my summer picks for 2018

Since it has been warmer, I noticed I get oily/greasier faster. (My scalp also gets greasy.) While this is not unusual given the warm weather.. It makes my skin breakout. I need to change something on my skincare/hair care routine.  So, after much research and contemplating…I recently swapped my daily moisturizer for a lighter one with a higher SPF.

So, have been using the Biore UV Aqua Rich Essence with spf 50 for a week now. It has proven to be a good switch since my skin has ‘stabilized’ for the time being. While I still have some acne from the breakout, my skin stayed normal without being too oily by the end of the day.

For my scalp, I switched to Head and Shoulders shampoo in cool menthol. So far, I like using it as it keeps the greasiness away and it does have the refreshing feel to the scalp as well.

all the products I am using this summer season

To avoid sunburns for the extended amount of time that I will be out in the sun, I still rely on Dermplus sunblock in the spf 130 as it has proven to work well for me last summer.

I also switched my perfume for the more summery ones that I have, these days I tend to use Versace Eros for women- it smells good indoors/in an air-conditioned room, and I still love my trusty old Ralph by Ralph Lauren for women –used when I go outdoors under the sun.  Both are fresh, fruity, floral scents.

For the lips and nail colors, I am going for that ‘natural’ looking but still a happy summer-y color so I am sticking with corals. For my nails I got them in the shade Coralium from Chanel that is a coral color with a tinge of pink. It sure is bright but not neon, that is just perfect for summer days! As for the lips I am using the Loreal x Balmain lipstick in the shade confession -a pigmented coral/nude that is perfect for summer.

So far these are the products that I am using this summer. Till I find something to add to it. 

What are your current summer staples?

This is not a sponsored post, I paid for this (from) my own pocket, with the exception of the nail polish that I am using -it was available as a nail color option from the nail salon.

hot weather

I feel the rise in the temperature, summer is here! -a few more days  and I am out of the office!

right after Kei’s haircut and shopping for summer stuff.

Kei got a haircut, summer shirts, flipflops and a summer hats are brought. we are so ready to go out and have a dip in the pool!

Pepper is wearing my hat, ready for the summer sun. 

We still do not have anywhere in particular to go to for the (extended) holy weekend– we are winging it this year. But, I stocked up on the usual sachet packets for a lightweight bag.

sachet galore! the only thing missing is the soap. -I usually bring the current soap I use.

A good find that I got for summer is the Dermplus spf130 sachet. I have used the brand last summer too and happy to say no sunburns!
