Some Skin T.L.C.

For this week’s topic, I’m going to show you some skincare essentials that I love using for the summer and in general. When the weather gets hot and the sun is at its brightest, there are a few more things to keep in mind when changing up your skincare routine. For example, instead of dry skin for me during in winter, I have to worry about oily skin in the heat.

Clarisonic Mia This is the best investment in skincare, ever (besides a facial every now and then). It’s great for taking off that extra layer of makeup residue, and helping renew the skin surface. Plus, it’s pink! I got mine with Philosophy’s Purity cleanser, which I featured in my last Things We Love post. It also came with two different brush heads, a sensitive one and a deep cleaning one. I switch them out depending on the condition of my skin — opting for the sensitive brush head when I break out. I got my Clarisonic kit from QVC, available here.

Dr. Loretta Tea-rrific This antioxidant mattifier is such a great added step into your skincare routine. I just take a small pump and apply it over my problem areas, usually my T-zone, and proceed with either my moisturizer or night cream. Using this has made such a difference with my face. There is less need for oil-blotting sheets and my skin blemishes clear up faster since there is less breakouts from having oily skin. The redness in the center of my face also has been clearing up. More info on their website.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask A perfect pick-me-up on days when you need the spa, but just dont have the time! This takes only 5 minutes on damp skin. I usually use it after washing my face at night to give my skin a boost before bed. The formula foams up on your face during the five minutes and you may feel a tickle. It’s those oxygen molecules working. I like to call it insta-spa :) Available also on QVC here.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen Of course, the skin on your body is just as important. During the summer it’s important to protect your skin from harmful rays with sunscreen, even if you aren’t heading out to the beach or pool. Look for Hawaiian Tropic at your local pharmacy or drugstore! More info:

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer I love argan oil on my hair. It does wonders for your skin as well. So, what’s more perfect than a tinted moisturizer for the summer? A tinted moisturizer with SPF protection. When it’s THAT hot outside, makeup doesn’t feel good on your skin. The best way to still get some coverage without the junk is the tinted moisturizer route. The moisturizer is currently available on QVC here, but if you want the tinted version, it launches in August!
