Summer Checklist for Healthy, Luminous Skin

July 21st, 2017 at 2:00am

The day we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. School is out, the sun is shining, and the time for fun and relaxation is here. With all of the pool and beach days, it can be easy to forget about our skin, so I have created a checklist to keep our skin protected and glowing through the summer months!

First things first: sunscreen. Sunscreen protects the skin from wrinkles, sunburns, and sunspots. Plus, it can even moisturize the skin at the same time. I recommend the Olay Complete Daily Defense All Day Moisturizer ($14). This is a great product because it is a moisturizer and sunscreen all in one.

The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in “Radiance” ($38) is a great product to use alone or under makeup. I love to use this product on the high points of my face or all over on a no makeup day. It gives a healthy glow and keeps the skin looking luminous.

For the hot summer months, the foundation I have found to be best is the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation ($47) which comes in 17 shades. It is lightweight, full coverage, and has SPF 50. It leaves the skin looking luminous, healthy, and flawless.

With or without foundation, the next item on the checklist is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector ($38) which comes in nine beautiful shades. This is one of the brightest highlights on the market and will give the skin a flawless glow when brushed onto the high points of the face. Another trick is to apply this to the shoulders and décolleté for an all over glow.

For a juicy pout, the NARS Lip Gloss ($26) is perfect and it’s available in 17 shades. These are ultra-glossy and provide a sheer coverage on the lips. Glossy lips are perfect for summer and pair perfectly with glowy, luminous skin. My favorite summer shade of this gloss is Orgasm.

Last but not least, we have to set the face so it can stay in place all day. For the summer, setting sprays are the best because they do not dry out the skin. A great one is the ‘Prep + Prime’ Fix+ Finishing Mist by MAC ($24). This helps all of the products melt into the skin and makes them last all day.

I hope this list helps give some information about how to get luminous and healthy skin for the summer! Leave some comments down below if any of these products have worked for you. If they have, don’t forget to take a selfie and show us on social media by tagging @Cfashionista!
