Taking care of your skin is very important, especially during summer. Our skin needs sun, but not too much. It needs to breathe and be clear.
I’ve been taught that it wasn’t necessarily good to use your usual skincare routine during summer. Especially if you spend a lot of time on the beach. Here, let me show you how I take care of my skin during summer.
The few products I use are usually from the brands La Roche Posay, Bioderma and Eucerin.
STEP 1 : CLEANING
Clarifying your skin is the key to a beautiful look. I always use a brush to clean out my pores as I have an oily skin.
To do so I rather use my Clinique washing gel or the bioderma one, and a rotating brush that I bought in a shop (can be found anywhere).
STEP 3: PURIFY
After cleaning my skin I use a clarifying and purifying solution to make sure my pores are clean (yes I am obsessed).
STEP 4: HYDRATE
After purifying my skin with the solution I use an hydrating cream from La Roche Posay or a very light serum from Bioderma.
It can be used several times in the day and even over makeup.
STEP 5 : HYDRATE AGAIN
I then hydrate my skin with a very very light thermal spring water from La Roche Posay. It helps regenerating the skin and can be used both in the morning and in the evening.
STEP 6: PROTECTING
The most important step. Especially for people like me who hates the sun and its drying effect on the skin.
Everyday I use a solar protection cream from Eucerin 50 SPF to avoid skin burn (BLACK PEOPLE CAN GET SUNBURN TOO BE WISE!)
Another hack if you really want to keep your skin right and not just burn like a toast, use a pretty hat when you are strolling under the sun.
STEP 7: MAKEUP
Instead of using my regular foudation (from Mac), I use a BB or CC cream with sun protection in it during the day. At night I use regular foundation, but a CC or BB cream is much more pleasant on the skin. It is not sticky and doesn’t melt.
STEP 8: REMOVING MAKEUP AND EVENING CLEANING
Finally after a whole day of wearing so much stuff on my skin I remove my makeup with a micellar solution that contains oil. I wash my face with my usual soap and then I use an after sun solution from .
