Health & Wellness | Summertime: The Best Products for After-Sun Care


Have been the luckiest person to have a few sunny days away in Biarritz in this rainy month of May, where the Atlantic Ocean offered me a few days of good waves, enough to get the taste of what surfing is about and how it makes you feel. Though it was mostly cloudy while in the water, I did managed to get my face burnt by the sun (even though I used SPF 50). Since I've been back in Paris, my full attention has been on helping my skin recover. Have been using lots of lotions and potions to achieve this goal, but only a few have made a difference, so I thought it might a good idea to share these with you since summer is around the corner (hopefully).
