Skin care is exceptionally important throughout the year but in the lead up to summer, sticking to a strict regime is imperative. The 2013 summer hair and make-up trend is natural skin which means ditching the make-up bag in favour of a moisturiser and a bit of mascara. In order to be able to head out to the beach without a mask of make-up over your face it’s essential for your skin to look its best.
Throughout the winter months almost everyone lets their skin care routine slip as they’d much rather wrap up in huge winter woollies than spend time after a shower moisturising in the cold. However, if you want to look great on the beach this summer then it’s time to get yourself in gear and start giving your skin the attention it needs.
There are loads of great skin care brands out there like Dermalogica, Simple and Olay that produce a variety of products that are for many different skin types. Remember that if your skin doesn’t look great then your make-up won’t either so it’s essential to adopt a full regimen that includes a cleanser, toner, moisturiser and an exfoliant.

Many people avoid keeping up with their skin care regularly because they think that good quality skin care is expensive. This is not the case and some of the best skin care brands such as Dermalogica aren’t expensive at all. With Dermalogica you can save even more money by buying one of their specialist skin care kits which provides you with full size products, product minis and samples of a variety of products depending on the kit that you choose. The kit for you will ultimately depend on your skin type, so whether you have aging skin or normal/oily skin there are products for you. The kits available include the AGE Smart Starter Kit – for dry and prematurely aging skin; ChromaWhite TRx Regimen – for hyperpigmented skin; Clean Start Starter Kit – for teenagers with acne or spot prone skin; Shave System Kit – for men looking for a smoother, cleaner shave; Body Therapy – for all skin; UltraCalming Sensitised Skin Treatment Kit – for sensitive skin and finally Dermalogica Skin Kits for dry, oily, normal/dry and normal/oily kits.
If you don’t feel confident enough to go out without some make-up on but you still want to look natural then Dermalogica’s Cover Tints are for you. These products are oil free and naturally adapt to the colour of your skin, they also contain SPF 20 to protect your skin against the summer sun and the best part about all of it is the fact that no one will even suspect you’re wearing it.
Finally, there’s nothing worse than chapped and blistered lips through the summer. One of the main reasons that lips blister is because of the sun. Although your lips are one of the most delicate parts of your face a lot of people forget to apply sunscreen and they therefore burn really easily. In order to prevent burnt, blistered lips it’s essential to use a moisturising treatment that will protect them from the environment; Dermalogica’s Control Lip Treatment is small and compact and is the perfect companion for any summer outing.
