Is your skin in need of some summer hydration? Here are the products that will help

As we transition into warmer weather, your skin might be crying out for a little extra hydration. Here are the key steps you need to be taking to perfect your new season skincare routine…

Between excessive exposure to sun rays and harsh winds in equal measure, our skin may be feeling a little dried out and in need of some extra TLC. The start of a new season provides the perfect opportunity to reassess your routine and make some product swaps that will level up your skincare game.

Whether you’re starting from scratch or adding in some new essentials, Pestle & Mortar’s best-selling range of skincare products combines high-performance active ingredients with nourishing natural extracts to create skincare products that are simple and effective. Female-founded and guaranteed Irish, this award-winning brand began in 2014 in County Kildare and has been adored for its less-is-more approach ever since.

Pestle & Mortar

With a diverse range of meticulously crafted skincare products suitable for all skin types – from daily cleansing systems and nourishing moisturisers to high-performance acid toners and targeted skin serums – the brand simplifies complicated skincare routines so that everyone can achieve beautiful skin.

Pestle & Mortar products are inspired by founder Sonia Deasy’s heritage in Indian natural healing and powered by science, and will fast become a hero product in your own skincare regime. So, if you want to give your skin a post-summer revitalisation, here are some of the products to pick up…

Hydrate Lightweight Moisturiser

Pestle & Mortar

This ultra-lightweight moisturiser has been formulated with peptide technology and squalane to soften, firm, and hydrate the skin without clogging pores. It’s packaged in an airless pump to ensure that it stays fresh and active. Blended with tri- and tetra-peptide technology and vegan squalane, this highly absorbent formulation softens, firms, and hydrates the skin without build-up.

Pure Hyaluronic Serum

This serum is highly absorbent and fragrance-free, formulated with hyaluronic acid across multiple molecular weights to instantly plump up the skin, lock in moisture, and reveal a smooth and hydrated complexion. It’s a 98% natural formulation that blends healing natural extracts with multiple molecular weight hyaluronic acid. It’s formulated with plant-based supporting ingredients so that it glides onto the skin and sinks straight in, without leaving a sticky or tacky residue.

Vitamin C 2-Phase Serum

This serum is an intense blend of vitamin C and natural extracts that creates dramatically brighter-looking, firmer skin and visibly smooths the complexion. Made with three types of high-performance vitamin C, this serum allows the skin to get superior vitamin C benefits without irritation. Innovative two-phase pump technology mixes a vitamin C-rich water phase with a super lightweight oil phase to deliver one perfect dose of serum.

Superstar Retinoid Night Oil

Pestle & Mortar

This luxurious retinoid night oil is blended with fast-acting retinol in a base of cold-pressed, organic and steam-distilled oils. It diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while nourishing and hydrating the skin. It’s a luxurious formulation that combines fast-acting and absorbent retinoids so that the actives are effective at a low concentration, and the risk of irritation is eliminated without compromising the benefits. Supported by a base of cold-pressed grape seed oil, Superstar feels light and nourishing on the skin.

Last but not least: Double cleansing

If you haven’t started double cleansing yet, let this be the season you start because we can guarantee you won’t look back. Start off with the ERASE Balm Cleanser to melt away any make-up or remnants of the day and hydrate the skin, and then go in with the 100% natural, non-foaming RENEW Gel Cleanser that serves to improve skin tone, tighten pores, and leave skin hydrated and illuminated.

Pestle & Mortar is available in stores nationwide and can be bought online and in their flagship store in Kildare Village.
