Here is a summer beauty story I wrote for Sweden’s coolest magazine, STYLEBY. It ran on their new website, which -is in English and is definitely worth a gander. Make the most out of the last days of summer and up your beauty game. I chatted with some of my favorite beauty babes about their warm weather beauty essentials:


After months of dry skin, cashmere throws and motorcycle boots it’s time to swap out winter basics for warm weather essentials. Tis’ the season of summer beauty. We tapped some of our favourite beauty editors about their picks for the season. These are the eight body products that get experts through summer looking absolutely gorgeous.

Sisley Super Soin Solaire Facial Sun Care and Herve Herau La Pommade
“I’ll be going to an Italian island this summer. I am bringing my favourite sunscreen. It is Sisley because the herbal smell is different from the usual summer scent and I love it. For after sun I use La Pommade from Herve Herau.”


Alexandra Tunell, Senior Digital Beauty Editor, Harper’s BAZAAR (US)
Oui Shave Bikini Body Ingrown Hair Serum
“This summer I’m headed to Stockholm, Southampton for the occasional weekend and then home to L.A. When it comes to summer beauty I’m cursed with the worst ingrowns, so I’m always treating irritated skin with glycolic peel pads, which sting and can be really drying. This natural serum is gentle but potent—it has salicylic acid, exfoliating AHAs and brightening vitamin C—so I could throw on a bikini without any notice.”

O Way Fabulous Body Oil
“The body care product l cannot live without this summer, is Fabulous Body Oil from O Way. I am a big user of oils, and first tested this last year. I absolutely loved it because of its pureness and texture. It literarily melts into my skin without leaving a sticky residue. It contains Tamanu oil, which Polynesian women have used on their hair, and skin for decades. l’m going on a road trip in the USA this summer with my boyfriend, and I’m planning on sunbathing and being out a lot. A good body oil is the best nourishment my sun kissed skin can get. And l also use it in my hair to prevent the ends from drying out.”

Nkd Skn Pre-Shower Tanner
“A product so genius you wonder why it’s never been done before. Apply this gloopy tanner to dry skin (no need to wait, freezing in the shower for three minutes like some others), put your dinner in the oven and scroll through Instagram for ten minutes and then shower it off. The clever formula continues developing for the next four hours. No more stained sheets. Easy Gisele-like limbs.”

 Anja Skeppe Grahn, Beauty Editor, STYLEBY (SWE)
St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Everyday Body Lotion
“My favourite summer body product is St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion. Usually I’m not a big fan of tanning products (fake tan tends to look really unnatural on me). But this one– I love! My legs are incredibly pale and this lotion gives them an instant glow with just the right amount of colour. It evens out my skin really nicely. I also love that it’s quick drying so it doesn’t stain my clothes.

Julie Levoyer, Beauty Director, STYLIST (FR)
Filorga Neocica
“I never leave Paris without some tubes of Neocica. The formula is super restorative. It’s originally made to help the skin recover after a medical intervention like laser or peeling. The texture is rich but light and melts well. It’s a super after sun treatment for the face and body. I use it immediately when I get back from the beach and also as a night cream and a lip balm. It’s super helpful when you have a sunburn. Just let it harden and it will repair everything! This summer I’m going to Greece: Athens, Corfu and the other Ionian islands. I know I’m going to be in the sun full time, swimming in the delightful azure sea. Neocica will save my skin from heat, UV and salt.”


Megan McIntyre, Beauty Features Director, Refinery29 (US)
Sun Bum Sunscreen Lotion SPF50
“I am fastidious about UV protection. When you’re both very fair and on retinols, you don’t mess around with the sun. I hate the feel that many body sunscreens have — greasy skin is not my jam — but this gorgeous lotion from Sun Bum gives you all of the protection with none of the slip. It goes on thick but sinks into the skin immediately and leaves behind a soft, almost powdery feeling. I wear this at the beach, for sure, but I also slap some on any exposed skin on any exposed skin on a daily basis. I even keep a travel size bottle in my purse for midday touchups.”


Sarah Jossel, Beauty Editor, The Sunday Times Style (UK)
This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle
“I love This Works Perfect Legs. The texture smooths into my skin in a flash and is a fail-safe for an instant, even, subtle golden glow.”
