5 simple summer skincare tips

 Here’s 5 simple and effective skincare tips that will have you glowing all summer long, from the inside out!

INVEST IN SPF

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen, repeat! For us Aussies, it’s so important to invest in a good SPF to protect ourselves from sun damage… and to keep us looking super youthful, like we’re 16 forever. With Australia having one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, it’s essential that we protect ourselves by wearing sunscreen all day every day. We recommend adding a face, body and lip balm SPF of 30 – 50+ to your daily beauty routine and to reapply every 1-2 hours that you are in the sunshine.

NATURAL BEAUTY

Less is more this summer when it comes to makeup! Especially on those hot 30 degree days.
To give you the perfect summer glow and to let your skin breath, we recommend opting for mineral makeup or a BB Cream during the day which includes SPF for a lighter feel and more natural look.

OVERSIZED ACCESSORIES

Slip, slop, slap… but in the most stylish way possible of course. Oversized accessories are your friends this summer when it comes to beach hats, sunglasses and long sleeve white linen shirts for those long beach days. The bigger the better!

LOCK IN MOISTURE WITH SERUM 

Designed to deliver high concentrations of active ingredients, serums are effective at addressing specific skin care concerns such as pigmentation, acne, aging and hydration.  A hydrating serum that incorporates hyaluronicacids lightweight assist in keeping the skin hydrated. Apply your serum before moisturisers and oils to lock in moisture.

KEEP HYDRATED

And we’re not just talking about your water intake! It’s just as important to keep hydrated on the outside as it is on the inside. Here’s our top tips for keeping hydrated this summer
  • Increase daily water intake
  • Treat yourself to regular facials from Belén to decongest your skin and to improve your skins hydration
  • Invest in a Vitamin C serum or moisturiser to give your skin an extra layer of protection and to help collagen production. We love Sunday Riley's C.E.O 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum from from MECCA
  • Moisturise daily, both face and body
