincare regime popping for the heat of Summer!
So, even if you aren’t heading abroad this year on your jollies, you really should invest in a good Sun Tan Lotion. There is a culture among some that if you apply Sun Cream, you wont tan. That is so so wrong and well, just silly! Applying a good sun tan lotion will enable you to get a healthy glow without burning and damaging your skin. Say goodbye to burnt bum cheeks – come on girls, we’ve all been there!
A good quality sun tan lotion at the correct SPF is essential for summer days! I LOVE P20! I stumbled upon it a few years back when my lovely mate introduced them to me – I loved them because it only recommends one application!
Obviously, if, like me, you plan on doing your best frog impressions and jumping into the swimming pool a thousand times a day, you’ll have to reply it liberally! P20 is amazing; it’s not sticky or gunky and it smells like a holiday in Mexico!
A must have for Summer!
Secondly, it is really important to take care of your skin over night. It’s the only time during summer that your skin gets a break. A great night time routine is so important – washing off your make up and any residue sun screen is so important and a good night cream will definitely prevent early aging!
This Nivea night cream is a bloody God send! I was so reluctant to start using any sort of anti aging product but this Night Cream is amazing. I apply it on naked skin and massage it into my face until it’s soft and gentle!
It really is the best thing for your skin in general but most importantly when you’re battering your face with those rays!
Another great thing to use is a sensible make up applicator! I love this Beauty Sponge from the Vintage Cosmetic Company – it is latex free and super soft! So amazing to use when applying your make up or BB Cream and it’s so easy to wash!
What would be on your Summer Skin Care list?
