Summer Summer Summertime: Have Gorgeous Skin All Summer Long

Summer is officially here and we are finding that what worked for our skin in the winter does not apply in the summertime heat and humidity. Whether you are prepping your skin for a gorgeous summertime wedding, a tropical honeymoon getaway, or you just want to look your best during the most revealing season of the year, these must have products will have you looking absolutely fabulous this summer...

Protection from the sun is key and should be taken seriously year round, but especially in the intense months of summer.  Origins' A Perfect World line has an amazing, subtly tinted SPF 35 for the face that is loaded with white tea and other antioxidants.  For night repair Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair is a necessity for every woman. This extraordinary product will heal the skin as you sleep and protect the skin for up to 24 hrs against all environmental assaults.

For a quick hint of natural looking color try a powder bronzer. Bronzers can be applied anywhere you want an extra glow and can easily be carried with you for quick touch ups. We recommend Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer for its natural pigments and oil-free formula.

Most of us want a nice tan in the summer but don't want to sacrifice our skin to do so. So what do we do? We shop the self tanners! SCARY! Especially when you end up with orange palms, streaky legs, and those crazy, blotchy elbows. On my life long quest for the perfect self-tanner, I have experienced every horror story you can imagine, but today I have good news! I struck gold at Bath and Body Works...literally. Their Gold Strike Tinted Self-Tanner is amazing. No streaks, no horrible odor, no orange knuckles, and the most natural brown color you have ever seen. Apply at night and then follow up the next morning with Keri's Shea Butter Body Lotion for glistening, glowing skin. Talk about a Dynamic Duo!!

Sweat Happens! We can't stop working out just because its 100 degrees outside, but with all that sweat can come pesky little breakouts. Especially around the hairline, chest, and back. The key to staying clear is immediate treatment; waiting too long to cleanse is the culprit. Carry Pond's Cleansing Towelettes with you to your beach volleyball match, for a deep clean right away. Then follow up with Mary Kay's Blemish Control Toner when you get home. Promise it works....
