Who wants loads and loads of foundation and concealer on their face on a hot summer day? Well, me neither. So the right skincare is even more important to me in the summer months. In contrast to winter, I love light textures, perfecting formulas but it still has to be hydrating. And I think I found the perfect routine for me. So I just had to share it with you.

I don't use any oils and only a minimum amount of serums in the summer. If I want a special treatment, I use my beloved Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. But this doesn't happen daily. I like to keep it simple in the warmer months.



Let's start what I use at night. I have recently fallen in love with Clinique products, one of my favourites is the Moisture Surge creme. So light, but super hydrating! Exactly what I need. For my eye cream, I go for the All About Eyes also by Clinique. Again a very light gel texture. I might switch to the rich version once the autumn/winter comes back around. I love matte lipsticks, also in the summer, so my lips always have to be in perfect condition (no one wants to use a matte lipstick on dry and cracked lips.. THE WORST!) For this I love my ultimate multitasking product, the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. You can use it for seriously everything, but I love it for my lips. There is a special lip balm version, but I just use the regular cream, as I can also use it on any dry patches on my face or my body.. seriously such a staple!

When it comes to skincare in the morning I just skip the eye cream completely. I know some people use it also before doing their makeup but I just feel my concealer would move way too much. For moisturizer, I love the Clinique Superdefense one. It has SPF 20, and protects your skin throughout the day while being extremely light. Obsessed!


I know this might already be a part of my makeup routine, but I personally love using my BB creams even on a no-makeup day. I love this natural but perfected look. My BB cream of choice is currently the Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day-Glow BB Cream. Even though the name might suggest, it has nothing to do with the standard Double Wear foundation, which is very heavy and full coverage. The only similarity is the lasting power. I can wear it all day, even when it's extremely hot (and a bit TMI: I sweat so much on my face haha..). So it is such a genius product for me. The finish is more a light coverage but very glowy. THE summer foundation/BB cream!

I hope you liked my little summary of my summer skincare routine. I would love to hear about your go-to products!
