The best pre-holiday skincare advice for a gorgeous glow
Summer is finally here, which can only mean one thing – it’s holiday time! Whether you’re heading down to the Cornish coast for a utterly relaxing break or jetting off for a sun-soaked stay abroad, you’re going to want to look your best for those all-important holiday photos. We share our top tips for looking gorgeously glowing for your summer break.
Up the H2O
The most simple change you can implement to really make a difference to your skin is upping your water intake. Water helps to flush out any toxins and keeps the surface of the skin plump and healthy. Carrying around a water bottle at all times is a good way to stay hydrated and you can even use apps like Daily Water and Hydro Coach to remind you to drink more!
Stick to your routine
Having a consistent skincare routine is one of the staples for glowing skin. As tempting as it can be to flop into bed after a night out and only manage to push a face wipe around, following a step-by-step skincare routine every single day and every single night is the best thing you can do for your complexion.

Add in a night oil
If your skin is feeling particularly dry or looking lacklustre, it might be a good idea to invest in a good night oil. At night your skin is repairing so by applying an ultra-nourishing product you are giving it the best chance to fully recharge and rejuvenate. Just a few drops mixed with your normal nightly moisturiser and your skin will be very grateful.
As well as helping your body look its best for your bikini-clad days in the sun, munching on plenty of fruits and vegetables will also contribute to the health of your skin. Snack on foods that are rich in vitamins to give your complexion a boost and don’t neglect your protein intake, as this is key for collagen production.
Go make-up free
We’re not saying you have to go barefaced all day everyday, however taking your make-up off for the gym, so your pores don’t get blocked, has amazing benefits for your skin. Also, if you can manage a make-up free day, perhaps when you’re chilling at home on a Sunday, then this will allow your skin time to breathe and recover.

Treat yourself to a facial
Getting a professional facial will work wonders for your skin, it’s a deep level clean that really revives the skin’s surface. But, just be mindful of the date in which you book in, as directly after your treatment any impurities (e.g spots!) may come to the surface. Book in a week before you jet off to make sure your skin is photo-flawless by the time you touch down.
