Q. I am going to Spain for my summer holiday and would like to take some kind of cover up for my skin to hide blemishes but I always find my foundation looks greasy and feels heavy. Is there an alternative I could use?
A. Foundation can tend to feel heavy and greasy in the heat and this is primarily because they are designed to cloak imperfections and so sit like a veil on the surface of the skin.
In heat when we perspire foundations can tend to slide off and constant touching of the face can also make the product appear blotchy.
Tinted moisturiser and tinted sun creams are the ideal solution.
Clarins Hydra Quench Tinted Moisturiser (£30) is available in six shades and boasts an SPF15. Promising soft, supple and smooth skin the new and improved formula is one of the hardest working moisturisers in the market.
As well as offering hydration to sun-parched skins, the cream gives a hint of colour to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone while the SPF offers added sun protection.
Guinot have also launched two amazing products to protect and enhance the skin while you enjoy the sun.
Summer 2014 saw the introduction of Brightening UV Shield, an SPF 50 face cream which instantly protects the face from UVA and UVB rays while also visibly brightening and evening the complexion.
Unifying pigments in the cream allow it to transform to the exact skin tone of the user for flawless coverage and a seamless finish.
And this month sees the launch of Guinot’s revolutionary Crème Hydra Finish facial moisturiser with complexion enhancers and an SPF15.
This lilac-tinted cream provides long lasting hydration, illuminates and evens skin tone and protects with an SPF15.
This light, fresh smelling lotion is perfect in hot climates, hydrating and protecting while providing a light coverage to disguise blemishes with a universal tint.
Any of these products would be the ideal solution to your summer sun skin dilemma.
