My Summer Essentials

I don't know you but when we start getting into May my mind starts thinking about Summer and with Summer..of course holidays!
With the temperature rising even here in Switzerland, the first thing to worry about is sun protection.
If you like me love being out in the sun it is important to always wear sun protection!
I always wear a very high protection on my face such as KIEHL'S ULTRA LIGHT DAILY UV DEFENSE SPF 50 and if you like me suffer from dark spots I would suggest you go for  CLINIQUE EVEN BETTER DARK SPOT DEFENSE SPF 45. They both are nice to be worn under make up and don't leave that white chalk effect that most high protection cream do. For those of you who are BB cream lovers try VICHY BB TINTED FACE FLUID SPF 50 it has a light and anti-shine texture and enhances and illuminate the complexion.
For the body I usually go for a spray as it is much more practical  and easy to use. I would recommend LA ROCHE POSAY ANTHELIOS XL SPRAY SPF 50 FOR FACE AND BODY. The spray gives a very high sun protection against UVA and UVB rays thanks to the patented filtering system Mexoplex combined with La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water. The spray is also suited for skin prone to sun intolerance or sun allergies.
I also love Sun protection in sticks and paricularly I love SISLEY SUPER STICK SOLAIRE SPF 30 and CLINIQUE TARGETED PROTECTION STICK SPF 35 as they both provide UVA/UVB protection for the sensitive areas of the face and are so practical to have always in the handbag.
When I am out and about in the sun I like to freshen up my face with a mist or a tonic spray. This Summer I will be using L'OCCITANE FRISSON DE VERVEINE BODY MIST and DR.HAUSCHKA FACIAL TONER. In fact I think all of L'OCCITANE FRISSON DE VERVEINE range will be perfect for bringing freshness and to cool down after a hot day in the sun.
The DR.HAUSCHKA FACIAL TONER is also good if your face is a bit red or irritated from the sun and it soothes and calms the skin.
I always say it is important to protect also your hair from the sun and so the WELLA SUN RANGE come to the rescue, they are perfect! I hate when my hair gets dry due to the sun rays and chlorine,  so I always wear Hair protection and WELLA SUN PROTECTION SPRAY is perfect as it gives protection from the UV rays and contains a vitamin complex that hydrates the hair. I also like WELLA SUN HAIR & BODY SHAMPOO as it is really good in removing impurities such as oils, sunscreen, salt and chlorine from skin and hair and leaves you cleansed and refreshed!
I like to apply an after sun lotion after I have been out in the sun and I would recommend DR.HAUSCHKA AFTER SUN LOTION as it really refreshes and relaxes skin after sunbathing, it cointains Calendula and Anthyllis extracts that soothe sun-stressed skin and it also helps tan to last longer.
I also believe in wearing a lipstick even on the beach, so I think CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICKS are just perfect to have with you as they are so easy to use and I always have them with me on the go. The new colours are also a must for Summer!
