The Perfect Summer Care Routine

The Perfect Summer Care Routine

Please note: This post is sponsored in friendly cooperation with ShopApotheke.

Who else currently loves to spend the free time outside? Summer is finally here and our skin is exposed to the sun a lot. Nearly everyone wants a bright, tanned skin tone and a healthy, beautiful skin. Too much sun exposure can be dangerous, but with the right products you can protect and nourish your skin! In friendly cooperation with ShopApotheke I created a list with six essential sun care products that build the perfect summer care routine.


The sun really has a positive effect on us, its warm sunrays are giving us the perfect amount of vitamin D and release feelings of happiness that make us feel better immediately. They also provide us with the perfect skin tone. But, like always, it’s about the dose, the right protection and the right skin care. First, you should determine your skin type (you can do this for example here) and then search for the right products. Something that’s important for every skin type is the classical sun protection that is available in lots of different options like oil, spray or lotion. The indicated sun protection factor, multiplied with the self-protection time, shows you how much time (in minutes) you can spend in the sun without getting a sunburn. You can get more information here.
It’s best to protect your skin with a SPF all over the year, because the UV rays are getting through the clouds, even in winter. If you don’t want to use the classical sun protection you can use a compact make-up with integrated sun protection factor.
Together with the sun protection for your body it is also recommended to use a sun protection for your lips, because they are the most sensitive part of your body. To refresh your skin on hot days so-called thermal water sprays were invented to vitalize your skin and protect it from free radicals. You can even use it over your make-up! You can get these thermal water sprays for example from La Roche Posay.
The skin care after the sun exposure is just as important as during the sun exposure, therefore the so-called after sun skin care is the perfect way to end your summer skin care routine. The skin gets cooled and also hydrated, the two best ways to keep your awesome tan!
With the right summer skin care you can achieve the perfect summer skin tone!

    Toller Post! Für mich ist Sonnenschutz gerade im Sommer ein absolutes Muss, da ich sehr empfindliche Haut habe. Von den Produkten die du vorgestellt hast, habe ich bisher noch keins getestet aber mich würde da vor allem das Öl interessieren, weil ich mir das mit dem Pumpspender sehr praktisch vorstelle:) Ich persönlich mag den Labello ‘Sun Protect’ ganz gerne oder diese Sun Dance Reihe aus dem DM:)

    Liebe Grüße!:)

    Das Thermalwasser ist echt gut. Ich bin ein furchtbar hitzeanfälliges Mädchen und brauche dringend eine Abkühlung und wenn grad kein Meer in der Nähe ist, muss die halt aus der Handtasche kommen. Schöner Post!
