This is my introductory post so I’ll keep it short. Its summer time!!!!!! Well summer is almost over but still we have a couple of weeks left so this post is relevant. I must say this is my least favourite season because the heat and I are not friends but schools out so I make the most of it.
This post will focus on summer skin care. Here are some essentials that are a must during the summer.
1. Toner: This is a great step after your cleansing routine and I can honestly swear by toners especially when my skin dries up during summer. I use toners twice a day. Two of my favourites are the Sephora Instant Refreshing toner and the Garnier refreshing toner (I have combination oily skin).
2. Moisturizer: Even though the sun feels like a 100 degrees and you’ll sweat it off, it’s great to always keep your skin hydrated.
3. Tinted lip balm: I tend to not wear lipstick on most summer days so a tinted lip balm is a great option to add some colour to your lips. I loovee the Maybelline Baby lips in Cherry Me.
4. Sunscreen: This is non-negotiable!!!!! We all come in various beautiful different skin tones but some might think those with darker skin tones don’t get sun burns (I was one of those people thinking my melanin will protect me from 36°C sun rays) oh boy was I wrong, I was in Lisbon recently on holiday and was on the beach and walking and after 2 hours in the sun on one occasion I was burnt for real. it was hilarious and its taught me not to leave the house without sunscreen ever. I recommend SPF 50 and above. I use this one from Neutrogena.
Fierce Sunglasses: For obvious reasons, and as I look dead when I don’t wear makeup I needed something to make me look alive.
Lots of love.
P.S there will be a makeup summer essentials coming up.
