No matter what happens around us, staying hopeful and positive is key, and so is taking care of our skin. Summer is fast approaching and the temperature is rising. So the first thing we think of in this case is our skin, and living in the Gulf certainly calls for a change in our skincare routine. During the summer, our complexion is not as dry as it is during the winter and it tends to get a little bit oily – at least mine does! Knowing that lighter textures are best for hot seasons, I tested 5 products that I loved and here are my thoughts.

First of all, I opted for Dior’s Capture Totale C.E.L.L. Energy Super Potent Serum which I apply at night after cleaning my face. Well, now I know the true meaning of a firm, plumped, even, smoothed and radiant skin!

Masks are a very important part of my skincare routine and nothing made my skin feel fresher and more moisturized than Givenchy’s Blanc Divin Brightening Fresh Moisture Mask. Besides making it plump and smooth, it left my complexion unified and bright.

In the morning, before applying my makeup, I usually love me some day cream and CHANEL’s Le Lift Crème Fine was the best fit for my skin’s summer needs. Since my complexion doesn’t get too dry during this season, this light cream is everything!

Summer also calls for a stronger sunscreen and for that, I’ve always loved Sisley Paris’ Super Soin Solaire Facial Sun Care SPF 50+ to fully protect my skin against UVA and UVB rays and keep my skin feeling and looking as youthful as ever.

Finally, before applying my makeup, a face primer is a must as my skin tends to be oily during summer. Therefore, I tried Guerlain’s new L’Essentiel Shine Control Primer and let me tell you, this one is a game-changer!
