Grooming tips for summer
- Opt for a clean, neutral roll-on deodorant to stay feeling fresh and odour-free throughout the day. Deodorants with natural ingredients, free of aluminium and parabens are best for your skin, clothes, and the environment.
- Protect against dehydration and premature ageing with a lightweight daily moisturizer. Look for one that’s oil-free with SPF, and apply after cleansing for all-day comfort.
- Avoid foods (and drinks) that are high in sugar to ensure your skin stays looking healthy and bright. This goes double during the indulgent holiday season.
- Switch up your signature scent to something more appropriate for the season; woody, spicy scents for winter and lighter, citrusy notes for summer.
