5 Essential Products for a Natural Summer Glow

By admin 4 Min Read

With summer on our doorstep, it’s finally time to start looking into how we can enhance our natural glow with a carefully curated skincare and makeup routine. 

Using the right products during the summer months is important – you need to prioritise not only protection from the harsh sun but overall nourishment and hydration as well. Here are five of our must-have items to help you effortlessly achieve that glazed doughnut glow we all want to help us shine in the summertime. 


Let’s start with the star of the show for a summer makeup routine – bronzer. A great bronzer can imitate that sun-kissed look when you haven’t actually spent much time outdoors just yet!

To avoid looking unnatural, make sure that you match your bronzer to your skin type. Choose a light bronzer with a peach or pink undertone if you have fair skin and a rich cocoa bronzer if you have a deeper skin tone. Warm, golden bronzers work best for girls with a medium to olive skin tone, and a hint of glitter will give anyone and everyone a delicious, healthy summer glow.


Beyond makeup, there’s a lot that you can (and should) be doing for your skin in the summer months to enhance your glow naturally. Sun protection is your number one task!

To protect your skin from UV rays, look for sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, preferably 50. Mineral sunscreens that contain titanium dioxide or zinc oxide are gentler products that will be a better option for those with sensitive skin. For outdoor workouts or spending time by the pool, water-resistant formulations are a great option. You’ll need to make the effort to reapply around every two hours for the best possible protection. 

Hydrating Mist

To feel refreshed and renewed throughout the day, it’s a good idea to carry around a hydrating mist with you. Often, these products contain mostly (or only) water, but looking for a mist with some extra ingredients for added hydration and nourishment is a good idea.

Plant extracts like cucumber, rosewater, or chamomile smell divine and have added benefits for your skin, and hyaluronic acid is an amazing ingredient that helps seal in moisture, keeping your skin looking full and glowy all day long.

Lightweight Moisturizer

For the summertime, it’s essential that you invest in a good, lightweight moisturizer. These types of moisturizers will keep your skin properly hydrated without feeling too thick or heavy. 

Look for oil-free options that instead make use of ingredients like glycerine, squalene, or aloe vera to boost moisture without clogging your pores. Once again, hyaluronic acid is another great ingredient that will give your skin a silky smooth texture and hold in moisture for those long, hot days.

Tinted Lip Balm

Don’t forget to take care of your lips too! Your skincare routine should always include a good lip balm with SPF protection and hydrating ingredients.

Look for lip balms with nourishing nutrients like shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E. To add a splash of colour to your lips and keep up with summer trends, look for a tinted balm that matches well with your natural skin tone.
