Can y’all believe that summer is upon us?! With the change of the seasons, I typically switch up my beauty routine. Now that it’s been warmer and I’ve been spending more time outdoors, summer skincare is at the top of my mind! I wish I could say I use SPF every single day, regardless of the season, but I don’t. (I know, I know. 🙈) It’s something I continue to work on! But for warmer months, it’s absolutely a priority! So, today we’re talking my summer morning skincare routine. These are all the products I swear by to keep my skin hydrated and protected!
First thing after getting out of bed I always start by cleansing my face. My skin can be a little sensitive, so I prefer to use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip my skin. I also try to use room temperature to cool water. It helps wake me up, and is less damaging and drying on skin than hot water!
2. Vitamin C Serum
Next, I follow up with my fav Vitamin C serum. I actually quit using this product over the winter while trying several other new products. And y’all, when I added it back into my routine? HOLY MOLY. I could instantly tell a difference. My face is more hydrated, has less redness, and the tone is just more even.
3. Moisturize with SPF
This step is easily the most important! Gotta get in that SPF, right?! For the past month, I have been using Olay Total Effects SPF 15. What I love about it is that it applies sheer (no white tint like others I’ve used!!), and is so lightweight on the skin. I love that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. It also has seven benefits in one like enhancing skin brightness, evening skin tone, minimizing the look of pores, and SPF of course! It is packed with vitamins and leaves my skin with a glow-y look. Who doesn’t want that?! (Snag some for yourself at Walgreen’s or online here!)
4. Facial Oil
Lastly, I like to follow up my moisturizer with a facial oil. I’ll be honest: this isn’t a step I do every single day. I prefer to use my facial oil at nighttime so it has plenty of time to absorb. Buuut, if my skin is feeling a little extra dry, then adding a facial oil after my moisturizer is the perfect last step to really seal in the effects of my moisturizer!
If I’m not wearing any makeup that day, I’m ready to head out! For makeup days, I just follow with my typical makeup routine after I’ve allowed the products to set in my skin!
Tell me about your summer morning skincare routine! Do you wear SPF daily?
