Because the weather is heating up, today we are sharing our summertime skin care secrets- for beautiful and glowing summer skin!
As women, it is important for us to care for our skin year-round, but especially over the summer! The sun is strong, the air is thick and our skin is very sensitive.
Here are a few skin care secrets to get your skin through the heat this summer:
Use sunscreen- This is of crucial significance. Sun protection is essential in preventing premature skin aging and wrinkling. The most important job sunscreen has, though, is protecting you from skin caner. Apply a lightweight moisturizer containing SPF every day to your face.

Stay hydrated- DRINK WATER! Every day, drink as much water as you can, plus some! Staying hydrated with water is the best thing that you can do for your body- and your skin. Water is beauty fuel for your skin!
Eat fruit- Fruits like watermelon and cantaloupe are rich in water and in antioxidants, delivering more hydration to your skin! Strawberries also contain powerful antioxidants–healthy for your body and perfect for skin and hair.
Cool Showers- After a day at the beach, taking a nice cold shower is better for your skin. Water at a cooler temperature will cool off your skin, rather than drying it out with steaming hot water.
Body Wash- Look for a body wash that is a gentle exfoliant. Using a body wash with exfoliating beads will remove dry, flaky skin and add a ton of moisture to your summer bod! Look for one that is a gentle body wash, not a body scrub… there is a difference, I promise! Using a body scrub is a good thing, but will be too harsh for your sensitive sun-kissed skin! My favorite is from Philosophy. This wash is gentle, lightweight and super creamy!
Facial Scrubber- This summer, invest in a facial brush or scrubber. Using a tool like this to wash your face will get deep into the skin, and reach places that your hands just can’t! Using a tool will remove all traces of dirt, oil and makeup and leave your skin glowing! If you want to go with a brush, find one with soft bristles for your sensitive summer skin. Facial scrubbers or sponges are great too. I recommend the Clarisonic (beauty splurge), or my new obsession- Ecotools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge (beauty steal)!
