If you haven’t started preparing for summer yet, now is the time! I’ve gathered five of my summer beauty essentials, let me know what yours are too.
SPF is the most important hence I’ve put it at the top of list. In fact, you need SPF all year round and not just in the summer. Protecting your skin from the harmful rays reduces the risk of sun burn, skin cancer and premature ageing, so do make sure you slather your skin with plenty. I am currently using Tropic’s range of sun care and I love the Sun Stick which is a new addition to the collection. It’s an all-round, multi-purpose product with SPF 50 and the best thing about is, it’s pocket size, so it’s easy to just pop in your handbag and top up your sun protection whenever needed.
Sea Salt Hair Spray
Summer to me, hair wise, means, loose, tousled waves, finished with some texturizing spray and Shrub’s Sea Salt Texturising Spray is my current go-to. I usually spray this on to dry hair, layering it in and scrunching the hair at the same time. To get easy waves, I have a post here on how to achieve them overnight, it’s simple and easy and the sea salt spray works perfectly to keep the waves looking loose and beachy.
Skin can get super dehydrated during the summer, thanks to the heat. So, stocking up on face mists is a definite must. Evolve’s Daily Defence Moisture Mist is absolute joy to use, it’s feels super refreshing when applied, calms the skin and smells incredible. With the addition of Hyaluronic Acid, my skin feels so hydrated after a couple of sprays.
SPF Lip Balm
Keeping my lips nourished and protected has always been a thing for me, and nothing beats a slick of Carmex. The cherry flavoured one has SPF 15 which is perfect for summer and it smells so lovely too.
It’s so hard to pick a favourite lip shade for summer, but for me, bright colours always associate with the hotter season, so I’ve chosen MUA’s Satin Lipstick in Sweet Tooth as my summer shade.
