When you live somewhere with seasons, you need to adjust your beauty products to be season-appropriate. That means heavier, thicker products to fight winter chills, and lighter creams and oils when the humidity is up and we are all melting.
Keep it oily
Pack away the heavy moisturisers when it’s hot, and keep your hands and feet (and your body) feeling soft with body oil. The light formula is sucked up quickly by the skin, leaving you hydrated but not sticky. We love the Teadora Nourishing Bath & Body Oil because it’s packed with loads of great ingredients like rose hip seed and brazil nut, to keep skin healthy as well as hydrated. Rose hip fights free radicals, which you really need during the sunny summer months when skin is exposed to so many UV rays. We also love the Neutrogena Body Oil for a great, non-greasy oil. The light sesame formula smells fantastic and it sinks in quickly, so you can put it on and pick up your phone without leaving greasy smears on the screen.
Keep it light
If you prefer creams to oils, you need to go for something with a light formula – nothing worse than cloying cream making your skin feel all clogged. Check out Orla Kiely’s hand cream in bergamot and geranium – bergamot is an office favorite here at pedicure. The formula contains shea butter for moisturing and cucumber oil for fighting free radicals, making it the ultimate summer accessory. Another perfect summer hand cream is Eau Thermale Avene Cold Cream Hand Cream. The cold cream formula is non greasy but highly moisturising, particularly on dry skin. Don’t let the name on the tube fool you, this is also great for dry cracked heels.
