So how can you rock the minimal makeup look during summer months? The answer is simpler than you might think - by committing to a solid skincare routine.
Summer calls for a change in your skincare routine. It's all about lightweight, hydrating products that protect, and Proto-col's skincare collection offers an array of options to support you on this journey.
A key first step in any skincare regime is cleansing. It's essential when preparing our skin and creating an optimal base for absorbing the goodness out of the product with follow in the routine. This is where our Collagen Cleaning Milk steps in, which is gentle yet effective and ideal for the summer months. It sweeps away makeup, dirt and impurities whilst ensuring the skin's natural oils remain undisturbed, creating the perfect balance...and the result? Beautifully cleansed skin that is in perfect equilibrium, not too dry, not too oily.
Moving onto the next step...Exfoliation. This step is often underestimated but holds great importance during the warmer weather. By removing dead skin cells, exfoliation reveals the fresh and glowing skin which lies underneath. Our Microdermabrasion is gentle enough to avoid irritation, yet effective enough to deliver results, it can be incorporated into your routine once or twice a week.
Hydration is the cornerstone of any skincare routine and it becomes more vital in the summer months when heat and the sun can take a toll on your skin. Fear our Hydrating Toning Mist and Moisturising Facial Gel have you covered. These light, hydrating products work in harmony to replenish your skins moisture levels without leaving it feeling greasy or overwhelmed.

Always Remember SPF
Last but definitely not least, sunscreen. An absolute must-have, as it protects your skin from harmful UV rays.
