Dear Loves, we bet you are already dreaming of hot sands, aperitivo by the beach and off-the shoulder, flowy dresses. Any prep for the new season, however, should include a beauty overhaul.
In winter, dry skin seems to take over our entire body, making us look dull and a bit grey. But worry no more – as always, we’ve got you covered.
This is the perfect time to work a lil’harder to reveal your best skin ever, while protecting your skin from sun damage and preventing dark spots and breakouts. Read below our best advice to reveal glowy, healthy skin - all summer long.
A Face full of Sunbeams
You must have red it a million times – magazines are full of guides on how you should opt for lighter consistencies for your products in summer. However, during the warmer months your skin can get very dehydrated, leading to a premature aging, excessive oil production to compensate and hyperpigmentation/dark spots. Hear what the experts have to say: “Dry skin can get even drier in the summer. Sun exposure, heat and chlorine can dry out your skin in the warmer months as you spend more time outside or poolside. You may also become more dehydrated as the temperature rises which can affect your skin’s appearance.” This summer, focus on richer textures for protected, young, glowy and plump skin.
First step, is always protection. These mineral based liquid face drops will protect your skin against environmental pollution and harmful UV rays.

This product is amazing when paired with your SPF. During Summer, the sun dries out the skin and makes it more vulnerable to UV rays.
