During my TRIP TO TURKEY I made sure to pack summer skincare essentials. Because I know how much we all love spending our summer out in the sun soaking in as much sun-rays as we can. Though as much fun it may be pool or beachside getting the perfect tan, it’s also important to take care of your skin. You don’t need much, but there are some essentials I can’t live without when it comes to getting sunshine.
- Avéne - Cleansing Lotion
- Hawaiian Tropic - Tanning Oil, SPF 2 - 10
- Warby Parker Sunglasses
- Avéne - After Sun Repair Lotion
- These four elements cover the before, during, and after while focusing on keeping your body fresh and your face cleansed. Acne breakout free (because we all know a lot of sun can cause oil build up and acne to arise). This is why my first mandatory essential is to help keep your face clean and prevent oil build up. Nobody likes acne during the summer. For my second essential, it’s obviously tanning oil and this can range from various SPF’s depending on your skin tolerance. Since I’m hispanic, I could use SPF 2 without any problems as long as I reapplied every three hours. Granting me an extremely golden tan at the end of my four days in Turkey. Now for my third essential, is a fashionable pair of sunglasses that offer a polarized tint to protect from the sun and add a cool texture to all of your summer photos. And finally, my last essential is to help once you’ve made the common mistake of putting too little tanning oil on in an effort to speed up tanning process. Yes, this after sun repair lotion helped save me while I was in Turkey. After two days of baking my skin, it was about to be on fire, but by applying Avéne’s sun repair lotion to my entire body each night. The lotion instantly helped cool and repair my skin without the annoying sunburn discomfort. Allowing me to enjoy my trip back home. :)
