I’m sure you’re already aware of the importance of protecting your skin from the sun in Summertime. But there’s a bit more to it than just buying any old sun lotion and putting it on your face and body. Just as you’d take care what products you use in your usual skincare routine, it’s also important to do the same when it comes to choosing your sun protection products. However, it can be quite overwhelming trying to figure out which products to choose that will protect your skin, but won’t cause breakouts. But this guide will make it a whole lot easier for you. Let’s begin with a few simple things you need to think about first before you go and spend your hard earned cash on products.
If you’ve been following my Instagram feed lately, you’ll have noticed that I recently treated myself to some gorgeous Lavender and Citronella essential oils.

So for part one of my Skincare Essentials Series, I asked expert aromatherapist Julie Leonard to share with us some of her favourite Essential Summer Oils, what they can be used for, and how we can incorporate these into our skincare routine. These tips are AMAZING! So let’s dive in straight away to Julie’s Ultimate Guide to Essential Summer Oils.

Read on to find out why this is not entirely the case and what type of mascara IS the answer.
