Your Guide to Glowy Skin This Summer – Morning Edition

Now the weather is getting warmer and the lockdown restrictions are getting gradually lifted, it is time to get your skin up to scratch ready for the outside world.

Now the weather is getting warmer and the lockdown restrictions are getting gradually lifted, it is time to get your skin up to scratch ready for the outside world. After days of over-indulging and laying horizontally, we are finally able to get out a bit more so why not treat yourself and feed your skin with the nutrients it needs to shine this season. Even if we’re socially distancing, you can glow from afar 😉. Below are some key products bound to make you feel flawless this summer:

#1 Tropic Clear Skin Blemish-fighting mask

RRP: £20

This holy grail retails at £20 and will change your life. Whether you suffer from skin complications or not, this mask leaves you with silky smooth skin and an illuminating fresh look. It helps to reduce redness and manages breakouts quickly and effectively made naturally with spirulina, willow bark and ginger extracts. You may have heard of Tropic through ambassadors selling the products and although there is a stigma against this kind of distribution, this is a 50ml pot of pure gold!

#2 Pixi Vitamin-C Juice Cleanser

RRP: £18

This powerful yet super moisturising cleanser promotes collagen production which boosts your skin’s natural luminosity and is guaranteed to make you glow all day! Vitamin-C and Ferulic Acid are proven to remove pesky impurities from your skin whilst also protecting your complexion and the natural oils in this product help to keep the skin hydrated so this is a must-have for your morning skincare routine. Pixi is now offering free shipping on orders over £35 and is giving away free deluxe samples with every order!

#3 Q+A Niacinamide Daily Toner

RRP: £8.00

Q+A’s sell-out toner is super affordable, cruelty-free, vegan friendly and their packaging is 100% recyclable so what more could you want from a brand. The Niacinamide toner helps to calm redness and inflammation and also minimises the appearance of pores which can be a problem area for many people. Whether you suffer from acne or just the slight flare up when it’s that time of the month, this toner works wonders leaving your skin sparkling and hydrated. Q+A is a fairly new brand who are known for their skincare checklists making it super easy for you to choose which products suit YOU and your skin the best so it’s worth investing in them!

#4 CeraVe Moisturising Lotion

RRP: £9.50

The CeraVe moisturiser is a must-have. It’s super universal so it can be used on your body as well as your face and it’s lightweight, non-greasy and fragrance-free which makes this favourable over other moisturisers on the market. It contains 3 essential ceramides which help to protect the skin’s natural barrier and has patented MVE Technology to keep the skin nourished for up to 24 hours so it’s perfect for glowy skin and a flawless foundation application. If you have dry skin and need a new moisturiser to try, this is the one for you!

#5 Naissance Rose Floral Water

RRP: £3.49

To finish off your dewy morning routine, there is nothing better than a refreshing facial spritz to enhance your glow! Naissance is an organic, cruelty-free and natural brand meaning you won’t be layering chemicals onto your face with any of their products. The rose floral water can be applied in a small spray bottle or on a cotton pad to freshen up your face with a gentle rose scent. This is a great dupe for Mario Badescu’s facial sprays and is a lot better for your skin so this is an incredible finisher for your routine.
