My Must Have Spring Essentials

my must have spring essentials
Hi Lovelies!
Its finally Spring 'WOOHOO' and its about time too! I am sure the winter this year was too long and too cold that I am so thankful that the sun is now shining and the days are longer and warmer. Seeing as the weather has changed 'thankfully haha' so has some of the essentials, hence this post on my must have spring essentials .

One major thing that changes for me is the SPF on the sunscreen I use, its very important to wear sunscreen on sunny days and even more so in the spring and summer months. I always buy SPF 30 as I like to wear a higher protection sunscreen. My skin can get quite dry so I like to keep myself moisturised to keep my skin and lips soft. I like to read all year round but you know in the spring summer months to me its more relaxing reading in the sunshine. Last thing but also important to me in a light and summery fragrances, I love fruity fragrances in the spring and summer months.

I love reading all year round but reading in the spring and summer months for me is just the best. I like to read in the garden when its nice and sunny, its so relaxing especially teamed up with some lemonade.

We all know the importance of wearing sunscreen and for me its important to wear it all year round but in the spring and summer months I wear a higher SPF to keep my skin protected. I like to buy it in spray form as its easier for me to apply and also to put on my husband because he always forgets to apply it.

When the sun is shining its always best wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, I just love these sunglasses from Primark because they look so retro and match my style perfectly.

  Lip Scrub
In the summer my skin tends to go dry especially my lips so I always wear a lip scrub before I wear a lipstick, Lush Bubble gum lip scrub is my favourite as it keeps my lip hydrated and has the most lovely candy floss taste 'yummy'.

As I said above my skin can get quite dry so to keep it at bay I moisturise once or twice a day to keep my skin feeling soft and smelling amazing, my favourite moisturiser has to be soap and glory the righteous butter! it smells beautiful and lasts for ages, I have had mine for nearly a year now and its still going strong.

I am not a major perfume wearer but in the summer I like to wear light fruity fragrances as to me that match in with the weather perfectly. My favourite has to be from The Body Shop and its Grapefruit body mist, it smells very fruity and lasts all day.

I know this list wont count for everyone but it happens to be my favourite things in the spring. I have a few more favourites but the post would be super long but you get the idea with this post hopefully.

What are you favourite Spring Essentials?
