How to rejuvenate your skin for summer

Summer is a time when many people choose to wear less makeup and embrace their natural beauty.

But, before doing this you’ll need to check the condition of your skin. Is it looking its best or could it do with some tender, loving care? There are many ways you can revitalise your skin, leaving it smooth, supple and radiant in time for the summer months.

Here are some top tips for getting skin in peak condition.


The first step of every skincare regime is to remove dead skin cells and reinvigorate the surface of the skin.

This can be done through an exfoliating face mask or a professional facial from a beauty therapist, penetrating deep into the pores to remove dirt and other blockages. Always massage in a circular motion and be sure to do so gently so as not to aggravate the skin, especially if it is sensitive.

Exfoliating is a process which should be done all over the body once or twice a week and could be combined with dry body brushing, which also helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

It is important to exfoliate regularly during the summer, especially if you are wearing fake tan or covering up with suncream, as these can block the pores if the skin is not properly cleansed daily.


After exfoliating and cleansing you need to lock moisture into the skin.

When looking for the right products, bear in mind you will need one for the body and another lighter formula designed for your face. Consider your skin type and whether oil-free moisture, non-comedogenic or intensely hydrating moisturiser is best.

Apply once or twice a day to give skin a natural, healthy-looking glow.

As you look to cut down on your makeup during the summer months you could also think about switching from foundation to a tinted moisturiser, for even coverage with added hydrating benefits.


Hydration is essential for beautiful, radiant skin. Moisturiser is highly important, but as is drinking plenty of water. As the weather heats up or you become more active always make sure to carry a water bottle with you so you can top up as and when you need it. Drinking more water can help the face to look less fatigued, fighting the signs of ageing and reducing the appearance of under-eye bags or sallow patches.


By far the most important tip for fabulous skin is to protect it. Sunscreen with a high SPF level will defend against harmful UV rays and regardless of your skin tone everyone should choose one with an SPF 25 or higher. Avoid over-exposure to the sun and make sure to cover up with a sun hat and sunglasses, while investing in a good quality after-sun to apply each evening. This will offer added hydration and nourishment, while also helping to prolong your tan.

As well as the sun, chlorine and sea salt can strip the skin of essential oils, leaving it feeling dry and sensitive, meaning a waterproof sunscreen and a concentrated effort to stay hydrated can be especially helpful.
