As the thermometer continues to rise, I’m looking for ways to simplify my beauty routine and still keep that summer glow thing going (not to be confused with the summer sweaty look!) and these three products never let me down.
Lotion P50 is like a facial in a bottle. Daily use will keep your skin blemish free and glowing. After cleansing in the morning, swipe this on like a toner and it magically re-balances your skin and leaves it ready to receive your moisturizer. if you have sensitive skin, you might want to start with 2-3 times a week and build up to every day.
These next two products are amazing multi-taskers. Viva Sana cream serum is a sunblock that feels like a luxurious night cream and acts like a multi-phase skin treatment which imparts a dewy (read not sweaty!) glow. Skip your foundation and use this alone with a swipe of mascara and a touch of lip gloss and you are out the door with the perfect daytime summer look. In the winter, this works great under your tinted moisturizer or foundation to help combat sallow winter skin. If you’re not ready to ditch your foundation try Kevin Aucoin’s skin liquid. It really is the very best skin highlighter I’ve ever used. It’s a gel-liquid hybrid which glides on and leaves behind the most subtle golden glow imaginable. Beware: a little goes a very long way! Too much leaves you looking like a golden oil spill settled on top of your skin instead of that lit-from-within look we all want. In the summer when you have a little extra color in your cheeks, ditch your blush and instead dab a bit of this on your cheeks after you’ve applied your foundation. You can skip mascara during the day and just add a brown eyeliner to the upper rim of your lashes to make them look fuller and your effortless simple summer look is done!
P.S. Lately, I’ve been using this tinted sunscreen/moisturizer and love the dewy finish.
