Beauty Essentials for This Summer 2016



The spring weather so far is nothing to write home about.  An eternal optimist, I am already preparing myself for a gorgeous summer.  In fact, I have a few trips to warm destinations lined up that I look forward to sharing on the blog.  Do you also have your Summer beauty essentials ready in your beach bag?

Both La Roche Posay and Vichy have a broad range of sun beauty care to cater to different skin types.  I particularly like Vichy for the body. My routine is to put on a layer of 30+ to 50+ sunblock in the morning, and spray on a 50+ oil during the day. For the face, I find that La Roche-Posay applies better to my oily skin.  I recently also tested the sun care range from Shiseido and Rituals.  Both smell nice and leave a pleasant texture on the skin. I can’t wait to put them through the beach test.

And don’t forget that the sun can also damage your hair. I normally wash my hair every two day with a shampoo, conditioner, and a mask once a week.  After this, I like to use a nourishing spray on damp hair.  For this, I like the Goldwell After-Sun range. In the summer I also add oils to my hair ends if they become overly dry from exposure to sea water and the sun.

Finally, I enjoy splashing some fresh-scented products during the day in lieu of a perfume.  For example, Roger&Gallet has very nice oils and fragrant waters. Caudalie grape spray on the face feels so pleasant on a hot day. All this talk makes me even more impatient for summer!
