Is anyone else absolutely melting this week? With temps soaring over 100* I’ve been doing what I can to stay cool and beat the heat— namely keep the AC blasting. I’m also keeping a few essentials and favorites on hand to help me keep my cool… literally and figuratively! Here’s how I’m keeping my cool this summer>>
1. Get Your Glow On
I’m all about getting that healthy skin glow (more on that later) but I also love when my hair has that healthy sheen to it. When I first heard about the HASK Unwined collection I knew it was a must-try– the shampoo and conditioner are wine-inspired and are actually infused with wine and fruit extracts!
The white wine collection is all about enhancing shine with antioxidant-rich wine extracts, resveratrol (found in grape skin) which protects and restores hair, along with vitamin E-rich grape seed oil to smooth hair cuticles and prevent frizziness.All the products are free of paragons, sulfates and drying alcohol.
2. Protect & Renew
SPF is a must to protect skin in the summer sun but does your sunscreen have additional skin benefits as well? OzeaDerma Anti-Aging Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF35 is the ultimate all-in-one. Not only does it protect against harmful sun rays, it moisturizes skin and gives skin a does of antioxidants to keep skin looking healthier and more youthful. This is definitely a must to keep handy in your summer bag when out having fun in the sun!
3. Refresh Your Skin Routine
To keep my skin glowing all summer long, a solid skin care routine is an absolute must! Lately I’ve been using Colleen Rothschild luxury skincare line.
I start by cleansing my skin and removing makeup with the Radiant Cleansing Balm. I simply massage the balm into dry skin, wet a muslin cloth and gently wipe the balm off. I love that it removes all my makeup while making my skin feel super silky smooth. Plus I love the light scent of the balm!
Next, I follow my cleansing routine by applying the Matcha Tea Treatment Toner. This year I’ve gotten serious about my toner usage and what a difference it makes! The toner removes any leftover dirt or makeup and absorbs any oil that the cleanser might have missed and leaves my skin feeling super clean and refreshed. This toner is formulated with kombucha black tea and matcha green tea to detoxify and protect the skin. LOVE!
Re-hydrating my skin is a must, especially since mine is on the dry side. During the summer, I don’t like using thick moisturizers– they make my skin feel too hot. I’ve really been liking the Sheer Renewal Cream because it’s extremely lightweight, oil-free and lets my skin breath all while giving my skin some serious hydration.
If you’re looking to give your skin a refresh this season, I definitely recommend checking out this line. The products are made with high quality and innovative ingredients to work the best they can… and I think they do a pretty good job at that.
4. Stay Stylish
When my cat wants to get me up in the morning, he knows all he has to do is touch my tray of sunglasses and I will bounce right out– no one messes with my sunnies! I received this gorgeous pair or Zenni Sunglasses and I’m loving the stylish tortoiseshell frames– so my style! These are definitely the perfect pair for every day or to throw in my bag for the beach.
5. Hydrate Naturally
Is there really any better way to cool down that with a tall icy glass of tea? Straight Up Tea is an all-natural bottled tea that tastes REALLY good! There are no artificial sweeteners, ingredients or colorants. I love that they offer three varieties depending on your tastebuds and how you like your tea– Unsweetened, Sorta Sweet and Sweet. I like the Sorta Sweet best– it has just the right amount of sweetness for me!
