I love love love my skincare, and during the summer, it’s time to bring out all the stops to rock a bare face. Even though summer is coming to an end, you don’t want to be caught slipping on hydration especially with a season change coming up. These are some summer favs that just might be coming with me into the fall…we’ll see. 😉
~Mario Badescu Skin Care Aloe, Chamomile, and Lavender facial spray, $7: keeps my pores tight, helps fight breakouts, perfect for under my serums, smells like a DREAM, and feels SO good any time of the day for a quick refresh. Also! If you deal with a lot of irritation, this mist has a calming effect!
~Olay Ultimate Hydration Essence Energizing Mist, $14: LOVE this for the mornings right after washing my face for a burst of energy to my skin with a citrusy smell 🍊 This just feels luxurious. I can’t really say it’s done much other than make me feel like a bad b!
~UrbanSkinRx Complexion Protection Moisturizer + SPF 30, $24: BROWN SKIN BABES. LISTEN UP. NO WHITE CAST. Need I say more? We all need to be putting on SPF, but this one is specifically formulated for melanated babes OKAY don’t sleep on it. It dries down super quick and wears super well under makeup. It’s got a faint sunscreen smell until it dries down, but then- it just helps this hot girl skin look extra hot 🤩 If you’re trying to fix hyperpigmentation issues- WEAR YA SPF
~The Ordinary Hylauronic Acid 2% + B5 Serum, $7: This is straight hydration PERIOD. I put this serum on after my Mario Badescu Spray and the water-loving molecules that make up Hyaluronic Acid work extra hard to keep my skin supple and hydrated.💦
~The Body Shop Almond Milk Body Yogurt, $15: It’s a sensitive skin formula, so right there you know it’s gonna be super nice to you. This was a recommendation from a friend (thanks, Maddie!) and I LOVE it. If lotion is not your thing during the summer because it’s too thick or WHATEVER crazy reason you have for hating soft skin, then this is your jam. It’s a thin consistency, a little goes a long way, and it absorbs into the skin SUPER fast. Also, for those of you that worry about attracting bugs- this has a mega light scent. It is super faint, so you know that you smell good but nowhere near bath and body works intensity!
