3 Essential Summer Skin Care Products

We all know summer is nearly the most important season to pay extra attention to skin care, so since it's finally here... why not load up on some good products?

Here are my top 3 essential skin care products for the summer. *pics at the end!

 

**to be fair, I want to give you a description of what my skin is like so you can judge each product based on your needs

 

MY SKIN PROFILE

Combination

Oily on cheeks and T-zone

Dry around smile lines

Mild texture around cheek bone area

Typically worsens around that time of the month

Enlarged pores around nose and fullest part of cheeks

Mild acne

2 or 3 bad pimples every now and then, never more than that

Tans easy, never been burnt

Like... I'm outside for 10 minutes and I turn darker than night

Mild acne scarring

Since I don't get much acne, I don't have many scars CURRENTLY, but have battled them in the past

 

So now that my skin profile is out of the way, let's get into my essential products!

 

Tarte Maracuja Oil

Add this to your skin routine for deep hydration around extra dry skin. This oil is not greasy or heavy and is the perfect face oil to either hydrate your skin overnight or wear under makeup for extra glowy skin.

 

This worked SO perfect for me when I had dry skin in the brutal winter, so applying this concept to dry skin in the summer just seems right!

 

Benefit Triple Performing Face Moisturizer

 

This by far is my favorite face moisturizer for the summer solely because of the SPF 15 included in the formula! I wear this on the days I know I'm going to be outside a little bit more or my skin is going through a rough patch. This can also double as a primer for your makeup if you know you're not going to be taking pictures (because yes, it has a white texture because of the SPF and WILL flashback!)

 

 

Fresh rose face mask

 

Of COURSE this is perfect for deep hydration (are you sensing a theme?) but this feels soooo soothing on the skin, especially after a long day outside in the sun and heat. It's super cooling, smells amazing and can calm any redness or hot spots on your face. This is great as a morning awakening mask as well.

5 Summer Skin Care Tips

It's officially the first day of Summer! (or if you're in Vegas like me, it's BEEN here, aka 116 degrees today...)

 

This comes with great weather but also some potential danger for our skin, and I'm not just talking about sunburn!

 

Dark spots, wrinkles, dryness; all of these things can be results of increased sun exposure and high heat. 

 

Follow these few steps to help protect your skin from the harsh summer weather!

 

1. Hydrate!

Moisture starts from within! Since most of us won't be able to drink a gallon a day which is recommended (yeah, that's a lot of water), try to just keep a water bottle by your side at all times.

Hydration also occurs with your moisturizer. Start using an "intense nourishing" moisturizer at night. Grab a sheet mask or two that hydrates skin for additional night moisture, and relaxation!

 

2. Sunscreen

Let's go ahead and get this one out of the way. Even if you won't be exposed to the sun for very long periods of time, sunscreen is important!

Since I don't enjoy having a white tint on my face, I typically choose to use a day moisturizer with SPF, in addition to foundation with SPF! Double duty coverage to ensure safe skin!

 

3. Sunglasses

These are actually more important than you think! Protecting your eyes from the sun, protects you from those nasty crows feet! Since you don't typically put moisturizers and sunscreen around your eyes, they need a little extra protection. 

 

4. Exfoliate

None of your deep hydrating moisturizers, toners or masks can penetrate your skin barrier if there are dead skin cells blocking entry. Gently exfoliate your skin 1 or 2 times a week to ensure fresh and clean skin prepped and ready for moisture!

 

5. moisturize

Maracuja oil is BY FAR my go to product in my daily routine, but is extremely important in the summer. I have combination skin and it is super dry around the smile lines. Applying the oil ensures deeper hydration in my skin.

I put a bit of this over my entire face after a day out on the strip or sitting by the pool to make sure my skin isn't overly dry!
