There is something about summer that creates an almost palpable and infectious energy in the air. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we have longer stretches of the day and less things to do or maybe it’s something else. Regardless of the reason, one thing is or at least should be on the list of almost every person as we transition into blissful summer -the need for your summer glow to be turned up to the max. Your summer body may be important but dare we say, your summer glow and skin is importanter. And if there has ever been a time to get your skincare routine right, to top up your skincare products or to even go for broke and overhaul of your entire skincare collection, the time is now.

The task ahead might seem intimidating at first blush seeing how there’s a confusing abundance skincare and skincare options to choose from. This summer however,  it is imperative you get it right and to take off a little pressure from you, we have gone on ahead to curate a list of the top five skincare products you need to jumpstart your summer 2019 glow!

Arami Essentials’ Glow Scrub


Regular exfoliating of the skin to get rid of all the dead skin cells and impurities lodged in your skin and pores to reveal the beautiful fresh skin underneath is most definitely key not just for your 2019 Summer Glowgenda routine but your regular skin care routine.

Matte Apothecary’s Face and Body Radiance Oil


Summer, amongst many things, means parties and get-togethers with friends, acquaintances and maybe even co-workers where you probably want to stand out from the crowd. While we do believe your outfit should do most of the work, your skin should also stand out and be positively popping. If that positive radiant summer long glow is on your 2019 summer must-have list then Nigerian beauty brand Matte Apothecary has the answer for you. Their inexpensive body and face radiance oil is top of our wishlist and is at the top of most of your favorite style stars’ skincare shelves. Our favourite part about this product is its luxury feel and effect but drugstore pricetag.

YouSkin Vitamin C Facial Serum


To give yourself an edge over everyone else and to establish yourself in the figurative Summer Glow Hall of Fame, we highly suggest investing in a Vitamin C serum. Vitamin C serums simulate the production of collagen in your facial skin, help brighten up your skin as well as protect your skin from environmental factors that could derail your journey to that perfect summer glow. YouSkin Vitamin C serum is one which comes highly recommended, as it has pretty much everything you would want from a Vitamin C serum and you don’t have to break the bank to buy it.
