My Summer Skin Essentials

For me, Summer is all about glowing skin, a radiant complexion, a great healthy bod and Gigi Hadid beach hair. I'm a big believer in getting as much sleep as possible, drinking litres of water and eating an alkaline-based diet that is high in anti-oxidants and low in sugar. But I'm also a huge believer in using good skincare products that actually work and give me luminous, blemish-free skin that glows from within. Here are my Summer skin essentials and how I use them.
1. First, I prep my face with an exfoliating scrub that removes any flaky skin and gives me a gorgeous smooth complexion. This is a must-have during the summer months. I love using St. Ives Apricot Scrub once or twice a week. It's grainy and really gets rid of the dirt in my pores. I also love Dermalogica Microfoliant. It's gentle and totally brilliant for everyday use.
2. Next, I apply an eye mask and a face mask. My faves are Skyn Iceland Eye Gels and SK-II Facial Treatment Masks and I let them sit on my skin for as long as humanly possible. Masks are amazing for giving the complexion a big hydration boost, which is great when you want glowy skin all day every day. If you don't have time to sit for 20 minutes, try the Bliss Triple Instant Energising Mask, which only take 3 minutes to work. Gotta love that.

3. After I remove the masks, I massage a lightweight mosituriser into the skin. During the summer  months, I often find that a thick moisturiser can make my makeup looking and feeling too heavy, so I opt for a lotion instead. I love Creme de la Mer Soft Cream and Embryolisse. They both give just the right amount of moisture and dewiness to summer skin.
4. Finally, I dab on an eye cream. Kiehl's Avocado Eye Cream and Tatcha Revitalising Eye Cream are my Summer go-to's. I also apply a super-moisturising lip balm. Definitely a Summer must-have. I'm totally in love with Eos Lip Balm. Such a genius product. My lips never felt so good since using it.

Love, Elle xo
