Happy summer! Are you enjoying the sunshine and time off? Well it sure has been hot here in California. I love the sunshine and blue skies but the heat keeps me up all night and makes my skin super dry in some areas but also oily from sweat in others! Today, I’m sharing with you some of the best beauty essentials for summer!
1. Cooling Facial Spray
This facial spray couldn’t be better for summer! It cools your face quickly and helps bring moisture to the dry parts of your skin, rejuvenating them. Also it can be used as a makeup setting spray and even for a boost of volume in your hair! Talk about triple threat! I have a travel sized version to keep in my bag for an on-the-go quick fix!
2. Anything Aloe Vera
Summer also means sunburns, and sunburns are not fun. What can help with relieving redness and pain from sunburn is aloe vera. I love using aloe vera gel before I go to bed by applying a thin layer throughout the sunburned area. It has a tingling, cooling sensation and helps soothe even the harshest sunburns!
3. BB Cream
A bb cream is great for summer since it’s lighter than foundation but also provides more spf coverage. It’s perfect for starting your makeup routine and covering any blemishes you have. The one I have selected above is great because it is an 8-in-1 bb cream with its benefits including Blurs imperfections, Brightens, Evens skin tone, Smoothes, Hydrates, Enhances, Protects with SPF 30, 0% oils and heavy ingredients.
Bronzer can be great for enhancing that summer glow! If you don’t tan very easily or just want a boost in your complexion, bronzer is amazing! To use bronzer, just make the number three on both cheeks! Start at the top of your forehead, dust it along your cheeks and sweep it across your jaw line all the way to your chin. Don’t forget to blend it into your neck!
5. A Lip Balm
Lips get chapped in summer so you’ll need to have lip balm on hand at all times! The Sephora collection offers an amazing lip balm in all different flavors using all different ingredients to moisturize your lips to keep them delicious and kissable all summer long!
My personal favorite is the coconut, but why not try all 6 since they are only $6 each!
And that’s it for my summer beauty essentials post! In less than a week, I’m off to Europe! I’m so excited to share that experience with all of you!
