Posted by Nitya Uppal in Skin Care, Body, Skin Care
In the winter season you’re more than happy to give your parched skin some much-needed nourishment but it’s the summer months that pose a serious problem. On a sweltering hot day the last thing you want after you’ve applied your daily moisturiser is the uncomfortable feeling of leftover oily traces. If you’re thinking about picking up a lightweight, summer-friendly daily cream to get you through this season then here’s a list of products that make the cut.
Over the past 20 years Charlotte Tilbury has been mixing her own age-defying skin care known in the industry as 'Charlotte's Magic Cream'. Tested backstage, it's a secret mix of patented anti-age ingredients, hyaluronic acid booster plus floral extracts that lift and transform tired skin in an instant. On applying, the skin is flooded with moisture for a glowing complexion in a flash, no matter how dehydrated or lacklustre your skin may have looked previously. Trust us when we tell you that you’ll be thankful we introduced you to this particular product.
If you do a quick search online you’ll find that this product by Vichy has its own devoted following - it’s that good! This moisturiser features a soft, sheer and lightweight texture that instantly melts on your skin. Not just that, it also boasts a water-resistant formula which is perfect for an outdoorsy day. It is a high-potency sunscreen that contains effective UVA and UVB filters for broad-spectrum defense against damaging sun rays.
This sun fluid combines immediate and effective UVA/UVB protection with an ultra light formula that dries instantly. The hydrating fluid spreads easily over your skin for a weightless dry touch feel. The non-sticky and non-greasy formula absorbs instantly without leaving white marks and your skin feels silky and smooth. Enriched with an antioxidant Vitamin E derivative, it also helps to prevent sun induced premature skin ageing.
Royal jelly is known to be one of the world’s most nutrient-rich substances. Along with protein, amino acids, minerals, biotin, it contains more than a hundred other nutrients - so you can only imagine its amazing benefits for our skin care. Burt’s Bees’ Radiance Body Lotion £9.99 is one such product as it uses royal jelly at its main ingredient to help enhance your skin's natural glow. Bee pollen in the formula helps skin maintain its essential moisture and restore its natural radiance. Its quick-absorbing formula is light to touch, but heavy in nutrients - making it your perfect companion for this summer.
The last product on the list is this amazing offering by Elizabeth Arden. It is a lightweight daily cream that hydrates and immediately brightens your skin. It is a pro at smoothening the look of pores and minimising the appearance of discolouration. After a week of application your skin looks smooth and supple, more even-toned, revitalised and luminous.
