We’re finally in summer now thank god! If you live in the UK, you will know how hot the weather has been recently. I swear the weather doesn’t even give us a gradual change… One minute I’m sat with a heated blanket, drinking tea, and the next I’ve got the fan on, sitting practically naked on my bed!
Okay, less picturing me half naked, and lets get into the post!
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that we have to use sunscreen or we’ll burn to a crisp. This sunscreen also has tanning accelerating properties in, meaning that you’ll tan faster! What’s not to love!
This is a life saver for me. I also brought multiple bottles with me to Croatia, and don’t think I could have survived without it! It is basically cold water in a can, but it’s so nice to spray on throughout the day! Also, this is brilliant for helping you cool off with them horrible winter fevers.
What can’t coconut oil do?! You can use it as a makeup remover, moisturiser, hair mask, cooking oil, teeth whitener, fat burner and more! It’s incredible stuff! In summer, our hair and body can get a little bit too dry for my liking. Pop this on, and you’ll feel a million dollars.
If I’ve ever commented on your skincare post before, I’ve likely mentioned Mario Badescu. Their products are honestly incredible and have SAVED my skin. I personally use their rose water facial spray and their drying lotion, but for summer, I’m definitely going to swap over from my rose spray to this one. The ingredients in this would be so refreshing and calming on overly cooked skin!
I mentioned this product briefly in my Nuxe travel set review, but oh my. This product is incredible! So many people (including myself) forget about caring for their lips! I 100% recommend this. I have the WORST lips ever. They’re always peeling, cracked, and bleeding. Not anymore. Thanks Nuxe!
I like to ‘cheat’ my way to a tan at the start of summer. I love this gradual tanner from Dove. It’s so moisturising, and leaves the most beautiful glowing tan. Love. Also, I will soon be posting a tanning routine post using this product, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
I HATE wearing heavy foundation at the best of times, let alone in summer when it literally melts off of your face. If you still want a slight bit of coverage, buy a tinted moisturiser instead! Or, you can easily make your own at home by mixing your usual foundation and moisturiser!
I couldn’t express my love for body shimmer oils enough. They look INCREDIBLE with any skin tone. Night or day. Beach or garden. I would be happy to bath in the stuff.
So there we have it! All my favourites to have in the summer time in one post!
What are your summer must haves?
