Summer Skincare Hacks for Radiant and Protected Skin!

Summer is nearly here, and while we all love to soak up the sun, the hot weather can take a toll on our skin. With the rise in temperature, humidity, and pollution, it's essential to take extra care of our skin to keep it healthy and glowing.

With summer on it's way, we've put together some of our favourite summer skincare hacks to help your face & body survive the sun and ensure you take extra care this summer.

Morning Skincare, in the shower 
First things first: jump in the shower! Run it cool; too much heat will dry skin out, and in warm weather we need to keep skin hydrated. Use a body wash that is free from nasties to ensure that skin isn't irritated or dried out. Try the fresh Fig & Vanilla Body Wash and it will keep your skin well cleansed and free from irritation.

Morning Skincare, hydrating skin
Slippery, thick body moisturisers aren't that appealing in the heat as they can feel like they melt straight off of skin. Try a dry body oil instead - such as the Illuminate Dry Body Oil. It holds all of the goodness of body moisturiser, but without a thick emollient. This means it will sink into skin instantly, preserving the start of your summer glow!

Morning Skincare, make up Free
We're quite bold when it comes to makeup in the summer months: skin will be glowing a little more thanks to the added vitamin D in the air, so we encourage a #FaceNaked approach and opting not to slap on makeup. If you are still in need of a little something to give you skin confidence, try this: Add a few drops of Organic Rosehip Oil to your B.B Cream or foundation. The concoction will glide effortlessly on to skin, and you'll also have a radiant, dewy glow.

Midday Skincare, SPF!
As the sun hits the highest point, we've got a couple of tips we feel the need to share. Firstly: Sun cream! As lovely as it is to steal a few rays on your lunch hour, don't neglect your skin. It needs protecting - so, if you're heading out into the garden or a wander in the park, slather it on. Look for one without parabens and nasties (of course) - a great option is kid's sunscreen as it tends to be free from fragrance and other irritation triggering ingredients.

Afternoon Skincare, cool down your skin 
Top hack: keep a bottle of soothing facial tonic in the fridge. At Natural Spa Factory HQ we have a bottle of Boosting Facial Tonic on ice at all times. It has hydrating rose water, soothing aloe vera and also green tea which is great for minimizing redness. A spritz of this will cool and calm skin in the middle of the afternoon heat.

Evening Skincare, hydrate and soothe 
We love a facemask anytime of the year but our hack for summer modification, get it on ice! Pop a mask - try the Resurrection Collagen Serum Infused Sheet Mask - in the fridge for 20 minutes, and enjoy the cooling, hydrating and lifting effect that you'll feel instantly. It has been said that this particular mask is 'like natural Botox' - but we'll let you be the judge of that..!

Evening Skincare, nourish the glow 
Sun kissed summer skin is the big bonus of the continued onslaught we experience. We all feel a little healthier after a day of sun on our skin - and the way to harness an evening glow is with a gentle sun kissed shimmer. Try the 23 Carat Gold & Caviar Dry Body Oil. A nourishing dry oil that won't be slippery on skin, it will highlight a summer glow beautifully. Slather on to skin after an evening shower and you're good to glow..!
