Summer Skincare Routine
Protect with SPF
Sunshine may feel great on our skin, but it’s important to defend against damage from UV rays by adding a moisturiser with SPF protection into your summer skincare routine. Shield your skin with an SPF moisturiser such as Environmental Defence Cream Mineral SPF 25, enriched with light-reflecting pigment for healthy-looking, luminous skin. It’s lightweight, easily absorbed, and designed to enhance your skin’s natural defence barrier.
Cleanse, tone, moisturise
A good daily routine is important all year round, but it’s especially important to cleanse thoroughly during summer. Outdoor activities, warmer weather and sunshine mean skin has to contend with sweat, SPF, and pollution – so cleansing effectively is crucial to avoid blocked pores. Set the foundation for beautiful skin with our 3-step cleanse, tone, and moisturise regime. These simple daily steps will remove oil, product, and impurities, leaving skin feeling fresh and looking beautiful.
Exfoliation is absolutely essential for getting that summer ‘glow’. Exfoliation removes dry, dead cells that can block pores, making our skin look dull and more prone to blemishes. Exfoliation also reveals a smoother skin surface that can help the rest of our skincare to be even more effective. Smooth & Glow™ Exfoliating Tonic is gentle enough to be used both morning and night, leaving skin feeling resurfaced, without irritation. Our Gentle Face Exfoliator can also be used to soften, clarify and buff away impurities, revealing renewed radiance. Use a muslin cloth to buff off skin exfoliator products for a gentle, yet super-effective clean.
Stay hydrated inside & out
Water is vital to keep our skin healthy and hydrated, and in hot weather it’s even more important to make sure you’re drinking enough. Add slices of cucumber and lemon to iced water for a refreshing hit of flavour, and keep a water bottle at your desk to remind you to sip all day long. Once you’re hydrated from within,it’s time to turn your attention to your summer skincare products. Our Skin Repair™ collection locks in moisture and restores balance to dry, stressed skin. It’s powerful botanical blend of moisturising borage oil, smoothing avocado oil, soothing echinacea and toning hops, makes it the perfect addition to your summer skincare routine.
Lightweight body care routine
With summer dresses, strappy tops and bikinis to enjoy, it’s worth giving your body some TLC from top to toe – and we believe botanicals do it best! Cleanse and refresh with Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash. This aromatic body cleanser is enriched with a blend of citrus and pure essential oils. Nourish with our Cleanse & Polish™ Body Gentle Mitt Cleanser, a luxurious formula that refines, renews and revitalises with 48-hour hydration all over. Next, it’s time to moisturise. Finish with Skin Replenishing Body Balm, a fast-absorbing formula packed with naturally active ingredients to leave skin feeling soft and smoothed.
Soothe your skin
Temperature changes, air conditioning and sun exposure can all leave skin feeling extra sensitive during summer – so overnight treatments can be an especially welcome product in your summer skincare routine. Soothe, smooth and hydrate with CICA Restore Skin Paste, powered by botanicals for calmer, more comfortable skin. It’s ideal for rejuvenating dry and sensitive skin that’s prone to redness and boosting the skin’s natural moisture barrier. For scientifically proven intensive hydration, use Skin Repair™ Hydrating Night Cream before bed. This deeply nourishing formula is enriched with plant-based hyaluronic acid and renewal-boosting 4 o’clock flower.
