SUMMER TIPS | 16-06-2023

Summer tips from our founders

With the warm, sunny days ahead, it's time to adjust our beauty routine and get ready for the radiant season. Whether you're at the beach, attending a summer party or spending an afternoon on the terrace or in the park, this season is your moment to shine. Our Skins Experts will of course lovingly advise you on the best products for an unforgettable summer, but it might be even more fun to get these beauty hacks from a brand's founder.

That is why we asked the ambassadors of some of our brands for their most essential summer tips. After reading this blog, you will know all about must-have sun protection, sparkling fragrance creations and summer-proof make-up. Read on to find out how to adapt your beauty routine to the hot weather, how to give your favourite summer memory a matching scent and how to accentuate your natural beauty this summer.

Bergamot: uplifting and refreshing

When you think of summer, you automatically think of a vibrant summer scent that is guaranteed to turn heads on the terrace. How fun is it when others talk to you about the perfume you wear? We asked Perfumer H founder Lyn about her ultimate signature scent for summer and she didn't have to think long about it. 'Bergamot is an iconic perfume that brings together the sophisticated accents of bergamot with clean aldehydes, petitgrain and lemon. For a mysterious touch, we added warm clove and incense. A citrus perfume, but not too.'

Make-up like a Parisienne

This summer, go for a subtle look inspired by the natural nonchalance Parisiennes have. Westman Atelier's Face Trace Contour Stick in 'Truffle' is perfect for adding more definition to the face. Westman's Marieke recommends applying the Stick high up on the cheekbones for a lifting effect. With the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick in 'Petal', apply a beautiful pink glow to cheeks and lips, working with the fingertips to create a natural look. With the Eye Love You Eye Pencil Kohl Brun, draw subtle freckles on and around the nose for the ultimate summer look.

Seba as a linen spray

Tola Perfumery's Seba Room Spray is not only a beautiful home perfume, but is also great for applying to laundry and bed linen. Create a fresh fragrance experience in your home by first hanging your laundry outside and then misting the spray over it. Accents of aniseed, violet leaf, strawberry and musk give a comfortable and welcome feeling.

Enhance the effect of pheromones with perfume

Give your favourite summer memory a matching fragrance experience with Mmoire's Sur Arize. This soft yet mysterious fragrance consists of a blend that founder Sophie has intuitively put together. Where coconut and lavender provide a French touch inspired by the French village of 'Sur Arize', musk, leather and ambroxan again provide that skin-like effect that will leave you with a seductive impression.

Wake up your body ritual

Danish Bodyologist was born from the need to care for the body in the same way and with the same active ingredients and attention as the face. This women-owned brand understands very well that we like a beauty routine that fits into a busy everyday life. Therefore, wake up your body in the morning with a short ritual, stepping into the shower with the Cream Cleanser Moisturising Body Wash. Stimulate circulation with the Stimulating Body Brush, and after drying off, follow up with the Instant Booster Skin Changing Body Serum and the Skin-Drencher Super Charged Body Lotion. Taking the serum in one palm and the body lotion in the other, you can then use your hands to blend the two formulas and spread them over the body.

Even and protected skin

A protective factor is essential for carefree moments in the sun, but sometimes it doesn't combine so nicely with make-up. Ultra Violette therefore has the Daydream Screen Tinted Veil SPF 50, which works as a tinted moisturiser with protective factor. With this, you achieve two steps in one product and enjoy an even complexion, even by the pool or at the beach. Blend two colours to achieve your ultimate shade, and apply the formula with your fingers for a natural, quick look.
