Sorry about lack of posts. The last one was about Ramadan, and during this time muslims are busy fasting & praying. Not to mention busy preparing food! Lol 😄 But i'm back now and have an exciting post to share with you all!
Today's post is about my Summer skincare routine! The weather is convinient for my post and all the products related are beneficial to everyone. So without further ado, i will start now! 😄
In the summertime, our bodies lose alot of moisture, which is why we should keep it well moisturised and hydrated. Following a good regime can help keep our skin & bodies looking it's best. But often we need help and guidance as to what is compatible with our skin and what can do more harm than good. So i'm here to help you and hope to give you some advice so that maybe i might set a trend somewhere or just help you make a good choice 😂
As you can see in the photo there are many products that i like to use particularly in the summertime as it helps keep my skin comfortable. Maybe you own some of these products, or are thinking of using? Either way sometimes suggestions of others can make us aware what may or may not be good for us.
• Maybelline 24 hour make up setting spray.
• Banana Boat Aloe Vera Gel.
• Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb moisturising cream.
For those make up lovers, keeping your make up on all day especially in the summer can sometimes be a struggle! But a good make up setting spray with great staying power is just what you need!
Aloe Vera Gel is a god send product especially in summers! We tend to over stay in the sun and forget the dangers of the sun rays so don't forget that sun protection is most important when enjoying lovely weather. Aloe vera is a natural product that has many beneficial properties, so applying it to your skin will do wonders!
When it comes to moisturising our face, i like to use one with some SPF (sun protection factor) in it. The sunny weather is enjoyable but we mustn't forget to take care of our skin. Moisturisers that already contain spfs are worth it and more easier to apply rather than to apply sunscreen first then a good moisturiser. So do yourself a favour, and save your skin and the hassle! 😄
• L'Oreal Skin Perfection Soothing Gel-Cream Wash.
• Sunny Day Thermal Spray Mist.
• Lacura Spray on Moisturiser.
In the summertime, I find my skin is more dry than in winter. So I take care to wash my face with a good moisturising face wash. This L'Oreal soothing gel cream wash is rich in moisturisers. It doesn't dry my skin out, caring for it and soothing at the same time. So a good face wash like this would be good for the summer.
Keeping hydrated in the heat can often be tough. But keeping a can of Thermal Spray mist handy needn't be a problem anymore! Just spray and go! 😄
In the summer, oils and creams sometimes feel heavy and sticky on our skin. Using a light moisturiser like Lacura Spray On moisturiser will help moisturise your skin without the heavy or sticky feeling. I love this because it smells so delicious like chocolate! 🍫
• Hawaiian Tropic Protective Sun Lotion 30spf
• L'Oreal Studio Pro Lock it Hair spray.
• Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun lotion.
The sun can have relaxing yet stressful properties on our skin. Making sure we're protected in the sun should be a top priority. Before venturing out in the sun, make sure you apply a good high factor sun lotion. This is to ensure your skins safety. The higher the factor number the more protection you will acquire. Don't forget to reapply after water exposure or if you want to top up on application.
Our hair can get dry or frizzy in the heat. I like to use a good hair spray to hold my hairstyle in place. This helps me to keep in form 🤗
Aswell as the importance of using a good sun lotion, sometimes we can get sun burnt because we like to stay out in the sun more because it makes us feel good. But getting burnt in the sun is no fun! So to cool & soothe the skin, help is at hand! After sun lotions can help to heal sun burn aswell as cool and relieve the burning sensation. So it's good to get an after sun lotion aswell. But Aloe Vera gel is also a good alternative should you run out of after sun lotion 🖒
Lastly are these products:
• Batiste Dry Shampoo
• Johnson's Baby bedtime oil.
• Dove Deodorant spray.
My hair gets dry and crispy and feels awkward in the heat due to the sun. Washing your hair may sometimes be a doddle when your on the go. I like to use Batiste dry shampoo to refresh and revive my hair in between washes. It's handy and does the job, so no complaints there! 😚
No doubt that whenever we have hot weather, sleeping well will certainly not come easy! To help me relax after taking a cool shower, i pat some of the baby bedtime oil on my body which gently helps me unwind and drift off to sleep. Formulated with lavender & chamomile extracts, it's a sure hit with me to sleeping easy! 🤗
One item that is an absolutely must for me is Deodorant! Yes, yes yes! Without a doubt, deodorant in the hot weather has got to be the most important in my summer skincare! When your sweating away, the last thing you need is people commenting on your personal hygiene! It's not nice trust me, and that's definately not what you want people to know about aswell! So deodorant whether solid stick, roll on or even spray is all good to help keep you smelling sweet & fresh! 🖒
So friends, that is my Summer care routine! These are my favourite items to use that help me get though summer. Do you use any of these or are thinking to invest in? I have given you my opinion, so maybe you might want to try them out?
Do let me know your comments below to let me know how you get on with them. See you all again soon!
So until next time, take care & stay beautiful! 😘💖🖒 xXXx
