We're All Going on a Summer Holiday...

Summer’s fast approaching and if you’re diligent about your skincare routine, it’s time to put away those winter products and change to lighter summer products. Here’s a select few that FashionGeek recommends:
Oily Skin
Instead of using a facial cream which will just lead to more build-up to your skin, try using the Aesop Fabulous Face Oil. It may seem a bit counter-intuitive to be putting oil in your skin during humid weather but trust me, this baby penetrates into your skin very quickly and will hydrate your skin while leaving you without that greasy feeling.

Combination Skin
Guerlain’s Super Aqua Serum is my absolute favourite to use. It is a bit on the pricey side but I’ve found that it hydrates the dry patches beautifully while not clogging up the T-zone area.

Dry skin
If your skin tends to be on the dry side, check out Clarins’ HydraQuench Rich Cream. During the summer, it might be a bit too rich (unless you have very dry skin) so be sure to only use a small dollop and adding more as needed.

Aesop: Available at Lane Crawford
Guerlain: Available at Lane Crawford, Harvey Nichols 
Clarins: Available at Clarins (Yes I know this is a bit stupid to put in but for consistency's sake I included this line)

Guerlains and Clarins are also available at for a cheaper price (Guerlain’s Super Aqua Serum retails for HK$1,400, on YesStyle it’s HK$1,178)
