The most important factors to consider for glowing summer skin are sun protection and hydration. Between the sweltering temperatures and the sun’s persistent rays, keeping your skin healthy and nourished requires nutrient-packed products that can cater to your skin’s needs. So, before you pack for your next vacation, consider our edit of the nine best beauty products that build the foundation for healthy and radiant summer skin.
LIXIRSKIN’s Vitamin C Paste is a transformative neutralising and reviving face wash infused with a 10% concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid (skincare’s wonder molecule Vitamin C in acid form), which aids in the deep absorption of water to reach the skin cells for a hydrated and plumped effect.
LUNA 3 is the ultimate beauty upgrade in the award-winning LUNATM line of Swedish beauty brand FOREO. This gentle cleansing device eliminates trapped dirt, oil, and dead skin cells and boosts the absorption of your skincare, preserving the skin’s elasticity for a younger-looking complexion.
This rescue-remedy offers age prevention and correction in an antioxidant-rich masque with potent vitamin C + E to brighten, soothe and boost collagen in the skin. The masque heals, repairs, reduces irritation and evens the skin tone and dark spots. This potent formulation visibly improves fine lines and wrinkles, and its natural astringents minimise pores and balance oil production.
Medik8’s Hydr8 B5 Serum improves the skin’s moisture levels. Containing skin-softening vitamin B5 and moisture-enhancing hyaluronic acid, it provides both an instant burst of moisture and long-lasting hydration. This lightweight, oil-free formula is suitable for all skin types, even oily/spot-prone skin.
Hydrate your skin with the Kale Superfood Nourishing Day Moisturizer. The fast-absorbing formula contains vitamins, natural actives and deeply-replenishing kale extract. Boosted by vitamins C and E, the day cream helps to lessen the look of dry skin while shielding it against harsh environmental aggressors.
This luxuriously lightweight vitamin C oil provides a trifecta of visible results: brightening, firming, and hydration. This oil-soluble, shelf-stable vitamin C is an effective brightener and elasticity booster. Chios crystal oil firms and revitalises your skin, restoring its youthful glow, while squalane locks in moisture. Plus, an infusion of Damascus rose petal extract calms and soothes the skin, leaving behind a soft, natural scent.
Alcohol-free, gentle and non-irritating, this glow-enhancing formula exfoliates dead skin cells that cause dull, uneven skin texture and tone. Features a blend of AHAs and vitamin C to gently yet effectively exfoliate, brighten and improve tone and texture without stripping skin of natural moisture.
The constant battle of protecting our skin from the sun while creating an MUA-standard face of make-up has just been solved thanks to Supergoop!’s Glowscreen. Leaving a fresh, dewy base for your make-up, this multitasking sunscreen is infused with SPF 30 protection while boosting your skin’s hydration with a blend of hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5. Apply at the beginning of your routine, and you’re good to glow.
Gentle is the key word when it comes to this product. As you might have experienced before, so many targeted acne products can be incredibly drying and irritating, but this toner leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed without the sting. A blend of salicylic acid, lactic, and succinic acids gently slough away dead skin cells and clarify, while citrulline provides the calming, soothing effect that keeps irritation at bay.
