If you’re gearing up for some summer fun, you’ll want to try these five spa treatments to help you look and feel your best as Hong Kong heats up.

De-greasing cleanser

In the summer heat, a hydrating cleanser just won’t cut it. Instead, look for a gentle cleanser that will help remove excess oil and build-up. Look for words like “mattifying,” “oil-control”.

Lightweight moisturizer

Even if your skin is dry, you simply won’t need a heavy-duty moisturizer in the summer. Try a light cream moisturizer instead, or if your skin is really healthy, maybe just use a good hydrating serum and call it a day. You definitely won’t need a rich night-time cream.

CC Cream

Summer is all about easy, breezy makeup. So ditch the heavy foundation and powders and try a CC cream instead. These hard-working creams provide hydration, broad-spectrum sun protection, and light ingredients that will even your skin tone and eliminate the need for makeup.

Face Mist

If you find yourself getting all hot and bothered while out and about this summer, a good face mist will be just the thing. There are plenty of options out there – we love the mists from Le Roche Posay – but whichever you choose, a quick spritz will cool you down and refresh your skin so you can carry on with your day.


You should definitely be using sunscreen every single day, but it’s an absolute non-negotiable in summer. Look for a broad-spectrum formula that offers both UVA and UVB protection, and choose something with SPF50. If you’re spending a lot of time outdoors, don’t forget to reapply regularly to keep your skin in good condition.
