Late Summer Beauty Hacks
It maybe late summer, but sun, stress and a busy schedule can still put a strain on our skin! Vamp up your beauty routine to keep your skin in tip-top shape with these beauty hacks for a great rest of the summer!
Always stay protected from the sun no matter how hard you’re working with Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Sport Luxe Sunscreen for Face and Body. This 100% Natural, Sport Luxe SPF 30 was created for an active life in motion. A new generation of mineral sunscreen is infused with SmartSportTM Technology for high performance, ultra sheer protection that resists wear off from water and sweat ($30; Lavanila.com).
This sunscreen is the best! I have used it at the beach and it kept my family's skin completely protected from sunburn, even after we swam in the ocean!
If you do get a burn, don’t let it dry your skin! Korres Greek Yoghurt After-Sun Cooling Gel is an ultra-cooling cream gel that provides long-lasting freshness and comfort to the face and body. Ideal for after sun exposure, yogurt hydrates the skin, instantly relieving excessive heat and stinging ($26; Sephora.com).
When my family went camping, some of the members in our group forgot to wear sunscreen while out on the boat. I had this amazing after-sun cooling gel with me, and those that were sunburned were very thankful that I had it on hand. It works much better to soothe and heal sunburns than aloe vera!
Diminish tired, puffy eyes with Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment. This pototent anti-aging serum is infused with the Bio Copper Complex to reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate eye area while it firms, smooths texture and tones the skin ($69; Kohls.com).
This is my favorite eye serum! It really makes my eyes look years younger.
Say goodbye to shine – and clogged pores! When you have oily skin, shine prevention is essential. For the first time, the Bioré skincare experts have added natural charcoal powder to the iconic Pore Strips, reducing oil for a full 24 hours. With next generation proprietary c-bond technology and potent charcoal, the strips remove clogs and weeks’ worth of buildup and you’ll see 3x less oil. Containing witch hazel and tea tree oil, the formula refines pores to diminish their appearance over time ($6.49; Drugstores and mass retailers).
When I use these pore strips, I can count on have matte looking skin all day long. (Usually in the heat, my face looks like an oil slick by noon.)
Keep a refreshing summer scent on hand when running around in the heat! Wild Essence by Halle Berry is a fragrance that truly captures the sensual spirit of a woman and is inspired by the idea of connecting women with nature. Desirable and sexy, this multifaceted fragrance has notes of fresh citrus and floral that captivates the raw to cheer anyone up in even the hottest of heat ($28, HalleBerryFragrances.com).
I love this beautiful summer fragrance! It is perfect for wearing on a hot date night with my husband!
