The humidity is rising and Summer just around the corner [less than a month to go!] – the perfect time to start gathering your Summer essentials; you know, the perfect bikini, your signature Summer scent to accompany your signature Summer beverage, perfectly complemented by the best skin you’ve ever had and the smoothest legs of your life.
Here are some of our essentials.
Don’t even think about inviting around your friends for a casual Sunday afternoon soiree unless your house smells amazing! ECOYA has you covered with their latest limited edition fragrances, their Guava & Lychee Sorbet Madison Jar matches any interior and smells like a bowl of fresh berries and melted popsicles. Delicious! (and perfect to complement that jug of sangria you’ve just whipped up).
As far as a signature scent goes, how could you go past a perfume aptly named Modern Muse Chic!? Leave the fruity, citrus scents for the beach and opt for a vibrant floral scent with rich woody undertones for after dark. Modern Muse Chic features scents of tuberose, lillies, juicy plum, cashmere wood, patchouli and vanilla; it’s unique and bold – just like you. It’s also brand new for Summer, hitting counters November 2nd.
And for your luscious locks, everyone’s hair looks better with a little volume. Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Volume Boost Daily Refresher is a refreshing spray that boosts body. It’s like a dry shampoo, only finer, minus any powdery residue, with added volume! Perfect to get a tousled look [that’s never flat] to take you from beach to bar.
Smooth, hydrated skin is an absolute MUST as the weather warms up. No, you cannot get away with moisturizing your legs every 3 days! Ella Bache’s Water Source Crème is my absolute favourite body moisturizer at the moment, it is so rich but not at all greasy or sticky. It’s absorbed almost immediately and leaves skin ever-so-smooth.
One of my favourite products for your face is Danne Montague King’s Seba E Hydrating Oil – it’s the finest blend of Vitamin E and herbal oils. Perfect for combating dryness and dehydration. No matter your skin type, do not be scared to put OIL on your face! It penetrates deep within the epidermis and plumps skin, if you’ve ever wondered how those girls get dewy, glowing skin – this is it.
All that’s left is your bikini of choice, oversized sunglasses, a designer beach towel and a chilled bottle of your favourite Champagne… Summer weekend, sorted!
