Boost with moisture – all day My skin often feels dry after a day of sun and sea water. To avoid that tight feeling, I always bring mymoisturising facial mistto the beach. It instantly refreshes and moisturises the skin with extracts from Peach Leaf, Raspberry and Cucumber.
Multifunctional SPF You no longer have to choose between good sun protection or great looking skin. There are a lot of new high tech SPFs on the market that combines high protection with both color and caring ingredients. This onefrom Dr Dennis Gross contains SPF40 which protects against both UVA and UVB radiation, evens out the skin tone and gives it a nice, healthy glow.
Keep you Overnight Mask in the fridge If you still end up with a sunburn, try to rehydrate your skin properly and help it to recover. Treatment overnight repair maskis a repairing night mask which through independent studies has been shown to improve skin cell rejuvenation, at the same time as it softens and calms the skin. Store your Overnight Mask in the fridge during warm summer days for an extra cooling effect.
Double cleanse When it comes to keeping my skin fresh, cleansing is always my A, B and C. Sunscreen and sweat can make my skin feel clogged and impure, so to make sure I get rid of it all I like to cleanse my skin in two steps. I use my foaming cleansing facial washto work up a nice lather and wash my face, after that I sweep a facial tonerover face and neck, to get the last traces of product and restore the skin’s pH-balance.
Don’t forget your lips! Your lips are very delicate and needs protection from the sun just as much as any other part of your body – if not more. A sun stick or a lip gloss with SPF is a great way to both moisturise and prevent chapped and dry lips.
Amp up your Antioxidants Antioxidants are key during summer, and there are tons of ways to work them into your routine. Our moisturising serum contains both Antioxidants, which protects the skin from free radicals and premature skin ageing, and Hyaluronic acid, which boosts your skin with well-needed moisture. Don’t forget to fill up on antioxidants from the inside as well. My favorite sources during summer are blackberries, raspberries and blueberries.
Café. Sthlm brunch Club lis located by a beautiful park in Vasastan and serves breakfast all day. They don’t take any reservations so be prepared to come early to get a table outdoors. @sthlmbrunchclub_
Restaurant. Köpmantorget in Old Town is a new favourite of mine. It’s a quaint little square a bit off the most touristy streets where the restaurants’ outdoor settings unfold along the cobbled streets. My favourite spots are Grill Ruby, Österlånggatan 17 and Bistro Pastis.
Special place. Rosendal’s Garden is an oasis located at Djurgården in Stockholm. Stroll among the flowers, apple trees and plantations, buy some home-made jam in the Garden shop and enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry at the café. Rosendalsvägen 38, Djurgården.
Juice bar. Juiceverket at Odenplan is one of my regular spots. I always order the Asklepios Health Sumo with extra ginger that is said to be good for your health. Norrtullsgatan 21, Vasastan.
SPA. CA & Company is a new beauty salon at Södermalm run by my amazing friend Annelie Englund. Book an appointment for a relaxing massage, a manicure or a tailor made facial with Emma S. products! Folkungagatan 89, Södermalm.
Shopping. If you want to get as much shopping done in as little time as possible you should head to Biblioteksstan. The stores are lined up closely and you’ll find a great mix of high-end and budget, Swedish and international brands. My favourite stops are By Marlene Birger, & Other Stories and Filippa K.
Museum. I love photo art and Fotografiska always has fantastic shows. This summer I’m going to see “The picture of Greta Garbo” and Bryan Adam’s exhibition “Exposed”. The Modern Museum also has an amazing exhibition signed Yayoi Kusama right now, which is as amusing for grown-ups as for children. Stadsgårdshamnen 22, Södermalm and Skeppsholmen.
