Hot Weather & Summer Skincare Tips


When the weather is warm and sunny, it’s extra important to make sure your skin is shielded from the elements and looking its best from head to toe. Here are our top five summer skincare tips to beat the heat and have beautiful skin even in a hot and humid climate.

The Sunscreen That Doesn’t Feel Like Sunscreen

The problem: You know you need to wear sunscreen, but you hate the way it feels, especially in the summer’s sweltering heat!

The solution: RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50. Don’t be fooled by its weightless texture; it not only protects skin from sun damage, but is also loaded with beneficial antioxidants to help fight off pollutants.

The Shine Stopper

The problem: Heat and humidity can melt makeup, and sweat mixed with oil can leave skin looking greasy.

The solution: Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Primer. This hot weather skincare essential gives you a silky, powder-like finish that controls oil and helps makeup stay put despite those high temperatures. The icing on the cake? It also minimises the appearance of pores.

The Body Bump Banisher

The problem: In the summertime, shaving your legs and bikini area more often can result in unflattering red bumps.

The solution: BHA (salicylic acid), a must-have in your skincare routine. It soothes temperamental skin and diminishes red bumps, plus its potent, yet gentle, exfoliating action removes the buildup of dead skin for a softer, smoother surface. Try our Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA! It also significantly lessens the appearance of hard, reddened, clogged pores many people have on their arms and legs, and is even suitable for those with keratosis pilaris.

The “Bacne” Fighter

The problem: Body breakouts become more noticeable with the onset of skin-baring hot weather, especially when it comes to bacne (back acne).

The solution: CLEAR Body Spray 2% BHA. This easy-to-use exfoliant features a unique spray nozzle you can hold at any angle for those hard-to-reach areas on your back. Follow that up with our CLEAR Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment 5% BP to stop stubborn acne in its tracks.

Side note: If you are an expecting mother, do check with your doctor if your sunscreen is safe for use during pregnancy.
