I recently just got back from a week long beach trip. I spent about 5 hours in the sun every day, which as you know can be disastrous for your skin. Extended periods in the direct sun can lead to dry skin and painful sun burns. Before I left, I gathered up my favorite summer skin products to nourish and protect my skin from damage!
1. Kate Somerville Gentile Daily Wash
This is a great skin cleanser! It is gentle on the skin and does an amazing job at removing the oils and dead skin that gather up throughout the day! After a long day in the sun, a good cleanse and rejuvenation feels great!
2. Shiseido Pureness Balancing Softener
A gentle clear lotion that softens and balances skin! It is extremely gentle and takes away the dryness of suntanned skin. I love the feeling of putting it on after a long day in the sun, as it balances, softens and rejuvenates the skin!
3. Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Cream
Infused with rose, it is a cream that perfectly moisturizes your skin and leaves it nourished and smelling amazing!
4. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer
A perfect moisturizer to use in the morning before you start your day. It protects your skin from the sun, as it is infused with SPF. Putting it on in the morning gives a great feeling of protection and nourishment!
5. Origins Drink Up Mask
This 10 minute mask quenches the skins thirst! It is the ideal mask to put on after long days in the sun as it replenishes the skin with what the sun has stripped from it! After a short 10 minutes, I remove the mask with a wet towel to find my skin softer and healthier than ever!
6. Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
I particularly find that the sun harms my under-eyes the most. This eye gel is very refreshing and creates a long-lasting moisture barrier. It cools the burn, takes away the puffiness and reduces redness. Each eye gel that I have previously tried irritated my skin, but this product caters perfectly to sensitive skin!
7. Jergens Natural Glow Body Lotion
This is my all-time favorite body lotion! It gives you that natural glow year-round and also has an amazing smell! It firms the skin as well as hydrates! I love to put this on even with a tan because it gives you that added glow that a natural tan cannot provide!
