Summer Skincare Tips

For Total Radiance

Summer is around the corner and this means it’s time to re-think your skincare regime to suit the warmer months. Why? Because our skins’ ‘behave’ differently in the heat than in the cold. The heat and sun flushes the moisture out of your skin. So it’s imperative to step-up your skincare routine to look great this summer.

Here are some tips from the radiance-experts at new Dawn Body Lotions and Creams to help you get ready for our favourite time of year.

Know your soaps

Heat makes our skin produce more oil, so it can be tempting to wash your body with a strong cleanser. However, these may do more harm than good because while it's good to remove excess oil. It’s also NOT good to strip the skin of oil completely. The rule of thumb is, if your skin feels tight, your soap is too astringent. Rather opt for pH neutral cleansers and soap that remove the dirt but maintain your skin’s delicate balance.

Choose Light, Hydrating Moisturisers That Soothe

The summer heat also makes us perspire more and lose natural moisture from our skin. Experts recommend that you quench parched skin with light, hydrating moisturisers, like Dawn’s Aloe Vera and Avocado Oil lotion that hydrates and soothes sensitive, weather beaten skin. It goes on light but gives your skin all the moisture it needs without feeling greasy for all-day radiance and complete glowing skin confidence.

Lucky for you this variant is also available in a thicker, richer cream format for the days that you need a bit more coverage. For those of us who love a little summer sparkle, why not boost your inner glow with a hint of gold dust? We highly recommend Dawn’s Radiant Glow and Gold Dust Body Lotion because it gives you a dose of hydration and leaves you looking glamorous and radiant.

Your Skin Loves Water

Moisturise your skin from the inside out by drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to keep your skin happy and hydrated.

Don’t Forget the Sunblock

Offset the harmful effects of UV rays on skin by wearing a decent sunblock with a high SPF. Wearing sunscreen everyday will prevent premature aging and sunspots for a more even and fresh-looking skin tone.
