Summer is just around the corner which means we’ve got to up our game on our summer skincare routine. As we dig out our shorts, head outdoors and enjoy the sun, here are our five simple steps to getting that perfect summer glow.
Scrub your way to smooth skin
For silky smooth skin, exfoliating is our go-to skincare step. It eliminates dead skin cells that we definitely don’t want and uncovers smoother, softer skin that we most definitely do! During the summer months, exfoliating is key as our skin is prone to drying out. At Aqua Sana the Elemis Intensely Cleansing Salt Scrub is a great way to ditch dead skin cells and perfectly prep the skin in time for summer.
Just like we get thirsty, so does our skin! Sun exposure can dry out our skin so moisturising daily during summer is a must. Moisturising after exfoliating can help lock in moisture and promote naturally softer skin. Go all out with the Elemis Nectar Nourishing Wrap at Aqua Sana – it offers super hydration for thirsty skin.
Protect your skin with SPF
Although a tan is something we all desire, the harmful effects the sun can have on our skin is one we all need to protect against. That’s why it’s super important to stay sun-savvy this summer and protect against those harmful UV rays with a suncream high in SPF.
Drink plenty of water
It’s important to stay hydrated all year round, but in the summer months the heat can leave our body feeling dehydrated. It’s important to drink around eight glasses of water a day. If you’re bored of water, why not opt for a summery twist? For healthy alternatives, you could add a slice of lemon for flavour or swap water for coconut water.
Chill out in the shade
Ditch spending hours in the sun this summer and chill out in the shade by getting your summer glow a safer way, straight from the bottle.
