In summer I have a slightly different mousturising routine than I do in winter. Here are a selection of my favourite products to use.
The Body Shop - Almond Milk Body Lotion
There’s nothing worse than feeling hot and sticky, this is why I tend to shy away from thick creamy moisturisers in the summer. My favourite one to turn to is the almond milk body lotion from the body shop. This product is so light; it’s perfect for hot summer days. The skin absorbs it perfectly and you’re left feeling soft and non-sticky. The smell is divine, I love all the almond products from the body shop, I think it’s a great scent and can’t stop smelling myself after I put it on.
Apparently it contains Community trade Babassu oil which apparently can help replenish skin lipids, and as an added bonus it helps enable families in north Brazil send their children to school. How great is that? This is one of the reasons why I love shopping at the body shop.
As I mentioned in my July favourites I think this product has been discontinued which is a shame. Although looking on the body shop website it seems like they have similar products.
The Body shop – Strawberry body butter
Now I know I’ve just said that I don’t like heavy moisturisers in summer but after long days at the beach in the sun I can sometimes feel a bit dried out. I like to use this once I’ve showered after one of these long days. After I’ve washed all the salt off my skin, I need an intensive moisturiser and this one is lovely and thick and creamy. I usually put this on before I go to bed so I don’t spend the day sticky and I also feel that my tan appreciates it.
Boots Deep Moisturising Foot Cream
In the summer when your feet are always on display I like to make sure they are looking good. Well as good as feet can look. This product does the job, it leaves my feet feeling soft and smelling nice. It has lovely refreshing mint scent which is great on hot days, especially if you’ve been walking around all day.
What do you guys think of moisturising in the heat?
Lots of Love
