It's unofficially summer, and that means two things, summer Fridays, and it's time to tweak your skincare regimen. Since East Coast weather is, just now, starting to heat up, I was a bit behind on my own update, but now that we're in full swing, it's time to assess and readjust. Here is how I make the seasonal switch:
- Lighten Up - Time to replace heavier foundations for tinted moisturizers or BB/CC creams. These let skin breathe (ie. less clogged pores), and you won't have to worry about having a makeup meltdown - double win. My all time favorite is VMV Hypoallergenics Skintangible. It's super lightweight, gives skin a dewy finish and offers SPF 30 protection. Completely obsessed.
- Switch Your Scent - Heavy, lingering fragrances can feel a overwhelming come the warmer months. If you are a certain scent devotee, look for a lighter eau de toilette or eau de cologne version. My go-to this summer is this scent from Burberry. It feels clean and fresh.
Embrace Bronzer - Just a dusting along the forehead, cheek bones and jawbones gives a well-rested radiance. Look for formulas that say illuminating, which will give an ever-so-slight glow, rather than full-on disco shimmer.
Put Your Best Foot Forward - It's sandal season. Make sure nails and nail beds are well-kept and hydrated. (This foot cream from LCN is amazing.) Complete the look with a fun pop of color. Right now, I'm wearing Elephantastic from OPI.
Lash Out - I like to keep my makeup minimal in the summer and that means just a hint of bronze plus mascara. I'm currently obsessed with this one from Touch in SOL. If gives super long length and doesn't budge or flake all day. Add a poppy lip color and you're set!
