Stop what you are doing right now and get yourself 2 really important things for the oncoming brighter weather. (I don’t want to say “sunshine” because I don’t want to jinx it.)
The first is a pair of mid-height Teva sandals. I really fancied a pair of these last year and they were sold out everywhere, so like the little pig in the story, I bought mine in February this year. Get yours now. They are on sale at Office and I waited until I had worn them a bit to make sure that they are not ridiculous or uncomfortable and they are neither, they are utterly brilliant with a modern jazzy pattern (Other colours and patterns are available.)
The other thing I recommend to you highly is the Sonia Dakar Face Shield in SPF 30. I don’t like a tinted SPF as in summer I like to go about as bare-faced as possible. The idea of make-up all sliding around and sweating off my big red sweaty face is really unappealing.
So I need an SPF for my face, as I can get burnt in the time it takes for the spring sun to peek out from behind a cloud then go back in again, which isn’t standard body suncream. Even a high-end body sunscreen will give me spots so terrible I will be declared a biohazard by Defra. This facial SPF is an absolute delight, scentless and melting into the skin, leaving a flattering luminous sheen and no white cast. I used it all last summer and was so pleased with it, but couldn’t pass on the recommendation because it was completely sold out. Hurrah, then, for being too organised because it is now back in stock at Cult Beauty.
