Tropic Skincare: Simplifying Your Summer Glow-Up

Ah, the summertime. The flowers are in full bloom, the skies are a brilliant blue, and to match the beauty of planet Earth, we have our staple summer glow-up. We’re referring to that sun-kissed, dewy complexion, of course. However, while our blissful, bright surroundings can be left to the wonders of nature, our skin’s radiance requires some effort on our behalf. In fact, it can actually be rather tricky to seamlessly pull off that lit-from-within, fresh-from-holidays look. To start, there’s the task of avoiding sun damage, but soaking in as much vitamin D as possible. Next, we have the struggle of keeping the skin sufficiently moisturised despite the dry, humid conditions. Finally, there is that wretched, clammy shine that clings to your complexion once you’ve stepped into the sticky heat of the sun. All in all, while a glow-up tends to be synonymous with summer, it’s easier said than done.

Luckily for us, Tropic Skincare have just what we need to simplify the process. 

For the Dewy, Hydrated Base 

At this stage, we’re all familiar with Hyaluronic Acid in skincare. It’s one of the staple ingredients we look for when searching for a product that will infuse our skin with much-needed moisture. Tropic Skincare’s Rainforest Dew Hydration Serum is overflowing with this super ingredient, as well as lush botanical extracts and reparative plant peptides from the world’s tropical rainforests.

The result?

After dabbing a few drops in, the skin feels instantly cooled and supple, with the potent formula working in a flash to hydrate those pesky dry spots. That’s one nil to us, air con.

For the Lit-from-Within Glow 

Throughout life, we often come across those who are blessed with radiant skin. It could be good genes, it could be a healthy lifestyle, or, it could simply be a revolutionary vitamin C product on their bathroom shelf. If your skin is suffering from that dull, grey hue, the Glow Berry Brightening Serum will take you from run-down to recharged, just in time for the summer.

The formula is bursting with vitamin C as well as kangaroo paw flower extract to target signs of ageing too- a true brightening, tightening hero.

For the Balanced Complexion 

As we approach the warmer months, it’s time to part ways with the heavy, thick creams that helped us through the harsh wintry ones. It’s now time to opt for cool, lightweight formulas that sweep across the skin. The Fresh Waves Balancing Moisturiser does exactly this, with 100% naturally derived ingredients that work to protect and nourish the skin’s microbiome, but with a cream-gel texture that instantly absorbs and soothes the skin. Plus, with no silicones in sight, it gives a seamless shine-free finish, the perfect base for any makeup. 

For the Sunkissed Finish 

For those who want a deeper glow, the Sun Drops Gradual Tanning Serum will bring you that post-holiday bronze straight from the bottle. For those who fear the horror stories of awakening to a fluorescent-orange skin tone, fear not. These tanning drops are made with natural tanning agents that mimic the colour of your skin’s own melanin to create an even, natural-looking glow. What’s more, while some face tans tend to dry out the skin, this one is infused with coconut water and aloe vera juice to ensure a supple, hydrated finish.

Simply add a few drops to your moisturiser and massage it all in. Our tip? Don’t forget to massage down your neck and décolletage, and don’t forget to wash your hands when you’re finished! 

For the Protection 

Of course, we know that SPF is a must. However, on a hot, humid day, the typical greasy formula is the last thing you want to coat over your skin. Enter: Sun Day Facial UV Defense. The lightweight, airy formula sinks in immediately with zero traces of that sticky residue we’re all familiar with. It’s blended with hyaluronic acid, tropical banana flower extract and prebiotics to hydrate, calm, and deeply nourish your skin while it’s protecting it. With the subtle scent of berries, this product is a dream to glide onto the skin as a final step in your routine. 

In conclusion, your summer glow-up doesn’t have to be a grand, complicated process. In fact, it can be sourced all in one shop! Tropic Skincare have all angles covered so you can get that enviable glow-up in time for summer and beyond.
