Glow Up: Achieving Radiant Summer Skin

We know, we know, it’s still spring - but as the sun gets stronger and summer quickly approaches, we're all excited to soak up the sun. But with the sunny days also come worries about keeping our skin safe from those UV rays and keeping it looking its best. Achieving that glowing summer skin with a mix of skincare, supplements, and good eats – all while making sure we're sun smart and avoiding sunbeds if we can.


Having a routine skincare regime is important, especially when the sun's out.

First things first, wash away all that sweat, dirt, and sunscreen buildup to keep breakouts at bay and your pores happy. Then, apply a lightweight moisturiser to keep your skin feeling fresh without weighing it down. Sunscreen is non-negotiable for keeping your skin protected - grab one with SPF 30 or higher to shield your skin from UVA and UVB rays.

For the rest of your body, let's talk exfoliation. Scrub away those dead skin cells with a gentle exfoliant to reveal your natural glow. For an extra boost, try some antioxidant-rich serums or a hit of vitamin C.


Supplements come in handy when needing that extra boost for the inside and out. They can give your skin the boost it needs by providing essential nutrients to keep it happy and healthy. Look out for supplements packed with goodness like collagen, which keeps your skin bouncy and hydrated, and Omega-3 fatty acids, which help strengthen your skin's defences and calm inflammation[1].

And most importantly - Vitamin C! With its antioxidant powers and brightening abilities, it's sure to give your complexion that extra oomph. Vitamin C also plays a vital role in collagen synthesis[2], with research suggesting that supplementation of this key nutrient can help to maintain skin optimal collagen density.


They say beauty starts from within, and that's certainly true when it comes to skin health. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats provides the nutrients your skin needs to thrive. Antioxidant-rich foods like berries, leafy greens, and nuts help combat oxidative stress and promote youthful, radiant skin.

Hydration is also crucial for maintaining skin elasticity and suppleness, so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.


Protecting your skin from the sun is crucial for maintaining its health and preventing premature aging. Apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours. Seek shade during peak sun hours, and wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses for added protection.

And for the most controversial - the dangers of sunbeds. While they may promise a quick tan before your holiday, they also expose your skin to harmful UV radiation. Opt for safer alternatives like self-tanners or bronzing moisturiser for a sun-kissed glow without the risks.

Taking care of your skin with the right skincare, supplements, good eats, and sun safety tricks is the key to keeping that radiant vibe going strong.
