Summer is always a challenge. Heat, humidity, sweating, breezes make it harder to maintain your polished look year round. This year, I have two hero products at the ready. Oribe Impermeable Anti Humidity Spray ($42) During the hot, hazy, humid days of July-August, Oribe is a lifesaver. Spray it on in the AM to save your do. I use the mini size to throw in my bag and to travel with. Smells beautiful and luxurious, and it actually does help keep frizz at bay. Tom Ford Soleil Contouring Compact – Nude Glow ($110) I am fair and never get any sun (well, not deliberately). Tom Ford Nude Glow is perfect for my skin tone and gives me a pretty, subtle radiance that looks sun kissed without all the nasty UV damage. I spend way too much money on laser treatments to risk undoing all the good work my doctor friends have done for me.
I’m loving Dial’s new Himalayan Salt Enriching Scrub ($7) this summer and Oclipse Sun Spray SPF 50 by Zo Skin Health ($50) is the best thing that ever happened to a beach day — easy to use, not greasy and super effective.
You would not believe how many many compliments I’ve been getting on my skin, which is why my latest can’t-live-without product is IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination in Radiant Translucent ($30). This tech-advanced pressed powder makes it easy to mimic perfectly airbrushed skin and a lit-from-within glow, without a speck of shimmer in sight, plus it’s formulated with skin-loving ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, silk, antioxidants and peptides. I use a fluffy powder brush to sweep it onto my bare skin for a natural-looking, pore-less, and radiant complexion, but if you’re looking for absolute perfection, wear it over your usual foundation. You will not believe the difference!
I’m really loving Drunk Elephant’s new D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Serum ($36). I add a bit to my sunscreen in the morning to give my skin a subtle golden glow, and since it isn’t self-tanner I don’t have to worry about going overboard.
My skin has changed so much over the years. Not only is my skin super sensitive, I have become more ingredient conscious. I try to keep it as clean as possible but still beautify and protect my skin. I love Jane Iredale Glow Time Mineral BB Cream ($48). It disguises all the blemishes, brightens my skin and protects my face with an SPF 25. I also can’t survive summer without Coola Suncare Eco-Lux Body SPF 30 Organic Sunscreen Spray ($36). It’s non-GMO, smells delish, plus hydrates and protects my skin. Clean ingredients with results!
This summer, I can’t get enough of Coola’s Mineral Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Finish Moisturizer ($36) it feels like silk on my sensitive skin. It’s more than just skin protection, it’s a natural organic mineral sunscreen with antioxidant benefits that’s made in the USA. Great under makeup and it’s also water-resistant for up to 40 minutes.
