Embrace Radiant Summer Skin with Leonie Botanics:

Your Guide to Glowing Skin This Season


As the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter, our skin requires a little extra care to maintain its natural glow. Summer is a time for outdoor adventures, beach trips, and sunny escapades, but it's also a season that can challenge our skin with increased exposure to UV rays, heat, and humidity. At Leonie Botanics, we're committed to helping you achieve radiant, healthy skin with our natural and nourishing products. Here's your guide to summer skincare, packed with tips and our favourite Leonie Botanics essentials.


Hydration: The Foundation of Summer Skincare

Summer heat can dehydrate your skin, leaving it dry and lackluster. Hydration is crucial for maintaining a supple and radiant complexion. Start by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Additionally, incorporate our Leonie Botanics Calma Calma Hydrating Mist into your daily routine. Formulated with orange blossom water, oat and green tea extract to protect and soothe the skin, this refreshing mist provides an instant boost of hydration, perfect for a mid-day pick-me-up.


Sun Protection: Your Skin's Best Friend

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is essential year-round, but it's especially important during the summer months when sun exposure is at its peak. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least a minumum SPF 30 every day, even on cloudy days.


Lighten Up Your Skincare Routine

In the summer, heavy creams and thick lotions can feel overwhelming on your skin. Opt for lighter, breathable formulas that won't clog your pores. Our Leonie Botanics Day Dreamer Balancing Face Oil is lightweight and packed with vitamins and minerals to keeping your skin moisturised, soft and supple with a healthy glow so is perfect for this season. 


Remove make-up and spf at night 

The combination of heat, humidity, SPF and makeup can lead to clogged pores, causing redness, irritation and uncomfortable breakouts. To combat this, incorporate our award winning Leonie Botanics Brightening Oil to Milk Enzyme Cleanser into your skincare routine. Formulated with papaya enzymes to breakdown dead skin cells, excess oil, daily dirt and pollution to help prevent clogged pores as well as improving skin tone to give a brighter more radiant complexion.


Soothe and Repair Sun-Kissed Skin

Even with our best efforts, sunburn can still happen. In such cases, it is essential to calm and heal the affected skin. Our award winning Leonie Botanics Sweet Dreams Rejuvenating Face Oil is a game-changer for sunburned skin. Enriched with soothing cucumber seed oil, sea buckthorn, and rosehip – all loaded with omega 3, 6, and 7, as well as vitamin E and beta-carotene – these ingredients possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. One of our customers even shared that she replaced her after-sun lotion with our face oil because it worked wonders.

If you have olive skin like me and are prone to hyperpigmentation or melasma after sun exposure, this face oil is perfect for you. Last year in Portugal, despite using SPF 50, I had a bad melasma flare-up due to the extreme heat(they had a heat wave of over 40’c). By consistently applying the Sweet Dreams face oil every night for two months, the melasma almost disappeared and by the 3rd month it had all gone. I'll be back in September, and if the same issue arises, I'll be sure to provide before and after photos this time.



Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the great outdoors and soak up the sun, but it's also a season that requires mindful skincare. With the right products and a few simple steps, you can keep your skin healthy, glowing, and protected all summer long. At Leonie Botanics, we're dedicated to providing you with natural, effective skincare for all your skincare needs. Explore our skincare collection today and embrace radiant, beautiful skin all season!
