Finally the warmer weather has arrived! It was a long, cold, and dry winter which can wreck havoc on one’s skin. But summer poses it’s own issues! The summer sun can be just as drying and damaging to your skin as the winter.
Summer Skin Essentials
Warmer weather means shorts which means shaving. After you do your post-winter weed whacking, I mean, shaving, you have to maintain that almost every day. At least, I do. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s stubble when wearing shorts and skirts. When you have dry, sensitive skin, that could also leave you with dry, scaly legs. You must Rock Your Legs during the summer!
To help that, start off with a good shaving cream like Skintimate Strawberry Tangerine. Look for a shaving cream that will moisturize while you shave! Your razor is also important. Don’t skimp! The Hydro Silk Trimstyle Razor combines the hydrating Hydro Silk razor with a waterproof bikini trimmer for all your leg and bikini area needs.
Now that you have your legs taken care of, it’s time to take care of your face! My go-to facial wash is the St. Ives Fresh Apricot Scrub. I’ve been using this since high school! The scrub deeply exfoliates your skin, which you definitely need in the summertime. Between sunscreen clogging your pores and the dew that appears on your face when it’s warm out, you need a good scrub to keep your pores clean.
Finish off your skin routine with St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash. Made With 100% natural ingredients, the body wash is also hypoallergenic and paraben free, this ultra-moisturizing, creamy formula with nourishing oatmeal and conditioning shea butter will soothe your dry skin.
And don’t forget, it’s very important to stay hydrated! Drinking water throughout the day will not only keep your body hydrated and healthy, it will also help your skin. When your skin is hydrated, plump, and elastic, it’s less likely to crack and let in external particles that can cause irritations and blemishes. Who wouldn’t love that right?
