My Summer Skincare Essentials & Tips
Summer is just around the corner! Crazy, I know. But even with Spring in full swing we are already feeling the heat down here in beautiful Southern California. And of course nothing marks the beginning of summer quite like Memorial Day weekend. Which is why I want to get a head-start and give you some of my summer skincare essentials & tips! Are you ready for it?
Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer
Load Up On Sunscreen - Okay, so maybe you don't need to "load up", but find a brand that you enjoy and slather it on for summer! One of the biggest anti-aging products is sunscreen, and I gaurantee your future self will thank you for slathering it on now. Contrary to popular belief it is absolutely possible to find sunscreens that not only smell great, but feel great on as well! Some of my favorites include COOLA
Get Your Glow On - It's no secret that summer is all about sporting a beautiful bronze. But this year lets put down the tanning lotion and opt for a sunless tan! Those who know me know that I am all about the SPF, meaning pile on the sunscreen and keep yourself protected from the harsh UV rays! There is no better way to accelerate the aging process than to bake in the sun. Click Here for some of my favorite Bronzers, Tanners, & Moisture Tints to keep you looking gallant and glowing all summer long.
Exfoliate - I am a huge advocate of exfoliating both face & body year-round, but in the summertime this is even more essential! Exfoliating your body will help keep your skin looking its radiant best and will allow your product to penetrate better. It is also great to do right before a self-tanner, as it will help your skin look more radiant and even for longer! For the body I love Pure Fiji's Sugar Rub and Eminence Organics Mimosa Champagne Sugar Scrub. And for the face I am a huge fan of Epicuren's Pumpkin Spice Apple Peel, as well as Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant.
Three Words: Hands, Neck, Decolette - This summer I want you to get into the habit for extending your sunscreen to these three key areas. Of course, if you are out enjoying a day on the beach you should be SPF'd from head-to-toe, but for days in the office a lot of us just stick to our face. Your hands, neck, and decolette can be a dead-giveaway of your age, which is why it is important to remember them during our morning routine. Try to reapply throughout the day for optimum protection and enjoy your youthful looking skin for longer!
Blot It Out - As many of you know, winter is a time for dry skin. Which is why it should come as no surprise that summertime can mean oily skin. I recommend Eminence Organics Green Tea & Hemp Blotting Tissue for a quick and easy pick-me-up. These are fabulous and easy and a definite essential for summertime.
Embrace Yourself - Nothing makes you look better than confidence! Take care to protect your skin and embrace yourself, and you are set for a fabulously beautiful summer!
Happy Memorial Day!
