Summer Skincare & Sun Protection, Dos and Don’ts*

While it can be easy to complain about British summers, most years we do get some nice weather, and everyone flocks out to the beaches and parks to enjoy the sun and top up their tan. What’s really important is remembering that summer presents a new set of challenges for your skin and protecting yourself from the sun is vital. This year we also need to remember to keep to social distancing guidelines and protect ourselves and others from COVID-19. 

But back to skincare. To help me put this article together, I worked with Aesthetics Lab and their team of skincare specialists, who've kindly shared their top dos and don’ts to help keep your skin protected and looking its best this summer.

What've I Been Lovin' In Lockdown?*

WOW. Lockdown has been a mad one, hasn't it? And (contrary to everyone flocking to Bournemouth beach and attending mad raves round Formby) we are still in it.... the pandemic isn't over yet chums, Ms Rona is still wreaking havoc across the world and we need to band together to stop this bitch. ANYWAY. 

You'd think that during lockdown I'd have loadssss more time on me hands to get up to date with blog stuff, but I'll be honest huns - I've been busier than ever I reckon, working my (ever growing, and in a snack not squat way) arse off to keep things ticking over work-wise and not die of COVID-19. I'm dead behind on all kinds and AM SORRY, I'm a terrible human. But I'm here, I'm attempting to redeem my blogging sins and today, we're talking about some of the bits I've discovered / been loving during lockdown.
