So when the seasons change we all want to change up our routines, skin and hair care and make up. So I thought I would just go through the main changes for me.

So I'll start with skin care:

My main change is definitely mouisturiser, in summer it is warmer and because I have combination skin it can go a little oily. Therefore a heavy mouisturiser isn't always an option. So what I like to do is use a light one, Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Shine Control Day mouisturiser, this is a gel so it really does help if you have oilier skin. It also has really great ingredients in to help treat spots. Then if I notice my skin is feeling dry, I usually get this around my nose, I will put on a good sized amount of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. Now this is super oily and mouisturising so there is no way I would do this in the day time, but once a week at night it just helps to not let my skin dry out. It is also great for any sunburn, so even better for summer!
I have also used my Tea Tree Cleanser and Toner more and my Clearisil Ultra Blemish and Marks Cleanser less as the Clearisil cleanser actually makes the skin a little more sensitive to the sun so I don't want to risk it.

For hair:

My hair routine hasn't really changed that much. I have just been using a little more dry shampoo as I have found that my hair likes to stick to my head from sweat, not all the time (obviously) but if it's been hot and I've been wearing a hat... I have been loving Batiste Blush XXL, it gives you loads of volume.

Make Up:

So I like to go much lighter when it's hot, as I hate the idea of my make up melting off my face. It just makes me feel stressed. So for base I'm usually going to just wear my Urban Decay Naked Skin or Max Factor Xperience (which I believe they have stopped making :( ). Both of these foundations are very light and have sheer coverage but you can build them up and they last well. They also feel like skin, so it's like you've got nothing on. I also have been loving stains/creams for the cheeks. I feel like powders are just going to disappear super quick. Eyes, I just usually wear waterproof mascara or my Benefit Bad Gal, it is beautiful! 

So that is my summer change up, do you change your routines?

See you soon, Love Allie x x x x
