Don’t expect to be able to use the same rich creams you were using in winter when it comes to June, July and August. The summer months require a variety of beauty swaps to adapt your skin to the warmer weather, and keep it healthy and radiant all summer long.
Moisturiser for SPF
This is perhaps the most important summer beauty swap you can make if you want to protect your skin against cell ageing.
SPF is an absolute essential all year round, but especially during the warmer weather. Instead of applying both a moisturiser and then a suncream on top, opt for an all-in-one, which will also help to reduce the risk of your pores clogging and your skin breaking out. Try the Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser, which has an SPF 50 to shield your skin against UV damage. It can replace your daily moisturiser, and even though it has incredible SPF protection, won’t leave the traditional white cast from suncream on your skin.
Or, if you suffer from sensitised skin and are worried about changing your moisturiser, try SPF booster drops. Dermalogica’s Solar Defense Booster has an SPF 50 and can be added to your regular cream without blocking your pores.
Make sure you keep your SPF topped up with a lightweight mist throughout the day too. La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios Face Mist has an SPF 50, but is also non-comedogenic to prevent blemishes, and has an ultra-dry finish so you don’t feel it being applied. Plus, it can be used over makeup, genius.
