Summertime is a chance to enjoy some sunshine in the outdoors. Whether, camping, swimming, biking or days at the beach with friends — have your skin summer ready by revamping your skincare products to suit the season. Since nobody really wants to have on a full face of makeup in the hot summer sun, we’ve got some must have products to get summer ready skin that will look flawless and well hydrated so you can enjoy the great outdoors this summer, without worrying about how your skin looks.
When trying to achieve flawless skin, your face wash definitely plays a huge roll in having a clear face. A dirty face is really harmful to your skin — wrinkles, breakouts and dull skin are a few disadvantages to not keeping a clean face. We recommend a moisturizing face wash for the hot summer months — moisture is important when the heat rises. One of our favorite cleaners is the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm, a face wash that leaves your face makeup free and clean without feeling stripped of moisture.
My most favorite part of taking care of my skin is after washing it, slathering on moisturizer —ahhhh…. Moisture is truly the #1 key to maintaining radiant skin long past your twenties. When choosing a moisturizer for the summertime, it’s not necessary to go with a super expensive one. One of my all time favorites and even my friends favorites is CeraVe. It’s inexpensive, provides 24hr moisture and it’s even recommended by dermatologists — win! Grab you a jar for under $15 at Wal-Mart.
If not more, SPF is no doubt as equally important as moisturizer. Keep your skin protected from the sun’s harmful rays by using a good sunscreen. My personal choice would be SHISEIDO Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 For Face or another favorite is the 18oz Supergoop! with Broad spectrum SPF 50, which is perfect to slather all over your face and body before hitting the outdoors.
I fully stand behind having a separate cream for your eye area as being very important in maintaining beautiful skin. Your eyes are so delicate, sensitive and unfortunately they are where most of your age and stress begin to show the most. Don’t worry though, when properly taken care of you can have youthful, bright eyes for years and years to come. When looking for eye products, once again moisture is everything. A go to eye product and one highly recommended from users for dark circles and tired, dull eyes is BENEFIT COSMETICS It’s Potent Eye Cream. Another highly purchased and long time popular eye cream with proven results is CLINIQUE All About Eyes.
Even with our suntanned, clean and moisturized skin, sometimes we still need a little coverage. If you are looking for a product that makes your skin look even more flawless, without the effort of a full face routine — tinted moisturizer is where it’s at. bareMinerals COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Moisturizer provides skincare benefits with naturally radiant coverage, giving a boost of hydration and a healthy glow. A BB cream you will always catch in my bag in the summertime is Garnier Skin Perfector BB Cream — perfect amount of coverage and moisture for that “no-makeup” makeup look.
The best way to look tan and summer ready, without actually laying in the sun for hours would definitely be using fake tan. Fake Bake Flawless has been a favorite to many sunless tanners for years now, including myself. However, Loving tan and Sun Labs deserve praise as well, with awesome reviews and beautiful flawless suntanned results — hello short skirts and swimsuits!
