Okoko Cosmetiques Trésor Summer Mist
For me there is nothing more important in skincare than protecting it from the sun’s damaging rays so I want to continue to share my skin care essentials as summer arrives.
I will say that although we are more aware of the suns damage during summer, we ought to be protecting our skin from it all year round. Obtaining your daily Vitamin D intake only requires 15 minutes of sun exposure in non peak hours during the morning and evening. It is important to always keep exposed skin protected to help prevent premature skin ageing but more importantly to be proactive in reducing skin damage that can lead to skin cancer.
This is why Okoko’s Trésor Summer Mist has become one of my favourite skincare products for sun protection.
We all like to keep our skin refreshed during the hot summer months and this facial mist delivers that but also does so much more. Okoko Cosmetiques strives to always deliver advanced skin care to address specific skincare concerns and this product is no exception. The unique composition and blend of antioxidants and rare botanical actives makes this a multitasking powerhouse that goes beyond basic hydration and works perfectly together with your mineral based sunscreens to boost protection for your skin from UV and Infrared damage. Although it isn’t talked about as often, IRA damage is something to watch out for as we learn more abouts it’s harmeful effects on our health and skin when over exposed. The formula is based on the 4 potent actives of Lycopene, Green Tea, Edelweiss and the exceptionally rare ingredient of Venuceane which is from a micro algae ferment. Venuceane is actually heat activated so as the sun is hitting your skin, the protection against UV and IRA rays is increased!
Clinical studies have also shown that using Venuceane improves the cohesion between skin cells after continuous use and helps to reinforce the cutaneous barrier revealing a more resilient complexion.
Another great function for Trésor Summer Mist is to refresh and set your makeup. I recommend to use it in combination with a more natural mineral based makeup, as it’s more gentle on your skin and provides even more UV protection with Zinc or Titanium Dioxide. Since I began using this mist last summer I found that it does an amazing job of setting my mineral foundation, and it gives it a glowing and luminous finish which looks fantastic for hours! While there are plenty of mists and makeup setting sprays on the market, this one stands out for its sensual aroma and skin improving properties. I like that the mist goes on lightly and can be used throughout the day to provide nourishment with aloe vera cucumber and carrot extracts. The several antioxidants in these plant based ingredients all help to promote healthy skin cell renewal while fighting free radical damage.
If you have been out in the sun this mist will also provide exceptional soothing benefits when used afterwards and will calm any irritation or redness from overexposure to the sun.
I have this in my purse at all times throughout the whole year when I can, and it makes me feel confident that I am providing my skin the best protection and nourishment possible when I add this to my beauty routine.

A micro algae ferment that has been clinically proven to reduce the damage to skin cells caused by UVA, UVB and IRA rays. It protects against radiation damage to DNA, skin tissues and cells and also increases hydration retention when exposed to harsh elements such as heat. This rare algae ingredient has the unique ability to increasingly protect against sun damage as it is activated by heat and it also contains potent anti inflammatory properties.
Green Tea Leaf Extract
The power and potency of this plant based ingredient comes from photochemicals called catechin antioxidants which are proven to be an effective anti inflammatory for skin. Green Tea leaf also neutralizes free radical damage caused by the sun which helps reduce fine lines and dehydration.
A flower that is part of the daisy family has been shown to have several compounds that are both soothing and reduce irritation and inflammation. It contains Chlorogenic acid, Luteolin and Beta Sitosterol which deliver flavonoids and protect against environmental stressors.
