Warm weather’s arrival signals an arrival just as significant – glowy skin season. But what’s better than glassy, juicy skin? Skin that's protected, too.
Did you know that damage from UV exposure is cumulative over years? “What’s the single best thing I can do for my skin?” I'm often asked by people when I'm doing their makeup. It’s wearing a high protection SPF, every single day, so your skin's protected from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays (and doubles as a handy, glowy base underneath your makeup). As a makeup artist, I know the dated rumours that sunscreen doesn't play nicely with makeup when you're after that flawless, long-lasting finish. But the sunscreen we can get our mitts on today has come a loooong way.
Trust me, your future self will majorly thank you for it.
Glowy, juicy skin is the trending look that’s so easy to achieve, and relies on the right order of application with the help of some holy-grail products.
So where do we even start when picking the right products to layer? Here's my 4-step glow guide to have on repeat this summer (and you know, always).
1. The sunscreen you’ll want to wear
Whether you wear SPF solo or under makeup, there’s one thing we all look for: a lightweight formula, and invisible finish. La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios Invisible Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+ is a lightweight, fragrance-free sunscreen that's been dermatologically tested for sensitive skin. It doesn’t clog pores and makes for a smooth finish under makeup. This ultra-lightweight fluid is also not greasy, so I won't hear anyone's excuse that your sunscreen ruins your makeup! It also comes in a tinted version if you're after some light coverage while still protecting your skin.
