Facial mists are AWESOME- and one of the easiest ways to deliver your skin a hit of solid hydration at any time of the day. Forget about only needing to moisturise in the morning and evening- with a hydrating facial spray you can get great looking skin whenever you like! Yes- even while wearing makeup ;) In fact, many facial mists will refresh your makeup base, giving you a healthy dewy finish- as WELL as making your skin happy. It’s a win/win. Look for facial mists with hydrating ingredients such as green tea, chamomile, aloe & goji- there are so many available these days to choose from. Mist away!
I know it can be tempting to go all-matte with your makeup when it’s hot to try and make it last/control any wayward oil, but to be honest it’s not what your skin needs right now- and it’s relatively rare to find hydrating matte makeup products. Look for makeup primers which deliver hydration, for foundations that give coverage while treating your skin at the same time, for creamy cheek products, and lip products that promise to moisturise your lips as well as making you look sexy as hell. If you’re concerned about whether or not these products will last all day- a makeup setting spray will truly be your best friend! One last thing- don’t forget your sunscreen- look for the highest SPF possible!
I really, really wish I was the kind of person that could drink litres of water a day- but I just CANNOT. Water is super important to drink, don’t get me wrong, but you don’t need me to tell you that. Instead, I’m going to tell you about my latest fave- OVI Hydration. These little babies are not only frickin delish; with flavours including Watermelon, Peach, Berry and Citrus, but they're made with no artificial colours, sweeteners, preservatives and flavours. I love OVI Hydration because it quenches my thirst (which in summer seems never-ending), and because it contains water, fruit juice, honey and natural minerals….along with antioxidants from green tea! Thirsty yet? You must try these!
I am an absolute freak when it comes to face masks- I can’t stop buying and trying new ones. I really do think that when used regularly (at LEAST once a week), face masks can make a huge difference to the appearance and overall health of your skin. I love ones that you can use as an overnight treatment- because who on earth doesn’t want to wake up with perfectly moisturised skin? You can spend as little or as much as you like on masks- the main thing to always do is check the ingredients to make sure they contain what you need. Good ingredients can include manuka honey, rosehip oil, Vitamin E, shea butter, or hyaluronic acid. I also love the fact that companies these days are selling cheaper, smaller versions of expensive masks so you can try them out before splurging. HIGH FIVE!
Okay- so we’ve covered what you can do to keep your beautiful little faces hydrated and glowing- but what about your bod’? I want to tell you something I’ve only discovered recently, and OH I wish I’d found it sooner- it’s the wonder of dry body brushing. Yes, it sounds a bit weird, but if you do it on your dry skin for just a few minutes before hopping in the shower, it can give you about a million (okay, maybe seven) amazing benefits. Your skin will be left glowing and firmer feeling thanks to the exfoliation process, it can increase circulation, give stress relief...and even reduce cellulite. ACTUALLY. You can pick up a brush for less than $20, & you will become hooked, trust me. Don’t forget to avoid your face (unless it’s designed for that purpose), and to apply a beautiful body moisturiser afterwards to lock in all that goodness.
I think that covers it! I hope that I’ve given you some helpful (and simple ways) to keep you looking gorgeous, glowing and hydrated during the warm days which I just KNOW are coming! I’d love to hear what you do to keep your skin looking its best- or what things from the list above that you think you’d like to try.
