Beauty secrets for healthy summer skin

It’s a busy time of year. Year-end work reports. School reports. Office parties. Festive season gift buying. Never mind making time for yourself.

Su-Marie Annandale,  Clere brand manager, advises that it’s important to take some time out for yourself, especially towards the end of the year because the last thing you want is burn out just before you go on leave.

Even something as simple as a relaxing bath and a top to toe after bath moisturising session, can make you feel energised, and your skin will thank you too.

“It’s all too easy, with last minute work stress, to neglect your skin as the summer heat sets in. Our skin isn’t as dry and itchy as it is in the winter, however skimping on skin care isn’t a good idea.”

Beauty secrets for looking after your skin and well-being this summer:


It’s tempting to ease up on moisturising because your skin may not feel as dry. But good moisturisers work over time, promoting healthy skin with consistent use. We don’t stop eating well or exercising in the summer, so we shouldn’t stop caring for our skin. Use a body moisturiser like Clere’s Tropical Coconut; a rich gel formulation, enhanced with a NutriRich combination of Glycerine Gel, Tissue Oil, Vitamins E & A and Natural Moisturising Factors.


Dead skin cells sit on the surface making your skin look dull, rough and dry. By exfoliating, you’ll remove these cells, allowing your more radiant, healthier summer skin to shine through. Exfoliating also allows skin cells to regenerate quicker, helping to keep ageing at bay.

Keep hydrated

Drinking water benefits how well your body functions and ultimately affects how your skin looks and feels. Proper hydration helps flush toxins from your body. When toxins build up, they cause organs such as your kidneys to work less efficiently, which has a direct impact on your skin. Sip water throughout the day to keep yourself hydrated.


The sun’s rays are incredibly harmful to our skin. Apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 onto your skin every day.


Lack of sleep can lead to increased levels of stress hormones, which may slow the production of collagen in the skin. When our skin stops producing collagen, it begins to lose elasticity and starts looking tired and worn. Rest and get as much sleep as you can before the mad rush of the New Year begins.
