A scorching Australian summer is well and truly on the way and as much as it’s a good time to chill on the beach, our skin is definitely not ready for the blazing sun and dry winds. Our normal skincare routines have been good to us but it might be time to switch it up. We’re dying for more hydration, with creams, mists and lip products to give us that glowy, sun-kissed look.
With the combination of harsh sunshine, air-conditioning and excess oil build up after being outside all day, it’s time to try out some new summer approved products. We’ve pulled together a list of some of our favourite skincare picks in preparation for this sunny season.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
Every beauty gurus favourite. This super-fine, refreshing and moisture-rich mist can be used to refresh your complexion at any time of day. Use it before applying your regular makeup to replenish moisture and create a flawless, dewy makeup look, or use it throughout the day to add a dose of refreshing hydration.
Frank Body Anti-Angry Facial Mist
The most refreshing mist full of rose water for reducing redness, grapefruit seed extract for plump glowy skin and coffee extract to perk you up and firm and soften your irritated skin.
Grown Alchemist Age-Repair Eye Cream Tetra-Peptide & Centella
The perfect cream to keep away those under-eye bags after those long summer nights. Vitamins A, E and D from wheat germ and phyto-amino acid peptides brighten dark circles and visibly de-puff your eyes.
Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment
Whipped lanolin with organic lemon oil create a rich and luxurious formula to nourish, hydrate and exfoliate your lips when they’re dry and sandy.
Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
This moisturiser is an auto-replenishing formula featuring activated aloe water, which helps the skin create its own internal water source to continually rehydrate itself. It’s also packed full of hyaluronic acid to add a radiance to your complexion.
Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint
An advanced formula to banish liquid foundation and concealers from your makeup regime this summer. The added SFP and hyaluronic acid helps keen the skin hydrated and dewy throughout the day.
