Summertime is one of favorite seasons (next to fall of course). Popsicles by the pool, cocktails on the back deck, and SUN HATS. I have an unhealthy obsession with sun hats. But along comes summer, along comes the southern sun, and I say hello to my oily skin for the three long months of the season.
I’m a dedicated tanner and my skin is so important to me. I love to keep it hydrated and love to replenish it with the vitamins it deserves. Needless to say, I want it to look GLOWING during the summer. Because glowing skin is always in. Let me give you my favorite Summertime Skin Regimen.
The key to keeping youthful skin 5ever is a great moisturizer, or if you’re looking to block out the sun’s rays, a sun block. Coconut oil is usually my go to moisturizer, but because my skin stays oily in the heat, I try to steer away from it. I don’t want to rub excess oil on my already oily skin. The moisturizer I always reach for in mid June is Love Boho Tan Extender. It’s a lotion that is packed with vitamins that you lose from UV rays. It makes you smell like a Coachella Goddess and keeps your skin baby soft, instead of adding a layer of oil
2. Shave Minimizer
Shorts and dresses are my entire wardrobe this time of year, but obviously it is no long No Shave November. A Shave Minimizer is the secret to having smooth legs for the next 2 months. The more you shave with this stuff, the less hair growth returns. My favorite is No Apologies from Designer Skin. Two words: You’re Welcome.
3. Charcoal Soap
Even though I reduce my summer makeup routine to a good layer of BB cream and favorite lip gloss, it’s still a chore trying to take it off at the end of the long summer night. I reach for my charcoal soap when I wash my face because it cleans my pores so well all while leaving my skin soft for the next day. I have a sensitive face and charcoal soap is so gentle. 10/10 would recommend to a friend on this one.
4. Tiny Bubbles Body Wash
Not only is it important to get your face clean, but you can’t forget your beautiful summer bod. Body wash must haves for me include, a good fragrance, gentle formula, and I need a long lasting clean feeling. My fav summer body wash is Tiny Bubbles (Designer Skin). It smells like bubble gum, it’s OOBER soft, and it keeps my skin fresh even while I’m outside enjoying the beautiful day. A+ for Tiny Bubbles
5. Kissable Lips
The weather is not the only thing getting hotter this summer (wink wink). Your lips should be fully prepared. I have two must haves for you. The first is Sun Bum Chapstick!!!!! It comes in like 15 different flavors, including my favorite coconut, and it has SPF for your lips so you never risk over exposing them to the sun’s rays. You can always find this stuff laying at the bottom of my beach bag, my convertible, and my purse. I just can’t live without. The second secret, is my go to lipgloss. It’s shiny, it’s in the perfect peachy shade, and its a plumper. That’s right. A plumper. Sexy Mother Pucker XXL Pillow Plump lip gloss. It’s the stuff.
I hope my secrets to radiant skin help you out this summer. If you have any secrets for me, leave them in the comments!! Remember, Glowing Skin is Always In.
