Your 5 Summer Skin Essentials

Your 5 Summer Skin Essentials

Summer is the time for relaxing and laying under the sun. It is also the perfect time to ditch your heavy makeup products and let your skin breathe. Here are a few of my favorite products that help me save my skin and look great on those hot summer days.

1—Toner. Every morning before I wake up, as well as before I go to bed, I love to use a good toner after washing my face. Witch Hazel is the perfect product for oily skin in the summer. It helps prevent breakouts, refines all your pores, removes excess oil, and leaves your face feeling fresh and beautiful. Also, a huge plus about this product is that it’s affordable and comes from all-natural ingredients that will not harm your skin!

2—Moisturizer. Moisturizing your skin is crucial in the summer. The sun can dehydrate and damage your skin after long periods of exposure, therefore it’s important to moisturize right before going outdoors. Water-based moisturizers work great for this time of the year because they are lightweight and blend seamlessly into your skin.

3—Highlighter. If you are anything like me during the summer, you like to avoid wearing makeup as much as possible. Even though I ditch most face makeup products, I still like to add a little glow to my skin. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector is an amazing product to use to add a natural glow to all the high points of your face.

4—Facial spray. If you want to have a little added hydration, a facial spray is a must-have. I use the Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray pretty much every day regardless if I wear makeup or not. It works well as a makeup setting spray but for the most part, it gives your skin a little refresher especially when you are spending some much needed time under the sun.

5—Sheet masks. After a long day in the heat, there is nothing better than coming inside, washing your face, and putting on a sheet mask. Sheet masks are easy to use and great for your skin. You can put them on while you are cooking, eating, or watching TV, and do not have to wash any product off when you are finished. They also contain many beneficial ingredients that penetrate deep into your skin, leaving you looking fresh and flawless.
