Summer has always been my favourite season minus the excessive sweating, melting makeup and the possibility of getting a bad sunburn. I’ve used SPF-infused makeup in the past but it just doesn’t give my skin the sun protection it needs. Here’s my starting lineup for how I keep my skin healthy, happy and shielded.
Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer
After I’ve cleansed my face in the morning I apply this lotion. It contains salicylic acid to unclog my pores, removes dead skin cells and has smoothing moisturizers for my super sensitive skin. When I’m out and about in the heat enjoying a backyard BBQ or just being outdoors the last thing I’m thinking about is how clogged my pores are getting. So any help I can give them before I start my day is a big bonus. Did I mention it’s oil free?
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration
Past memories of my mother slathering on thick, greasy sunscreen on my face and body as a child has made me resent it. But I’ve learned that mom really does know best. I always make sure to put on sunscreen every day because my skin is prone to sun damage. I like my sunscreen oil free, making sure not to awaken horrifying childhood flashbacks on the beach. I’m all about Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen lotion as it doesn’t clog pores and gives me 12 hours of hydration. Definitely a keeper!
Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup
Having an oil free foundation won’t make you feel like your face is melting off when the temperature rises. I recently discovered Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation and it’s been my go-to especially in the summer heat. It stays put all day, even through the brutal humidity and my sweaty gym sessions. I feel like I’m not wearing any makeup and my skin feels like it can actually breathe.
