My Summer Beauty Essentials

My Summer beauty routine is very simple: it is all about looking after my skin. No sun unless I am wearing adequate SPF – 50 to begin, then 30 and 20 if I am really tanned –  and never any sun between 12 and 5pm (see 5 & 6 – I have sensitive skin and am prone to sun/sun cream allergies so I use La Roche Posay). Heavy moisturising for both face (see 2 – I use Avène Hydrance at the moment) and body (regular moisturiser in the morning and after sun lotion in the evening, see 4 – Lovea is a great brand).
I also tend to forget about make-up altogether on holidays, but if I am going out for dinner, I always put on a bit of mascara, cream blush and some sheer lipstick. This Summer my faves are from Lancôme and The Body Shop (3, 7 & 8).
Last but not least, I spray myself every day with a bit of Peoneve, the new fragrance from Penhaligon’s (love them) composed of violet leaves, peonies and Bulgarian roses, vetiver and musk which in my book means perfection (see 1).
Below is a little shopping list for you with my picks for the Summer.
Traduction – En été, je fais très attention à ma peau: pas de soleil entre 12h et 17h et si je vais au soleil, c’est avec de la protection 50 (puis 30 ou 20 si je suis très bronzée). J’hydrate bien mon visage et mon corps matin et soir et je ne me maquille que si je sors le soir. Enfin, comme parfum j’ai choisi Peoneve de chez Penhaligon’s.

Ma liste est ci-dessous.
