Prepping Your Skin for Summer

Summer Skincare EssentialsWe have been so lucky with the weather recently (bar the huge thunderstorms!), so it is starting to finally feel like summer has finally arrived! With the beautiful sunny weather in mind, there are a few products that you should consider using to get your skin summer ready and glowing…

Green People Scent-Free Facial Sun Cream*

Summer Skincare Essentials

I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to wear suncream every single day, even if you aren’t in direct sunlight. Your skin will be thanking you when you are older. The Green People Scent-Free Facial Sun Cream is an absolute must-have in this beautiful weather. Plus being SPF 30 is the minimum I like to wear on my face.

I always seem to break out on holiday when I put normal suncream on my face, so going for a scent-free, non-irritating suncream like this one is absolutely perfect for me. What’s more, the texture is not greasy in the slightest. I don’t get left looking like a complete grease-ball, which is never a good look! The suncream soaks into the skin really, really quickly even though it is fairly thick.┬áThere are no nasty ingredients, so you know that this isn’t going to upset your skin. I think I quite prefer it to be scent-free as it means that I’m so much less likely to break out making it perfect for sensitive skin.

It also comes in really good packaging for travelling and keeping in your bag. The 50ml bottle has a pump top to squeeze out the perfect pea-sized amount for each application.

Green People Hydrating After Sun*

After spending a day out in the beautiful weather, the first thing I love putting on is aftersun. Not only is this Green People After Sun super refreshing, but also really cooling – which is perfect on my skin which burns very easily. As soon as I start to tan I start to peel, so aftersun is an absolute must for me. I have caught the sun a little bit, and haven’t started peeling whatsoever with the help of this aftersun! So I am really hoping that it helps maintain my tan…

It has a kind of minty scent to it, which I’m assuming helps to provide the cooling effect. The cooling effect is absolutely incredible as it completely cools down your whole body. I have never come across an aftersun that has this kind of effect. It is amazing! Much like the suncream, it has a non-greasy texture so you don’t have to worry about feeling all slippery after applying it.

Hylamide Glow Radiance Booster

Summer Skincare Essentials

So this definitely has to be one of my summer essentials for getting your glow on. The Hylamide Glow Radiance Booster gives you such a natural looking glow – it is DHA free, meaning that you won’t go orange! It adjusts to your skin to give you a tan that would be your natural shade using a mix of melanin hexapeptides and raspberry keto-sugar. So to keep my skin looking glowy, I put this on every 2-3 days (depending on when my tan needs a bit of a top-up).

Anatomicals Coconut + Mango Body Lotion*

Summer Skincare Essentials

This is the body lotion that I love putting on every morning. The sun seems to dry my skin out a fair bit, so putting on a body lotion every morning is a must. Plus coconut is one of my favourite scents, so I really love putting this on. The texture is quite thin, but that just makes it a really refreshing pick me up in the morning. I’m starting to get a little low on this now though, so I am definitely going to have to pick up another bottle because I really love the scent.

And how can you not love Anatomical’s products with their really quirky names?!
