As we welcome the summer months and regain control over our lives, people are paying more attention to their daily skincare routines. It’s a ritual that brings us peace and restores calm, which is perfect for our mental and physical wellbeing. Here are my 5 tips for a good daily skincare routine in the summer.

1. Sunblock

Did you know, UV rays reflect off concrete as well as water?

Exposure to UV rays can cause premature ageing of the skin and sun damage. Whether you prefer to use creams, sprays or mists, there are so many sunblock options out there that you can quickly adopt into your daily routine.

2. LUSTRE ClearSkin

LUSTRE ClearSkin is a device that uses Blue Light technology to kill acne, spots and blemishes. Sweat sitting on the skin, combined with friction and the heat of summer months, clogs pores and encourages acne. This product is gentle, natural and takes only 20 minutes a day. They also offer an anti-bacterial skin cleanser (I’m a big believer in good cleansing routines) which gently clears the skin, leaving it ready for treatment.

3. A clean fresh pillow case

What has this got to do with my skin, you ask? Pillows absorb all our skins oils, sweat and saliva every night. After your evening skincare routine, having a freshly washed pillow case ensures your skin isn’t lying against a week’s worth of dirt. And who doesn’t love a fresh, cold pillow case to sleep on?

4. Universkin

Bespoke skincare products? Yes please!

Universkin creates personalised skincare products. I use Universkin myself and am just obsessed. The products are mixed at medical clinics based on artificial intelligence analysis of your skin and lifestyle. All you have to do is complete a complimentary skin analysis questionnaire (it’s so detailed, believe me, but takes less than ten minutes) and your bespoke products are delivered to your door. Just contact me if you’d like to find out more or start your own journey.

4. Drink water

I always mention this, but keeping hydrated with at least 2-3 litres of water a day gives your skin a healthy glow.

Whatever you decide to adopt into your summer skincare routine, it’s important to remember to be reactive to how it feels each day and be consistent with your care.
