5 MUST-HAVES FOR A FLAWLESS SUMMER SKIN
1. ECOLLAGEN SKIN CARE SET
I have tried all Oriflame skin care brands, and found that the NovAge Ecollagen range works best for me. I’ve invested in the whole set, and am religious about performing all the steps morning and night.
I start by cleansing, then toning. After that I roll the eye cream around my eyes. Then I finish my routine by applying serum and a moisturiser (day or night cream – depending on the time). In summer-time I use the Ecollagen Wrinkle since my foundation already contains SPF!
2. CLEANSING BRUSH
It’s not unusual to get oilier skin and more breakouts in summer. I counteract this by using a cleansing brush to deep-clean my pores without harsh abrasion or chemicals. The fact that this tool helps to remove so much more makeup and dirt than manual cleansing, enables my skin to absorb products better and be more receptive to their ingredients.
3. FACIAL OIL
In winter my skin dries out easily, so I slather on oil at every chance I get. But in summer I only blend some of the EcoBeauty Facial Oil into my night cream about once a week. I apply the blend over my entire face to lock in moisture. This makes my skin look extra dewy the next morning. I have tried plenty of face oils, but found this to be the most nourishing. It also gets extra points for it being Certified Organic. I always bring this oil, for extra moisture, when I travel!
No matter if I go to work, for a lunch in the city or a day at the beach, I always make sure to protect any exposed skin from UV rays. NovAge Day Shield SPF30 or SPF50 are great in the city as they also help to minimise the negative impact of pollution. When I’m sunbathing or swimming I use Sun Zone products – they’re perfect for the whole body!
5. BODY CARE
Scrubbing is a must after the dry winter months. I use Milk & Honey Gold Smoothing Scrub which is great. I also moisturise using the Optimals body firming lotion. Sometimes I add Swedish Spa Beauty Wonder Oil. It leaves my skin feeling super smooth – perfect for the summer months!
