We're well into the summer months and with this beautiful season in full swing, I want my skin to reflect the warmth, dreaminess, and carefree vibes of summertime. You know the look: gently sun-kissed skin that gives off a dewy, effortless glow. The type of skin that looks like you spent a day at the beach, yet is also simultaneously put together.
If you’re also craving a dreamy, ethereal look, look no further. We’ve rounded up our favourite beauty must-haves to give you that healthy glow even when the days aren't as long.
Every year our skin cells turnover at a slower rate. If you’ve ever wondered why your skin may not look as fresh as it did five years ago, this is likely the culprit.
Luckily, we have natural, concentrated exfoliants like Indie Lee’s Gentle Daily Peel. This peel uses plant-derived Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to gently buff away dead skin cells and make our skin look even and refined.
There are many reasons you’ll want to exfoliate, and we’ve compiled a list of our top benefits here.
Nourish With a Facial Oil
Nothing gives glow quite like a facial oil. Not only does it provide luxurious moisture to the skin, but it also gives the look of highlighted, nourished skin.
We love to use a facial oil that provides nutrients as well as moisture. The RMS Facial Oil helps to balance skin’s oil levels with lightweight Jojoba Oil, while multi-tasker Rosehip Oil works to even skin tone and fade excess pigmentation.

Use a Dewy Skin Tint
The heat of summer is the perfect excuse to ditch fuller, heavier foundations for a more lightweight, illuminating face tint.
Although Graydon’s Face Glow is marketed as a face primer, we love to use it as an all-over face base. Its dewy finish and light coverage give the perfect no-makeup makeup look.
Face Glow gives a light wash of colour and provides just enough coverage to even out redness on the skin. It contains Shea Butter to deeply nourish and Coffee Leaf Extract to brighten and awaken the skin.
Add Colour With a Cream Blush
Everyone adores a sunkissed look, but we don’t want to put our skin at risk by being out in the sun unprotected. Sunscreen is key, friends! However, we’ve figured out a hack to get that beachy look without compromising our skin health.
Using a cream blush like the Blush Balm by Elate Cosmetics allows you to get that flush of colour and brings life back into your skin. I love to use the shade Savvy along my cheeks and even a bit on my nose. It gives the illusion of a day out in the sun and is the perfect universal colour.
