Benefit Dream Screen

Essential Face Products for Summer Ready Skin

I wanted to share a few products which are essentials for me during the warmer months.

I love taking care of my skin with lots of skin-care products, but these are my must-haves for keeping my skin protected, hydrated and looking healthy during spring/summer.

Essential Face Products for Summer Ready Skin

I use Avène Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water as a toner all year round, but during warmer weather and especially on holiday, I use this as a hydrating face mist to give my face a spritz during the day when it’s feeling tight or dry from warm weather.

I use Avène Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water as a toner all year round, but during warmer weather and especially on holiday, I use this as a hydrating face mist to give my face a spritz during the day when it’s feeling tight or dry from warm weather.

I always take the mini 50ml version of this (pictured) away on holiday with me to spritz throughout the day to cool me down and hydrate my face. It’s anti-irritating and soothing and is such a versatile product that can be used after exercise, in summer, on holiday, during travel and for facial redness.

Benefit Dream Screen SPF 45

Next is an absolute essential and favourite of mine — Benefit Dream Screen SPF 45. It’s an invisible silky-matte face sunscreen and I absolutely love this product! I always wear SPF all year round, usually an SPF 30 during autumn and winter, but I step it up to this during spring/summer and I use it on holidays too.

Its got great protection being such a high factor of SPF 45, but what I love about it most is that it feels light-weight on the skin and dries matte with no sticky/tacky feeling that sometimes comes with sunscreens. It dries super quick too so there’s no waiting around for it to absorb fully before putting make-up on.

Also, it lasts ages as a little goes a long way to evenly cover the face. It’s one of the best face sunscreens I’ve ever used and I really hope it never gets discontinued, as I’d happily always wear this as my facial sunscreen without looking elsewhere for different ones!

Lancaster Bronzing Beauty Adjustable Tan Glow for the face

I’m a big fan of Lancaster products and I love this Bronzing Beauty Adjustable Tan Glow for the face. It’s a moisturising emulsion which has tiny beads which ‘pop’ and release colour as you smooth it around the face. It leaves a lovely, natural tan-glow which makes the skin look healthy and radiant with an even all-over colour. It’s a wash-off formula and self-tan free. It also dries super quick with no transfer; so no sticky feeling on the skin afterwards. I use the shade 01 Blonde Tan as I prefer a lighter shade for my pale complexion.

You can see the tiny beads of colour in the picture above, which release an even colour when smoothed over the face. I just love giving my face a hint of colour and a healthy glow with this and I especially love using it on holiday when I don’t wait to wear foundation, but still want a little colour and glow to my face. I also have the leg version of this, which is perfect for instant, even colour on the legs which then just washes off at the end of the day.

Do you have any favourite products which are your summer essentials?
