Your skin is an essential part of your daily health management. Unlike the internal parts of your body, skin is predominantly visible so you can’t really hide “bad skin”, but you can certainly avoid it. To assess your skin’s health, ask yourself: it soft or dry, smooth or rough, plump or shrivelled, supple or itchy, pimpled or clear? Our skin is constantly changing and so it is always important to also adjust the products you use to match your skin’s needs.
Hashtag Life has complied our favourite Summer 2021 products for different skin needs, and we made sure there is something for everyone.
Best For Dry Hands and Feet
The Couturiers Hand Cream by SEAMS helps lock in moisture and restore from within, so that hands will feel soft, supple and smooth, with a unique cotton fresh smell known as Amber Cocoon. The cream contains 9 powerful, natural ingredients that help mend, moisturise and soften very dry rough skin and condition nails so fast. Once applied, it is instantly absorbed into the hands, allowing you to get about your way without leaving greasy paw prints on everything you touch It is even great for using on those dry feet and heels too. It also contains a Biomimetic Lipid Complex known to mimic the lipids in your skin, so ensures the right moisture level is reached.
For added cuticle care, we recommend the SEAMS Hand and Nail Oil It is made with a special blend of natural oils, such as macadamia and rosehip oil, as well as and skin toning qualities and full of essential fatty acids. This special blend of ingredients absorb instantly to soften and condition chapped cuticles, strengthen nails and hydrate very dry patches of skin.

Almost nobody goes through life without a few scars. Plant-based skincare brand Nuture, provides you with the solution for managing scars and stretch marks.
The new Nourishing Skin Treatment Oil is your new go-to solution to look after your scars and stretchmarks. There are no questionable ingredients like mineral oil, artificial fragrances or colours, parabens or silicones in Nuture’s range.

We also love the new Facial Treatment Serum for post-blemish scars and hyperpigmentation, which is specifically created to treat the dark spots or scars caused by acne or blemish prone skin for a more even and brighter complexion. Nuture’s formula contains super-potent actives like Centella Extract, Arbutin and Bakuchiol (a gentle vegan alternative to Retinol) which all play a key role in helping achieve a flawless complexion.
