The Two Important Things you’ll Need For the Summer

skicare review

There is only two things you will definitely need for the summer that everyone should have handy. We all know that I am going to say sunscreen. And it truly is a lifesaver and skin saver at that. I am obsessed with wearing it. I mean OBSESSED! I don’t care whether its winter, spring or summer its on my face regardless. One, because it can help prevent types of skin cancers, but also I want to age gracefully too. Call me a little vain but if that’s what it takes to get you wearing one too, well by all means wear it for whatever reason, but wear the damn sunscreen.

The other thing I will talk about is a thermal spray water. I know a lot of people may not think of it as an essential or even a basic thing everyone should have. But why not? It is so simplistic in what it is, but it is such a multi-tasker, especially in the summer time. From soothing sunburns, cuts and rashes to setting your makeup and hydrating the skin at the same time, it should be in everyone’s bag, car, fridge etc. It’s almost like a hidden secret that no one knows. Today’s post I will write a review on both my current sun care and the thermal water I use.

Avene Thermal Water Spray

What does it do? Why should I use it? What is it exactly? All good questions and here is the answers to it. It does everything! Well for me, I bought it and started using it many years ago when I was deep into doing peels, using glycolic treatments constantly. After these treatments, my skin would be very dehydrated, which is normal. So I started spraying this thermal water on afterwards and it felt so nice and soft afterward, that I continued to use it even to this day for after shaving my legs and in winter when my skin gets itchy and dry. I spray this on before I moisturize and it really helped soothe my skin. My husband even uses it after he shaves, because it comes down his skin too. My husband doesn’t use anything on his face except this. So that should tell you how good it is.

“Originating as pure rain mixed with sea-spray rich in mineral salts, Avène Thermal Spring Water makes its 50-year journey through the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France.It gradually becomes infused with trace elements and silicates, and comes in contact with an ancient microorganism Aqua.Dolomiae, which was first identified by Avène in 2001. This remarkable biological property combined with the well-known mineral properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water ensures gentleness and tolerance, creating a unique double signature that does not exist anywhere else in the world.”


If you would like more information, I have typed out the website at the bottom of this page. But basically you need to have this in your life, because it will do wonders for you and your skin.


Clarins spf 40 Sunscreen

Anyone who is reading is will know that clarins has discontinued this product! They have replaced it with one that has spf 50. Its mixed reviews on that one, because apparently it’s not the same texture and consistency like this one. I’m not sure if I’ll try that one, but I know this one is perfect for my oily skin. Super comfortable, lightweight and it glides on easily. Its perfect under makeup and my makeup doesn’t look goopy or it doesn’t add shine to my already shiny face. It goes on matte, almost feels powder like. I truly love this sunscreen and I would have gone back to it if they still sold it. Until then, i will keep using this one til its done.

I think when you add these to your skin care routine, you will obviously see changes in your skin. They are the simplest things you can add to your routine to keep your skin looking its best. So why not go for it? Why not do what you can to keep your skin healthy?

Until next week my beauties, have a good day!
