My Summer Skin Care Essentials

☼ FACE ☼

Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser: I prefer to use foaming cleansers in summer as my skin tends to become much oilier than usual. I love this cleanser by Formula 10.0.6 because it leaves my skin feeling really refreshed and clean, without being overly drying or completely stripping my skin. I like to use it with my Models Prefer Cleansing Brush to exfoliate and really deep clean my pores.

SkinLite Strawberry Yoghurt Masque & Re-Energising Green Tea Masque: Although I love using face masks all year round, in summer I prefer to switch to something that is more clarifying and refreshing and that will to soak up any excess oil on my skin. Both of these masks are great because they make my skin super soft and smooth, but the Green Tea Masque is my fave - it's cooling and so relaxing, perfect for those hot nights.

Crop Daily Facial Moisturiser: This moisturiser is perfect for the summer months as it is super light and is absorbed into my skin really quickly. It add the perfect amount of hydration back into my skin after cleansing and doesn't leave behind any greasiness. The only downside to this moisturiser is that it doesn't contain any SPF, so if I know I'm going to be outside a lot during the day I make sure to apply some sunscreen to my face first.

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub: My lips tend to get really dry and flakey in summer, which is why the next two products are so important to my summer routine. This Lush lip scrub is amazing stuff! I just take a little bit on my finger and rub it all over my lips to scrub away any dry skin. It smells (and tastes) delicious and gets my lips back to baby softness.

Milk & Co. Coconut Kiss Lip Moisturiser*: After a good lip scrub I like to follow up with a lip balm to really moisturise my lips. I have had this one my Milk & Co. in my handbag for a while now and I've been loving it! It also smells amazing and just melts into the lips leaving them hydrated and smooth.

☼ BODY ☼

LeTan SPF30+ Coconut Lotion: Sunscreen is an essential during summer and although I'm not too fussy with what brand I use, I try to look for a formula that doesn't leave too much of a greasy or sticky residue on my skin. This LeTan sunscreen is great because it soaks in quickly and smells amazing!

LeTan Iced Green Tea with Aloe Vera After Sun Spray: For those times when I spend too long in the sun or forget to reapply my sunscreen, a cooling after sun spray is a must have. At home I used to pick a stalk off one of my Mum's aloe vera plants and use the sap straight from the plant - au naturel - but since discovering this after sun spray by LeTan I've been hooked. It feels amazing on sunburn and really helps to add some moisture back into the skin. Keep it in the fridge to make it even more soothing.

Bondi Sands Everyday SPF15 Gradual Tanning Milk: In summer I like to switch my regular body lotion out for a moisturising gradual tanner to add a bit more colour to my skin. Bondi Sands is my favourite brand of self tanner (their Dark Tanning Foam is amazing!) and their gradual tanning milk is super easy to use; no need to worry about it turning out orange or streaky. It also has a light coconut scent and SPF15 - great for everyday sun protection if you're not spending too much time outside.
