Top 5 Skincare Products You Can’t Live Without This Summer

Top 5 Skincare Products You Can't Live Without This Summer

I try to wear minimal products on my skin during the summer due to the heat. I don’t need extra product on my face showing me how hot it is! In fact, I don’t even wear makeup during the summer. Instead, I focus on protecting my skin from the sun’s harmful rays, keeping it moisturized, and working to clear up any breakouts or blemishes.

Summertime is really when I want my skin to glow naturally. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite skincare products for this summer, all of which are intended to keep your skin protected, hydrated, and glowing!

1. Sunscreen

My absolute number one essential summer skincare product. In the summer it is imperative to wear sunscreen to protect your delicate skin from the sun’s harsh rays. COOLA’s SPF 30 Mineral Face Matte Tint is an excellent SPF sunscreen. It’s slightly tinted to keep you looking and feeling flawless, without a caked-on feeling.

As the photo below shows, this summer skincare product is stamped with the ‘Clean at Sephora’ seal because it’s made without sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, and more unhealthy ingredients you don’t want in your body. This product is made with rosehip oil, which is rich in free radical fighting vitamin C, as well as shea butter to keep your skin supple and moisturized!

2. SPF Lip Balm

I can’t stress how important this skincare product is for summer. I’ve had burnt lips before and, let me tell you, it is not fun. Like, at all. Not only does this lip balm hydrate your lips (always a good thing during the summer), but it also protects your sensitive lips from the sun’s rays. Trust me when I say that this is an essential product you’ll want!

You can get SPF lip balms at many different price points, making them accessible purchase for all. The traditional Blistex Five Star Lip Protection SPF 30 is a great option, as is Banana Boat’s Sport Performance SPF 50 lip balm. If you want to add a little color to your lips while also keeping them protected, try Fresh’s Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 (pictured below). Bonus: these lip tints come in several different colors!

Maybe I’m cheating a little here since bronzer is makeup and not a skincare product, but I had to add it! Bronzer is an essential part of my skincare routine during the summer. My bronzer of choice is Too Faced’s Chocolate Soleil Bronzer.

Not only does this have a beautiful pigmentation that gives your skin the perfect glow, but it also smells like chocolate. It’s infused with 100% cocoa powder. Yup, you read that right. Just sweep wherever the sun would naturally kiss your skin and prepare to look radiant and smell divine all day long. This product is also formulated without gluten and parabens, and comes in three rich shades: Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate!

4. Exfoliating Mask

Oh, I love a good exfoliating mask. I also love when my skincare products make my skin feel and look as clean as the ingredients in them. Good for all skin types, Kora Organics’ Turmeric 2-in-1 Brightening & Exfoliating Mask, invigorates deep into the skin’s pores to address congestion and sebum buildup. In other words, your skin will thank you for helping clear out clogged pores and dull skin!

Another skincare product sealed with the Clean at Sephora stamp, this exfoliating mask is made with turmeric to help brighten skin and calm redness/pigmentation. It also has aspen bark to promote skin renewal and inhibit acne-causing bacteria. The papaya extract helps unclog pores too! A beautiful addition to your summer skincare routine!

Say goodbye to bags under your eyes! This eye cream is rich in different antioxidants to restore and brighten the skin. Yet another Clean at Sephora skincare product, it’s infused with eight peptides to help rebuild and approve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Five forms of vitamin C help improve and balance the skin tone, and cucumber extract makes the skin look supple and firm!
