Summer Skincare Tips

If there is one thing I've learned about summer skincare from growing up in Florida, it's preventative skincare is the first line of defense. The most preventative measures you take before your skin starts to age, the longer you can fend off the aging process all together. Living so close to the equator, summers are hot in Florida, which affects skincare all the way from cleanser to serum to sunscreen. Whether you have dry skin or oily, the summer can be just as hard on your skin as the winter months.

Skincare is merely a perfect blend of products that suit your skin and give it exactly what it needs, while also acting as a barrier against the atmosphere's effects as well. I've rounded up the must have summer products, as well as my own personal tips to beat the heat and UV rays of summer.

Cool Summer Days

Lingering cool days in the mountains extend sweater weather a little bit longer than in the rest of the south. When the rhododendrons are in full bloom, but its barely 65 degrees—my favorite. I always feel so cozy and comfortable in this Gibson sweater from Nordstrom. It's light enough and extremely soft—it's my go-to for rainy days too.

Needle-free Wrinkle Product

Wrinkles have been on my mind lately—maybe because I'm closer to thirty-one than thirty or maybe just because I'm hyper aware of my skin. Either way, I was on a mission to find something to help with expression lines on my face that wouldn't require a needle of any kind or botox. Then, Frownies fell in my lap.

Summer Makeup Must-Haves

When summer rolls around, I'm ready to go as sheer as possible with my makeup, while working in pops of bright, bold color. Sunshine and tan lines are about as unavoidable as mosquitos during a southern summer. So, to play up my tan and let my bare face shine through, I switch to a BB creme with a touch of SPF, bronzer for contouring, a bright cheek color, highlight and eye-catching lipsticks.
