Saving your skin this summer

Looking after your summer skin.

Our skin can go through a bit of a rough time over the summer months! We leave the comfort of our aircon, cars, office or house into the scorching summer heat, to jump in the pool or the ocean—perhaps soak up some sun after lathering ourselves with sunscreens. Possibly over indulge a little (or a lot!) with summer festivities.

All this fun can leave our skin a little worse for wear, so we’ve put together some tips to keep your skin glowing in tip top condition this summer.

Extra heat means dehydrated skin is expected to follow. Just because you’re oily doesn’t mean your skin is hydrated. Air conditioning, swimming in chlorine or salt water, even a few cheeky margaritas with the girls can contribute. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much water we drink we still have to give our skin extra hydration. For the ultimate hydrating skin feed apply Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum under our NEW Hyaluronic Hydrating Booster Mask and sleep in it! Let your restful slumber do all the work and wake up to the freshest, most hydrated, glowing skin, ever!

With application upon application of sunscreen in the warmer months, it is super important to make sure we’re thoroughly removing it all, as sunscreen ingredients can typically block pores and we don’t want any nasty breakouts, try The Uncomplicated Cleanser. With a double cleanse, this super gentle formulation will remove all sunscreen and makeup without drying out our skin, leaving your skin soft and ready to apply your favourite serums.

With Christmas festivities in full swing, and always wanting to look our best—often we apply more makeup than usual. Ensure you’re applying a non-comedogenic makeup to avoid breaking out. The esmi range of Liquid or Powder Mineral Foundation formulations are actually treatments for your skin! These beauties only contain purposefully good ingredients for your skin, they won’t clog your pores and will allow your skin to breath. Apply a dusting of powder over the top of liquid foundation for a full coverage look, and even try using our Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum as a primer. Remember the double cleanse when it’s time to come off.


For a quiet night in and some deserved self-love, we suggest a pampering treat with this luxe regime. Perfect to brighten your skin when it’s feeling a little lacklustre or even to give it extra glow before a special event.

Step 1. Cleanse with The Uncomplicated Cleanser.
Step 2. Follow with Detoxifying Exfoliating Charcoal Serum, leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse.
Step 3. Apply Pomegranate Brightening Serum.
Step 4. Apply Ultra Nourishing Booster Mask.
Step 5. Put on your favourite tunes, pour yourself a beverage, put your feet up and RELAX!
