Transitioning Your Skincare Routine from Winter to Summer
Now that Spring has sprung and Summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to overhaul your skincare routine. With the weather warming up and sun exposure becoming more of a concern, it’s just as important to switch up your skincare habits as it is your wardrobe. Summer is all about soft, hydrated and luminous skin. To achieve this look from head to toe, exfoliation and moisturisation is key. I recommend reaching for botanical products that balance the complexion and allow your skin to breathe.
1. Reach for a hint of tint
For natural looking skin, think less is more. Swapping out your regular moisturiser for a tinted lotion is a simple way to warm up the complexion without heavy layers of foundation. Our No.4+ Tinted Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion is based on the bestselling No.4 Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion but with a hint of tint. This lightweight formula works to balance oil production, plump the skin and deeply hydrate. Effortlessly blendable, our tinted lotion creates the perfect ‘no-makeup makeup’ look with a radiant, sun kissed glow. It’s also fantastic for the Summer months thanks to the natural sun protection factor of red raspberry seed oil.
2. Buff away your dry Winter skin
To remove dead cells and buff away dry Winter skin, you’re going to need an effective facial exfoliant. Our & Desert Lime Flawless Micro Exfoliant works to gently brighten and soften the skin with natural rice grains, wattle seed and rice strawberry fruit extracts. Thanks to the botanical extract Gingko Biloba, it also helps to boost circulation and promote a youthful glow. Enriched with Coconut oil, Camellia See Oil and Cocoa Butter, this smoothing polish reveals visible results after every application. Perfect for Summertime!
3. Freshen up throughout the day
Whether you’re out and about or sitting behind a desk, we all get a little fatigued throughout the day. When it’s hot outside, one of my favourite ways to refresh is with a few spritzes of our No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Toner Mist. Hydrating, refreshing and radiance boosting, this multipurpose mist can be used throughout the day to revitalise tired skin. With a fresh citrus infused scent, it’s the perfect way to combat Summer heat.
2. Don’t forget about the body!
When the weather heats up, we all tend to bare a little more skin. To ensure your limbs are looking hydrated and silky smooth, it’s all about hydration from head to toe. Our & Velvet Coffee Body Butter is crafted using a botanical blend of detoxifying ingredients including Coffee Extract, Grapefruit and Horsetail Extract. These key natural ingredients help to reduce cellulite and firm the skin while improving hydration. For velvety soft skin, apply both morning and night after showering.
