When it comes to tanning, I’m the worst. With my fair skin, red-toned hair and freckled face, I never really get beyond a vaguely sun kissed shoulder. Protecting my skin from damaging rays is high on my priority-list, so I normally use a high number of sun-protection. In the weeks prior to my departure I already soaked up some sun, so that’s why I’m okay with a factor 15 for my body. I use factor 50 for my face though, since premature wrinkles are no fun. I recommend the Organic Sun Care from BioSolis and the Soleil Divin range by Caudalie for reliable sun care. My hair is muy importante to me, so I try to take good care of it when on vacation. I just picked up a bottle of Garnier Fructis Nutri Repair 3 shampoo (great smell, good value) and will treat my locks to some Divine Oil for extra nurture.
Not really an item that comes to mind when thinking beauty products, but how important are a good pair of sunnies? I’ll be debuting my newest pair of Ray Ban wayfarers in France – these are the classic Wayfarers (RB2140) in a size 54 which I ordered off of SmartBuyGlasses. A size bigger than the ones I normally wear, so perfect to protect my face from the sun / camouflage hang-overs / hide from the paparazzi.
No matter where I’m traveling to, there’s always a can of Batiste dry shampoo in my luggage. Perfect for times when you can’t wash, or just don’t feel like it. This scent is particularly fit for summer days, as it smells of coconuts. Holy grail, this one!
