Six Summer Skin Essentials To Invest In

6 Summer Skincare Essentials 2023 | Space NK
The warmer days are here so it’s time to hit the reset button and prep your skincare routine for the summer. Last year was a record breaking and was one of the UK’s hottest and driest summers. Not only did our lawns and plants suffer, but some of us also experienced oily, sweaty skin and clogged pores. This year we intend to be ready for all temperatures.

The key to healthy summer skin is putting the emphasis on light hydration, SPF protection and regular exfoliation to keep our pores clear and our skin barrier strong. We like to stick to minimal skincare routine throughout the summer and let our skin breathe. Read on for our summer skincare must-haves.

The Ultimate Summer Skincare Routine



The Deep Cleanse, N/A

Step 1: Cleanse
Give your pores a deep clear with this gentle yet effective Tatcha cleanser. The formula exfoliates and leaves skin feeling soft and supple, without stripping it from its natural oils. It’s the perfect cleanser for summer and will leave your skin feeling fresh in the morning and the evening, creating a clean slate for the rest of your skincare routine.



Hydrating Serum, £13.00

Step 2: Hydrate
Lock in moisture with this lightweight, ultra hydrating serum from Byoma. Formulated with the brand’s signature Tri-Ceramide complex, squalane and glycerin, this serum works hard to top up hydration levels and strengthen your skin barrier. It’s quickly become a staple for us!


Rose Inc

Radiant Reveal Brightening Serum, £25.00

Step 3: Brighten
Rose Inc’s Radiant Reveal Brightening Serum is a must-have if you’re looking to dial up your glow this summer. The squalane-based formula works to hydrate and plump the skin, while the vitamin C brightens and helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation overtime. It’s a great one to have in your morning and evening skincare arsenal.


The Ordinary

Natural Moisturizing Factors + Beta Glucan, £12.00

Step 4: Moisturise
In the summer, we like to switch to a lighter moisturiser like the new The Ordinary Moisturizing Factors + Beta Glucan. The lightweight jelly texture melts into the skin and feels like a fresh glass of water, leaving your skin feeling nice and hydrated without any greasiness. If your skin is on the drier side, we recommend trying Alpyn Beauty Melt Moisturizer, £57.00.


Hello Sunday

The One That's A Serum - Face Drops: SPF 50, £23.00

Step 5: Protect
SPF should never be skipped, but it’s even more important in the summer to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. To keep it light, we like to opt for a serum consistency that blends in seamlessly and has no risk of leaving a white cast. We love this one from Hello Sunday as it provides high factor protection, the texture is super light and it sits perfectly under makeup.



Phyto-Glow Lip Balm, £12.00

Step 6: Finishing Touch
Bring moisture and colour to your pout with the new, ultra nourishing lip balms from Naturium. The shea and plant squalane formula is extremely hydrating and leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth all day. It’s the perfect lip balm to keep in your bag at all times to give your lips moisture, shine and colour in an instant.
