As the sun graces us with its presence and summer unfolds, it's time to prepare for a season of outdoor enjoyment and relaxation.
However, along with the sunny delights, summer presents unique challenges for our skin and hair.
“Exposure to the sun's UV rays can lead to sunburn and hyperpigmentation, while heat and humidity may cause dehydration and acne breakouts. Hair can become dry, frizzy, and prone to colour fading due to sun and humidity. Therefore, it's crucial to protect your skin and hair during the summer, including using sunscreen, staying hydrated, and following a proper skincare and haircare routine,” says lifestyle and relationship expert Greyson Piper from Pick Up Line.
But fret not! This guide will help you navigate the summer season with a simple yet effective skincare and haircare routine.

Start your morning and evening routine with a gentle cleanser to remove sweat, dirt, and impurities. Look for a pH-balanced cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils.
Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, allowing the skin to breathe and absorb products better. Brooklan Tree’s Hibiscus exfoliant is ideal for all skin types, leaving the skin renewed and refreshed.
Use a lightweight, hydrating like Brooklan Tree’s Hyaluronic Hydra Boost + Kakadu Plum to rehydrate your skin, brighten your complexion, and fight free radicals.
This step can also address specific skin concerns like hyperpigmentation or acne.
Opt for a lightweight, natural moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated without feeling heavy.
Sunscreen is crucial during the summer months. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 (higher if you spend extended time outdoors). Reapply every two hours, especially if you're swimming or sweating.
Use a refreshing facial mist to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Alternatively, you can include it as a toner in your regular cleansing routine.
In the evening, follow the same steps but skip the sunscreen. Instead, you can use a thicker night cream or sleeping mask to provide extra hydration and repair your skin overnight.
Understand your hair type (e.g., straight, curly, wavy, coarse, fine) and specific concerns (e.g., dryness, frizz, dandruff, oily scalp) to choose products and treatments tailored to your hair's unique requirements.
How often you should wash your hair depends on your hair type and lifestyle. While some people may need to wash daily, others can go several days between washes.
Use a mild natural shampoo occasionally to remove product buildup and impurities caused by sweat and sunscreen.
Use a hydrating conditioner to moisturise your hair and repair any damage caused by the sun and outdoor activities. Consider using a deep conditioning treatment once a week for added hydration.
Consider using specialised treatments like leave-in conditioners, serums, or hair oils, depending on your hair concerns. These can provide extra moisture, protect against heat damage, or address specific issues such as frizz or split ends.
After spending time in the sun or water, rinse your hair thoroughly to remove salt, chlorine, and sweat. Apply a leave-in conditioner or hydrating serum to replenish lost moisture.
In the scorching heat of summer, taking care of your skin and hair is not just about looking good—it's about ensuring they stay healthy and radiant. Remember, it's not just about following these steps; consistency is key.
