Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.

With summer fast approaching, there is no better time to perfect your summer skincare routine. While you will need to use products that will seriously hydrate your skin in the summer as a result of the warm weather, which are best? Sea salt, sand and humidity can all leave your skin feeling seriously dehydrated, so in this blog, I’m sharing the best skin products for summer, as well as some tips and tricks to ensure you maintain your bronzed glow for longer.
While people often think that beauty sets are best bought as gifts, there’s nothing wrong with buying one for your own pleasure. As the name suggests, this radiance set contains all the skincare products required to restore a healthy glow to your skin. Packaged conveniently in a vibrant orange cosmetics bag, the Darphin Ultimate Radiance Set contains a foaming cleaner, illuminating serum, moisturising gel clean and an oil solution. The best part about this kit is that each product works in synergy to restore glowing skin. What’s more, this set contains products under 50ml, and so it’s perfect to take on your travels!
During the summer, it’s easy for our skin to become dehydrated. Often, the more time we spend in the sun, the tighter our skin feels. To ensure your make-up glides on like it usually would, I recommend the MAC Prep + Prime Essential Oils Stick. This multi-tasking stick contains a blend of various conditioning agents that can help create a smooth surface. What’s more, this product is suitable for all skin types, and can even be used on your hands, cuticles, elbows and knees, so you really are getting fantastic value for money! Available at just £21.50 and in most airports, this stick is perfect to slide into your carry-on bag for on-the-go rehydration.
Unfortunately, regular balms don’t always repair our skin the way we’d like it to, but with the May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate, you can really see and feel the difference! Unlike many balms available on the high-street, the Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate by May Lindstrom offers instant relief. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin, this dream jar helps reduce redness and irritation and is so gentle that it can also be lathered around the eye and lip area. I love this product, and I think you will too!
I understand that not everyone is able to invest as much as they’d like in skincare, and so the Miele En Mousse Cleanser by Lancôme is an excellent alternative. Even though this product is a facial wash, not a balm, it helps free the skin of impurities, eliminating dirt and excess oils as a result of the hot weather. While many facial washes can often further dry out your skin, this facial wash does the complete opposite and leaves you feeling fresh. It smells amazing, too!
Maintaining your natural glow in the summer can be just as difficult as keeping your skin hydrated in the winter, but with these products, you can be certain that you will not only be restoring lost moisture to your skin, but will be providing it with some much-needed protection from the sun, too.
What are your holy grail summer skincare products? I’d love to know!
