Summer Skin Refresh! Jess’s Beauty Routine for the Hot Months Ahead!
With summer just around the corner and many promised months of hot sunshine on the horizon it’s more important than ever to take good care of our skin, I think it’s so easy to sometimes get caught up in the day to day tasks of life and forget to take care of ourselves but the good news is we’ve got enough time to get into a great routine just in time for the great weather!
First things first, cleansing your skin is a MUST! A lot of people don’t realize just how much dirt can gather on your skin, even if you don’t wear any make up. Cleansing it first thing in the morning and last thing at night is the best way to ensure your skin stays lovely, clean and unclogged! For this my favourite product to use is Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser, you can use this with water or without but I prefer to use without, I give it a good rub into the skin then gently wipe it off with a hot muslin cloth removing any dead skin cells and any dirt.
Gentle Skin Cleanser- Cetaphil’s best-seller and fan favorite cleanser. As gentle as it gets- soothes and cleanses, leaving skin smooth and soft. This mild yet effective cleanser is perfect for daily use on face, and even body. Available in a variety of sizes: 2 oz ($3.49), 4 oz. ($5.49), 8 oz. ($7.99), 16 oz ($10.79)
When it comes to getting a good ol dose of Vitamin D into our bodies we obviously have to be careful and use a good sun cream to protect ourselves from that gorgeous sunshine. My go to product is Australian Gold. Not only does it have a huge range of SPFs but it smells amazing! The scent literally optimizes summer for me.
Natural caramel bronzer enriches skin with an instant bronzed glow for a radiant-looking tan. Available in a variety of SPFs. Standard size ($8.99)
Of course as the natural tan is kicking in it’s really important to keep your skin as hydrated as possible! The last thing we want is for our skin to dry out and start to peel! I find the product that does the best job for this is Cetaphil’s DailyAdvance lotion, it’s ultra hydrating and can be used all over the body including the face! I also love to use this daily to ensure my skin remains smooth and moisturized.
DailyAdvance Lotion- Instantly replenishes, hydrates and protects dry, sensitive skin for 24 hours, leaving it soft and smooth. This lotion can be used all over the body, and is gentle enough even to use on the face. Available in 8 oz. ($10.99) or 16 oz ($13.79)
Drinking plenty and plenty of water is the last vital step in my beauty routine for the summer! And it’s free! It’s a well-known fact that we sweat more when we’re hot and it’s really important to replenish those fluids by keeping our intake of water high! This shouldn’t be too difficult; I always find a nice big glass of water on a hot summer’s day is ultra refreshing!
So that’s it! Cleanser, sun cream, plenty of moisturizing lotion and a healthy dose of water are my 4 essentials for great skin this summer!
Tell me, what’s your favourite beauty routine to keep your skin fresh in the hot months?
Much Bespoke Love
