Now that summer has FINALLY arrived, it’s become time for me to switch over my skin care routine. During winter I am always battling with dry skin, however in summer it’s time to protect and hydrate.
As you may (or may not) know, I have very fair skin, therefore without wearing sun cream during summer I turn into a flamingo! My morning skin care routine during summer begins with applying this SPF 30 Soltan Once face sun cream.
Tip: Whenever you’re purchasing a sun cream look out for the UVA star rating on the bottle – rated from 0-5 – with 5 stars of course being the best protection. As you can see, on this bottle next to the purple box, this Soltan cream is rates 5 stars.
A moisturiser that I have been loving recently is this Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser from The Body Shop. With vitamin C, it awakens and clarifies your complexion, revealing a natural healthy looking glow. It has a lightweight gel formula which absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t leave your face feeling heavy and skicky! Perfect for summer. (ps it also smells of oranges!)
I always carry round a lip balm with me during winter when my lips start feeling dry however when it comes to summer I often neglect my lip care, recently I have been using this Carmex lip balm which has SPF 15 to help protect and hydrate my lips.
After a long day in the sun you’re probably eager to get some sleep but trust me, your skin is probably feeling more exhausted than you are right now. Don’t forget to moisturise your face at night to give your skin the opportunity to relax and hydrate.
This L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Facial Oil is a luxurious blend of 8 essential oils: Lavender, Marjoram, Rosemary, Geranium, Rose, Roman Chamomille, Orange Peel and Lavandin. Providing your skin with moisture and radiance, the formula feels lightweight and non-greasy.
