With the new season on its way, and plenty more sunshine and holidays on the horizon, it’s about time we started thinking about our summer beauty. It makes sense that we adjust our skincare and make-up as we would our wardrobe. Just like you wouldn’t think to wear a heavy winter coat on a warm day, you wouldn’t want your face to swelter under a heavy moisturiser. From spring onwards, we may find ourselves drawn towards dewy, lightweight bases and tinted SPFs that give glow without the high coverage we crave over winter. There are the obvious differences between the seasons to contend with – hot weather requires the kind of beauty heroes that can keep us protected from sweat, UV rays, humidity. But also, at this time of year, I tend to be a bit more carefree when it comes to my look, experimenting with brighter pops of colour, sweeter fragrances and a less-is-more approach to haircare that’s more suited to days on the beach (or at least to make it look that way).
However it isn’t always easy overhauling your routine for the sunshine season. After all, we’ve been set in our ways all winter long so it can be a challenge to transition away from our favourites when they no longer serve our needs. That’s we’re here to make it as simple as possible to make the switch.
First up, head straight to Harvey Nichols – our preferred choice for a luxe beauty purchase, whatever the season.
