Best Beauty Products for Summer – Staff Picks!
Exfoliation products are my year-round must-haves, but are particularly important in summer after a dry winter. Use either a manual sugar scrub which also helps with hydration due to the oil content or Pure Fiji’s newer coconut scrub (great for tanners as it has no oil). Using a handheld Riffi Mit (machine washable) for those extra dry days or Ultra’s brand new retexturising lotion for easy chemical exfoliation. Apply this like a lotion and it is all you’ll need for flawlessly hydrated skin. Be sure to use an SPF afterwards. Finally, finish with a hydrating moisturiser for summer-ready legs.
Without a doubt my summer must-have is hands down SPF! If you aren’t protecting your skin with an SPF every day you may as well throw your serums in the bin because sun damage will undo all their hard work! We have a fantastic range of lightweight daily moisturisers with complete spectrum sun protection. As well as mineral sun and body protect available. For those of you constantly on the go, we recommend over makeup SPF touch-ups. Jane Iredale has an amazing mineral powder sunscreen too, a must for the beach bag as it can be applied over makeup and on the scalp for protection!
My favourite summer must-have product is the Pure Fiji Body Lotion and butter. Great as an all-over body lotion and the butter helps keep your feet hydrated especially in summer when we are wearing open shoes all day, every day. All of the infusions smell amazing too which makes it hard to pick a favourite! Because of this, I have three of the lotions at home (Oops).
As quick as the water warms up in Nelson, my family and I are out in and on it. With that comes a lot of environmental changes to our skin and the Pure Fiji Dilo Rescue Gel, straight out of the fridge, becomes our best friend and must-have for the summer. It soothes, nourishes and repairs the damaged skin. It’s the perfect all-rounder for sunburn, windburn, insect bites, dermatitis and all things summer!
With summer coming up it’s very easy to get a little too much sun especially our face, Juvenate’s phyto renew mask is very cooling and rehydrating perfect after getting burnt or kissed by the sun! It has Aloe Vera which reduces the pain of sunburn and helps to reduce the redness as well. It also has hyaluronic acid which rehydrates the skin and plumps fine lines and wrinkles. Personally, I put mine in the fridge for a while before using it, it feels so refreshing perfect after a bit much sun.
With summer right around the corner, I always make sure I stock up on some Sunescape’s tanning range to get that gorgeous glow without the damage of the sun, and always using sunscreen of course! For glowing skin, it’s important to hydrate from the inside out. 😊 I am a fruit lover so I love the summer for the variety of fresh fruit available in this region, especially watermelon, strawberries, or cherries!
