Summer is officially upon us! You might be planning to go away on a holiday, or you’re doing a staycation, or simply want to feel your best. Here are some summer beauty tips from D.O.R. Beauty Edit to keep you glowing this summer!

Keep it in the fridge

Along with your regular drinks and food – why not try popping some of your skincare in the fridge to keep them cool while the sun is out? You’ll love how refreshing a refrigerated mist is on your skin… you can also keep your guasha in there to maximise the cooling and depuffing benefits.

Exfoliate that skinbody scrub

Using an exfoliant is a great way to exfoliate to remove all the dead skin cells and leave you with glowing skin underneath. Who doesn’t love the feel of silky-smooth skin?

Chemical exfoliants often use alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic acid and lactic acid and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) like salicylic acid which are great ways to smooth the skin without disrupting the barrier – leaving you with radiant skin. For a more sensory experience, you can also use a manual scrub.

Many body scrubs work best if used before getting in the bath or the shower so that you don’t end up dissolving the sugar/salt base before they’re able to work their magic. Your skin will be smooth and soft afterwards!

Of course, remember to follow up with your SPF (and be sure to reapply throughout the day) particularly when using exfoliants as they make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

Gently fragranced products

Don’t forget about fragrance! I love a product with a scent, discover our range of aromatherapy based and floral scented skincare and hair products. Guava and Gold has a beautiful range of bath of body products which are gorgeously scented for a delicate fragrance on the skin.

If you’re into a little shimmer – Guava and Gold’s Shimmering Body Oil will help you get that glow (it also smells delicious!).
