3 ways to extend that summer feeling
Aussies can’t complain too much – we’ve had quite the gorgeous summer. Hot but breezy days, balmy nights and ice-cold cocktails – yep, it seems we’ve definitely had a pretty perfect summer.
So, with rainy days and chillier nights forecast for the not too distant future, what can we do to extend that blissful summer feeling? I can think of three things you can implement into your beauty regime to help stall the chill setting in…
Switch to a summery scent
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that choosing a summery scent is a sure fire way to pull yourself out of a rainy season slump. Whether you love fruits, coconuts or fresh summery blooms, you’re sure to be able to find a scent that suits you and screams summer. We love Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche SkinScent, as it contains notes of coconut milk, sandalwood, vanilla, mandarin, lavender and jasmine. If you prefer something a bit more floral, try Molton Brown Mahina Fine Fragrance - the paradise-inspired scent encapsulates the French Polynesia and features notes of orange blossom, ylang ylang and vanilla.
Incorporate fruity-smelling products into the mix
Switch out your regular hair products for something fruity and juicy that’ll make you feel like you’re still basking in the heat of summer. We love the WEN by Chaz Dean Regular Deluxe Kit in Summer Mango and Coconut. The nourishing hair kit contains a Cleansing Conditioner, Anti-Frizz Styling Crème and Re Moist Intensive Hair Treatment - a dream team that provides your hair with all of the reconstructive nourishment and pampering it needs to fight the effects of summer, with a scent that makes you think it’s not going anywhere.
Opt for tropical ingredients and hues
If you want to ensure you’re reminded of lying around on the beach during summer, or attending beachside get-togethers, there are a couple of elements you’ll need to have close by. Firstly, start with a sweet, pampering facial scrub like Kiehl’s Pineapple Papaya Scrub, which leaves your skin feeling fresh and soft. Next, take that feeling down to your toes with a creamy summer soap bar, like Pure Essense Sweet Orange Body Bar, which is sure to pamper you from top to toe and make you feel fabulous, fresh and summery. Finish up with a lipstick that would be sure to suit any beachside soiree – anything in the Innoxa Couleurs D’ete Summer Matte Collection should do the trick nicely.
