7 Skincare Saviours To Beat The Heat This Summer


With your full of sun, travel, beach days, picnics in the park, barbecues and many more, you’ll obviously be spending a good amount of time in the sun. As great as this is for getting you that bronzed goddess glow that we all crave and look great with, it can cause a lot of damage on the skin and it’s equally as important to protect against the sun as it is to enjoy it. The glow isn’t worth it if your skin is protected and hydrated, trust us.

It’s important to take care of your skin all year round of course but it is especially important during summer since the hot weather will want you to keep makeup light, having good skin is the best thing for it as you’ll need less coverage and can just stick to light formulas such as bb creams or tinted moisturisers. Below are our top picks to help keep your skin in the best shape during summer.

1. SPF

The most obvious choice but one that certainly still needs mentioning. SPF is so unbelievably important to have on at any given season during the year, but with the hot sun beaming down at you for most of the day, it really is a must. Whilst everyone’s been told of its importance, not everyone understands the need to reapply SPF throughout the day, even if you are indoors and are near windows and even if there is a cloudy day (which can certainly happen during British summers). Invest in this tried and tested La Roche Posay Anthelios which has been a cult favourite for a long time and for good reason. They have different formulas for different skin types which means it’s a range that anyone and everyone can use.

2. Aftersun

Despite how much we do to protect ourselves from the sun, sunburns can still happen (or if sometimes we are just a little bit careless or forgetful when putting on our SPF). This After Sun Cool Down lotion from Sun Bum is made exactly for that. With aloe, cocoa butter and jojoba seed oil it’ll sure help to cool you down and relieve any pain of a sunburn.

3. Mist

Inspired by their Youth Elixir of the Queen of Hungary, Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is a multi-tasking mist which can set makeup, tone and tighten pores, give the skin a boost of radiance and keeps it hydrated. What’s great about this mist is that it can be used throughout the day whenever your skin is in need of a hydrating boost and some more glow. Very refreshing.

4. Hand cream

Often forgotten or deemed not as important in the world of skincare are the hands. They, of course, have a tendency to get dry too given the hot weather so make sure you always have some hand cream on you to keep them moisturised. This Neutrogena one doesn’t break the bank but does wonders to hydrate the hands without giving that sticky feeling.

5. Lip balm

Also often forgotten are the lips, these leads to them getting dry, cracked and flaky which are not the ways we want our lips to be described. Finding a lip balm with SPF in it is key and this Ultrasun 30 SPF lip balm does the trick.

6. Vitamin c serum

With a gorgeous tan usually comes with the darkening of your pigmentation which something we definitely wouldn’t want. A vitamin c serum does wonders for brightening up the skin and help lighten up that pigmentation. This serum from Cosrx is very potent and will keep your skin glowing.

After a long day out in the sun, it’s important to rejuvenate your skin during the night and help it repair and prep for the next day. This moisturising mask from Summer Friday is plenty hydrating and the name fits great too.
