Summer is the time of bare skin exposed to the warm rays of sunshine that can be amazing for our mood (as we produce more serotonin - a mood-boosting hormone) but also very harsh for our skin and hair. Summer skincare is an entirely different chapter in beauty than our normal everyday beauty routine during winter. Excessive sun exposure can cause anything from pigmentation to skin dehydration, sunburn and premature ageing, but not with a proper summer skincare routine.


Here's what you'll need:

TONER
You wouldn't necessarily associate dry skin with summer but that's a myth. Sweating, in particular, can cause our skin pores to open up and that's when the toner is really helpful. Use your favourite toner after you've cleaned your skin thoroughly to help close the pores. Don't forget to moisturise and follow these simple basic steps every day to avoid premature ageing and wrinkles. 

NO SCRUB(S) 
Although it's important to cleanse the skin during the summer months it's not advisable to scrub it, especially after long-term sun exposure. Scraping off the dead layer of skin may leave you with a brighter complexion but it can also make your skin more sensitive to the sun. If you still want to exfoliate, try limiting it to two times a week and make sure you moisturise after. Because of extra sweat-clogged pores can end up in pimples so keep up with your exfoliating and splash your face with water 3-4 times per day. 

DAY CREAM with SPF 
An oil-free and fragrance-free cream day cream with SPF 30 would be ideal for summer. Thick creams are only good for dry areas of the body like the feet, knees and elbows. For summer you need a lighter lotion and serum. You should apply a minimum SPF of 30 at least 20-30 minutes before sun exposure. If you have oily prone skin (you still have to wear an SPF!) try a gel-based sunscreen. If you have a mixed or dry skin try a sunscreen with a matte finish. 

CC CREAM
If you want just a bit of coverage you can sport a CC Cream in addition to your SPF. Most of the CC's include a SPF and are also colour-correcting, act as a lightweight makeup, and hydrate the skin. But their SPF is sometimes as little as 15 so ALWAYS wear it on top of your normal face sunscreen.

ULTRA HYDRATING MASK 
Chlorine from the swimming pool and sea water in combination with sun exposure can severely dehydrate and damage the skin. This season think about investing in a hydrating mask and we swear it will feel just like splashing your face into the water after taking that first summer dip.

LIGHTWEIGHT NIGHT CREAM 
Night cream is a tad excessive during the summer months, just like that sweater you packed and never worn on your holidays- you just don't need it. You don't necessarily need it in humid conditions. But due to sun exposure and dry environments (especially with air-conditioning) you should aim for a lightweight night cream or serum depending on your skin type. 

EYES & LIPS 
The sun rays are most harmful between 12 and 4 pm. It's important to wear a pair of UV-protected sunnies and an eye cream for extra sun protection. Chapped lips are common during the summer months as well so make sure you carry an extra lip balm with sun protection and coconut oil for extra moisturising in your bag. If the sun really hurts your eyes sit down in the shade and apply potato juice or peeled potatoes underneath your eyes for a super soothing effect.

After seasons of larger-than-life statement baubles, it’s now time to downsize. Think dainty little gold chains, layered necklaces, long, delicate earnings, cute rings and skinny cuffs. Though minuscule in size, these accessories make just as much of an impact. How you ask? We tell you how to bring your A-game on! 

 
Pile them up 
Delicate is the new sexy! For a bolder effect, you can always pile several chains up without ever needing a chunky statement necklace again. 
 
On crop top and T-shirts 
These chains don’t necessarily have to be showing on top of your T-shirt or dress, in fact it looks more charming when they’re peeking from underneath the garment. Give it a shot! 
 
Palm chains over bracelets 
Chunky bracelets are out; instead, try on dainty, minimal palm, wrist and ankle chains to look flawless on day-to-day basis. 

Wear ‘em everyday
Because of how lightweight this jewelry is, you’ll never want to own another chunky piece of necklace and want to walk out with these chains on you every single day. 

Excited? Look at our edit below for a wider range of these goodies.

I'm here to tell you about slip dresses, my favorite trend of the summer. These comfortable and lightweight dresses may seem to float on your body, but they're still heavy-hitters when it comes to being stylish. For a modern and casual look, pair a long slip dress with flat platform sandals. To wear the trend to work, choose one with a pattern, and just add pointed flats and a cardigan. For a night out, pick a silky slip dress, red lipstick and heels, and you're good to go!

Unless you're a Real Housewife wearing make-up to the gym is a contentious topic, with some women loving the idea of looking flawless while working out, and others loathing the feeling of sweat-caked make-up.


It would seem that beauty professionals agree with the latter, as they’ve warned that sweat mixed with make-up can clog pores and cause you to break out. 

However, that was before technology and innovation brought us these game-changing formulas that are actually designed to withstand the sweat and tears of the gym!

Shop gym-proof make-up below!
