Tips for healthy summer skin

Smooth, firm and glowing. Those are some of the things we envision when it comes to summer skin but in reality, it’s easy to neglect our skin in the summer. Lazy summer days make it easy to forget about your skin regime.
Follow these easy steps for a summer glow, without breaking a sweat.


The first step to glowing skin for summer is to know how to properly clean your face. Summer is the time when dirt, oils and sunscreen tend to clog our pores, so cleansing is necessary every day.
Use foaming cleansers instead of creamy ones. These help lift the dirt from the face and leave your skin clean and breathable.

Exfoliate at least once a week

Dead cells sit on the surface of your skin making it look dull and dry. Exfoliating will remove those dead cells leaving room for more radiant, healthier summer skin to shine through.
Tip: Do this prior to make-up application and your make-up will last longer.

Moisturise your skin

In the summer it is tempting to ease up on moisturising because your skin may not feel as dry, but good moisturisers work over time, promoting healthy skin with consistent use.

Make friends with water

High temperatures and a lot of time outdoors lead to dehydration.
Try to drink eight glasses of water every day. This will help maintain the critical moisture balance of your body and skin, and also help flush out toxins from your system.
Tip: If you love drinking caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!
