It’s summer! I’m finally on summer vacation and I plan to enjoy it fully with lots of trips to the beach, long walks in my favorite places, a few travels, tons of good food, and hanging out with all the people who mean the most to me 😀
To have the best possible summer there are some things that you need, and here is my list of summer essentials!
- Sunscreen at least SPF 30:
I am so fair that I burn super easily… But even if you don’t burn easy, the UV rays from the sun is still so damaging to your skin that this is one thing you just can’t forego! Don’t risk skin cancer or early aging – so just do it, it is so worth it in the end!
- Smooth and shiny spray by Sunsilk:
I love spending time in the sun, and it lightens my hair, which I also love, unfortunately, the sun, and the saltwater from trips to the ocean, dries my hair out, and I use this spray to prevent the drying and breakage.
I love lip glosses and I think they are perfect for summer because they add a little shine and freshness! At the moment I’m obsessed with this one lipgloss from Revolution, it’s called “Makeup Amazing Lipgloss Coral”, it has a nice scent, it adds a little color and shine, and it doesn’t dry out my lips! Perfect for everyday use and very summery.

- Lucas’ Papaw Ointment:
The first time I tried this ointment you couldn’t buy it outside of Australia, but I had a friend bring it to me, and I fell in love instantly! Now you can get it on Amazon as well (Lucas’ Papaw Ointment – Amazon) and I never leave my house without it!
I use it as a lip balm, and it keeps my lips hydrated and happy, I also use it when I get insect bites as it helps to stop the itching, and the list of uses goes on and on!
I know that you should never let yourself get burned, but it happens from time to time, and then aftersun is your best friend! I usually use one with aloe vera and no perfume. I actually use aftersun every time I’ve been outside in the sun, even if I didn’t burn, because I like how it hydrates my skin.
Sunglasses are the perfect accessory and they protect your eyes at the same time! Can you say win-win?
- All-purpose moist wipes:
These types of wipes are so handy! They are great if like me you are a little clumsy and spill ice cream or coffee almost on a daily basis. They are also great for “washing” your hands or anything else.
Whatever the case I never leave my house without them 😉
- Water, water, and more water:
These are some of my most important summer essentials, both for when I’m home in Denmark and for when I’m traveling. What are your summer essentials? I’m always on the lookout for new amazing products, and right now, I’m looking for a great summer fragrance, so if you have recommendations, let me know 😀
Lots of love, Anne
