How To Make Your Skin The Least Of Your Worries This Summer

If skin concerns are casting a shadow over your joy for summer, at Veil we’ve got the perfect solution.

It’s finally May! After a winter that wasn’t short on snow, spring is certainly making amends with bouts of glorious summer weather.

Heatwaves and summer allow us to break free from the numerous layers we burrow under for warmth in cold weather. But for some, this comes with its own problems. If your delight is being dampened by concerns about exposing your skin, you’ve come to the right place.

Skin. We’re covered in the stuff. It makes sense, then, that it comes with its own complexities. Port wine stains, vitiligo, scars, eczema, acne, birthmarks, varicose veins, psoriasis, unwanted tattoos… these are just a few of the reasons why we might not want to show our skin to the world.

Veil’s origins

But you don’t need to worry about exposing your skin with your summer wardrobe. Veil was created by Thomas Blake to conceal post-operative scars, including those of WWII veterans. He produced the perfect formula in 1952. Our recipe hasn’t needed improving for over 65 years.

With a range of neutralising colours to create the perfect base, Veil also has a multitude of shades. This ensures that you can blend the high coverage formula seamlessly with your natural skin tone. If you want to know how to find your shade, we have the perfect resource for you right here.

Veil Cover Cream is light-weight and natural looking, even if you’re just using it as a regular foundation. Plus, it doesn’t look chalky or feel heavy on your skin. And that’s not all. It’s SPF 15-20, and the finishing powder ensures that it’s both long lasting and waterproof.

We’re here to help

Our site also has a number of resources on how to best apply Veil products depending on your skin concerns. Check out our tutorial page here. Plus, our team are just a message away on all our social media platforms. These include Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We’re more than happy to answer all questions and offer advice.

So hit that beach, enjoy the BBQ, celebrate your big day or revel at someone else’s wedding. The summer is for enjoying. Embrace the freedom to wear what you want now that your skin can be the last thing to hold you back.
