Summer skincare tips

Most of us love a sun holiday but the sun, salt from the beach, chlorine from the pool or the heat can generate impurities in the skin.

To alleviate the appearance of these imperfections, Nimue has some tips to clean and care for your skin while you’re on holidays.

As the layers of skin become drier in summer, it is important to remove dead skin cells with a good exfoliating treatment to help skin renew and look its best.

Nimue Exfoliating Enzyme (RRP 40ml, €49) is a gentle and kind solution for your skin. This enzymatic exfoliator is non-irritating and non-abrasive, gently removing dead skin cells and promoting cell renewal. Suitable for use 2-3 times per week.

Nimue Moisturiser Lite (RRP 50ml, €59) is perfectly suitable for day and night, with multi-functional properties to improve skin texture, hydrate the skin and balance oil production. If you decide to wear make-up, make sure you clean off any remaining product at the end of the day with a refreshing cleanser or similar product. This allows your skin to breathe and rest overnight, so less impurities will appear on your face.

Nimule Y:Skin Facial Wash (RRP 200ml, €40) is a soap-free gel cleanser that gently exfoliates the skin to remove impurities, for a fresh, clear and smooth skin.

Or the Nimue Cleansing Gel (RRP 140ml, €43) is soap-free, 2-in-1 gel skin cleanser that gently removes makeup while providing light exfoliation to cleanse pores and clear away dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, youthful, and radiant skin underneath.

It is also very important to protect your skin from UVA and UV rays. Nimue has a range of specialised sun protection products that offer broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection in SPF 40 and SPF 50.

The Sun-C Environmental Shield SPF 50 (RRP 50ml, €61; 20ml, €31) offers anti-ageing benefits and protection against UVA, UVB, infra-red and blue light (HEV) rays. This light, non-oily and mattifying SPF also protects against the visible signs of ageing caused by pollution and other environmental factors. Use in the morning daily. Apply an even layer to the face, neck and décolleté over Nimue moisturiser, half an hour before sun exposure. Repeat application every 2-3 hours or after exercise, perspiration, or water activities, and avoid excessive sun exposure.
