Summer couldn’t come fast enough this year! This is my first spring in the UK when the sun is taking its longest to come out and warm up the pale limbs that have been covered up for the whole winter. To be fair, it wasn’t too long ago when we were enjoying a trip of a lifetime in amazing South Africa, our honeymoon in fact, and the photo above is me frolicking on a beach somewhere on the Garden Route. November seems like ages ago… A few of my friends have already been on their hot sunny holidays abroad and I’m slowly losing my patience here and cannot wait until I can start wearing everything in my summer wardrobe.
After an eventful 2014 with getting married and honeymooning we decided to have a low-key holiday at home, a staycation in July with a rental car! How glamorous but I’m so excited! 😉 Destinations on our route include Cotswolds and Cornwall (never been before). We will be staying in a gorgeous B&B whilst in Cornwall, Trevose Harbour House, and I will definitely be blogging about it after. All we need is dry and warm enough weather and I’ll be happy and if we get a day on the beach that would be a great bonus.
So I’m slowly prepping my skin for this summer and I’m taking extra care of my face due to pigmentation marks that appeared last summer 😦 by making sure I always wear an SPF. Currently I’m using:
- ROC Hydra+ Summer Skin, a tanning moisturiser with an SPF20 giving my face a nice glow
- Clinique SPF30 face cream, a bit greasy at first but once dry, applying a layer of SPF tinted moisturiser is not a problem
- Dove Summer Glow, my all time favourite body lotion before and during summer, gradually building a nice even tan
