Your Spring & Summer Beauty Update

A change of season calls for a change of routine when it comes to your skincare and makeup. Beauty & health writer Lolita Walters shares her top makeup and skincare tips for the warmer months.
 
What are the top items to switch up in spring/summer across makeup and why?

 

With the warmer weather, it’s the ideal time to go “light” on the makeup front. Swapping your foundation for a BB cream or tinted moisturiser is an easy way to stay fresh faced in the heat.

 

What are the top items to switch up in spring/summer across skincare and why?

 The number one skincare tip for the spring and summer is to protect your skin with sunscreen to prevent premature ageing and skin damage. It’s best to choose a natural sunscreen that uses a barrier method like zinc oxide as opposed to harmful chemicals. You can switch your usual facial moisturiser for a face specific sunscreen when you’re heading outside.

 

What are some spring/summer makeup tips? 

Opt for either soft pastels or bright bursts of colour when selecting lip and eye shades and veer away from strong or dark makeup, to go with the change of season.

 

What are some spring/summer skincare tips? 

For glowing, youthful skin, it’s really important to stay hydrated. Make sure you are consuming 2-3 litres of water each day. Coconut water is also a great hydration booster and delicious on hot beach days!

Also make sure that you cleanse your skin properly at the end of the day to remove any makeup and dirt, as in the heat the pores open up and can become clogged more easily, leading to breakouts.

 

What are the ‘buzz’ ingredients to use in spring/summer?

Green tea and matcha everything! Bursting with antioxidants, it’s an amazing anti-ageing skincare ingredient and you can pop the powder into a smoothie for a nutritional boost too!

 

Which beach bag beauty products are best for the beach?

I won’t be heading to the beach this season without my Wotnot 30 SPF Anti-Ageing Facial Sunscreen & Primer!

 

Which clutch bag products are best for party season?

My secret weapon is to keep my Wotnot Facial Wipes on hand… Perfect for a quick refresh or to take off your makeup in a flash if you get home at 4am!

 

What are some top beauty tips for Spring Racing carnival? 

Experiment with face jewels and glitter… no longer reserved for the boho look, an embellished face can scream sophisticated glamour.
