SCANDINAVIAN SPRING & SUMMER ESSENTIALS

Since warmer weather is approaching, I thought it was time to share a few Scandinavian Spring & Summer essentials with you.

First up, the most important essential for spring and summer in my eyes is a good sunscreen. The Scandinavian brand NUORI has a new series of Mineral Defence sunscreens with all natural formulas and proven anti-aging results – perfect right? I have been using and loving their Mineral Defence Sunscreen Face & Body as well as the Mineral Defence Sunscreen Water Resistant version, which both have high protection and SPF 30. They are made from fragrance-free formulas suitable for all ages and skin types, including sensitive skin.

These luxurious, all-natural sunscreens are easy to apply for a seamless finish. They also offer multiple skincare benefits: antioxidant protection that boosts skin’s own defence mechanism, and detoxifies the skin. Perfect for daily wear, and the water resistant version is a great choice for outdoor sports, pool, and at the beach. Since I live in Italy it tends to be very hot and humid in the summer, and knowing I have a daily protection that won’t disappear when I sweat is great.

When the weather changes, my lips always need a little extra care and I have found the NUORI Lip Treat Copenhagen to be highly moisturising with a lightweight texture that helps nourish and soften my dry, dehydrated lips. This lip treat has a peach-coloured blend of natural hydrating wonders that gives your lips an effortlessly polished look, inspired by the cool and contemporary city of Copenhagen.

Another important essential is a pair of cool Scandi chic sunglasses. I have collated a selection below with some new finds from Scandinavian brands that I think you will love:

In a year like 2021, another essential we all seem to have in our handbags these days is a hand sanitiser (but this is something I think I will keep using even post pandemic times…) I always keep this Take Care Hand Sanitiser from Designletters in my bag, a must-have on-the-go or for travels! Also bonus points for looking cute – you can get it in different colours with a variety of words on like ‘love’ and ‘hello’. The hand-bag sized dispenser can contain 20 ml, and the box includes a 100 ml hand sanitizer with a neutral fragrance you can use to refill.

Lastly, to get the Scandi look another essential is a hand-bag. Here are a few of my current favourites:
