4 Summer beauty essentials to keep on hand

By  |  0 Comments

Starting tomorrow, summer is OFFICIALLY here, and warmer weather usually means a pared down primping routine, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop caring for your skin and hair altogether! Keep reading for the four summer beauty essentials to keep your skin smooth and nourished through the summer.

Lightweight body moisturizer

 

Vaseline-Aloe-Fresh-3

Toss the heavy creams and butters in favor of a lightweight moisturizer. Summer skin still needs hydration – just in smaller doses. Try one with aloe.

CC creams

 

Smashbox-CC-Cream-42

 

 

Who feels like putting on layers of makeup in the summer heat? CC creams are all the rage this year since they moisturize, prime, color correct and contain SPF.

Sunscreen/Sunblock

 

Neutrogena-Clear-Face-Sunscreen-10

 

Whether you want to limit the amount of skin damage as you soak in the sun with a sunscreen, or prevent UVA and UVB rays from penetrating your skin altogether with a sunblock, you’ll need an SPF of at least 15.  Sure a tan might look good for the next few days but its not worth premature aging of the skin.

Foot scrub

 

Freemans-Revitalizing-Foot-Scrub-379

 

Walking around in sandals will take its toll on your feet! Treat them right with a weekly foot scrub to exfoliate skin, prevent callouses and leave skin feeling silky smooth.
