Summer is upon us. Finally. Yay! While planning your summer wardrobe of swimsuits, shorts, crop tops and sandals, don't forget that anything looks good on glowing skin. Here are seven tips to help you prep your skin for summer.
All that sticky humidity can leave your face looking a bit, well, greasy with clogged pores and matted up makeup. Help sweep away dirt, oils, and impurities from the surface of your skin morning and night with a traditional lather and rinse cleanser. We recommend Esteem Royale Clarifying Foaming Cleanser.
With humidity and heat comes clogged, enlarged pores. So after cleansing, ensure to tone and decongest to shrink pores and prevent build-up of dirt on the skin. Esteem Royale two-in-one serum toner combines the efficacy of a natural rose water toner with a soothing aloe-vera and hyaluronic acid serum.
In the colder winter and spring months, you may find yourself finding you need to use a richer cream to help keep your skin hydrated. But when it’s warmer outside, you may find that a lightweight face lotion is all you need. Consider using a water-based moisturizer like Esteem Royale Clarifying Face Cream. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to help provide long-lasting hydration. Smooth it gently over your face after cleansing.
It’s important to take sun protection measures year-round, but if this hasn’t been on your radar, now’s a good time to start since you may be spending more time outdoors these days. For African weather you require SPF 30+ and if lightening you need SPF 50+ to be applied every two hours if you are staying in the sun.
Go ahead and show off your gorgeous bod! Fake a summer tan by using a self-tanner or bronzer to highlight. Just remember to shave and use an oil-free moisturizer beforehand to help ensure the highlighter glides on easily.
What's summer without a festival, getaways, wide brim hats, boat rides, cold cocktails and beaches?
