Notes from a Swedish stylist


Getting Ready for Portugal

I can’t believe it’s only two weeks until I’m leaving for Portugal for five weeks The summer holiday is a big thing for me nowadays. My traveling patterned has become different from when I was younger and went on shorter trips for work or pleasure all the time. Nowadays, we tend to stay at home or at least in Sweden during terms, and I never thought I would say it, but I prefer being at home. But then we go big for summer – the last few years we’ve been in Biarritz, surfing and just living an easy life, but this year we’re going to Portugal where my parents have bought an apartment. I’ve heard it’s fantastic, and the surf is good too.

I always start my count down pretty early before we leave, maybe two months… three? Already then, I start thinking about what to bring (actually I think about that all year). I start working out specifically to benefit my surfing (those paddling arms), and I go through routines to prepare my body and my skin for a new setting and a different climate.

One of the routines that I’ve come to love is that of which my long-term collaboration with Skin Treat has allowed me to indulge in. Skin Treat, as you probably know by now, is a 100 percent vegan skincare brand with key active ingredients from organic farming. The products are naturally gentle but at the same time effective.

Right now I enjoy giving special attention to my body by scrubbing, exfoliating and moisturizing. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve never been so close to caring for my body as much as my face as I am right now. I’ve found a routine and it feels great. I’ll be ready for the beach in two weeks.

These are my essentials from Skin Treat right now, click on each product to find them on KICKS.SE.

 

Skin Treat Melting Sugar Body Scrub (200 ml), Skin Treat Perfection Body Elixir (100 ml), Skin Treat Bright Renewal Exfoliating Body Mousse, Skin Treat Instant Hydration Light Body Lotion
