For a hydrated and protected complexion
Summer can leave your skin feeling dehydrated so it’s important to reach for products that keep your skin hydrated while also providing protection from the sun’s UV rays.
Start by gently cleansing your skin with E.l.f. Skin’s Pure Skin Cleanser to get rid of any impurities and excess oils. Follow with Garnier’s Hydrating Sheet Masks to give your skin a boost of hydration.
To lock in all that moisture, always apply a moisturiser day and night. During the day, apply Monuskin’s SPF15 Moisturiser, which hydrates and balances your skin while also offering extra sun protection. In the evening, use Dr. Eve_R Youth’s Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid Night Moisturiser to hydrate and brighten your skin.
For a fresh, everyday look
The key to achieving a dewy, natural makeup look for summer is to prep your skin properly before applying your makeup. For a fresh, effortless look, try a soft, pink monochromatic makeup look.
For your eyes, reach for The Beauty Crop’s Espresso Your Love Palette to give your eyes a nice pop of colour. This palette is also formulated with caffeine and antioxidants to help reduce puffiness and brighten your eye area.
Next, add a blush like The Beauty Crop’s Blush Duo to give you a natural flushed look. Its cream and powder blush formula gives you dewy, rosy cheeks to flaunt all summer long. Finish your monochromatic look with Revlon’s ColorStay Matte Lite Crayon. It’s super lightweight, making it comfortable to wear even during the hottest days.
Neutral, lighter nail colours are trendy for summer 2022. Finish off your look with Nailkind’s Natural Nail Wear in the shade Pillow Talk, a soft and neutral pink that’s perfect for everyday wear.
HAIR & BODY PREP
For smooth skin, luscious hair and soft heels for sandal season
The hot, summer months can wreak havoc on your hair. To repair any damage and prevent your strands from drying out, incorporate a hair mask into your weekly hair care routine like Umberto Giannini’s Urgent Repair Protein Treatment Mask. This deep conditioning hair treatment strengthens and nourishes your hair, giving your hair a healthy shine and bounce.
Summer is the best time to bring out your fake tan for a golden glow. To ensure an even tan, make sure you exfoliate your skin before using a tan like Vita Liberata’s Tinted Tanning Mist, which gives your face and body a natural, sunkissed glow.
Summer, also known as sandal season, is also a time to bring out your favourite sandals and show off your pedicure. To help prep your feet for sandal season, try this softening eucalyptus foot cream from anatomicals, which deeply moisturises and treats dry or cracked heels. To prep your body from head-to-toe, add Nursem’s Caring Body Cream to your body care routine to help keep your skin moisturised throughout summer while also caring for your skin barrier.
