My Favorite Five For Glowing Summer Skin

by | Jun 25, 2019 | Beauty, My Favorite Five | 4 comments

I tweak my skincare based on the seasons and what my skin needs.  The heat and sun stress our skin so it’s equally important to take care in the summer. These are My Favorite Five Skincare products for Glowing Summer Skin.

After seeing that you loved my Morning, Nighttime Skin Care Routine, and Winter Skincare Routine, I know you’ll love the products I love using during the summer, too!

1) Colleen Rothschild Body Scrub

I shared a little about this body scrub in this post featuring Colleen Rothschild’s full body collection. I keep the Honey Vanilla Body Scrub in the shower. It’s super exfoliating and I love it! It’s made of finely milled bamboo, pomegranate and cranberry blended with Pink Himalayan salt and Brazilian brown sugar. It always leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft. It has a slight warming effect when you first start to work it around.  It’s the perfect prep for a sunless tan!

2) Chocolate Sun Self Tanning Cream

This tanning cream smells amazing and is so easy to use! You can use it on your face and body. The formula includes Shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe. So your skin will feel moisturized, soft, and look tan!  It is so easy to use that a 10 year old can use it…and mine did!  I couldn’t figure out why she smelled so good when I put her to bed one night after I got home from a business dinner.  I thought she had baked cookies with her sisters!  She was beautifully tan in the morning!  One application note, I take care to moisturize by hands/wrists, elbows, knees, feet/ankles with a good body butter before applying so that those more dry areas don’t get too dark.

3) Glotrition Powder Drink And Serum

I’ve shared this with you on Instagram and in posts here, here, and here. It’s my absolute favorite and must-have! I drink the powder every morning and even pack it when we’re traveling. Their new Quick Glo 10 Pack makes that so easy!  The drink and serum work together to keep your skin looking beautiful from the inside out by supporting your body’s own natural collagen synthesis. It also helps increase skin elasticity!

4) Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum

This is the most amazing corrective facial oil. It does everything you want a skincare product to do. I use about 6 drops as a part of my Nighttime Skincare Routine. Just a few of the issues it tackles…fine lines and wrinkles, acne, lack of elasticity, dullness, etc. After using it, your skin will feel more balanced and radiant.  I love using a few drops of this during the day when my skin is feeling parched.

5) The Protector by BeautyBio

One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to wear a daily SPF. The Protector is a lightweight cream you can use every day that has SPF 30. It’s not greasy but leave your skin feeling very hydrated. It adds a gorgeous glowy sheen to your skin!

    I have been looking for an easy self tanner that does not smell awful. This may be the answer. Do you just apply it like lotion or is their a special application process? As always, thanks for your recommendations!

    • Alicia

      This one is so easy! Just use it like you would a body lotion but taking care to wash your hands and nails after. It smells amazing!
