Our Fave 2017 Summer Skin Treats
Summer ’17 proved to be a hot one – just a few seconds outdoors and it’s over for most of us. Thankfully, some our favorite beauty brands had our backs with the following goodies, so we were ready for the heatwaves!

This French mineral water based cleanser foams up and tickles your skin while purifying and lifting impurities. It’s great first thing in the morning when you need that extra kick during your morning shower and works super well when you’re in a hurry (it doesn’t need long to sit and washes off easily with lukewarm water). Adding it to your makeup removal routine post-wipes will enhance the clean. It leaves the skin feeling soft and refreshed.

If there’s one thing that summer bring, it’s heat! And where does that heat come from? The blazing rays from the Sun. Of course we all want to look cute during these Summer months, but it’s also super important to take care of our skin. SPF should be a mandatory part of everyone’s daily routine. But combining with your foundation with SPF 50, now that’s a bonus! IT Cosmetics CC Cream gives you coverage, sun protection and an anti-aging serum all in one. The finish is buildable yet doesn’t look cakey at the same time. This is a great foundation to bring with you on summer vacay and also to keep as a staple at home.
One of my favorite summer products would have to be Danessa Myricks Vision Cream Cover Foundation. This foundation is a game changer! Not only is it skin perfecting, it’s completely waterproof! If you suffer from skin discoloration, you’ll have complete coverage with just a couple drops while looking light and hydrated.
You don’t have worry about sweating off your foundation if you’re having an outdoor wedding or during a sunny day at the pool. Sweat and water collect on top of the foundation which you can dab off with a tissue with no stress of compromising your foundation.

Everyone knows that we should hydrate our bodies. We try to drink our 8 cups of water each day to stay hydrated, but why not add another layer of hydration with a facial spray? I love the Mario Badescu Rose Water Spray. It contains Aloe, Herbs and Rose essences. Whenever I’m feeling like my skin needs a pick me up, I spritz myself a few times and my makeup looks better but I also feel more refreshed. This is a great item to throw in the refrigerator as well so you get an extra cooling effect.
