Summer Skincare Roundup


“Be good to you skin. You’ll wear it
everyday for the rest of your life”
-Renée RouleauWhen

The seasons change and so should our skincare routine! When we think about summer skincare habits, the first thing that should come to mind is SPF. It is important to protect your delicate skin from those pesky sunspots or that unsightly sunburn year round, but especially in those summer vacation months. Even if you think you are not outside enough to bother, the sun still tends to sneak itself into our daily lives somehow. Did you know you could develop sunspots from just driving to and from work everyday?!? Terrifying. The good thing is, the beauty industry offers thousands of different products with SPF so that every woman out there can find a product that fits seamlessly into their morning routine. Now I know that “thousands” sounds super intimidating, so I broke down a list of amazing SPF products that can slide right into place of a product you already have that just isn’t doing the trick.



Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins™ Mega-Bright SPF 30 Skin Tone Correcting Oil-Free Moisturizer

It is great for every skin type and will also help reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone over time.

I love this product for blurring my pores and it makes my foundation look flawless and long lasting all day.





Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 25

Another plus is its anti-aging properties and its ability to target old sunspots while preventing new ones.
This product feels light but still covers imperfections like a foundation would

Instant Mineral SPF 45

image4This powder pretty much speaks for itself. This unique powder contains an SPF of 40 and will leave your face with a smooth finish.
It’s the perfect product to slip in your purse for a festival or in a beach bag for touching up throughout the day.





UncompliKated SPF 50 Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray

image5Have you ever made up your entire face, looking flawless, your eyeliner even matches (wow what an amazing day already), and you realize you forgot your SPF?! Now you don’t have to spend the day unprotected because you can simply set your makeup with this bad boy.
Not only is this your skincare savior, but it also sets your makeup while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It leaves a dewy, natural finish so even if you went heavy handed on your powder, you can take a damp sponge after spraying and blot until you feel less cakey.



At the end of the day, we all want to take better care of our skin. It is OUR skin and we should take pride in it even when we aren’t wearing makeup. By just introducing SPF into your regimen you are saving money in future products to reverse damage caused by UV rays. It is an easy step that will easily pay for itself in the future.

Stay Beautiful XO,
