Tipper’s skincare favourites for summer glow

Summer is such a great season. With lots of time spent outside, enjoying the garden, nipping down to the beach, or relaxing in the park with family and friends – there’s so much fun to be had at this time of year.

 

With the warmer weather upon us, summer is a good time to switch up your summer skincare routine. You can put away those rich, heavy-duty creams and opt for lighter serums and mists to freshen up your skin and get that summer glow we all crave.

 

Here are a few of my favourite products to use in summer.

 

For your face

Alongside a good facial SPF, there are a few products that I absolutely swear by at this time of year to keep my skin glowing and hydrated.

 

With turmeric and rosehip seed oil boosting radiance and sodium hyaluronate for hydration, Wild Rose Beauty Serum is my perfect summer serum. Another addition to my routine is Orange Flower Facial Oil, it looks and smells like summer in a bottle and is perfect for making my skin shimmer.

 

My summertime tip for dewy looking skin is to boost hydration. Rejuvenating Frankincense Face Mask is my top mask loaded with sodium hyaluronate for an overnight fix. I always keep a bottle of Reviving White Tea Facial Mist on my desk or in my bag, too, ready for a quick cooling and hydrating spritz. It smells wonderfully fresh.

 

For your body

In the summer, I like to spend some extra time on my body care routine. With the warmer weather upon us, we’ll soon be swapping our cosy jumpers for little dresses, jeans for shorts, and heavy boots for sandals. There’s more skin on show so now’s the time to get it in tip-top shape and summer-ready.

 

A quick, invigorating buff in the shower keeps my skin looking and feeling great. I find the Massage Mitt easy to use and effective. Its natural flax fibres help to cleanse, exfoliate and massage, revealing healthier and more evenly toned skin.

 

I love Geranium and Orange Body Balm for making my summer skin glow, and the sunny aroma always makes me smile as I warm a little in my fingertips. Aromatic Shower Gel evokes memories of happy Mediterranean holidays, sun baked hillsides and the aroma of herbs in the air – it’s like a hug in a bottle.

 

For your hands and feet

We mustn’t forget to look after our hands and feet in the summer. Help to make your fresh mani-pedi pop against beautifully refreshed skin with a few of these skincare favourites.

 

With nourishing oils and restorative herbal extracts Comfrey and Mallow Foot Balm is perfect for pampering parched winter heels ready for summer sandals. Looking after my garden in the summer is tough on my hands, so Frankincense Intense™ Hand Treatment Serum is my evening replenishing treat and moment of zen in one bottle.

 

If your cuticles need a little extra care, Organic Argan Oil is a fantastic vitamin E rich oil that I love to use after days spent outside in the sun.
