With the heatwaves at the moment it genuinely feels like summer has arrived (even if it is August). If you are heading to the beach for the day or even just quickly popping to the shops, protection from UV is so important, and additionally so is skin hydration. Over the past couple of weeks I have been trying out Bioderma’s sun range (Photoderm) and also their amazing hydration range (Hydrabio).
Lets start of with Photoderm. This range is huge covering all your UV protection needs. I was testing out the Spray and the Tinted Aquafluid, which I first took with me to the beach for a test drive. I want to mention the Aquafluid to begin with as it is such an amazing concept, particularly for those of us who still like to wear makeup on holiday. Having a tinted product is an amazing alternative to wearing no makeup as it offers some level of coverage whilst delivering SPF 50+ to protect your face and neck. Mainly I love the matte effect this gave to my skin making it look flawless and remove that greasy hot day shine.
The spray product was also fab of course! I am very prone to burning and already got a bad burn at the start of the summer, so skin protection is so important to me. Having an SPF 50+ product that has no grease on the skin is amazing. No one wants sand sticking to their suncream covered arms at the beach right? This solves that problem completely!
Now it is time for hydration! Before heading down to breakfast on holiday or even after your long day in the summer sun, Hydrabio is the perfect range for moisturising your skin. The full range covers all stages of a skin routine with cleaning and skincare products. I have been trying the Moisturising concentrate which hydrates skin for 24 hours. It instantly makes the skin feel moisturised and after using it daily my skin feels brand new. Also like all Bioderma products I have tried, it makes an amazing makeup base.
The final product that I have been using is the Moistursing Mask which makes your skin super soft. You apply the mask all over your face and leave it on for 10 minutes before wiping it away with a cotton pad (I use a damp one). It adds such a hydrated and healthy glow.
All four of these products are essentials to add into your skincare routine this hot August to protect your skin for long term damage but also add instant glow and health to your skin.
