Kendall Jenner on the red carpet.
For a lucky few, summer means glowing golden skin worthy of some serious selfie-snapping. But if like us, your skin is prone to heat-induced pimples, patchiness and other niggling skin concerns, scroll down below where we reveal the ultimate beauty hacks to whipping your pores into tip-top condition.
Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel from Boots Pharmacy found at Majid Al Futtaim City Centres
We all know the importance of thoroughly washing our face daily, and while gentle cream cleansers might suffice during the cooler months when skin is at its driest. During summer opt for a slightly stronger formula to ensure skin is squeaky clean and rid of excess oil as well as any sunscreen residue that can clog pores.
Our top pick, Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel, will keep your complexion clean and refreshed without leaving skin feeling stripped.
Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum, Sephora Dubai
If our mother’s taught us anything in the beauty department it’s to always cleanse, tone and moisturise – and while you can now skip the middle step (toners can be overly-drying), a good moisturiser is key all year round.
Swap thick and heavy cream formulas for a lightweight but deeply penetrating serum packed with Hyaluronic Acid – the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum is a new favourite.
GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment, Sephora Dubai
Whether you’ve got a few minutes spare in the morning or an evening free after work, take the time to treat your skin with a pampering mask. You’ll find a mask for every skin woe under the sun, be it resurfacing, rejuvenating or nourishing. But during the hotter months when skin can become congested, look for skin-clearing ingredients such as sulphur and salicylic acid.
We can vouch for the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment - this multi-tasking mud mask draws out dirt and fights breakouts while brightening and softening skin.
