NATALIE'S SUMMER SKINCARE PICKS
As the weather begins to heat up and the sun gets stronger, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your skincare routine for summer by swapping out rich moisturizers and strong acids for lightweight, nourishing serums and antioxidant-rich formulas.
In my newest YouTube video, I walk you through my weekly summer skincare routine and you might be surprised by how simple it is! While many of the products in my routine are suitable for all skin types, keep reading to learn more about my favourite products for every skin concern.
My go-to for…oily and acne-prone skin.
This cleanser saved my skin when it was very acneic. It regulates sebum without stripping the skin of hydration and lipids.
It acts as a magnet for surface oils and debris, removing only what it needs to and leaving skin perfectly balanced and mattified.
My go-to for… dehydrated skin
One of my year-round favourites!
This cleanser brightens, hydrates and removes makeup with absolute ease.
My go-to for… an acid-free solution for pores
During the summer, I’m not a huge fan of using exfoliating acids on a daily basis, so during the sunnier months,
I love this alternative. The Facial High contains microbiota technology and succinic acid to tighten and clear my pores,
regulate sebum and balance my skin— all at the same time!
My go-to for…light physical exfoliation and nourishment
One of my absolute favourites! Apply and rub it off!
This mask removes my flaky skin with its dual action of both physical and chemical exfoliants
but leaves my skin dreamily plump and juicy with a light veil of the quintessential Ayuna oil.
My go-to for…plump, juicy skin
A pure essential in my armour, especially in the summer, when it replaces my daily moisturizer.
This silky serum contains cellular nectar, which increases vitamin D levels in the skin. It is gorgeously plumping, hydrating, brightening
and pore-tightening— who doesn’t want that?
My go-to for…sensitive-friendly hydration
This light serum layers beautifully over or under anything. It contains some seriously collagen-boosting and hydrating ingredients,
and it leaves my skin supple and plump without using any irritating or photo-sensitising ingredients, which I LOVE.
My go-to for…a lightweight anti-ageing cream
When I feel like my face could do with a little somethin’, somethin’, I reach for this light and fast-absorbing crema.
The ingredients and packaging are highly technical, but using it is a dream.
Two words: SYN-AKE (like no-needly Botox) and Triple FLow Perfluorocarbon (super-charged healthy and bright skin). Okay, four words. Yass!
My go-to for… acne-prone skin
If you suffer from angry, active and inflamed acne, this cream is an absolute must.
Now, this is a treatment cream, so it’s formulated to only be used for a period of a few months,
and I would recommend you apply it only in the evening as it is seriously purging.
Wake up, rinse off, and repeat until your skin starts doing what you want it to do.
My go-to for…a silky, light texture
I’m not a huge user of eyecare products, but this stuff— especially if I haven’t slept well— juices up my under-eye area without a goopy feeling.
It provides silky hydration, brightening and anti-ageing benefits, and it’s comforting, pure and simple.
My go-to for…minimising inflammation and redness
A super multi-faceted tool. Perfect for when you want to minimise redness, shrink pores, and tighten your skin.
You can also use these icy cold sticks over top of masks to increase their efficacy. I love to use them in the summer when I feel a little puffier than usual.
Pluck them from the fridge and caress your skin with these refreshing, heavenly sticks.
My go-to for…après-soleil
A staunch summer product of mine for years! Spritz on this milky, lightweight serum after a day in the sun.
Not only will it hydrate and plump up your skin, but it will also leave you shining like a Greek goddess. This product can also help to prolong your tan— an absolute must for sun worshippers!
My go-to for…banishing cellulite
With the summer almost here, I’m thinking about showing a lot more skin— and how that makes me feel!
Apply a slightly thick layer of cream and massage it in with the ball side of the Body Glove. If it doesn’t hurt a little,
you’re not pressing hard enough…break down that cellulite! It’s a little painful, but no pain, no gain!
