Trust us, your skin will thank you for it
We’re all aboard the wellness wagon and know that getting gorgeous summer skin relies on brilliant beauty products. But before you head off to buy new skincare this season, there are a few things you should probably know…
The ban on the sale of products that use microbeads is coming into effect in July, which is great news for marine environments, but there are still plenty of chemicals in our beauty products that we could do without.
Lots of so-called skincare saviours have parabens added to extend their shelf life but they may be bad news for your skin. And, the next time you’re lathering up with a creamy face-wash, check if it uses sodium lauryl sulphate – this is what makes it foam, but it’s another chemical compound you’re better off without.
We all want to be more informed about what we’re putting on our skin, so do your research or make it easy and shop at Holland & Barrett. It’s totally committed to clean beauty and being transparent when it comes to listing exactly what goes into every product, which means no hidden surprises!
Here are some of our fave new finds to help you get your glow on this summer…
Weleda Skin Food, £6.95 for 30ml, is a rich, nourishing cream packed-full of gorgeous things including extracts of wild pansy, chamomile, calendula and rosemary. Brilliant for dry skin on your face and body, this 100% organic skin treat is a total life saver in summer – plus, the packaging is both chic and eco-conscious.
Pep your skin with Sukin Oil Balancing + Charcoal Purifying Gel Cleanser, £9.99. Packed with soothing chamomile and deep-cleansing bamboo charcoal, it’ll leave your complexion looking luminous.
Radiance in a bottle? PurePotions Skin Salvation Daily Moisturiser, £24.99, is the next best thing. Boost your circulation by using your fingers to massage your face in slow circular movements when you’re applying it and help the shea butter and protective calendula really sink in.
Your lips are one of the thinnest and delicate parts of the skin on your body, so exfoliate gently to get rid of dry skin. We love Grounded Mango Lip Scrub, £4.95, which uses tiny sugar granules to lightly buff the skin and jojoba oil to give a moisturising sheen.
Want a more dewy, flawless complexion? Even out your skin tone and boost collagen in one swoop with Beauty Kitchen’s Beauty Boosting BB Cream, £14.99, which contains 100% natural, microalgae and plant extracts to naturally blur imperfections.
