Praise be! The summer heat has finally settled in the UK and we’re making sure we soak it all up before it is inevitably replaced by those looming clouds again. Our arms and legs are looking beautifully bronzed and our faces have finally regained the colour they lost over winter. But as the mercury rises, so does the risk of sunburn, dry faces and sweaty foreheads, which we all know is a beauty no-no. Our carefully applied make-up slips off within seconds as we turn our heads towards the skies in a desperate attempt to get an even tan, yet many of us know little of the damage being caused as we forget again to put our high SPF creams on that morning. But what seems like a needless additional chore in our daily skincare regime is often a necessity, come rain or shine. And with the added annoyance of disappearing foundation, congested pores and de-hydrated skin, our summer beauty routine can quickly fall into disarray. But don’t worry, there are some simple solutions to get your seasonal skincare and make-up rituals back on track.

A few of our favourite summer beauty tips to get you started? First, invest in high SPF tinted moisturisers that promise both coverage and sun protection.

Add a toning spray into your steps to set your makeup, and carry a mist with you at all times to give your face an instant moisture hydration.
