Instead of soda and sweetened beverages, stick to the good old plain water or herbal teas. Not only will it prevent headache, chapped lips and dehydration, but also keep your skin glowing.
Another thing it may affect in a negative way is you skin cell growth, which is why sunscreen is so vital. So keep applying that sunscreen and your skin will thank you. Our weapon of choice: KLAIRS Mid-day Blue Sun Lotion. Enriched with Guaiazulene, a herbal extract of chamomile that gives this lotion it’s signature light blue tint, it conceals redness, soothes and cools the skin while blocking direct heat in order to prevent the skin from overheating.
Aloe Vera gels have proven their efficiency when it comes to soothing the skin which is why our favourite pick has got to be NATURE REPUBLIC Soothing Aloe Gel, as it contains 92% Aloe and absorbs quickly.
Oily skin types: The COSRX BHA Summer Pore Minish Serum with it’s Betaine Salicylate and 80% Willow Bark Water will gently penetrate into your pores, unclog them and help you get rid of blackheads while Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish will help you get rid of rough skin.
Normal, dry and sensitive skin types: COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid along with Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish.
For best results, use the the Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Scrub twice a week.
Loaded with 30 different types of marine plant extracts, NATURE REPUBLIC Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream is a powerful antioxidant moisturizer for combination and oily skin. Oil-free, gentle, lightweight – COSRX Oil-free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion can be used throughout the year, but it deserves a special mention during the summer. Recommended for all skin types, especially for sensitive ones.
If you happen to work in an air-conditioned environment, you might have noticed it: Air-condition has the nasty side effect of dehumidifying the air and… yes, your skin. Nothing beats a refreshing face mist spritz on hot humid days. Our GLOWRIOUS Editors Team swears by this method, as it keeps you looking fresh throughout the day. Our favourite is the COSRX Centella Water Alcohol-Free Toner as it is made of only 9 ingredients, soothes and cools the skin while being extra gentle with the alcohol-free formula.
Lotus is known as the flower of purification and ETUDE HOUSE 0.2 Therapy Air Mask definitely proves that. Soothing and purifying.
Aint no summer when ETUDE HOUSE 0.2 Therapy Air Green Tea Mask is gone. Refreshing moisture and a soothing effect with green tea benefits is like a cool breeze on a hot day.
In case your skin needs some work on the photoaging and damage caused by the sun, sticking to snail mucine infused products is one of the best things you can do. COSRX Holy Moly Mask is one of them.
If your skin needs a corset and intense hydration after a day in the sun, we highly recommend J.ONEs Jelly Pack Vita 2 Step Mask. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, fermented black tea and water lily extract, this mask is your partner in crime against dull complexion.

Have you ever thought of putting wine on your face? No? Me neither. The consistency makes it a bit difficult. I’d rather just drink it and complain to my girl friends about stupid boys and later have a guilt trip for no reason at all. I’m wandering off, I’m sorry.

Keep on reading why Propolis is the employee of the month when it comes to many skin care ingredients. Let’s talk about honey, honey.
