The summer skincare we can’t live without…

article

With the glorious heat comes a number of less desirable skin situations – sweat (hello breakouts!) and dehydrated, sun exposed skin. Throw in humidity, which can make it super difficult for your normal moisturiser to sink in, and you’ve got a very good case for picking your summer skincare products carefully. We round up the most hard-working, summer lovin’ skin saviours….

Protect the skin you’re in

Sunscreen is the most important summer essential but opt for something lightweight and radiant so you feel like you’re wearing nothing at all. The tinted, mattifying formula of ModelCo DAILY FACE Mattifying Sunscreen and lip balm SPF50+ protects against UVA and UVB rays (but you wouldn’t know it, it looks so good) and ModelCo BODY BRONZE Dry Touch SPF50+ is an instant, wash-off bronzer with added SPF50+ protection so you look bronzed and glowing, not chalky.

Add in an oil (yes we did say OIL)

Fast absorbing and non-greasy, oils are the perfect base to moisturise your skin with. Used both morning and night, encouraging a healthy oil environment throughout summer will help to protect summer skin and result in a glowing, hydrated complexion without the spots. Both ModelCo ROSEHIP Luxury Facial oil and MACADAMIA Luxury Facial Oil are packed with antioxidants that work to brighten dull skin as well as soothing skin post-sun recovery. Maintaining use of oils throughout the warmer months will keep your skin looking radiant, fresh and moisturised, and anything but greasy – we promise!

Boost your skin

Concentrated boosters should be as much a part of your skin care regimen as your cleanser and moisturiser are. They work well on their own but also enhance the effects of other skincare products as well! ModelCo INSTANT MIRACLE BOOSTER Skin Brightening & Firming Serum is the perfect choice, it is lightweight, non-greasy and doesn’t leave a sticky residue.

Exfoliate your face

A glowing complexion starts well before you reach for the illuminator. Without makeup, your complexion will look radiant when it is smooth and even enough to reflect the light naturally. As skin cells build up, they will start to diffuse light and in turn, dull the surface of the skin. Regular exfoliation with ModelCo EXFOLIATING CREAM Facial Scrub will gently whisk these dead skin cells away to reveal the fresh, smooth skin below. We recommend using 2-3 times a week.
