As much as we love summer, the sweltering heat brings on a whole host of beauty concerns. As well as melting makeup and out-of-control frizz, it tends to be the season in which skin problems flare up. Think oily spots, blackheads, sunburn and more. But summer is too fun to spend time stressing. Simply add these products to your beauty arsenal and address your beauty woes in style.
PROBLEM 1: Fretting over the frizz
SOLUTION: The heat has gone to your head—literally—and now your dry strands are soaking up moisture from humid air, causing them to swell and frizz. Grab our Botanicals Reparative Camelina Smoothing Frizz Antidote, which nourishes and protects hair with Camelina and Coconut Oil whilst taming rebellious fly-aways. Adding a weekly intensive treatment to your hair routine like the Camelina Smoothing Mask will also keep your locks hydrated.
PROBLEM 2: Blemishes be gone
SOLUTION: Heat and humidity in summer tend to wreak havoc leaving skin congested with dirt, oil and sunscreen. Use our Pure Clay Red Algae Exfoliating Face Scrub to clear away dead skin cells and refine pores. Salicylic acid and pure clay will draw out impurities leaving skin feeling renewed.
PROBLEM 3: Shiny, not so happy
SOLUTION: It’s steaming up outside and your sweat glands are in overdrive, making your complexion super slick. Look for formulas labelled ‘oil-free’, ‘mattifying’ or ‘anti-shine’ to nix any sheen and help your makeup stay put for longer. Also, choose a matte finish foundation, such as Infallible Matte 24HR to avoid a shiny summer complexion.
PROBLEM 4: Desert dryness
SOLUTION: UV exposure, air-con and dry heat all make for a very parched complexion. Hyaluronic Acid is the critical ingredient you need to make skin plump and radiant once again. Although it sounds complicated, the body actually makes it naturally already, though as we get older this slows down. Our Revitalift range with Hyaluronic Acid will boost and reboot skin to get that youthful glow back.
PROBLEM 5: Can’t tan, won’t tan
SOLUTION: The goody two shoes among us will know, sun damaged skin is an absolute no-no. Not only is there a serious risk of skin cancer but the sun is also incredibly ageing. So, it’s time to up the ante on your SPF each and every day with our Revitalift SPF15 Day Cream. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on a suntan either. Back to Bronze will have you glowing like you’ve just arrived back from holiday.
