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




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.

Best Drug Store Acne Clearing System

GIRL! Let me tell you...


I used to struggle with acne SO bad, until I came across this miracle treatment, and it only includes 3 things.


Neutrogena is one VERY trusted brand out there in the skin care market and it is by far one of my favorites, solely because it works, and it's affordable! I discovered their Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne product line a little less than a year ago and I have never turned back. 



Let me tell you about the products:



Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Face Wash


This has to be my least favorite of the products, but doesn't mean I don't love it. It feels so soft on the skin and has a bit of a smell that refreshens and open pores. However, it feels a bit like lotion when I put it on. The best combo is with this and a mild exfoliant mixed together. 


Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask


And this has to by far be my favorite of the products! After about a week of use my skin was free of all acne and kept it that way. I used to get pretty bad cystic acne and ever since I started using this, I haven't had one cyst. Not. ONE. 


I do recommend following the directions because it can be pretty strong when you first start using it (and you MUST use an SPF with it). Your skin might feel tender, burn a bit and in the case of my boyfriend, peel just a tiny bit after the first few uses, but that is normal! Your skin will get used to it and look better than ever. If you've ever used a retinol, the effects can be similar. 


Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Spot Treatment 


If you are looking to get rid of redness on a pimple within an hour and disappear overnight, this one is your guy. Obviously cysts will take a little bit longer, but for regular acne this stuff makes it go away, LITERALLY overnight. Like literally.
