summer skincare routine

Going away and need some help creating the best summer skincare routine for you? Or maybe the erratic British weather has made your current regime useless? Check out our top beauty tips to change up and revamp your summer skincare routine.

Ditch the Heavy Creams

When the weather is colder, we often prefer a creamy hydrating moisturiser as our skin tends to feel drier and tighter. This is because the harsh climate conditions (i.e. icy winds) combined with indoor heating can strip the skin of its hydrating properties. However, with the temperature creeping up, a moisturiser with a thicker consistency may be too suffocating for your skin. So, we'd suggest switching to a more lightweight face cream or serum to help your skin breathe and avoid clogged pores and greasy skin.

Don’t Let Your Eyes Deceive You

There’s a common myth that the sun helps to clear up acne. But we're here to give you a reality check. The truth is that the sun can only temporarily make acne skin appear reduced. It cannot 'cure' it. But what's worse, is that in diminishing its visibility, it's disrupting your immune system. By weakening the immune system, the blood cells that create the inflammation and redness of your acne are decreased. So your acne isn't cured but rather a symptom has simply been disguised. So, spots are likely to flare up once you return to your day-to-day life. If you suffer from body acne and feel insecure about wearing summer clothes because of it, use our glo-therapeutics Clear Skin Body Spray. Spray this back acne treatment on your chest and back both morning and night, allowing the product to dry before putting on your clothes. This treatment fights acne-causing bacteria to reveal clearer skin. Click here for more acne-fighting beauty tips.

Don't Forget Your Sunscreen

This is probably an obvious one, but we still cannot stress enough how important it is to protect your skin from sun damage. Sunscreen should be worn throughout the year, no matter rain or shine, but during the summer it is even more important as sun exposure is more common. A product with SPF 30 or higher is recommended for absolute sun protection. What’s more, if you do burn by mistake, use a product with cooling, anti-inflammatory properties, like Jojoba Oil to calm and soothe skin inflammation and redness, and help speed-up the healing process.
