Some of us are packing for a sun vacation and the rest are getting ready for a hot summer in the city. No matter what your plans are, here is an ultimate cravings’ list to get you armoured-up for a heat-wave.
From top left corner clockwise:
Do you like sweating? Neither do we. The worst part is when it’s so hot you can barely breath and your face gets all red. Next time it happens we want to be ready to fight the enemy with the ultimate skin refresher, a.k.a Beauty Elixir by Caudalie. This divinely scented mist brightens up complexion and gives the skin a real boost of radiance, while at the same time smoothes away fine lines, tightens the pores and even sets make-up. If it’s not in your handbag yet, it really should be!
In case you’re one of those crazy-suntan-hunters and will be flying to the other side of the globe just to lie on a beach and get that perfect bronze tone you’ve been dreaming of during the whole winter, start prepping your skin a couple of weeks before the take-off. It’s all about two magic words: exfoliation and moisture. Scrub the dead skin away with Brown Sugar Body Polish from Fresh. As it contains a blend of four precious oils of evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and jojoba it will also keep your skin nourished and moisturised. But ladies, remember to control your sweet cravings, even though this scrub is delicious and all natural, stop using it a couple of days before your first sunbath, as you want your skin to have time to build new layers and be less sensitive to the UV-rays. And for god’s sake, wear the sunscreen. A-l-w-a-y-s w-e-a-r t-h-e s-u-n-s-c-r-e-e-n!
We love sun-bleached hair soaked in salty water and blown dry by the wind. But hair doesn’t necessarily likes this type of treatment and it may get weak and dry after a week on the sea-shore. To make everyone happy, just pack a tube of Aveda‘s After-Sun Hair Masque. It helps to moisturise your hair and defend it against free radicals thanks to anti-oxidizing blend of green tea extract, certified organic sunflower seed oil and vitamin E.
As you can see we’re all for having fun in the sun, while looking gorgeous and staying healthy. That’s why we’ve also included a pair of vintage-chic-petal-pink Cat-Eye Sunglasses from & Other Stories and a bohemian Acne hat to finish the look. They will both protect your eyes from the bright light and the head from overheating and might win you an award as a best dressed (or will it be more appropriate to say undressed?) girl on the beach.
