This summer, I’ve really been into taking care of my skin. More than I usually do. Winter time, I am on a crusade to ensure my skin feels hydrated and doesn’t dry out with the cold. However, with my summer skincare, I tend to relax it. The sun always makes my skin feel good and I find because I’m eating more salads and drinking more water, I don’t have to worry about hydration.
This time, I’ve upped the ante with the products I’m using and I’m noticing a huge difference. These are products that I’m definitely going to keep using into Autumn. So, not to keep them to myself, here are my summer skincare new additions…
My summer skincare
I very rarely change up my skincare routine, once I find something I love, I tend to stick to it. However, one thing I do like to try is cleansers. I decided to take the plunge and try out the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. I love this product and it’s now my favourite cleanser. It’s not milky, but it feels so nice on the skin. It’s super hydrating and my skin feels so smooth and cleansed afterwards.
With my skincare, I love to introduce an additional serum or product to add before I put my moisturiser on. Recently, I’ve been playing with two. The first being NIOD Hydration Vaccine. It’s a thick gel so you only need a little bit, but it goes a long way! It just gives my skin a little extra boost. If you wanted to, you could wear it as your top moisturiser, just use a little extra more. The second product that I’ve been giving a go is Ren Skincare Perfect Canvas Skin Enhancing Serum. It’s a great primer for creating a base for your moisturiser and helps keep your make up in place all day.
Summer skincare: the added extras
There are two other products that I’ve been introducing to my summer skincare. One of them is a sleeping mask, which a work friend gave me a travel size one to have a go with. I’ve been loving using Dr Botanicals Apothecary Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask two/ three times a week. It feels nice to put on and in the morning my skin just feels so much plumper and bouncy. I really want to try out a few more products from them now I know how much I love this one.
The final product I’ve been loving this summer is & Other Stories Topanga Waves Hand Lotion. It is literally a beach holiday in a bottle. It lives in our bathroom and I love using it just before I head off to work. Not only does it give my hands a new lease of life, but I’m obsessed with the tropical scent. Absolutely loving it!
