Summer is finally here, hooray! This means warm days and nights, lots of catch ups and plenty of beach time. It also means your skin is exposed to more sun and heat than ever, and can be left a little worse for wear if not looked after.
Here are my 5 favourite products for keeping skin healthy and glowing this silly season.
1. Glow like crazy
I love summer for the chance to wear my beloved t-shirts and summer dresses, and nothing gives me more confidence than having glowing skin on my arms and legs. I’m not a fan of tanning lotions and would rather simply accentuate the health of my skin with natural oils. My favourite way to do this is with our Ultimate Baby Oil which contains 100% organic ingredients. Calendula gives skin a touch of natural colour, and camellia oil provides a natural glow and long-lasting hydration. It also smells absolutely divine! This product is for babes of all ages.
2. Spritz it up
Our latest product, Ultimate Biome Spritz, is perfect for keeping the skin on your face healthy this summer. Vitamin C and green tea extract protect skin against free radical damage caused by the sun (and excessive Christmas spirit!). Probiotics help strengthen the skin’s protective barrier against pollutants and rose hydrosol reduces redness. I keep a Spritz on my desk and in my handbag so that I have no excuses.
3. Soothe with our SOS Balm
Occasionally I do get a little too much sun and it’s the Ultimate SOS Balm I reach for. It calms any burns and helps to repair damage straight away. Its intense hydration means that skin is less likely to blister and peel when sun is most definitely maxed out.
4. Give lip service
Our Ultimate Lips is so named for good reason. Its ultra-hydrating formula means that lips stay moist all day long and protected against cracks and cold sores. And if you’re after a touch of colour, you can’t go past our Rose Tinted Lips. No lumps or feathering, just pure natural colour. Perfect for those summer evening catch ups.
5. Repair skin at night
I LOVE applying our Repair Face Serum of an evening because its anti-inflammatory ingredients immediately soothe any inflammation I’ve got going on and keeps my pigmentation in check. It also provides the prefect base for make-up, and can be blended with your foundation for a lighter coverage.
Don’t forget to keep skin hydrated with plenty of water, and take advantage of the glorious summer fruits and veg on offer that will help skin glow from within.
Have a fabulous summer.

We are all told that we need to wash our face regularly to keep it healthy. But how do we know if we’re doing it right? Cleansing too frequently, with too harsh a cleanser and using the wrong methods, could be making skin issues worse.

I am often being asked for my naturopathic advice when it comes to supplements: what should I take to help my skin? Will supplements make any difference to my particular issue?
Supplements can definitely be helpful when you are not getting sufficient nutrients in your diet but I always recommend looking to food first as its often better absorbed and comes with many more beneficial nutrients.
Having said this I do take a handful of supplements to help with my skin and immune system on a daily basis and so I thought I’d share with you what I take and why.
