My beautiful lovelies, I thought I’d share with you a few simple tips and tricks to take care of our skin during Summer. My summer skin care tips are especially addressed to those of you cute pies who are stuck in town dreaming of a tropical haven. If you are leaving for the seaside, do not forget to check out my post about Beach Beauty essentials. Whether you’re staying in an air conditioned environment or you are gasping in your apartment, devote particular attention to hydration. Air conditioning, heat, and frequent showers really stress out our skin, which is bound to become as dry as parchment paper. Unless…you drink a lot, eat healthy and keep applying moisturizing lotions, masks and serums. Here are my top summer skin care tips.
Get started by serving yourself a pitcher of water with ice and freshly squeezed lemon juice. It will have an immediate refreshing and invigorating effect. Then prepare a detox water by putting in cold infusion mint, basil and / or pieces of fruit – at your discretion. Cover with film and leave in the refrigerator over night. The next day you can enjoy a powerful hydrating drink, rich in minerals and vitamins. Avocado is a rich fruit that can preserve the moisture barrier of our skin. Blend it with tomato and basil for a green smoothie that can replace lunch. Or pour the mix onto rice cakes, for a lighter version of bruschetta. Smash a quarter of the fruit, mix with white yogurth and and apply it on your face as a soothing and nourishing mask. Keep in the fridge your cosmetics. During Summer more than ever, I suggest you should choose organic lotions and serums, free of chemical photo-sensitizing ingredients.
In the morning pamper your skin with a full treatment: hydrating tonic, intense moisturizing serum, face cream. The 100% organic skin care line of Le Mont Botanique is available in handy mono-dose ampoules that you can take with you any time. As a side note, LMB 5-day rescue pack is the perfect solution to travel light and take good care of our skin during vacation too. I have personally tried it and recommend it. During the day spray your face with thermal water or a refreshing tonic lotion, like Prep and Prime Fix + by MAC. I read about it on Beautify beauty blog and I can’t wait to try it! For a 100% natural solution, wait for Rose water spray by Le Mont Botanique to be released over the next few weeks. In the evening remove your makeup gently but thoroughly, then apply a regenerating cream overnight. I use Emotion Biological Skincare cleansing oil, then apply this rich anti age mousse by Emporio Organico and a delicate eye cream with extract of Bulgarian Rose hip by Le Mont Botanique. What do you think my loves? I’d love if you could share your top summer skin care tips!
