Summer is nearly here, and for most of us, its time to start planning our summer holiday.
Holidays are great for relaxing and recharging, but if you're not careful, they can play havoc on your skin. Follow these six top tips for a perfect healthy summer glow.
1. Drink plenty of water!
In the hot summer weather its important to make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Dehydration can leave you light-headed, nauseous and cause the skin to dry out. Make sure you schedule regular drink breaks or keep a water bottle handy, so you (and your skin) can stay well hydrated.
2. Eat more Fruit!
Fruit, as well as being a delicious treat on a hot day it's packed full of vitamins that are great for your skin.
Plus fruits like cantaloupe, watermelon and blueberries are packed full of antioxidants, boost skin hydration and help aid sunburn recovery. So don't forget to hit the fruit bar at the breakfast buffet. For an extra skin nutrient boost, try an ELEMIS Superfood facial for a fresh vitamin-packed glow.
3. Invest in floppy beach hat!
In case you needed another reason to buy one of those super chic floppy beach hats, it also serves as a great way to keep your harmful UV rays off your face.
4. Don't forget to moisturise!
Increase temperature can make your skin oily which might tempt you to skip your regular moisturiser. It's best to switch to a lightweight moisturiser to use after your daily cleanser and toner. We recommend ELEMIS Daily defence shield. Its a perfect base for make-up, with broad protection against environmental factors including UV rays, high energy visible light and pollution.
5. Skip the makeup!
On sweltering days, its best to let your skin breath, so skip your heavy foundation and go makeup free for the day. (If you really can't go completely barefaced, try a lightweight BB cream.)
6. Exfoliate your skin from top to toe!
Summertime means floaty dresses, shorts and spaghetti straps, so don't let dull skin ruin a great outfit. Exfoliate all of your skin, two or three times a week for that fresh summer look. (Exfoliating will also help fake tans look more natural and streak free.) Why not try an ELEMIS Intensely cleansing Lime & Ginger salt scrub.
