We’ve answered your beauty questions to guarantee you get great skin no matter how hot and stressed you feel!
Q: Sun creams and the heat leave my skin oily and clogged what can I use?
A: Blocked pores cause your skin to overcompensate and produce more oil so make sure you exfoliate twice a week to draw out excess oil
Q: My fine hair gets dry and brittle in the summer what can I use?
A: After conditioning your hair rinse with cold water and then finish off your blow-dry with a blast of the cool button – both will help leave hair extra glossy
Q: My eyes are always sore in the summer, what can I do?
A: If you suffer from sore eyes leave some eye make-up remover pads in the fridge and place them over irritated eyes to refresh. Works every time!
Q: I get more breakouts in the heat, are there any new products to help?
A: When an impromptu spot strikes, grab an ice cube, dip it in vodka and hold it against the spot! The cold stops the swelling and the alcohol dries it out.
Q: Why does my skin always look tired when I’m hot and bothered?
A: Try swapping your matt foundation and heavy powders that can sit in pores and fine lines for a cover-up that focuses on radiance and luminosity.
Q: In the heat my lips get dry and cracked, how can I remove the dry skin?
A: Chapped lips are a common side effect of warm weather so keep yours soft by using a lip scrub and baby toothbrush to buff away any flakiness.
Q: My skin gets blotchy in the heat, what can I use?
A: Flushing can cause dilated capillaries so stop redness by holding an ice-cold flannel against your neck to cool the blood that’s flowing towards your face.
Q: Help! No matter what I do my cheeks are always dry and flaky!
A: Avoid soapy cleansers in the summer if you feel your skin gets extra dry and sensitive in the heat. The lathering ingredients can dry skin out.
