Morning Skincare Hacks - 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 our gender neutral bodywash will keep your skin well cleansed and free from irritation.
Morning Skincare Hacks - Hydrating Skin
Slippery, thick body moisturisers aren't that appealing in the heat as they can feel like they melt straight off of skin. Not appealing! 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. Skin is hydrated with natural oils, dry patches are nourished and the start of your summer glow will be preserved!
Morning Skincare Hacks - 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. It's a really great summer skincare hack - who doesn't love a dewy, radiant glow?!

Midday Skincare Hacks - It's Hotting Up!
As the sun hits the highest point, we've got a couple of tips we feel the need to share. Firstly: SLIP, SLOP, SLAP. 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 on some sunscreen. 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. Try a sunscreen like Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Baby SPF 30 Plus. Because the Aussie's know how to be sun smart...

Evening Skincare Hacks - Good To Glow
Sun kissed summer skin is the big bonus of the continued onslaught we're experiencing from the big ball of burning gas in the sky. 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..!
