As the weather starts to warm up, I like to pay special attention to my skin to keep it looking glowy. Not only does the sun, tan the skin but it causes the pores to get clogged due to excessive sweating coupled with grime and dust, so I like to switch up my routine and opt for lighter products like serums and exfoliating cleansers.

The first step in achieving glowing summer skin is proper exfoliation. To exfoliate my face, I opt for products that contain glycolic acid as it helps to gently buff away dead skin cells. At the moment I am using the PIXI Glow Tonic which I absolutely adore and to exfoliate my body, I put a handful of body scrub onto a body brush and target areas of my body that are driest. 

Makeup wise, I like to opt for products that add luminosity to the skin. My favourite summer foundation is the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. As the name suggests, it makes the skin appear more luminous and provides a light, weightless coverage. Brightening concealers are also a must during the summer months, I recently bought the Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser Eye Concealer after hearing so many great reviews, its high coverage so is perfect for covering up dark circles and brightening the undereye. To finish off a glowy makeup look, I use a highlight to add that extra glow to the apples of my cheeks, the tip of my nose and the brow bone. If I want to look like a glazed doughnut theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer is my go-to. It's marketed as a bronzer but it works really well as a highlight for my deep skin tone as it contains small bits of coppery gold shimmer which pop when the sun reflects on the applied area. 

How do you achieve glowy summer skin?
