How to build your perfect skincare routine

The sun is shining and the temperature is rising, which means it’s time to switch up your usual skincare routine for something a bit lighter, more refreshing and protective. La Roche-Posay and CeraVe have you, and your face, covered

There’s no better way to start your day than with a good cleanse to wake you up and get your skin feeling refreshed. The CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is enriched with three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid, which help protect the skin’s barrier as you wash, and retain the skin’s natural moisture. Simply massage into wet skin and wipe off with a flannel or muslin.

Next, it’s serum time. All skin types can become parched, so you need a serum that will deliver intense hydration. Step forward, La Roche-Posay HyaluB5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which is light, soothing and enriched with hyaluronic acid (the skin moisture-maker) and vitamin B5. This serum hydrates and leaves skin looking plump.

If you have an oily combination complexion, or just prefer a lighter consistency moisturiser, then La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Aquagel SPF30 (50ml) – a serious multi-tasker – is for you. The gel-like formula sinks in instantly, leaving skin feeling refreshed. As well as providing SPF30, it helps protect skin from pollutants. Apply all over your face, taking any excess product onto the back of your neck, tops of ears and décolleté.

Because you can never have too much skin protection, especially during the summer, the final step in your routine is NEW La Roche-Posay Anthelios Age Correct SPF50+. This clever sunscreen not only instantly protects skin from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays, but it contains active ingredients, including niacinamide, and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and existing dark spots from previous sun damage. The formula, enriched with hyaluronic acid, plumps the skin with moisture. And if that isn’t enough, it has a gorgeous silky texture that sinks in – with no sticky or oily residue feeling.

Of course, a great skincare routine doesn’t finish at your neck. You need to carry on the good work all the way down to your toes. And if the skin on your body is dry in regular weather, sunny and hot days can make it even more dehydrated, so you need a moisturiser that packs a major hydration punch. The CeraVe Moisturising Cream is a cult buy and for good reason. It features clever, patented elements that continually release hydrating ingredients over a 24-hour period. It also contains the brand’s three iconic ceramides, which are essential for supporting the skin barrier and helping it retain moisture.
