Summer, sun and lakeside fun. This year’s summer in Austria feels like you are in a southern country with temperatures above the 30 degree mark for weeks now. I spent a couple of days on some of Austrians beautiful lakes already. Nothing better to get some rest than spending a relaxing day in the sun with occasional water dipping. Although summer is taking a little break right now in Vienna it is not over yet. To protect my skin from harmful effects of UV rays, I’m always wearing skin care products with SPF. While my skin isn’t as sensitive as someone with lighter skin I always be sure to have a high enough SPF and reapply regularly.
My favourites to protect my skin for this summer are the Nivea Protect & Refresh Spray SPF 20 protects my skin and is water resistant. But what I really love is that it really cools your skin when you spray it on and doesn’t leave some oily residue on the.
What I’m also using since spring is the La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV Intense Legere Moisturizer SPF 20 on my face. It hydrates my dry skin and is the perfect base before applying foundation.
Last but not least, I keep buying the KIKO Cosmetics Kiss Balm SPF 15 when summer arrives. Yes, you should also pay attention to your lips when exposed to sun. The balm protects my lips, smells like sitting on the beach drinking straight out of a coconut and makes my lips soft but not sticky.
