Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Drinking plenty of pure water is essential, as well as “eating” your water by including water-packed fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and cucumbers, in your diet.

Switch from heavy creams to lightweight lotions and mists

They’ll still get the job done but keep you feeling cool. Try Acqua Magnifica, a weightless non-sticky moisturising body mist with soothing vitamin-enriched floral essences.

Treat skin before bathing/showering

Before you even step into the bath or shower, apply a thin coat of a nourishing body oil, such as Princess Vicky oil, all over the body. This protects skin from the drying effects of water so you can skip the moisturiser post-shower.

Avoid the hottest hours of the day

We know that’s not always possible so when you must brave the hottest hours, clothing in light, natural fabrics like sheer linen or cotton, a good mineral sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat are all musts.

Use fresh green scents to cool your space

Fresh scents, such as Estate, with fresh herbs, woods, ginger and citrus, or Erbe Aromatiche, a fresh picked bunch of Tuscan herbs, infuse cool into every environment making them ideal scents for hot weather. The fact that no alcohol or chemical solvents are used in their natural formulas helps a great deal, as they keep the air indoors fresh and light- just as it should be.
