Summer is here and it’s time to get your glow on!

If you’re looking to brighten, protect and boost your natural luminosity, whilst defending against those nasty UV rays, then you’ve come to the right place. It’s as simple as this…you need three key types of ingredients: Vitamin C, hydrators and exfoliants. 

If this sounds like the routine for you, keep reading!

If a skincare regime isn’t in your daily routine, or you’re looking for that perfect summer routine, we’ve got you covered and have put together a simple guide to achieve your Natural Summer Glow. 

Step 1 

Product: Dermalogica BioLumin-C Serum 

How: Apply a full dropper and smooth over cleansed skin morning and night. 

What: The Dermalogica BioLumin-C Serum is a Vitamin C focussed product, designed to optimise the skin’s defences, which helps to brighten the skin, leaving your skin feeling brighter, tighter and smoother! This beautiful product contains a Vitamin C Complex; Lactic Acid, which provides skin exfoliation allowing the Vitamin C to be absorbed better; and lastly, Sophora Japonica Flower Extract and Chia Seed Oil, which are oxidants that protect and shield the skin from UK and pollutant damage.   


Step 2

Product: Dermalogica BioLumin-C Eye Serum 

How: Apply to the orbital bone and under eye each morning and night. 

What: This eye serum is a best selling Vitamin C formula designed to brighten, tighten and refresh! This is essential for the holiday season and summer months, where our weekends are full of Christmas parties, BBQ and late nights, which often take a toll on the delicate skin around our eyes. A formula filled with active ingredients, designed to work their magic, including Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Arjun Tree Extract, Chia Seed Oil, Mushroom Extracts, Micro Algae Extract and Cross-linked Papain. All of which come together to boost the skin’s resilience and reduce the appearance of fine lines. 


Step 3

Product: Dermalogica BioLumin-C Gel Moisturizer 

How: Use this morning and night in upward strokes, after cleansing and applying your serums. 

What: After applying your vitamin c and then this BioLumin-C Gel Moisturizer, sit back and watch your skin become hydrated and instantly brighter. This moisturizer goes onto the skin so smoothly, due to the gel-based formula, which means it doesn’t have that heavy-greasy feel. This best-selling moisturizer is filled with active ingredients, such as Verbascum Thapsus Extract, Squalane, five types of Hyaluronic Acid, and Phytic Acid & Pumpkin Enzymes, which all work beautifully together to leave your skin gently exfoliated, hydrated and luminous. 


Step 4

Product: Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30 

How: Last, but not least apply the Prisma Protect every morning, at least 30 minutes before any sun exposure. 

What: This SPF has had an upgrade…from Prisma Protect SPF15 to now the powerful Prisma Protect SPF30! The more SPF the better…it’s a yes from me! This is an SPF like no other, with a high-tech formula that protects against daylight, whilst also using daylight to boost the skin’s luminosity. The Intelligent Drone Technology is what delivers the light-activated Algae to target skin cells, which is what provides the skin with a natural glow. We can’t stress how much we love this product!
