Summer is officially here! It's time to get out in the sun, get in the water, or sit back in the AC because it's too dang hot out!
Heat, humidity, pool chemicals, and dry inside air all bring new needs for your summer skin that weren't there in the spring. Follow these 4 quick and simple steps to perk up summer skin and keep it fresh all season long.
After every shower or bath tone your skin to keep your pH balanced. Routine toning can help avoid oily skin. My personal favorite is this homemade organic rosewater recipe you can make yourself. Find out how in my blog post here.
Exfoliate regularly (2-3 times a week) to keep your skin clear and smooth. Regular exfoliation not only helps to get rid of dull surface skin, but it also allows your skin to soak up moisturizer more efficiently.
Use your favorite prepared face scrub or make your own out of sugar, olive oil, and aloe vera juice. Here's a super silky recipe for you to try.
Measure all ingredients into a clean bowl and mix till combined. Gently rub in circular motions to exfoliate your skin. Rinse with warm water, pat dry, and feel the soft!
3. Light Moisture
Summer skin loves a light, antioxidant packed moisturizer. Ditch the heavier winter cremes and opt for light face serums. For a real treat, dip a cotton ball in olive oil and dab over face and neck. You will be shocked at how this simple pantry oil will have your skin fresh and glowing!
Keep your insides hydrated and your outsides will be hydrated too. Prevent skin from drying out by drinking your 8 glasses (or more!) a day. If the thought of plain water is too boring, check out these fruit infused water recipes that will make it easy to hydrate and refresh in my blog post here.
