Pack these skin saviours into your summer survival kit and enjoy outdoor-days guilt-free.

Healthy summer skin goes beyond a golden glow – it means ensuring that our skin is being protected against short- and long-term damage, as well as actively improving skin health. These are the top three goodies you won’t want to face the summer without...

Everyday essential

Our top pick is the Daily UV Defence SPF50, which provides effective, broad-spectrum protection with a light, non-greasy feeling on the skin (if a sun cream is greasy, it won’t get used – or definitely not as often as it should). To ensure this product goes above and beyond, we’ve also included vitamin B3 and Superox-C™ (the world’s richest source of vitamin C) to help reduce the signs of age spots, protect against free radical damage, smooth the skin and improve radiance.

For best results:

  • Protect yourself whatever the weather. Cloud and overcast conditions block as little as 20% of UV rays so use a topical sun protection product whatever the weather. • Protect yourself wherever you are. Snow, sand and water all reflect sunlight. Likewise, some UV rays will reach you in the shade too.
  • Protect yourself early. Apply sun protection 20 minutes before exposure and again when you go outside.

Thinking outside the box

For those of us who want to do the absolute best for our skin (especially important if you have fair skin, go on holidays, or spend a lot of time outdoors), you can help to support skin’s environmental defence with the Tan & Defend Skin Supplement – suncream’s side-kick. Patented ingredient NutroxSun™, a combination of citrus and rosemary extracts, has been shown to have a number of benefits, including a reduction in skin redness and improved skin tone and elasticity after sun exposure.

For best results:

  • How to take: For general skin health in all seasons, take all year round, or for the purposes of helping to protect skin during summer months or on holiday, start taking 3 months before sun exposure. As always, continue using a topical sun screen product, stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm and wear a hat and sunglasses.

Skin’s little treat

You will have noticed that despite all the talk of skin’s oiliness and shine during the summer, the skin on our arms, legs, feet and hands are often left feeling dry, thanks to a cocktail of air conditioning, chlorine, salt water, air travel and sun exposure. Remedy dry, uncomfortable, lacklustre skin with the luxurious, fast-absorbing Replenish Body Butter, packed with shea and cocoa butters to moisturise, phytoestrogens to help re-densify skin and REFORCYL® to improve skin’s firmness, wrinkle depth, elasticity and smoothness.

For best results:

  • Use on damp skin. Apply within five minutes of bathing for longer-lasting hydration and better absorption of the beneficial ingredients.
  • Use everyday. If that sounds like too much effort, remember it’s only five minutes a day – and keeping skin healthy is easier than trying to rescue it from neglect!
