BWA’s Summer Survival Guide: Part Two- Skincare

Part two of our summer survival guide, on how to look after your skin!

Our top tips:

1. Apply sunscreen daily on your face and body (not forgetting the ears, feet, and backs of your hands of course)

2. Investing in a 30+ broad spectrum sunscreen is essential, and means that you’re covered from the harsh rays of both UVA and UVB rays: the difference being that UVA rays are deeply penetrating rays responsible for wrinkles, leathery skin, and sun spots; and UVB rays are the ones that singe the top layers of the skin, causing skin cancer and sunburn.

3. For light, oil-free, and non greasy face/neck coverage, try Banana Boats ‘Faces’ Sun Cream. It’s fast absorbing, and when worn under make up, you’d have no idea it was there. For body, Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Body Mist is great. Applied like a spray, it’s incredibly fast and easy to use, and has a light feel and finish

4. Invest in two lip balms: one with sun protection for the days, and a soothing, restoring one for bedtime. We all know chapped, dry, and sunburned lips are definitely not attractive. We suggest Burt’s Bees Natural Rejuvenating Lip Balm for day, and Kora’s Vitamin Enhanced Lip Balm for night.

5. Ensure you take your make up off at night to ensure a clean, fresh complexion. Keep make up wipes by your bedside for extra late nights, but nothing beats actually washing your face. Follow with toner and a light moisturiser designed for night-time to reap the benefits. Try Clinique’s Three Step program which includes a cleanser, toner and moisturiser that can be chosen to suit your skin type.

    Just thought I’d add, Le Tan’s Coconut Lotion 30+ sunscreen is amazing. It smells delicious, it feels like a light moisturiser and it works! I have skin like casper so I would know 🙂

  • Reply DuckieBox Friday 23rd September, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    if you do happen to get burnt, slap on some aloe vera gel or after-sun lotion and it cools it down so much and feels soooo good on the skin, but of course, SUNSCREEENNNN~!!! (:

    Instead of Lucas’ pawpaw, I use Khiel’s lip balm during the summer as it contains spf… I’m not too sure whether pawpaw contains protection from the sun
