That means sun, salt, and a lot of time outdoors.
I know I've preached about the importance of putting on sunscreen for the loads of benefits, but there is something else important to remember in summer.
For the most part of my life I've avoided moisturisers. Especially once hitting my teen years and wanting to avoid more pimples. I am yet to hit the point of not having a pimple here and there. So my answer to this when I was younger was to cleanse but skip the moisturising part.
Just over a year ago I started moisturising regularly and it's only highlighted how dull my skin was. I was aging, fast, and moisturising actually hasn't made me break out more than normal.
The lesson? Moisturise. It's important, your skin needs it weather you think it does or not.
Some creams I am loving, in addition to my daily face moisturiser and recommending for you.
Got some really dry skin? QV Face Rescue Gel is a very light, but intensive moisturiser, and i have been draining this baby quickly. I get dry patches on my face, with the constant break outs. I am loving a squirt of this pump action cream that I apply just to those patches.
Every sensitive skin, or suffer Eczema? Lush Dream Cream is a delicious deeply hydrating cream that is worth the splurge. It literally saved my sanity when Greenie was younger with his eczema. Best part? It's made from natural ingredients and is vegan!
Looking for that all over body moisturiser to add a little glow to your skin? Dove Body Summerglow is a moisturiser that adds a light colouring to your body in addition to feeding your skin. I love this especially in spring before my body has had the chance to get a bit of colour but when it's warm enough to start baring my pasty white self.
This is a new addition to my skin routine but something many people have sworn by to me. Triology's Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. It's basically a massive boost of lots of good vitamins for your skin. I have steered clear of oils in the past much for the reason I avoided moisturisers, for fear it will just create more breakouts. Surprisingly using this oil I haven't had any more than normal breakouts, and have actually found it helps to clear some areas that were breaking out. I put this on before bed at night as it is a little greasy until it soaks in but it has boosted my skins natural glow and helped with wrinkles which gets a massive thumbs up from me.
Are you moisturising? If so which products are you loving? If not, why not?
