Three hacks to banish summer skin problems

Say goodbye to make-up meltdowns with and summer breakouts.

Don’t let the February heat curb your summer sexyness! These three tips and tricks will help you look and feel your best at work, next to the pool and at sundowners by the beach.

Make-up meltdown be gone

Start with a primer: Use a silicone-free primer to prep the skin, which will not only allow your skin to breathe and sweat less but will also help set your foundation and prevent that ugly summer slide. Try the revolutionary wet n wild Prime Focus Impossible Primer (R189.95) for a mattifying and hydrating, silicone-free primer.

Keep it light: Liquid foundations can often literally slide down your face, especially if it is an HD or full-cover product. Opt for a light-weight, dewy foundation such as wet n wild Photo Focus Dewy Foundation (R129.95). This weightless, nourishing foundation seamlessly blends into the  skin for a natural, all-day wear that will keep you feeling fresh and hydrated.

No more shiny skin and summer breakouts

Cleanse away bad skin: Shiny, oily looking skin is a constant struggle during the warmer months and, if not managed properly, can cause breakouts due to the excess sebum clogging pores. Use a good quality, foaming cleanser twice a day such as Nip+Fab Salicylic Fix Gel Cleanser (R219.95). The salicylic acid helps lift away dirt, impurities and excess oil whilst allantoin provides a moisture barrier and locks in hydration. Follow the cleanse with a lightweight moisturizer with a high SPF to protect your skin from the harsh sun.

Bye bye pigmentation

Add a good dose of Vitamin C to your skin care regime to help reduce and prevent sun-induced pigmentation. Vitamin C helps brighten the skin, while making it more resilient to the effects of UV exposure. It will also help inhibit melanin production which in turn reduces pigmentation and evens your skin tone. Try a combination of Creightons Vitamin C Superfruits 2% Ultra Glow Serum (R139.95) and Skin Radiance Moisturiser (R89.95).
