3 summer hacks
I have three products that make my life easier and I am going to tell you why. These 3 summer hacks (life hacks in summer) are good all seasons, but especially in summer I can’t live without them. So let’s start with number one.
1. Sephora Illuminating bronzing oil
I bought this bronzing oil at Sephora recently and it helps me looking bronzed in just seconds. I think it’s the best one of my 3 summer hacks. I wear a lot of skirts and short sleeves in summer and I have a very light skin tone. In Sweden there’s not that much sun all year and if you don’t go on a holiday, you usually turn into a person whiter than the snow here ha ha. So in summer when you think you have a little bit of color on the skin, this product just helps to make you look shiny, glowy and a little bit more bronzed. The product makes your skin looks hydrated too, since it’s oil. I love to make my skin summer ready in seconds and that’s why this products just touches up my skin. Instead of using a bronzing make-up powder to get the result; this will do the work much better. This is not a self-tan product.
2. Björn Axén styling powder dry shampoo
This dry shampoo from Björn Axén is a power product which I stray on my scalp, just a bit on the side of my head. I lift up a bit of hair and under it I spray some of this dry shampoo. Why do I do this and how does it help me? In summer when it’s warm, my hair gets oily much faster. I don’t feel like washing my hair every day and besides that, it’s bad for my hair since I bleached it. Washing my hair every day will make it dry and damaged more. At least, that’s what I experience. So this product gives me a fresh touch up. My scalp smells fresh and clean. Besides that, this product makes my hair lifted up more. My hair gets so much volume straight away. Again in seconds I feel fresher, more feminine with a lot of volume and it also prevents my scalp for getting more oily. What is a good trick, is to put the dry shampoo the night before you actually want your hair to look good. In the morning the volume is all pumped up and the dry shampoo became one with your hair and head. Give it a try =)
3. Dior bronze self-tanning creme natural glow
Since I use foundation every day, my face doesn’t get a lot of sun when the sun is actually shining. Besides that I use a high SPF to protect my skin. I don’t tan so much in my face and that can look again pale and boring in summer. Who wants to look pale and boring? I don’t. So what do I do; I use a self-tanning creme. This Dior creme is specially for the body. I always use it on my face too, even though it’s not made specially for the face. It works for me, but I should recommend you a self tan for the face. In that case, you can try the exact same tanning creme from Dior, but then it says ‘face/visage’ on it. The ingredients will care more for your facial skin.
Anywas, why this is my third summer hack is because I see so many people (men and women) with legs whiter than milk, but with bronzed arms, shoulders and face. And that’s not so nice, is it? So how easy is it to use a bit of self-tan on your legs the night before you’re going to wear shorts and in the morning waking up with bronzed legs. That first day in the sun, you look perfect and the contrast isn’t that big. Your legs will get tanned by the sun then as well.
Oh, and yes of course you can add summer hack number 1 on top of it!
These 3 summer hacks make my life easier. I look better in just seconds (and one night of sleep).
What are your 3 summer hacks?
I would love to know more of these getting-ready-fast-tips now that the summer heat has started, even in Stockholm.
Have the best summer ever!
With lots of love,
