Welcome summer with open arms!

Accueillir l'été à bras ouverts!

The summer season is knocking at our doors; the weather is warming up, the days are getting longer and we all want to make the most of it. To be ready for the arrival of summer, here are some tips and suggestions to make these beautiful days even more enjoyable!

Remember to protect your skin

In fact, it's a reflex that we should have all year round, because prolonged exposure to UV rays causes skin damage, winter and summer alike. In any case, since we generally spend more time in the sun during the summer, it is essential to obtain adequate sunscreen. This means it must have an SPF of at least 30 and block both UVA and UVB rays. TheAttitude company offers a wide variety of sunscreens that meet these requirements. In cream or stick, with or without perfume, for sensitive skin, for the face, for children... the choice is vast!

Even if you are careful, no one is immune to sunburn. An essential to have is after-sun care, which will bring relief to the skin. This product will also help nourish, moisturize and soothe the burn in addition to aiding healing. At Belle à Croquer , there is an after-sun cream made from aloe, shea butter and calendula. On the side of Runak , it is an after-sun oil that we are offered. The latter is made with aguaje fruit oil, which has soothing and antioxidant properties and promotes cell regeneration and tanning.

Refresh your summer wardrobe

No more long sleeves and overly warm fabrics, put away winter clothes to make room for your summer wardrobe. It is often at this moment that we realize that such a garment has become too worn or that another is no longer our size. If you plan to get some new clothes this year, theAnnie 50 brand has launched Romance in Florence , its spring-summer 2022 collection which perfectly embodies the beautiful season. Organic prints, refreshing colors and light and comfortable fabrics; difficult to choose only one song!

Who says summer also says swimsuit! There are some very beautiful ones at Selfish Swimwear , all made by hand, usually from recycled fabric. Colors and patterns are available in different designs and cuts, and sizes go up to XL, sometimes even XXL. Among the selection, there is sure to be the perfect swimsuit that will make you feel comfortable and confident.

Accessories should not be overlooked to complete her summer look. To clear your hair on days that are too hot, the Trésar company offers a wide range of accessories, including pretty colorful and flowery twist headbands . And to bring a nice summer touch, the Daisy Earrings from This Ilk are ideal and will attract attention.

Don't forget the essentials!

With heat also comes perspiration. To avoid odors, two Quebec companies each have their own natural, aluminum-free and eco-responsible deodorant in their product line. The RoseCitron Coconut Pineapple Roll-On Cream Deodorant has a tropical scent perfect for the season and the glass bottle can be taken to a bulk store to be refilled. In the form of a stick, the Palmarosa and Coconut Natural Deodorant from Biocosmétiques Ocha Organica also smells very good and its container is recyclable and compostable.
