Summer essentials

We don’t have that many sunny days here, in England, however, when we do – it’s important to take care of your skin. I am pale as a sheet of paper, therefore I need proper care for my skin which usually tends to be very sensitive. I am very sceptical about using a lot of products though. So, here is my top 3 summer essentials that maintain normal condition of my skin throughout the summer.

image[1] Body lotion/cream by Collistar. I don’t particularly like those heavy and greasy body butters, therefore I choose to use something light on my skin. Collistar Crema Rassodante Intensiva (Intensive firming cream) is my go-to favourite this summer. This lotion is full of active ingredients, super absorbable and exceptionally smooth. It protects the collagen and elastic fibres gradually giving increased tone and compactness as well as nourishment and moisture to your body skin. I love this product because it sinks into my skin very quickly, and in general it’s a perfect cream after sunbathing.

[2] I also don’t forget my hands. In order to protect and nourish them I use Lithuanian brand Margarita ecological hand cream with oat milk and cranberry extract. What I like about this cream is that it’s cheap and performs particularly well for the price you pay. Oat milk has moisturising and soothing properties whereas cranberry extract protects from damaging environmental effects such as sun. It’s particularly suitable for sensitive skin and it sinks very well too. Cheap, great quality and nice smelling product!

[3] Last but not least is face cream by M&S (Pro-Tolerance Anti-Redness Instant Relief Cream). Honestly I never tried any cosmetics from M&S because usually I don’t go there very often. Last time I’ve been there was when we got £100 voucher to spend, and this was the time when I bought this cream. This cream gently calms and comforts whilst leaving skin feel hydrated. It also has some cooling and soothing properties, thus it’s a good cream to use in the summer. This cream is supposed to reduce redness on your face, and to my surprise it does what it says, however, in order to maintain a long-term effect you shouldn’t be lazy. Apply it every morning and evening. Overall, it’s a really nice, lightweight cream which is even suitable to use before you apply your foundation. Highly recommend.

So, these are my top 3 summer essentials which are used pretty much every day. Tell me what are your favourite summer products?
