Your summer attunement from CONTENT is a holistic guide to help you align body and mind with the season. While sunshine and longer days make us very ‘content’, they also make us full of energy. In fact, according to Chinese medicine, this is the most ‘yang’ time of the year meaning it has an outward expression of energy, movement and activity. So before you jet off for your summer holiday, get our tips to sustain these months of long nights and turned up temperatures.
Summer Beauty Attunement
The turn of the season often calls for a skincare upgrade. For summer, we’re switching to season-specific skincare, meaning that we’re never without mineral-based sunscreens to prevent sun damage, we’re updating to lighter moisturisers, and adding some bright colours to our organic make-up kit, while also brushing up on body rituals and products. As a night treatment, we have incorporated the seasonal de Mamiel Summer Facial Oil, which is formulated to protect skin during the warmer months.
