My Beauty To-Do List for a Great Summer

Summer is here and vacation implies the beach, sunbathing, swimming in the clear waters of the Mediterranean, and lazing in Provence... This year again you’ve decided to fill up on sun, and you're right. But to enjoy its benefits without the risk of damaging the beauty of your skin and your hair, follow our beauty routine.

Step 1: Get Prepared

Before flying off to distant lands, an idyllic beach or poolside, prepare your skin. Remove dead skin cells; your skin will not only be brighter, but also better prepared to tan and absorb hydration treatments.

Favorite products: L'Occitane Almond Shower Scrub cleanses and gently exfoliates (1).

Step 2: Cover Up!

It can never be said enough: a well-protected skin is a healthy skin. And applying sunscreen does not prevent tanning, no, no! It helps prevent sunburn and premature skin aging (wrinkles, sun spots, loss of elasticity...).

Favorite products: L’Occitane Jenipapo Body Duo body oil (SPF 15) and Face Veil (SPF 30) (2).

Step 3: Make the Pleasure Last

Your best souvenir would be to keep your tan and radiant complexion until September? It's possible! Provided you moisturize your skin well. Preferably choose a treatment rich in Shea Butter, a product renowned for its many healing, hydrating and soothing properties.

Favorite products: For the body: Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream (3); For the face: Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream and Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Scrub (4)

Step 4: SOS Hair Repair

Your hair may become jealous of all your attention to your face and body. Don’t forget that it is also put to the test by the sun’s harmful rays, seawater, and the heat of Provence! To maintain its brilliance throughout your holiday, why not give it a beauty treatment.

Favorite products: L'Occitane Repairing Shampoo (5) Repairing Conditioner for dry and damaged hair, Repairing Mask, Repairing Hair Oil and L’Occitane Control Styling Prep Cream and Control Mist with 5 Essential Oils.
