Since I spend a lot of time outdoors, my skin tends to get pretty dry during summer. Sometimes I also become more dehydrated as the temperature rises, which can affect my skin’s appearance. Thus, I need a different beauty routine during the warmer months.


Keep your skin hydrated

Our favorite parts of summer might be the warm weather and sunshine, but too much sun can zap skin and hair of their natural moisture. Because our skin produces more oil, some people forget to moisturize too, which is a big mistake. Heat makes us perspire more and lose moisture.

Thus, it is very important to re-hydrate our skin by applying a lightweight, water-based moisturizer with a more gel-like quality. I would like to introduce my current favorite skincare product for the summer months.

Vichy Minéral 89

I am a huge fan of the Vichy beauty series. The products are all allergy tested, paraben & fragrance free. One of my favorite products is the Vichy Minéral 89.  It makes me discover my skin’s daily dose of strength, combining 15 Mineral Rich Water with Hyaluronic Acid to fortify skin and make it more resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin, and fatigue. Minéral 89 face moisturizer, with 89% Mineralizing Thermal Water, delivers a boost of hydration for a vibrant, healthy glow. I really LOVE it and take it along my travels.

One special tip: Make sure to always compare prices before buying it in oder to save up some money, since skincare products are not cheap. For example, right now, the Vichy Minéral 89 is available at a reduced price at

The benefits: Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid binds moisture to skin, holding up to 1000 times its weight to plump and hydrate skin. Mineral 89 is a lightweight, fast-absorbing 100% transparent face moisturizer. Non-greasy. Non-sticky. Non-shiny.

Application: Simply apply 2 drops of hyaluronic acid moisturizer on your skin after cleansing morning and evening. Use as a regular face moisturizer on its own or as the first step of your skincare/makeup routine. Spread with outward movements from the middle of the face, without applying too much pressure.

Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water, rich in 15 minerals

Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer combines the highest concentration of Vichy Mineralizing thermal water with Hyaluronic acid to enhance long term hydration, essential for healthy skin. Formulated with the most restricted list of ingredients to make the formula extremely safe and very well tolerated.

The Vichy Minéral 89 is clinically proven to:
• Enhance the skin’s barrier function
• Restore pH value and reinforce immune defense
• Stimulate antioxidant defenses.

My opinion: It is a lightweight, fast-absorbing translucent booster. Absorbs quickly leaving the skin feeling comfortable, softer and hydrated. Can apply makeup immediately after application. Non-greasy, non-sticky and non-shiny. All skin types benefit from Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer. It can be easily included in any beauty regimen after cleansing and before your usual serum and/or moisturizer.
