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!

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.
