Here are our top 10 tips for the Summer to keep your skin hydrated, happy and healthy - not burnt, sore and peeling!

  1. Sun Protection
    We know it's an obvious one, but SUNSCREEN! SUNSCREEN! SUNSCREEN! Protect your skin with our favourites from Ultraceuticals.
     
  2. Lip Care
    The sun's rays are particularly drying to our delicate lip tissue. Keep your lips hydrated and protected with our Dr Spiller Aloe Vera Lip Balm with SPF 15.
     
  3. Face Mist to Cool Off
    With the Summer heat upon us, our skin is more prone to becoming dehydrated. Keep your Dr Spiller toner in the fridge and use it with a spray pump to rehydrate and restore your acid mantle (protective barrier) and for a lovely refreshing spritz! 
     
  4. Sip some Red Wine
    White wine is refreshing in the summer, but red wine is healing. Resveratol, a naturally occurring phenol found in the skin of red grapes can decrease redness from acute sunburns as it has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. Cheers to that!
     
  5. Stock up on Summer fruits
    Berries and melons are in abundance at this time of year, and are a fantastic way to keep your skin healthy and glowing! Feast on berries for their antioxidant properties, and melons for their water contect to stay hydrated and keep your skin clear.
     
  6. Bright Eyes
    Whilst we protect our eyes at this time of year with sunglasses, the delicate skin around our eyes still needs a little extra loving to avoid a squinty, crepey look. We love our Dr Spiller Eye Contour Gel with ATP to treat dark circles (no one needs know you had a late night enjoying day light savings!). Keep this one in the fridge too, for instant refreshment.
     
  7. Fake your Tan
    Don't sacrifice your skin just for a tan! Come in to see us for a spray tan, or grab some of our Tuscan Tan products to become a bronzed babe.
     
  8. Body Scrubs
    Body scrubs are a must at this time of year, with all our skin on show. Keep your skin fresh and glowing by exfoliating 2-3 times per week. Be careful if you've just been burnt though! Protect your skin with soothing aloe vera until the redness has gone, and then start to control peeling skin with a gentle scrub. We love our Baxter coffee scrub - it's perfect for polishing the skin, and contains cocunut oil to nourish and hydrate the skin!
     
  9. Body Oil
    Body oils are a fantastic Summer option to keep your skin hydrated, and to combat the drying effects from the sun. We love La'Bang Body Oils full of natural, organic goodness!
     
  10. Mask it
    Our Sanvita Face Mask is perfect at this time of year. Packed full of antioxidants, this moisturising mask is an instant ‘pick me up’ with ingredients to soothe, smooth, visibly repair and even out sensitised complexions prone to irritation and redness.

Enjoy your Summer Sharkra family!
