5 Ways To Get The Summer Glow
1. Grab A Grape Water Hydration Solution
Like our pun there? Yes, we've said it once and we'll say it again, Caudalie Vinosource-Hydra Grape Water Gel Moisturizer, 26, has every summer skin eventuality covered. Dry skin? Pick up a pot. Sensitive skin? That's right, pick up a pot. It's lightweight too, meaning it's perfect for those who want to moisturise their skin without encountering a greasy residue.
2. Up Your Water Intake
Backing up the benefits of a seriously hydrating moisturiser with a good water intake is essential during summer. Try to drink around 3L of water a day, more if you exercise or are outside in the sun a lot. A good water keeps dullness at bay and can even increase skin's elasticity.
3. Try A Face Massage
Settled in for an evening in front of your favourite Netflix show? Why not try a face massage? Just two minutes of a DIY face massage can aid lymphatic drainage and boost circulation. Use Caudalie's Vinosource-Hydra Grape Water Gel Moisturizer, 26, the Caudalie Vinosource-Hydra Overnight Recovery Oil, 29, or the Caudalie Vinosource-Hydra S.O.S Thirst-quenching Serum, 29, for lubrication and search face massage' or Gua Sha face massage' - if you have a Gua Sha tool - on YouTube for a how-to. Say hello to that glow!
4. Make Time For A Mask
It's easy to surrender to a fast pace of life but taking a moment for some me- time' pays dividends when it comes to decreasing stress levels and, as a result, the condition of our skin. Add a moisturising mask like Caudalie's Vinosource- Hydra Moisturizing Mask, 23, into the mix, which uses organic grape water alongside organic centella asiatica to soothe and hydrate, and you have all the makings of a glow-giving hydration booster. Leave on for 10 minutes or use as a repairing overnight mask.
5. Embrace A Flannel
Sure, this trick sounds simple, but working a flannel or two into your everyday skincare routine during summer can boost your skin's radiance too. Using a flannel to gently whip away a cleanser not only ensures that you remove those hard-to-budge summer essentials like SPF properly, but you end up very gently exfoliating your skin too. You'll notice the difference in your skin's luminosity.
Thought that summer meant sacrificing your glow? Think again.
