Whether you’re laying out by the pool or travelling through Europe this summer, it’s important to make your skincare count. Swap a few of those heavy-duty winter creams and serums in favour of SPF, exfoliators and dry oils, which will protect you skin and keep it hydrated at the same time.
Red Earth Sheer Canvas Moisturising BB Cream, $28
Who wants to be applying layer after layer of thick foundation only to sweat it all off? Choose a BB cream since it’s lightweight, provides enough coverage for your pimples and blackheads, but also features SPF to protect your skin from the sun.
Avene Thermal Spring Water, $9.99
Give your face some instant hydration without even ruining your makeup. How? Thermal water is a fantastic way to keep your skin feeling hydrated without removing (then re-applying) your makeup throughout the day. Simply spritz it all over your face and neck, then pat dry with a tissue.
Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion, $12.95
If your skin is feeling dry and burnt after a day at the beach, make sure to use a fragrance-free moisturiser. It won’t cause your skin to breakout like others might and it will help to heal the burn before you know it!
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50, $29.95
Protect your skin from the suns harmful rays by re-applying SPF every few hours. If you’re extra worried about burning your face, make sure to use a BB cream with added SPF to prevent that awful white caste from showing up on your face.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Face Masque, $50
To avoid peeling and dry patches, treat your skin to a hydrating face mask at least 1-2 times per week. You can apply the masque for 20 minutes then wash-off, or leave it on overnight for a truly intensive moisturising treatment.
