Summer is in full swing and while it is so important to enjoy so needed sunshine and stock up on natural Vitamin D, we shouln't forget about taking care of our skin. And I am not taking about spf, which these days is something obvious, but about products that will help your skin look radiant and fresh. As a mum, I don't have much time for long skin care routine, so I am always looking for products that deliver serious results. Below is my Top 10.
Too Faced Hangover Good To Skin Loving SPF 25 Moisturiser
Hydrate and protect your complexion with this super cool and reasonably priced moisturiser. This nourishing cream multi-tasks as a primer, creating a smooth, dewy base for even foundation application. The formula quickly absorbs into the skin to create a glowing, non-sticky finish without any white cast, making it suitable for all skin tones. SPF25 provides daily protection to help shield your skin against the ageing effects of UVA and UVB rays. Hello summer!
Soleil Toujours Organic Daily Sunless Tanning Serum
If you want to achieve safely a subtle, summer glow that radiates all year long, then Soleil Toujours Organic Daily Sunless Tanning Serum is a perfect choice for you. The serum delivery system quickly penetrates and absorbs unlike other formulas that merely sit on the surface of the skin and can be mixed with daily moisturisers, SPF and facial oils to achievea subtle, radiant glow, or can be used alone for a deeper glow. Personally, I have never been a fan of fake tan, but this product convinced me because the natural colour is built up after daily use, with no orange tint.
Filorga Global-Repair Multi-active Cream
This cream incorporates a unique long-term anti-ageing system. A powerful regenerating amino acid, which repairs glycated proteins in the dermis, is combined with essential minerals (manganese, zinc and iron) with powerful detoxifying and antioxidant properties to strengthen the skin and halt skin ageing. That's exactly what we need during the summer and beyond. Well done Filorga.
Oskia Renaissance Brightlight Serum
Boost skin’s natural radiance with Oskia Renaissance Brightlight, a daily serum that tackles dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage. This serum contains a unique blend of 13 bio-available actives and nutrients that play a vital role in ensuring an even skin tone. The product effectively minimises melanin transfer to the surface of the skin, while papaya and pumpkin enzymes along with other fruit acids derived from passion fruit and grape gently exfoliate to smooth and soften skin while bringing out a natural glow. We just can't get enough of it's exotic smell, that teleports us to the sunny beaches.
Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment
I am a huge fan of retinol, which leaves my skin looking super smooth and radiant. And this patented, modern retexturizing formula delivers the skin-renewing strength of Retinol to reveal a significantly smoother, more even-toned look. It contains a highly effective grade of Retinol blended into a stabilized delivery systemto time-release its power. Formulated to provide the optimum balance of potency and comfort. Also includes anti-oxidants, plumping Hyaluronic Acid and collagen amplifiers to help bring the look of skin into a less-lined state of perfection.
Zelens Z Recovery Intensive Repair Balm
We love this concentrated rescue balm developed by Dr. Marko Lens because it supports natural skin repair and recovery after daily environmental assaults, such as salty water and burning sun. Fortified with powerful collagen-boosting ingredients to help restore the hydrolipidic layer and strengthen the skin's natural protective barrier. This intense soothing formula reduces the perception of unpleasant sensations and enhances well-being of the skin. It is just perfect for all skin types including compromised, travel-stressed and climate-drained skin. That's me.
The Ordinary "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%
If you are a fan of The Ordinary range, just as we are, you will love the fact that they added 1% concentration of pure copper peptides to beloved “Buffet” formula that combines a comprehensive array of technologies to target multiple signs of ageing at once. Skin-supporting copper tripeptides are the versatile antidote to stressed-out, neglected complexions, as they help out wherever your skin is struggling, improving textural damage, battling blemishes, evening out tone and restoring youthful radiance. Alongside this, a complex of age-defying peptides, a probiotic complex, 11 skin-friendly amino acids and multiple forms of hyaluronic acid boost and nourish your skin to leave it looking as healthy and youthful as possible.
Skinceuticals C E Ferulic
This is one of my favourite products with Vitamin C, an antioxidant that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness. C E Ferulic features a synergistic antioxidant combination of 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), 1% vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), and 0.5% ferulic acid to enhance protection against environmental damage. This topical antioxidant serum neutralises free radicals, while C E Ferulic improves signs of photo-damage, the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and the loss of firmness. My no 1 solution for the summer.
Vitamin Injections Vitamin C Super Serum
Another top skin care product packed with powerful vitamin C. It is no.1 antioxidant and skin booster. Vitamin C helps to reduce signs of ageing by repairing the damage caused by free radicals. This high-strength Vitamin C serum brightens the skin whilst evening out skin tone and promoting collagen production. The addition of Hyaluronic Acid helps to keep the skin plump, hydrated and free from clogged pores. Anti-inflammatory ingredients are also incorporated into the Vitamin C Super Serum to ensure its suitability for all skin types, especially oil-prone skin and those that suffer from rosacea or frequent breakouts.
Bea AHA Wands
This is just perfect at-home alternative to a skin peel. These professional wands are soaked in 7% Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Citric Acid to brighten the complexion and target a range of skin conditions including acne, pigmentation, enlarged pores and fine lines and wrinkles. Designed for single use, up to twice a week, the wands also facilitate the penetration of super strength active ingredients beneath the skin’s surface, which in turn help to enhance the effect of your regular skin care products.
