Summer PreperationΒ 

Today’s post was inspired by the incredibly hot, hundred degree weather we are experiencing in South Beach.

Summer is just around the corner and it’s always nice to get prepared ahead of time. So I’ve linked some of my favorite summer products to keep you glowy this season! As well as some of my favorite summer tips. 

Glowy skin// 

My absolutely favorite product for glowy skin is bio oil! You can use it all over your body as well as your face, to give your skin that extra boost and moisture it craves. 

I’ve also made up my own concoction of body oil. Inside i mixed coconut oil // vitamin e oil // green tea tree oil // rose hip oil // bio oil. I use this little concoction before bedtime to allow my skin to absorb all of the amazing vitamins and  nutrients!

SPF! SPF! SPF! I’ve always used SPF on my face because I was always told that you needed too. But recently I’ve realized just how important it is. That being said, I’ll never go a day without SPF on my face. If I do miss a day, I’ll notice a complete difference in my skin and pigmentation. My favorite is Dermalogica SPF 50.


Summer tip//

Join a gym that has a variety of class, to allow you to mix up your routine and stay motivated! I recently joined my local Equinox gym, and I’m absolutely obsessed! Gotta get summer beach body ready, am I right?!

Drink lots of water! I try to drink at least a gallon a day, and I notice a huge difference from drinking lots of water. Benefits I’ve experienced are, flatter tummy, healthy skin, energy and appetite control. I mean, our bodies are mostly made of water, so shouldn’t we try to drink lots of it? πŸ˜›

Skin Saver

It is important that we are taking good care of our skin. Good skin = confidence. People should not rely on makeup to feel confident about themselves. But if you have blemish prone skin, it can lead people to feel like they need makeup to cover it up.
I am always looking to try new skin products and this week I invested in Rose Hip Seed Oil. I found mine at a Marshalls in the skin department and I have been loving it so far.

I have normal to oily skin, so putting oil on you skin might seem a little scary. But I honestly can’t even tell its on my skin, as long and you don’t overload on oil.
I have had a little breakout this week, and this little guy have been saving my skin!

I highly recommend trying some!

You can find Rose Hip Seed Oil fairly cheap on amazon.com (here)

Homemade Sugar Scrub

It’s getting around that time of year, when the air gets colder and dryer. This means time to add exfoliation into our beauty regime if it is not already! Exfoliating is very good for your skin, and not just your face but your whole body!

Check out this super quick and easy DIY body scrub, perfect for fall!

You need sugar and oil! The sugar and oil can changed depending on your personal preference.Β When choosing a sugar to use, keep in mind the grain size. Smaller grains will not feel as rough on the skin, so light brown sugar would be best for sensitive skin.

For my scrub I used Brown Sugar and Olive Oil.

2 Cups Brown Sugar

1 Cup Olive Oil

You can make how ever much of the scrub you want, just use two parts sugar and one part oil.

Enjoy and have a happy fall!

Favorite Face Masks

mask 3

I am a girl who loves trying new skin care products, especially face masks.

And I have found two exceptionally great facial masks that I’ve incorporated into my skin routine for the past couple of months, and I have noticed a HUGE difference!

mask 2

The first facial mask was one I picked up at a Hand and Stone spa, the Rehab Mediterranean Detoxifying Mud Mask.

This mask is very strong, so I usually do not cover my whole face but rather I use it like a spot treatment. If I am having a few problem areas, I use this mask on the particular spot, once a day for ten minutes. After a few days the problem has completely disappeared! This product was $25, but since I use it more like a spot treatment, this could last for around 6 months.

This next mask is one a few of you may be familiar with as it is one of The Body Shop’s top rated items. This tea tree face maskΒ has such an amazing cooling effect on the skin and visibly reduces any redness on my skin instantly. I use this mask about twice a week, as it is perfect for those hot summer days when you want to cool down and relax.

I actually found out about this mask after purchasing a sample pack from the counter at Sephora. I love picking up a few small sample packs every time I stop by. It is a quick and cheap way to test out a product before deciding to purchase it.

 

 

Thanks!
