I recently arrived back to Atlanta from a summer beach trip to Miami. On my vacation, I decided to try out some new skin care products, and I fell in love with every single one. These products helped me beat the summer heat and leave my vacation breakout-free with a fresh glowing tan. Every Fashionista should try out these products on a summer trip to the beach, or just a day by the pool!
1—Oil absorbing sheets. After spending a couple of hours under the sun, I like to use my favorite oil absorbing sheets to eliminate any excess moisture and oil on my face. This prevents the chance of my pores getting clogged and potentially leading to breakouts. These blotting sheets are amazing because they do not remove any pre-existing makeup on my face. They also work for all skin types
2—After sun lotion. Long days in the heat increase my chance of sunburn, so at the end of the day, I apply after sun lotion to treat any potential sun burns. This lightweight lotion contains aloe vera, shea butter, and cocoa butter all of which rehydrate and refresh my skin. A major plus for this product is how quickly and effectively it absorbs into my skin. After application, my skin is smooth and left with a fresh lime colada scent.
3—Covergirl foundation. My foundation of choice for the summer is the Covergirl Vitalist healthy Elixir. It is ideal for most sun exposure because its formula includes SPF 20. This lightweight foundation is oil free and eliminates the appearance of oily skin. Oil free foundations are a perfect match for skin that already produces excess oil and moisture. Even after a long day in the heat, this foundation lasts all day without the need to reapply. I love this foundation because it applies smooth and leaves my skin with the perfect summer glow!
4—Whipped sunscreen. The new Coppertone whipped sunscreen is a dream come true for beach lovers. This sheer sunscreen is rich and creamy and applies like butter. I love this sunscreen because it does not leave an oily sheen on my skin after application. You can hardly notice that I used almost half the bottle. The best perk is that its water resistant for 80 minutes. It’s time to say goodbye to reapplying after a dip in the pool!
5—Charcoal face mask. Everyone loves to unwind at the end of the day with a great face mask. My current favorite is the Biore charcoal mask. After hours under the sun, I can tell that my face attracted different dirt and oils throughout the day. I use this mask to eliminate any pore-clogging dirt and oil. The natural charcoal in the formula cleans out any impurities in my skin and leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed.
