Bye Bye dull winter skin! Every change of season is hard on the skin but there’s nothing better than rebooting skin after a long winter and getting that summer glow into full effect.
I love a good summer glow, the more dewy the better, so it’s essential for me to get rid of the dead skin that comes with the harsh winter. I swear by exfoliating with Clarisonic and I love their new Mia Fit portable travel version. I travel often and the more compact my beauty products, the better so Mia was really a life saver. I use a medium strength brush together with my lancome face wash around twice a week and the effects are almost instant.
I also recently started using Charlotte Tilbury products and I am obsessed with the results. I can’t decide which product I love the most but I do wear the Magic Cream every day since it has collagen and SpF15 which I need on my trips to Miami. After I apply the Wonder glow Face Primer all over for a total glow, I use the beach stick in Ibiza with a brush on my cheekbones, forehead and nose to give me that ‘I just spent the day suntanning’ look. The other product I love is the eyeshadow bricks with their golden specks. I was invited to meet Charlotte and her team of make up experts and I was given 3 looks from her kits in total. My favorite was the Golden Goddess which is perfect for my summer style of beauty. Another star product is her Supermodel Glow ‘Giselle in a bottle’ bronzing gel which has a great applicator that rolls over the parts you want to highlight and it doesn’t leave that glittery look but more of a dewy bronze sheen.
I style my hair a lot more in summer with tongs to achieve waves and since my hair is super straight it’s really important that I keep it moisturized and healthy. I love using any shampoo with coconut oil in it to achieve this like the one from Ogx. I highlight my hair and the harsh sun rays seem to change the color somewhat and make it appear bronze which I hate! I recently was given Wella’s System Professional range to try out in Miami and I have to say that my haircolor stayed it exactly as it should! I used the shampoo, color save conditioner but also loved their moisture spray ‘Helio’ which smells like summer in a bottle!
