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.

I would love to hear how you take care of you skin during the summer. Do you use organic skincare products or take supplements to improve your skin? Share your favorite skincare products or summer skincare tips in the comments.

Inside FabFitFun’s Summer Box 

what's inside the FabFitFun summer box

Hi friends!

Summer officially began last week, and with perfect timing arrived my FabFitFun Summer box. I have talked about this subscription box a couple times before, but if you haven’t heard of it you may be surprised with what a great value it is! I love getting a few fun seasonal items in the mail that I would not think to buy for myself and/or are from brands I have not yet heard about.

what's inside the FabFitFun summer box

Cargo HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze, $30

Highlighters are hot this year, and this was on my list of things to purchase. This one does not disappoint – I’m already in love with how shimmery and silky it is!

Way of Will Post Training Massage Oil, $29.50

I opted for a fitness themed item and got this post-workout massage oil. The oil is a mix of peppermint oil, chamomile oil, and lemongrass oil. I have used peppermint oil for pain management before, so I’m excited to try this!

BKR Bottle in Rosie, $35

This 16 ounce bottle is dishwasher safe, and the silicone is BPA and phthalate free, too.

Understated Leather Travel Set, $28

I also opted for a travel themed item, instead of the artist and chef items, and I got this awesome, rose gold leather travel set. It includes a luggage tag and passport holder.

Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate, $29

I had not heard of the Juice Beauty brand but I’m excited to try this product. The formulas is organic and the product has a subtle green apple scent!

Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace, $58

This necklace is adjustable in length, from 16″ to 18″. It looks great paired with other neutral or colorful necklaces.

Avene Eau Thermale Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion, $24

This is another brand I’m not familiar with, but with an initial try it works nicely under my makeup. The formula is fragrance, paraben, and oil free, too!

Michael Stars Ruana, $54

This ruana is a multi-use product that can work as a scarf, sarong, or wrap! It may be my favorite item in this season’s box (I can’t decide yet!). And I can’t wait to wear it at the beach next week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The total value of my box is $287.50. I think that’s pretty impressive given the high quality of the products included and the low cost of each box. If you would like to try this out or gift a FabFitFun box to a friend, the cost for one box is $49.99. If you buy an annual subscription, the cost per box is $45, and you get to pick which types of themed items you’ll receive (like a beauty item vs. a fitness item).

Click here to receive $10 off your first FabFitFun box!

Have you ever used any of these items? Are you a FabFitFun subscriber? Have you tried a similar subscription box program? I’d love to hear your thoughts on subscription boxes like this one.

Cheers!
