Timeless Summer Must Haves

Summer time is perfect to relax with your family and friends at the beach. There are a lot of essentials for every age to pack.
We tried to keep it simple, have a look what Jasmin and her daughter Greta pack in their beach bags.

Have you ever thought about to put all the positive summer vibes in a bottle to keep it for a long time? Here we go, the Scent Esprit Summer is like the summer itself. It smells refreshing, flowery and warm like mandarin, apple, jasmine and bitter almond and is the absolute good mood guarantee. And the bottle shines in a sunny yellow  – like the sun.

Sunscreen is essential at every age. It has to be fun too. My favourite one with a mini surfboard floating inside the bottle is the Bum Bum Sun Oil SPF 30 from Sol de Janeiro. It smells like summer with salted caramel and pistachio, makes the skin glowy – and the bottle has a fun design.

Swimming is my finest in summer, but my hair doesn’t like too much sea salt and pool water. Protect it with the Moroccanoil Treatment with Arganoil whenever you get out of the pool which also gives a nice shimmer to the hair.

You cannot have enough pairs of sunglasses. In this season I like big shades in sunny orange, like this one from Bottega Veneta

Big earrings, especially when they come in decorative shapes are nice to wear with your bikinis for an extra bash of colour.

We like the delicate golden earrings with mini pearls by Zara which look like Jasmin Blossoms.

When I think about a summer scent I think about Jil Sander Sun My all-time favourite for hot days is this mixture of bergamot, Orange blossom, Ylang-Ylang and Moschus because it is absolutely timeless. Can you imagine that the first scent which could be put on in the sun is celebrating its 30 Birthday this year? And it is still the market leader and sell almost 1 million pieces per year. No wonder, it is iconic and in this year,  you can buy it in a limited edition in cool white.

Sun protection as its best: For me a sunscreen has to be a real allrounder. Like the Valmont Restoring Perfection SPF 50 . You can apply it like an anti-aging cream in the morning after your serum and it firms, hydrates, repairs and protect your skin.

My perfect ally for a ride by bike to the beach or a day in the sun are good sun glasses. It helps you to see all the lovely summer colors at its best and protects my eyes from too much light and my skin from blinking lines. I love the Serengeti Agata not only because of their classic designs but it also has perfect lenses. The frame is really light ,made from acetate and ultralight mineral glass. And it uses a special technology made for drivers or pilots, perfect to wear all day long .

The best hair dressers in summer are the wind and the sea salt. They create this easy and textured beach look. To add a little help I recommend John Masters in summer cause it gives the hair that extra grit and natural beach waves after a day at the beach. It contains lavender and aloe vera to keep the hair hydrated and shiny.

Add some colour to your bathing suit with bacalit earrings by Hermès, they come in different shapes and colours .
