Summer Skincare Essentials
It has been so dang hot out lately! Especially over here in Arizona… where the weather is in the 100s.
With the weather being so dreadful and brutal with the heat, it is soo important to take extra good care of our skin during this season.
So today, I thought I would share with you my Summer skincare essentials that help me get ready for those hot summer months!
For the longest time, I thought I hated exfoliants and scrubs because they can spread acne to other areas if exfoliated to harshly.
I can tell you now… I WAS WRONG!
The Shea Moisture African Black Soap Wash and Scrub for problem skin actually helped my acne clear up. With Tea Tree oil and and Tamarind extract being the two main ingredients, it really does a great job of combating the active pimples.
Having clear skin is my first step to getting a summer glow because this is the season where I like to go natural and show my bare skin so I like to make sure my skin is clear of blemishes.
I have been obsessed with using masks almost every other night so I have been trying some different ones out but I always come back to this Shea Moisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask.
Just like the Wash and Scrub, it also has Tamarind extract and Tea Tree oil, so it really helps to get rid of those pesky pimples for a blemish free complexion.
This mud mask along with the wash and scrub work so well together at giving me clear skin so I can go for a more natural + glowy look during the summer.
Because who wants to cake on a bunch of makeup during the hot summer days…. Not me! I’d rather have my skin looking natural and clear of acne and Shea Moisture has some of the best cruelty-free skincare that does just the trick for that.
The Body Shop Tea Tree range has always been a staple in my skincare routine so I just find it fitting to talk about it in my summer skincare essentials.
My skin gets really oily and, to be honest, it is just not cute at all. With the hot summer weather my oil spins out of control. The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying toner not only helps with blemishes but also helps keep my oil at bay throughout the day without getting rid of all the glow in my skin.
I have never really been into serums until I tried this Art Natural Vitamin C Serum. Now I’m hooked!
This serum is the definition of summer glow as it really brightens the skin within just a couple uses! Not only does it brighten, but it fades scars and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I use just a couple drops and apply all over my face but only use this product at night time. It is not advised to use vitamin c and then go out in direct sunlight as it can be damaging to the skin so I like to add it to my night skincare routine to avoid any sun.
Moisturizer is super important to get a natural summer glow and keep the skin hydrated from the hot weather.
I have tried so many moisturizers but the Olay Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer has all of them beat! It is lightweight, non greasy and really hydrates the skin. Not only does it help keep the skin moisturized, but also has SPF 15 to protect the skin from the harsh sun rays.
Derma-rolling is becoming more and more popular within skincare routines lately and I can now say that I am one of those people who are in the craze!
After just one use of the Glam Roller derma-roller, I could tell a difference in my skin.
Derma-rollers puncture tiny holes into the skin so that the skin goes into repair mode. It then repairs all the holes along with repairing scars and other blemishes on the skin.
I have seen a huge reduction of acne after I started using a my derma-roller and an overall improvement in my skin’s appearance!
All of these skincare products really help me make sure my skin looks its best during the harsh Summer months and really give my skin that summer glow that everyone strives for!
