To all sun worshipers, rejoice! Summer is finally here and I’m quite sure most of you have already planned your getaways. But before you bask in the sun, are you ready with your summer beauty essentials? I know, getting a tan is so “in” this season, but you should remember not to sacrifice your skin – ever! Sun exposure can cause age spots, premature skin aging, sunburns, and even skin cancer. I’m not saying that you should avoid the sun and lock ourselves inside your bedrooms. I also love going to the beach to enjoy the sun, sand, and salt water, but skin damage has never been my thing.

summer-essentials Well, Unilever has rounded up their must-have products to help us get that summer ready skin and allow us to enjoy this season. I also added some of my summer beauty essentials.


During summer, it’s better to use less makeup since we sweat more. We get more uneasy when we layer or use lots of products on our face. Therefore, it’s important to have clear and healthy-looking skin so we can refrain from using heavy makeup.

Pond’s Acne Clear White 10-in-1 Facial Wash gently cleanses and calms the skin while zaps blackheads and whiteheads, smoothens roughness, tightens pores, and controls oil. For the men, there’s Pond’s Men Energy Charge Facial Wash to achieve bright, energized skin. Eskinol Facial Deep Cleanser then removes stubborn pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. Pond’s Age Miracle Day Cream protects you against damaging UV rays and aids in the rejuvenation process of skin cells. Pond’s White Beauty Day Cream gives you that rosy white glow through its soothing essences of Korean Ginseng and Saffron. It leaves skin soft and smooth instantly.


Dove Bar provides skin the daily pampering it needs. With its 1/4 moisturizing cream, Dove deeply nourishes and restores skin.


Say goodbye to tan lines with Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion. It has micro-reflectors that make skin 4x fairer instantly, so you don’t have to worry about uneven skin tone. You can read my review about it HERE. Vaseline Water-Based Serum offers SPF 30 PA++ for ultimate sun protection. It’s water-based, meaning it’s not sticky.


Aside from the products above, I never forget to include in my summer beauty essentials Dove Deodorant, Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, and Dove Daily Hair Vitamin.

Of course, summer season means wearing sleeveless or tank tops more often. Our underarms should better be ready as well. Dove Deodorant helps dark spots in the underarms go away even faster. The 1/4 moisturizing cream in it helps underarm skin recover fast from irritation, and darkening caused by hair removal, making the underarm skin whiter and smoother.

During summer, hair needs special care too, just like our skin. Heat can cause hair damage and wearing a hat may not be enough. Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner has Keratin-Actives, a patented hair care technology, that REPAIRS damaged hair and STRENGTHENS it to make it more resilient against future damage. And to protect the hair from heat even further, there’s Dove Daily Hair Vitamin, which I reviewed in THIS POST.


With all these Summer Beauty Essentials, we don’t have to worry about sun-damage. We can now fully enjoy summer while having radiant and healthy skin (and gorgeous hair). Now, are you ready seize the summer? 😀
