Sommer på læberne

Jeg har lige hørt, vi har haft den koldeste juli måned i 10 år… Rimelig deprimerende… men altså, lidt solskin har vi da haft og nu skulle det blive dejligt vejr i weekenden, og SÅ vil jeg virkelig anbefale jer til at prøve denne geniale lipstift fra Lipstick Queen – et amerikansk niche makeupbrand, der udelukkende laver produkter til læberne.

Mornin’ Sunshine er det smukkeste du kan tilføre læberne her til (sen)sommeren. Lad dig ikke narre af den gule farve og at læbestiften umiddelbart ligner en læbepomade – den unikke formula tilpasser sig læbernes PH værdi og giver dine læber den smukkeste koralfarve, fra vandmelon til lys fersken – alt afhængig af ph værdien. Sejt, ik?  Indeholder også plejende E-vitamin og solsikkeolie.

Mornin’ Sunshine fra Lipstick Queen, 185 kr. hos Sephora. (desværre kan jeg ikke se den på webshoppen endnu…)

Important Holiday Skincare Routine

Mange af jer kender sikker til at urenhederne kommer snigende i takt med at forbruget af solcreme stiger. Det kan være sommeren igennem, eller på en ferie, som jeg er på nu. Når det er varmt, sveder man naturligt mere og det betyder at porerne åbner sig. Når porerne åbner sig, sætter skidt og snavs sig bedre fast og sammen med fed solcreme, blokkerede dette porerne og giver uren hud. Bum!

Mit bedste tip og noget der har fungeret ret godt for mig, er at rense huden godt hver morgen og aften med en konjak svamp. Jeg bruger svampen sammen med en cremet cleanser, hvor jeg med cirkulerende bevægelser bevæger svampen rundt i ansigtet, så den blidt exfolierer huden på det blideste vist. Konjacsvampen er lavet af et rent naturmateriale fra en asiatisk kartoffelplante og gør en ret stor forskel på min hud. Jeg har ikke helt sluppet for et par knupper, men det er betydelig bedre end det ellers kan være.

After sun comes; AfterSun

The sun and the summer’s finally all warmed up and for the next week weathercasts looks pretty nice for the most of Scandinavia. I hope you’ve stocked up on sunscreen and add plenty througout the day? Also remember to re-apply after a dip in the pool or ocean.

But have you though about aftersun? It’s a good idea to have a bootle in your fridge (nice and cool) if you’re getting burned. It’s often packed with aloe vera and moisturizing ingredients that nourished and softens your skin.

Summertip for your hair

c5479

I’ve talked about the importance of SPF protection for your hair earlier, but this is also a tip you should have in mind. Before going to the beach or out boating, soak your hair with tap water before you use your SPF spray. This will not only save you from using to much product, but only protect your hair more, since your hair will soak up the freshwater instead of saltwater, which is very drying on your hair.

Sun Protecting Spray from Balmain not only protects your hair from UVA and UVB, but also your haircolour as well as it smoothens and softens your hair.

Summer Gorgeous On A Budget

This summer you need a saltwaterspray to create those loose, effortless beachy waves. Wet down your water first, so your hair does not get to dry and spray around 10 times sprays into your roots. Let it air dry, if your hair already has natural waves, or devide your hair into random sections (5-7), twist the hair and wrap it around two fingers, all the way up to your scalp and secture with a clip. Let 2 cm of the ends be unwrapped. Let it dry, take the clips out and shake!

A bronzer is a genius way of highlighting your summerglow. Use it where to sun naturally hits your face, like the cheeks, bridge of your nose, hairline and chin. Take a look at this video, if you’re insecure. This bronzer has different shades of colour, including a warm abricot, which gives your face a natural look.

This is a great drugstore scoop – the Baby Lips lipbalm gives your lips moisture, a hint of colour and SPF protection 20. A must have in your pocket this summer. My favorite colour is Cherry Me – a natural, deeper lip colour. A great extra tip, is to dab a tiny bit of this balm into the apples of your cheeks, to give a bit of colour and glow.

On the limit of being a budget scoop, but in this sunscreen you’re not only getting protection, but also a tinted moisturizer. It look’s really good on the skin, but you need a bit of a beginners colour first, since this is a one colour fits all.
