5 Summer Skincare Tips for Healthy, Nourished Skin

5 Simple Skincare Tips for Healthy Summer Skin

Hi friends! I am back from our beach weekend with the summer skincare tips I have learned over the years to maintain and achieve healthy, nourished skin. Summer is the time to show some skin and bring out your swimsuits, shorts and tank tops. With all the extra skin we show in the summer, our skin can turn into our best or worse accessory. A cute summer tank with shorts does not look as attractive if your skin is dried out and neglected.

I know from experience and I have made some mistakes when it comes to my skincare routine and products. So, today I am sharing the five simple ways I take care of my skin and maintain a youthful glow during the summer.

Summer Skincare Tips

#1 – Switch to Organic Skincare

I recently started making the switch to organic skincare, and have already seen what a difference good quality, natural products makes. When it comes to skincare, you get what you pay for. Cheap, generic skincare products that are readily available at the drugstore are usually full of inexpensive chemicals that do nothing to nourish your skin at best, or can outright damage your skin at worst.

With organic skincare, you can rest easy knowing the products you put on your skin will gently nourish and nurture your skin, making it healthy, soft and supple—perfect for flaunting at the beach!

For healthy, glowing, summer-ready skin, organic beauty products from a reputable brand, like Well Within Beauty can transform your skin. Well Within Beauty offers a huge range of essential skincare products made from the finest natural and organic ingredients. Their selection includes makeup remover, cleansers and an eye firming serum.

#2 – Moisturize Daily

Warmer days and increased sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin and cause your oil glands to go into overdrive. You may experience oilier skin during the summer, which may tempt you to skip using moisturizer. Don’t do that! Just because your skin is oily does not mean it is properly moisturized. In fact, keeping your skin adequately hydrated actually helps to manage your natural oil production.

The key is to find a lightweight moisturizer that feels comfortable on your skin during the hot summer months. As I have mentioned before, I use almond oil year-round. It feels light, absorbs really quickly and it works wonders on my skin. If using a moisturizing oil doesn’t suit you, avoid thick creams and lotions that can make your skin feel smothered and sweaty in the summer and go for a gel moisturizer. You can also try pat on multiple layers of a hydrating toner.

#3 – Nourish Your Skin from Within

What you put into your body affects the condition of your skin just as much as what you put on it. Nourish your skin from within by taking nutritional supplements, which Well Within Beauty also offers. Supplements packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants protect your skin cells from free radical damage and boost skin cell renewal for a healthy, youthful glow.

Eating fruits and vegetables is great way to nourish your skin as well. Tomatoes are one of my favorite things to eat for my skin, especially in the summer. There is lycopene in tomatoes, which provides natural skin protection by defending your skin from UV radiation. Studies also show that the ingredients in tomatoes help delay wrinkling and keep your skin looking young.

#4 – Exfoliate Gently

Regular exfoliation helps your skin shed dead cells faster, revealing fresh new radiant skin underneath. For a youthful summer glow, exfoliate regularly with a gentle yet effective chemical exfoliator, with AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid). About three times a week, I use Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, which has AHA, jojoba oil, aloe vera and a few other magical ingredients!

Stay away from harsh physical scrubs that can rub your skin raw and cause it to become sensitized or reactive. Treat your skin like you would a newborn baby—with tender, loving care instead of rough scrubbing and rubbing. A lot of facial and body scrubs contain overly harsh physical exfoliators like crushed walnut shells that can damage your skin, or microbeads that are harmful to the environment when washed off.

#5 – Never Skip Sunscreen

My last tip is kind of a no-brainer. You should never, ever skip sunscreen during the summer when the sun’s rays are strongest. You should actually wear sunscreen every day, no matter what the weather, because the sun’s UV rays are so powerful that they can penetrate through clouds, glass and windows. Sun protection is especially important during the summer when people tend to wear lighter clothes that expose more skin.

So far this summer, my favorite sunscreen is by COOLA. I use the one pictured above on my face. It has a smooth non-greasy feeling and a lovely, light tea scent. Be sure to choose a sunscreen with broad spectrum protection and an SPF of at least 30, and wear enough of it to cover all exposed areas of your face and body.  On work days, when I’m not directly in the sun, I use my go-to tinted moisturizer, which is SPF 20.

Hopefully these summer skincare tips will help you discover more nourished and healthy skin this season! Remember that exercising a consistent skincare routine is also key to maintaining healthy skin.

The Best Product to Set Makeup in the Summer

The Best Beauty Product for Setting Makeup in the Summertime

Summer is here, and while that means lots of time in the sun and hanging outside, it also means… SWEAT happens! I hate being sweaty, and since I’m assuming most of my readers do too, I am sharing the beauty product I use to prevent makeup from melting (or sweating) off my face. 

I’ve shared with you my favorite tinted moisturizer foundation, and this beauty secret is from the same brand – Laura Mercier. It’s their Translucent Loose Setting Powder.

Why it rocks…

This stuff is seriously magic. I have noticed over the years, that it is especially effective in the summertime. While that dewy look can be attractive on your tanned skin, there’s a fine line between dewy and sweaty. Hopefully you do not know this from experience, like I do (ugh)! This powder sets your face and continually absorbs oils, leaving your skin looking matte, even on crazy humid days. I remember getting in the car after walking several blocks in D.C. on a hot, August day. I was in work clothes and I felt sticky all over. But to my surprise, I pulled the visor down and my makeup was exactly where I had put it on my face that morning. And somehow, I didn’t look sweaty. That’s how awesome this stuff is!

How it works…

This soft, silky and smooth product should be applied after your foundation and concealer are on. Laura Mercier has a powder puff you can use for application, but I found that method was messy for me and resulted in too much powder on my face. A little goes a long way! I prefer to use a kabuki brush and push it into the powder. Then, I tap the brush several times until I see a small amount is left on the brush and I gently brush the powder into my face. I also use a smaller brush and apply it to my eyelids to set eye makeup. It’s particularly great at preventing your eye makeup from creasing. I use it year round, especially when I have a fancy night out or event and want to ensure my makeup stays put all night long.

I recommend Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder for people with combination or oily skin and to anyone who prefers a matte finish on their makeup. This powder will only enhance a matte foundation. And, like I said, if you’re trying to avoid that “makeup falling of your face in the middle of July” you need to consider trying this stuff out.

Have you used this setting powder or something similar? I’d love to hear, what you use during the summer, how much you like it and how you wear it.

Happy Monday & Cheers!
