Summer Skincare.

Hello sun-kissed skin. Goodbye make-up! Okay, maybe not bronzer......or mascara. 

Nonetheless, everyone (in my opinion) looks better with a healthy, summer glow. But, flawless looking skin doesn't just happen. Give your skin the attention it deserves in these hot and humid summer months, because let's face it.....dry, unhealthy skin is not very pretty. Here's some easy tips and great products that are sure to keep your skin looking and feeling it's very best:)

Protect: Summer is all about having fun in the sun! Anytime you're outdoors, you should always use sunscreen (and reapply frequently) to protect your skin from sun damage. When shopping for sunscreen, look for ones that protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Here's two awesome sunscreens that I love to use!
Exfoliate: Another MUST during the summertime is to exfoliate your skin! Doing this removes the dead skin cells (the things that make our skin look dull), cleanses our pores, and refreshes our skin! How often you exfoliate depends on your skin type, but typically someone with regular to dry skin should exfoliate somewhere around once a week. People with oily skin can exfoliate much more often, even once a day. And during the summer months, it's a good idea to exfoliate more than you would normally. Other than investing in a good facial scrub, it's a good idea to do facials regularly. It's always fun to do at-home facials, using natural, it's a great reason to get all your girlfriends together:)
Hydrate: Last but not least, hydrate! The sun dry's out your skin, and dry skin is not a good look. So, don't forget to moisturize daily! Also, it's a good idea to moisturize after sun, after showering and before bed. One more easy way for your skin to stay hydrateddrink lots of water! And here's a tip: out of your 8 daily glasses, drink one in the morning and one before bed to help skin look it's best. Below are two products that make my skin so soft and smooth! 
Oh, almost forgot the best part of summer skincare....something I seriously could not live without: mani-pedis.They're great! You get pampered (yes please!) and when you're done, your hands and feet look and feel amazing (of course, accompanied with a super-cute polish)!

Now, go! Soak up the sun:)
