The clocks have jumped forward and the evenings are gradually getting lighter, which can only mean one thing: a long, hot summer is very much on its way. Think balmy evenings, bustling beer gardens and a constant, sun-induced good mood glow.

Of course we’re advocating for a proper routine year round, but it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. While most of us know to properly cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise, it’s the details that make the difference for truly glowing skin. Facial massage is an easy, holistic way of stimulating blood flow and creating more elasticity and suppleness, while layering serums and using chemical exfoliants are a surefire route to a shiny complexion.

The big-hitters are: hyaluronic acid serum, which plumps up skin and minimises fine lines by helping the skin retain moisture; vitamin C, which helps improve skin tone and boost cell repair; and AHAs such as lactic and glycolic acid — which encourage cell regeneration by removing the top layer of skin.

Make sure to use your acids and vitamin C on alternate days to minimise irritation

Maintain a healthy lifestyle

It seems like a no-brainer that a good diet, lots of sleep and exercise will help us feel and look good, but it’s important to understand why and how to maximise the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Consuming fats like avocados and nuts can help achieve glowing skin and shiny hair, antioxidant-rich foods like berries and cruciferous vegetables help reduce our risk of disease and aid the body’s natural functions, while beta-carotenes (found in citrus fruits and green vegetables) convert into vitamin A in the body and are essential for eye health, the immune system and radiant skin.

Exercising regularly is great for cardiovascular health, but all that blood pumping is also great for our skin, thanks to the extra influx of oxygen and nutrients through our skin. And while it can feel like a daily challenge to get enough zzz’s, prioritising sleep allows our skin to make more collagen and therefore reduces signs of ageing.

Get the floss

The one piece of expert advice most of us probably ignore? Flossing. But thanks to BIOMED’s Coconut & Mango recycled dental floss, £3.99, we can now collectively agree to start doing it on the reg, OK? Not only does it remove plaque, it’s also gentle on gums and helps protect against tooth decay. Clinically-proven, it stretches and expands to reach more surface area between teeth, too. Follow up with Multiactive Natural Whitening Mouthwash, £3.99, to freshen your mouth while whitening and strengthening tooth enamel. Start now and those summer selfies – complete with cheesy grin – won’t ever look better.

Give your hair some TLC

To achieve that elusive ‘glass’ hair effect, the right products are a must. Hair serum and heat protectant will shield your hair from damage and frizz and leave locks smooth and shiny during heat styling, while hair oil will hydrate and nourish strands; preventing breakage and resulting in your glossiest hair ever.

Regular hair masks are probably something you do in high summer when the ends feel dry, but if you want strands so shiny they reflect the sun, we recommend a deep conditioner at least once a week. Not only will it help your locks to stay hydrated, but it’ll also help add strength and repair damage – plus, hair that’s in good condition is much more likely to grow quickly, too.
