Charlotte's Simple Summer Skincare Tips

Cleanse AM and PM

Summer weather can cause a build-up of sweat, dirt and grime on your skin. Plus, if you’re spending more time outdoors, your skin gets exposed to more toxins and pollutants. This is why cleansing in the summertime is absolutely ESSENTIAL.

Charlotte’s face cleansers will help you achieve a RADIANT complexion during the summer by cleansing your skin of dirt, sweat and residue makeup. For an ULTRA-CLEAN and PURIFIED complexion, try double cleansing with the award-winning Goddess Cleansing Ritual dual cleanser. Or for a super-nourishing balm cleanser that multi-tasks, try the 3-in-1 Multi Miracle Glow for skin that looks SMOOTH & REFRESHED.

Tilbury Tip: Don’t forget to remove your makeup! Before using your favourite cleanser at the end of the day, use Charlotte’s Take It All Off eye makeup remover to gently remove your eye and lip makeup with a simple SHAKE, SOAK and SWIPE!


Exfoliate Regularly

Because heat can make you more prone to oily skin, it’s crucial to exfoliate during the summertime. Charlotte’s Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial helps gently remove dead skin cells for GLEAMING and GLOWY-LOOKING skin. Simply apply an even layer to your cleansed face and rinse off after up to 20 minutes before continuing your usual skincare routine.

Apply SPF Every Day

Charlotte recommends wearing SPF all year round to protect and nourish your skin. But in the summertime, SPF is a crucial, don’t-leave-home-without-it skincare essential.

Charlotte’s Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer should be the last product you apply as part of your skincare routine before your makeup. It protects and hydrates your skin with SPF 50, hyaluronic acid and pollution defence for a PERFECTLY PRIMED, PROTECTED complexion.

Go Easy on the Retinol

Your skin is more prone to irritation and sensitivity during summertime. For this reason, you may want to go easy on the retinol. This MAGIC ingredient is derived from vitamin A and works hard to unclog your pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a PLUMPER-LOOKING complexion.

But since retinol regulates your skin cell turnover, it can also cause sun sensitivity, skin redness and irritation. You don’t need to avoid it completely but if you do suffer from sensitive skin during summer, be mindful of retinol’s effects and use it only in moderation.

Tilbury Tip: If you use retinol in your routine during the summer, it's especially important to use SPF daily!

Embrace the Powers of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a MAGIC ingredient to include in your skincare routine all year round, but it’s especially great to include in your summertime rituals. As well as helping to create a brighter-looking complexion, some studies have found it helps to promote natural collagen production.

Many of Charlotte’s AMAZING skincare products contain vitamin C including Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Multi Miracle Glow, Goddess Skin Clay Mask, Magic Eye Rescue and Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir. Your DREAMY summertime skin awaits!
