Mornin’ & happy Saturday!
In less than two weeks, I am turning the big two-five! As I near a quarter of a century, I am putting more emphasis on the health of my skin. I try to do a fairly good job at keeping my insides running smoothly via nutritious eats and ample exercise, but… your skin is your largest organ! Most of us just don’t think of it that way.
Now that it’s almost summer (and already in the triple digits around here), the UV rays are stronger than ever; I’m prepared to keep the flaky nose and freckle explosions to a minimum this season. Without further adieu, here are my favorite summer skin care and beauty products…
1 // 100% Pure Coffee Cherry Sun Damage Corrective Cream
100 Percent Pure is my new favorite skin care line. This face lotion is dreamy — it really does smell lightly of coffee and cherry, mmm. I use it at night after cleansing my face as it’s a thicker cream.
contains hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamins, coffee cherry, green coffee, and green tea which are rich in antioxidants, caffeine, and ECEG
2 // Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
This is actually a year-round beauty must-have for me. I’ve been using this product since last November and use it daily. Even on the days I don’t wear make-up, I stroke the brightener (I wear Luminous 1) under my eyes for a little oomph. #notiredeyes
3 // Bare Minerals All-Over Face Color in Pure Radiance
I am not a bronzer type of girl, but I’m a fan of a summer glow. I use this sheer shimmer powder on my cheeks (and chest) to give my matte makeup delicate radiance.
4 // 100% Pure Vitamin C Serum
It was recommended that I use a vitamin C serum to lighten the pigmentation (a.k.a. sun spots and acne scaring) on my face. I decided to go with the 100 Percent Pure serum because it’s “stable” (doesn’t oxidize). I love the feel of this serum and use it once to twice a day under sunscreen or makeup.
concentrated with stabilized vitamin c boosts collagen production
increases elasticity and firmness
gives complexion a radiant glow
5 // Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes
While perhaps not the most eco-friendly option, these cooling face wipes are entirely convenient to wipe off the day’s SPF and make-up. They also come in travel-friendly sizes, so they’re great for summer trips!
6 // Coola Liplux SPF 15 in Peppermint Vanilla
Can you tell I’m all about the SPF? Don’t forget about those kissable lips; I am a sucker (pun intended) for all things minty!
This all-in-one lip treatment moisturizes and protects with SPF 15 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen protection. Our vitamin and antioxidant enriched formula soothes and nourishes, while our unique blend of fruit butters like Raspberry and Avocado hydrate the delicate skin of the lips.
7 // Coola Sport SPF 30 Unscented Sunscreen Spray
For me, this was worth the splurge. I don’t feel as guilty sunbathing in my bikini when I’m using this natural product… making sure to limit my time by the pool, of course.
Offering Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection, this Farm to Face® sourced spray will also nourish, repair and hydrate skin with 70%+ certified organic ingredients like Cucumber, Algae and Strawberry Extracts; and Red Raspberry Seed Oil, a natural sunscreen and anti-inflammatory rich in Omega-3 and 6.
8 // Essie Nail Polish in Coral Reef
Every girl’s gotta have a bright and polished pedicure all summer long. I’m a fan of Essie polishes — ooh, #allthecolors!
