BEAUTY | Hot Weather Essentials

Summer Beauty Essentials

Moving to Trinidad has meant a big readjustment to my beauty regime. I'm sweating and greasing it up like no tomorrow and my holiday essentials have become my everyday go-tos (yeah, yeah, poor me!). So whether you're planning a winter getaway or live in the tropics like I do, here are my five natural beauty picks for ultimate heat wave survival. 

1. Lavera Organic Fine Loose Mineral Powder: Dust over make up or use alone to combat sweat and shine. #Can'tLiveWithout. 
2. Weleda Moisture Cream for Men: Light moisture for humid days. More on this product here.
3. Kiss My Face Face Factor SPF50 UVA/UVB: Picked this up on a recent trip to Miami and it is a brilliant non-greasy facial sunscreen so light you can use it under makeup.
4. Dr Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate: Light Bronzer that helps my face match the colour of my body (damn all that sunscreen!). Bronzing - not orange - and washes off with cleanser.
5. Hei Poa Monoi Beauty Oil in Pearlised Gold: Traditional Tahitian Monoï Oil with golden mother of pearl shimmer. This has been a holiday favourite of mine for years and I just got some more for Christmas, thanks Mum!

We'll be posting a winter beauty must have list soon too!
