We are so looking forward to a dazzling summer and our long weekend has proved to be an excellent start! To help support your skin this season, we've pulled together our favourite skincare swaps for our JB Beauties.
Switch creamy cleansers for a gentle gel
Sun and humidity can irritate the skin so the last thing you need this summer is a harsh cleanser that will heighten sensitivity or feel too heavy. When it comes to cleansers this season, think gentle gel formulas or balms that remove impurities without stripping the skin. Try: Refreshing Gel Cleanser.
Opt for an ultra-lightweight moisturiser
Just as we swap out heavy fabrics for lighter clothing in summer, our skin should benefit from the same approach. We recommend a lightweight moisturiser packed with natural oils and essential vitamins to keep your complexion dewy and comfortable. Try: Joyce Blok's Normal or Sensitive Skin Moisturiser.
Add vitamin C for the win
To combat premature ageing, or worse, skin cancer, sunscreen should be worn 365 days a year, making this entry less of a swap and more of a reminder. We also recommend all our clients add vitamin C to their routine, layered under your sunscreen for added support. An absolute must.
Try: Serum CEF. With 15% vitamin C, 1% vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid, this unique cocktail of antioxidants has been cited as providing eight times the skin's own photo-defence to significantly increase UV protection.
Swap foundation for BB Cream
Summer, what liberation! And what could feel more freeing for your skin than no foundation? Instead, opt for a lighter BB cream. Try: BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF30, a smooth, mousse-like texture that encompasses the best of science and nature to create six essential benefits in one and provide a natural, fresh finish.
Make these four swaps this summer and your skin (and future self) will thank you.
