Year after year, we look forward to the summer months the most. Cue weekends spent relaxing under the sun (we’re hoping you’re doing so with lots of sunscreen!), chilling in air-con or just being out and about enjoying the warm weather. However, what we *don’t* love about summer is the state it leaves our skin in come autumn. All that socialising, not to mention sun exposure, can leave it looking worse for wear. So, here’s how to rescue dull, uneven and dry summer skin in as little as three steps.
For this tutorial, you’ll need three products: a replenishing mask like Ultraceuticals Ultra Energising Mask; a serum that helps renew skin, such as YSL Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum; and a face mist to refresh your complexion throughout the day, like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist.
Nourish your skin
Skin looking lifeless and dull from all the partying you did over summer? Apply a thick layer of Ultraceuticals Ultra Energising Mask all over your skin, wait 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
Smooth your skin
Once you’re done with masking, apply YSL Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum over your complexion. This serum features glycolic acid and moonlight cactus flower to smooth uneven texture and is gentle enough to be used every night.
Hydrate your skin
Up hydration levels through the day with a spritz of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist, which features a superfood blend to boost skin with antioxidants. We highly recommend keeping this in your handbag to refresh on-the-go.
And there you have it - skin that’s glowy, smooth and hydrated.
Hydration is always a vital skin care step no matter what time of year it is. Try these new hydrating products that promise to plump up your skin.
