Summer may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean your tanned radiance has to. Never-ending top-to-toe glow is on many of our wish lists, so we’ve compiled a list of expert tips and tricks to make sure you can maintain that sunshine state of mind all year round.
Prep is key
There’s nothing worse than razor burn when you’re trying to show off your gorgeous legs. It’s just painful. Make sure you’re always moisturising post-shave using ultra hydrating ingredients. Our Body Oil is a blend of plant-based oils, including Organic Jojoba Oil and Organic Sweet Almond Oil to repair your skin and leave it feeling soothed and beautifully soft.
Choose skincare that works hard
There really is nothing that can stop a person with a fresh tan and natural glow. But what happens when the sun starts to disappear and the tan begins to fade? That’s when you need skincare that packs a punch.
Let's start with hydration; the key to getting glowing skin. For a dynamic duo that’s going to leave you red-carpet ready, spritz some Reviver hydrating Mist after cleansing, followed by a few drops of our award-winning Hero Facial Oil. How does it work? The mist refreshes the skin whilst boosting your microbiome and protective barrier functions. Combine this with the plumping and smoothing effects of the facial oil and you’ll be glowing in seconds.
We all know about the importance of eating our 5-a-day, but did you know there’s more to diet than meets the eye? Superfoods can be as simple or as complicated as you like, from hormone-balancing maca powder to acne-beating oats. Our top tip? Make sure you’re eating a variety of fruits and veggies, as well as plenty of protein and healthy fats. A great source of these would be walnuts as they’re packed with plant-based Omega 3s to help contribute to plumper and a more even complexion. Plus, they taste great mixed with berries and yoghurt. Read more about skin-loving foods in our interview with specialist dietitian Kaitlin Colucci.
We couldn’t write about beauty-boosting foods without talking about the OG: water. It works harder than anything else to support not only our skin, but our entire body. The only time we try to avoid it? In skincare products, but that’s for another blog post.
Ever wished for a miracle pot that combats all of your on-the-go skincare SOS’? We’ve got that covered too. Our Lip and Hand Balm is the ultimate all-in-one that we never leave the house without. We’re talking taming brows, soothing insect bites, plumping lips and even softening heels after a long day of strutting your stuff.
Who said self-care needed to be complicated?
Our final tip is to make sure you’re applying sunscreen all year round. Come rain or shine, skin-damaging UV rays will always be there to dampen your glow. Combat them with a natural SPF on top of your skincare, and you’ll be unstoppable.
