I started a new series on the blog called Summer Beauty. This series will include my go to products and routines for summer. I will be talking about skincare, bath & body and makeup products I’ve been loving this summer.
Today I am sharing my summer morning skin routine. As with most of us, our skin has different needs during summer vs. winter. A little about my skin type: I have dry skin with some hyperpigmentation along the tops of my cheekbones. I also have fine lines around my eyes and some wrinkles on my forehead. My skin is not that sensitive however I do like to stay away from heavy perfumed products if I can. Ok now let’s get started.
My Morning Essentials
Soap and Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash
Murad Hydrating Toner
Pixi Glow Tonic (every other day)
Boots No7 Protect & Perfect serum
Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
Yes to Lip Oil
Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect eye cream
Estee Lauder Crescent White SPF50
Cleanse: I use the Vitamin C Facial Wash from Soap and Glory. I have been using this facewash for over a year now. I absolutely love it. It deep cleans without leaving my skin dry or tight feeling. It has a nice clean fresh scent.
Tone: A hydrating toner is necessary for my dry skin. This toner from Murad works great. I love the fact it has a mist spray. I spray two pumps, one on my face and one on my neck and chest.
I alternate every other day with using the hydrating toner and the Pixi Glow Tonic pads. The Glow Tonic helps exfoliate dead skin cells for brighter looking skin. The key ingredients are aloe vera, ginseng and Glycolic Acid-5%.
Lips: After I cleanse and tone my skin, I apply a lip oil to hydrate my lips. I really liked the Milani lip oil treatment but ran out recently. I found a new product, the Yes to lip oil in my recent trip to Walmart. I leave this on until I am done with my makeup routine or ready to put on lipstick for the day. It hydrates my lips and I love it. It is about half the cost of the Milani lip oil. A definite win!
Serum: After toner, I use two pumps of the No7 Protect & Perfect Serum all over my face, neck and chest area. This is lightweight serum soaks into the skin nicely and helps with fine lines and wrinkles. I am almost out of this and currently looking for something new. Let me know if you have any suggestions of a product to try.
Moisturize: I just started using the Kiehl’s Daily Reviving concentrate oil. I use two-three drops (put in palm of my hand) and pat this all over face, neck and chest area. I wait for that to soak for a few minutes before the final step.
I really enjoy this product! It is very lightweight, protects my skin and leaves it feeling hydrated all day without a greasy feeling.
Protect: My final step is to apply my eye cream and sunscreen. I have been using Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect eye cream and Estee Lauder Crescent White SPF50.
I really like how my skin has been doing with this product combination. My skin feels hydrated all day without looking or feeling greasy.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I would love to hear what your favorite summer go to products are.
